Borussia Mochengladbach Vs RB Leipzig: See How Both Teams Could possibly Lineup

An interesting clash awaits when Leipzig travel to take on Gladbach in a meeting between two of the Bundesliga's biggest sides and with two managers who really fancy high pressing,attractive football in Marco Rose and Julian Nagelsmann.


Mochengladbach gave up a 2:0 lead in midweek against Real Madrid and Leipzig didn't fair much better with a 5:0 thumping in the hands of Manchester United. We could see both teams rotate their lineups with crucial clashes still to come in the UCL. We look at some players who could be key in today's tie.


Marcus Thuram (Borussia Mochengladbach): Pace, Power and Technique. Marcus Thuram could be on the move very soon, he's a very key player for Gladbach.


Generally playing off the left of the attack, he'll look to be on the shoulder of the last man and is always looking for the ball in behind. With Leipzig being very aggressive with their press this match looks set up for Thuram to have a very big impact on the game and possibly get on the scoresheet.


It'll be interesting to see how Leipzig try to cope with him.

Youssuf Poulsen(RB Leipzig)

The Danish international was kept quiet by the United defence last time out but he'll be relishing this tie and will be looking to get on the scoresheet here, especially with Sorloth breathing down his neck.


He's extremely Influential for Nagelsmann's side as they look to win the ball high up and he's also very strong in the air, offering them an outlet against a Gladbach side that could also look to press high.


We expect a high scoring tie at the Borussia Park with both teams very keen on playing front foot football and taking the initiative.

RB Leipzig have had the better of meetings between both sides in recent times, but home advantage and the strain on both sides due to the packed fixture schedule means a draw could be more likely.
