RB Leipzig will be looking to get back on track in the Bundesliga this weekend after slipping to a second defeat in three matches. Heidenheim will be the visitors to the Red Bull Arena, as they chase a fourth victory of the season.
The main aim for RB Leipzig this term will be to finish in a Champions League spot, meaning that they can ill-afford too many slip ups this term. They have already appeared to be too easy to beat in the Bundesliga this term, as they have suffered three defeats in their opening 12 matches. However, a return to winning ways this weekend would move them up to fourth in the standings.
Leipzig will need to rediscover their form, as they have suffered defeats in two of their previous three matches in the competition. Their latest setback was suffered last weekend, as they were beaten on the road by Wolfsburg. Leipzig dominated that fixture, but they lacked the quality in the final third to win maximum points after scoring just once from nine shots on target.
There will also be pressure on Heidenheim this weekend, as the German side sits just above the bottom three spots at this stage of the season. To this point, they have recorded three victories from their opening 12 matches, and they have allowed 26 goals already this term.
Their recent form would also be a concern coming into this weekend, as they have suffered three defeats in the last five matches in the Bundesliga. However, they at least got back to some kind of solid form last weekend, as they played out a hard-fought draw against Bochum in front of their home fans. But, Heidenheim appeared to lack the quality in the final third to make the breakthrough in that clash.
