RB Leipzig wants to make an assault with a victory at Borussia Mönchengladbach at the top of the table for the Bundesliga. "It would be a nice side effect, even if it would not be significant, but obviously it is more pleasant to look at the table when you are at the top," said RB coach Julian Nagelsmann during a press conference on Wednesday. Leipzig is currently behind second-placed Borussia Dortmund in second place and will play Friday night (20.30 clock / Dazn) in Gladbach. In the previous six games in the Bundesliga, Borussia made only two draws.
Nagelsmann has great respect for the new Gladbach coach Marco Rose. "We don't know each other personally, but I think a lot about him, the way Salzburg played and also the things he's bringing to Gladbach, which is exceptionally good," Nagelsmann said of the Leipzig native.
Leipzig is the absolute best in the Bundesliga, which started with two wins in two games. A development that could not have been foreseen after the conflicting results of the preparation. "We have made progress, but we have had phases in all the games where we were not 100%. As long as we win, we can take this development time," said Nagelsmann.
