After a disappointing start to the season in the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig’s UEFA Champions League campaign began in a similar fashion when they lost (1-4) at home to Shakhtar Donetsk midweek.
This Champions League defeat proved to be the end of Domenico Tedesco’s work, and Leipzig brandished an ax before this clash.
Marco Rose was quickly confirmed as the new head coach, stating in a press conference, “I’ve never managed a team during a season, but the structure here is very good.”
With recent good league play at home, Rose is hopeful that the foundation already laid can bring in the much-needed three points here.
Dortmund’s Champions League campaign started in great form with a 3-0 thrashing of Copenhagen, which was a perfect start in Group G.
Dortmund have also been good on the domestic scene and will look to continue.
Going one step further from second place, which Dortmund have achieved in two of those three seasons, will not be easy given Bayern Munich are aiming to win an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title.
However, early signs are encouraging and a win here will see the team pick up three Bundesliga away victories to open their campaign for the first time since 2010/11.
