Fürth (dpa / lby) – Trainer Stefan Leitl from SpVgg Greuther Fürth expects chances in the upcoming duel with RB Leipzig despite being an outsider. “It is not an impossible task,” said Leitl on Thursday with a view to the game in the Champions League participants on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky). His team wanted to cause a surprise with a “courageous and disciplined appearance”.
The shamrocks are aiming for their first win of the season against the Saxons. With only one point after eight match days, they are bottom of the table. Above all, the offensive orientation of the Leipzigers could open up opportunities for the Fürth, explained Leitl. Switching moments are particularly important. “If we win the ball and play forward with determination, we can be dangerous.”
The yellow-banned midfielder Paul Seguin will miss the newcomer at the weekend. But central defender Maximilian Bauer has been back in team training since Wednesday after his head injury and “of course” is an option, reported Leitl.
