Former German international Lothar Matthäus has backed Julian Nagelsmann’s RB Leipzig to win their first Bundesliga title this season.
RB Leipzig currently sits second on the 2020/21 Bundesliga table with a game in hand which could see them go top of the pile.
Die Roten Bullen have continued their fine form after reaching the semi- finals of the champions league last season, leading the former Inter midfielder to throw his weight behind them.
Lothar Matthäus said:
Nagelsmann is doing a top job, the team is young, has grown together and continues to learn from game to game. In the Champions League, RB have already proven that they can compete at the knockout stages, Matthäus told Sport Bild and added
I believe that Leipzig will win their first title this season and trust them to win the DFB-Pokal, for example. Their only danger is the possible unrest caused by transfer speculation surrounding players like [Marcel] Sabitzer and [Dayot] UpamecanoAdvertisement
