Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Leipzig and Greuther Furth square off against each other at Red Bull Arena in a David-vs-Goliath clash. The Red Bulls produced a fine display against PSG at Parc des Princes, but Leo Messi and Co. eventually won the match. Leipzig are desperate to return to winning ways, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to do so. Important attacker Dani Olmo remains in the recovery room, alongside Marcel Halstenberg, Brian Brobbey, and Marcelo Saracchi.
The newcomers, on the other hand, are determined to secure the Bundesliga survival. Greuther Furth, though, do not seem to be competitive at this level, and given their display in a 1-0 loss to Bochum, anything but a routine win at Red Bull Arena would be a major surprise. Paul Seguin serves a one-game ban, while all Havard Nielsen, Maximilian Bauer, Robin Kehr, Gideon Jung, and Jessic Ngankam are out of contention with injuries for the visiting team.
