THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig's flying start to the season has stalled in recent weeks, with two defeats and one draw in their last three games in all competitions.
  • Midfielder Kevin Kampl returned to full training this week and could be involved but Ibrahima Konate, Patrik Schick, Tyler Adams, Hannes Wolf and Ethan Ampadu have all been ruled out.
  • Yussuf Poulsen will be recalled up front having started on the bench against Bayer Leverkusen two weeks ago and Christopher Nkunku is also pushing for a start after coming on and scoring.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Gulacsi; Upamecano, Mukiele, Orban; Klostermann, Sabitzer, Nkunku, Laimer, Halstenberg; Werner, Poulsen

Unavailable: Wolf (Injured), Adams (Injured), Konate (Injured), Schick (Injured), Ampadu (Injured)

Doubtful: Kampl (Injured)

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg are the only team still unbeaten in the Bundesliga and they also have the meanest defence in the league, having conceded just four goals in seven games.
  • Admir Mehmedi has been ruled out after sustaining a muscle strain on international duty with Switzerland, with Felix Klaus in line to take his place in attack.
  • Centre-back John Brooks is fit again but coach Oliver Glasner may keep faith with the current back three, while left-back Jerome Roussillon is set to return to the side.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Pervan; Bruma, Tisserand, Knoche; William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon; Klaus, Weghorst, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Ginczek (Injured), Casteels (Injured), Schlager (Injured), Paulo Otavio (Injured), Mehmedi (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

The Bundesliga's only unbeaten team and best defence will be looking to keep it tight again in what, on paper, is their toughest test of the season. Leipzig generally do not concede many at home themselves, and five of the six previous meetings between the two sides have seen fewer than three goals.
