Leipzig will try four home games in Bundesliga. It’s for the team to get ready for another three points. The coach of the team said that he wants to win and take easy 3 points.


Possible line-up against Bochum

Adams started Leipzig’s first three games of the Bundesliga season, but has been in and out of the side ever since either through Jesse Marsch’s choice or injury. The US international returned to the side as a substitute in the midweek UEFA Champions League loss to Club Brugge, though, and is a candidate to be rotated into the starting line-up on Matchday 7. Josko Gvardiol and Angelino could also come back in, having impressed on the left-hand side in Leipzig’s crushing 6-0 win over Hertha Berlin last weekend. Andre Silva is another option in attack, but midfielder Dani Olmo remains on the sidelines. Happily for Marsch – who is chasing only his second win as a Bundesliga head coach – Christopher Nkunku is in the form of his life. The former PSG midfielder has produced seven goals and three assists in nine competitive appearances so far this season.


Leipzig will try to do better than Hertha

Leipzig’s dismantling of Hertha will have set alarm bells ringing at Bochum. It’s less than two weeks since the promoted club suffered a chastening 7-0 loss at record champions Bayern Munich, their goals-against column taking a potentially costly hit even at this early juncture in the campaign. In more positive news, the ensuing goalless draw with VfB Stuttgart means they begin the weekend a point above rock-bottom Greuther Fürth, as one of the clutch of clubs within touching distance of mid-table. Unlike his Leipzig counterpart, head coach Thomas Reis isn’t exactly blessed in the personnel department, especially with talismanic striker Simon Zoller out for the foreseeable future. All signs point to the 47-year-old sticking with the same starting XI that shut out a Stuttgart team Leipzig beat 4-0 on Matchday 2.
