RB does not stand for Red Bull

The official name of the team is "RasenBallsport Leipzig", which means "grass ball sports", because Germany also follows the rule imposed by UEFA and Red Bull Leipzig is a forbidden name because it comes from a brand name.

Watch out for this Union Berlin player

Taiwo Awoniyi, 24 year old Nigerian striker, has scored 8 goals for his team so far this season, he is distinguished by his speed and ball control when shooting at goal, his physique allows him to free himself from the mark and his movements in the area are lethal, the Leipzig defense will have to keep him close so he does not have a chance to score.
1:30 PM2 months ago

Watch out for this RB Leipzig player

Christopher Nkunku, 24 year old French midfielder, has become the goal referent this season, with 5 goals scored in his account he is a very dangerous player, his agility and corpulence allow him to get unmarked and create spaces in front of the goal, he has played all the games this season, which makes him even more dangerous because he has all the confidence of the coach and his teammates will look for him to go on the attack.

Union Berlin seeks to improve

The modest team of the capital is located in the sixth position with only one defeat more than the leader Bayern Munich, the team does not have a superstar, however with teamwork is being placed as a difficult team to defeat, their record this season is 5 wins, 5 draws and 3 defeats, although their goal is not the title or not to be relegated, This season they will seek to surpass what they have done in previous seasons and a place in the Europa League would be the next step to become a consolidated team that the capital of Germany deserves, in case of winning against Leipzig and a combination of results the team would be in European positions, however, this Friday's duel will not be easy, as we know the quality of Leipzig's players.

RB Leipzig rebuilding

The Leipzig team had three fantastic seasons since 20018, qualifying to the Champions League in each of them, stars like Timo Werner, Upamecano, Sabitzer, Konaté, among other great stars that due to their great seasons have migrated to other leagues, but with the departure of coach Nagelsmann the team has lowered its pace of play and with it positions in the table, although still maintaining a competitive squad, the adaptation to a new style is costing them because the results have not been as expected, they currently occupy eighth place in the league and are without chances of advancing to the round of 16 of the Champions League, the team must break the string of games with defeat in order to climb positions and not be left behind in the search for European positions.
