The match that I believe could define RB Leipzig status in the Bundesliga.Umjaka – I ❤️ the #WEEK&⚽️
It’s an incredible story and an incredible rise for Red Bull Leipzig, who were founded only 10 years ago.
It’s even harder to believe that this is only the fifth season in the Bundesliga, considering that they have been in the contenders conversations since their promotion in 2016.
Are they the official number 3 team of the German top flight? This position has been swapped between clubs such as Werder Bremen, Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen and even Wolfsburg in recent years.
We all know who FC Bayern München is in the German football dynasty. The Bavarians are not only the record-holder of German titles, but they are also the team that has truly mounted a challenge to some of Europe’s giants.
Every now and then, Borussia Dortmund have popped up not only in the domestic platform, but they have also done their bit on the European stage too.
NEW vs OLD SCHOOL
From being a perennial assistant coach, Hansi Flick, the Bayern head coach is now a treble winning head coach and in charge of possibly the most feared team in the world at the moment.
He will be going up against RB Leizig head coach Julian Nagelsman, who is arguably the best young manager in European football at the moment due to his exploits with Hoffenheim and Leipzig. – Lihle Ndindwa, South Africa
