Bad setback for RB before the top game against Leverkusen!
Emil Forsberg (29) will not be available for the cops on Saturday (6.30 p.m.) in a direct duel with the Champions League competitor. The Swede got a knock on the knee in training on Wednesday and is shaking for the cup game against Bochum on Tuesday.
Bad news for Julian Nagelsmann (33)! The RB coach has to do without one of his best players – and there is a risk of even more failures! Kevin Kampl (30) could also be absent against his ex-club.
The midfield veteran, who missed out in Mainz (2: 3), has still not completely cured his bruise. After all: Leverkusen also has personnel concerns. Midfield engine Nadiem Amiri (24) tested positive for the corona virus.
The preparation shows how important the duel is for the cops. Nagelsmann invited his professionals to a one-hour video session on the Monday that was actually not training.
The coach: “It’s still about qualifying for the Champions League. With a win we can extend our lead over Bayer to six points. If we lose, Leverkusen pulls by. It’s not the all-important game, but an important one for us. “
Now, of all times, Nagelsmann has to do without Forsberg.
