Leipzig Coach Jesse Marsch is putting his runners-up RB Leipzig professionals under pressure before the game against Borussia Dortmund, despite the tense sporting situation.
“A win against Dortmund is almost a must. It’s time for us to show another great performance and to win against a top opponent, ”said the 47-year-old coach of the Bundesliga club.
Before the eleventh match day, Leipzig was only eighth with 15 points and thus well below its own claims. They want to use the momentum from the 2-2 in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain in the game against BVB on Saturday (6.30 p.m. / Sky).
Marsch on the defensive must choose an emergency option. Because after Lukas Klostermann, defense chief Willi Orban is now also not available. The feared muscle fiber tear in the thigh has not been confirmed, however. “It’s a minor strain. We were lucky, ”said Marsch. Orban and Klostermann will be available again after the international break.
