THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig will be on a high after progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, and they have only lost one of their last 16 league games.
  • Coach Nagelsmann could be without a recognised centre-back as Upamecano is suspended, Orban and Konate are still sidelined, and Ampadu is struggling with a back problem.
  • Adams is expected to be recalled to the starting line-up and Forsberg is also pushing for a start after scoring against Tottenham on Tuesday.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gulacsi; Mukiele, Klostermann, Halstenberg; Adams, Sabitzer, Laimer, Angelino; Nkunku, Werner; Schick

Unavailable: Kampl (Injured), Konate (Injured), Orban (Injured), Upamecano (Suspended)

Doubtful: Ampadu (Injured)

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg climbed back up to eighth thanks to a 3-1 win at home to Union Berlin last Saturday but Streich's side have won just one of their last 10 away league games.
  • That win came at a cost as left-back Gunter picked up an injury which has ruled him out for now, so either Schlotterbeck or Itter – who made his debut last weekend – will deputise.
  • Haberer has been ruled out again and captain Frantz remains a doubt, so Koch and Hofler will occupy the central midfield slots again.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Schwolow; Heintz, Gulde, Lienhart; Schmidt, Koch, Hofler, Schlotterbeck; Sallai, Petersen, Grifo

Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Kwon Chang-Hoon (Injured), Abrashi (Injured), Haberer (Injured), Gunter (Injured)

Doubtful: Frantz (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

RB Leipzig have won all three of their previous meetings with Freiburg at the Red Bull Arena, with frontman Werner scoring in each one. Given that the visitors have not kept a clean sheet on their travels since September, the Germany international has every chance of adding to his tally.
