RB Leipzig play host to Borussia Monchengladbach in round 15 of the Bundesliga

Fresh off the back of an impressive win over Manchester City, RB Leipzig play host to Borussia Monchengladbach in round 15 of the Bundesliga.

The visitors, meanwhile, were steamrolled 6-0 by Freiburg on home turf last time out and will be desperate to restore some pride.

RB Leipzig secured qualification for the Europa League last time out as they claimed an impressive 2-1 win over Premier League champions Manchester City.

Achim Beierlorzer’s side will now turn their attention to the Bundesliga. They have failed to pick up any points in each of their last three games, losing to Hoffenheim, Bayer Leverkusen and Union Berlin in succession.

With 18 points from 14 games, Leipzig are 11th in the Bundesliga table, level on points with Frankfurt and Saturday’s visitors.

Meanwhile, Borussia Monchengladbach failed to return to winning ways last time out as they suffered a humbling 6-0 home defeat against Freiburg.

This followed a 4-1 loss at the hands of FC Koln which saw their four-game winless run across all competitions come to an end.

Adolf Hütter’s men will now head into Saturday’s game seeking to avoid falling to a third consecutive defeat for the first time since March.
