RB Leipzig play host to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga Matchday 6 on Saturday. The visitors would move top of the table with a victory, while the hosts have only picked up five points from their first five matches, leading to them making a change in the managerial dugout. With Marco Rose’s appointment as Tedesco’s successor confirmed on Thursday, Die Roten Bullen’s players will be desperate to impress their new manager and avoid a third successive loss.
After a disastrous start to the season was compounded by a 4-1 drubbing at home to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League in midweek, Leipzig made the move to sack Domenico Tedesco on Wednesday. The 36-year-old enjoyed a decent debut season for Leipzig last time out, consolidating their place in the top four, before winning their first ever major trophy when they defeated Freiburg on penalties in the DFB-Pokal final.
However, that historic success did not earn him as much time as many felt it may after a slow start this season, with the nature of their last two defeats seemingly too much for the Red Bull ownership group to put up with. Having been thumped 4-0 away to Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend, Leipzig’s defense was routinely sliced open once again by Shakhtar on Tuesday.
Dortmund, on the other hand, look like they mean business with Edin Terzic back at the helm, having moved to replace Rose with their former interim boss during the summer. Barring the disastrous late collapse at home to Werder Bremen, when they squandered a two-goal lead with only one minute of normal play remaining to lose 3-2, it has been a faultless start from BVB, who have won each of their other four league games to sit level on points with Freiburg at the top of the Bundesliga heading into the weekend.
