Die Roten Bullen are targetting a fourth win in a row following the Champions League victory over Porto. Next up, RBL play VfB Stuttgart tomorrow (15:30 CEST) at the Red Bull Arena.
Even though Stuttgart have been better at home than away, they are a side we are not going to underestimate. They defend very compactly so in comparison to Dortmund so I'm expecting us to have a lot more ball possession. Stuttgart is always looking for solutions on the field, so we'll be coming with a completely different gameplan to our past matches.
We've found our rhythm recently. We want to use that confidence to get the three points at home. We see home games as particularly important because we want to please the fans. We've built ourselves a little cushion recently so we're feeling confident. Whether the game turns out to be quite the spectacle of the last two, we'll see. I'd take a dirty win.
Timo Werner could make the starting line-up against Stuttgart, but Stefan Ilsanker is serving a suspension after his red card offence. He is the only player missing from the Leipzig squad. Sven Jablonkski from Bremen will referee the game.
