After losing to Dortmund in their last game in the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig will be looking to bounce back to their impressive form when they host Hamburger SV at the Red Bull Arena in the 20th round of the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig Looking To Bounce Back
The hosts have been impressive since the start of the season. The team have been head to head with Bayern Munich at the top of the table for the majority of the campaign. They will be looking to get back to their winning ways after their defeat last time out. RB Leipzig have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Borussia Dortmund away from home where they lost 1-0.
RB Leipzig are currently sitting in the 2nd place in the league table. They have 42 points from 13 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. The team scored 36 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the season.
Dayot Upamecano could make his starting debut and replace the suspended Marvin Compper. Stefan Ilsanker provides another option to replace Copper in the back-four, with Diego Demme ready to fill in in midfield in this case.
Hamburg Are Struggling
The visitors have been struggling at the other end of the table since the start of the season. The team have started the season on the wrong foot as they kept fighting in the relegation zone for the first weeks in the Bundesliga. Hamburg have collected a total of 6 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Bayer 04 Leverkusen at home where they won 1-0.
Hamburg are currently sitting in the 16th place in the league table. They have 16 points from 4 wins, 4 draws and 11 losses. They have scored 16 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Albin Ekdal and Wallace compete for a spot in central midfield. Nicolai Müller is still doubtful with a thigh injury and could be replaced by Luca Waldschmidt.
Head To Head
The last game that featured the two sides was on 17th of September 2016 when RB Leipzig smashed Hamburg with four goals to nil away from home in the reverse fixture.
