Prior to this match, Leipzig were boosted by the timely return of creative hub Dani Olmo, although he only came in for the final few minutes against Frankfurt and is unlikely to start.

Dominik Szoboszlai and Forsberg are slated to compete for the final slot in the forward trio, with Olmo only expecting to make the bench while Nkunku keeps his berth.
