It’s time to pick up points on the road in the Bundesliga again! Following the 2-1 win over Zenit in the Europa League on Thursday night, Die Roten Bullen return to league action on Sunday at 15:30 to face VfB Stuttgart. Last year’s newly-promoted side are currently 9th in the table and around 1,200 RBL fans are expected to travel south for the matchday 26 encounter.
- "Stuttgart have found their feet since the start of the Rückrunde and are in a good run of form. The game won't be decided on possession but rather the work done defensively.
- "We can get something from Stuttgart, but we won't get a lot of opportunities. We have a good record in stadiums where not a lot of people have won this season.
- "If we can start like we did against Zenit, be clinical up front and stable at the back then and cool in the midfield. Efficiency will be most important of all."
- "It really motivated me to be able to play against Stuttgart. Of course I want to help Leipzig be successful, but I also want to show what I have turned into since I left my hometown. I’m really looking forward to seeing my friends and family.
- "This will be the first time I have played in Stuttgart against VfB and it will be very special to come back to the city where I was born. But I live in Leipzig now, and the club and the fans have done so much to ensure I never get homesick. I am very happy here and that gives me complete confidence in my performances."
