RB Leipzig


Danny Latza: Frustration, analysis and moving on

4-0 down at half time and 6-1 at full time. Schalke 04 suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig on Tuesday evening (24/01), with an especially disappointing first-half performance. “It was a disastrous first half. We hardly won any duels and weren’t awake at all,” captain Danny Latza summarised the game.

Thomas Reis: We need the same mentality we had against Frankfurt

RB Leipzig will visit the VELTINS-Arena on Tuesday night (24/1) on matchday 17. The first home game of 2023 will kick off at 18:30 CET. Thomas Reis is hoping his side can perform like they did against Eintracht Frankfurt last time out, albeit with a different result. “We won’t climb the table just by receiving praise from our opponents. We have to start picking up points,” explained the head coach.


Ralf Fährmann: We defended set pieces badly

Both head coaches spoke to the media after Schalke’s 3-0 defeat to RB Leipzig on Saturday (6/2). Ralf Fährmann and Shkodran Mustafi also gave their thoughts on the game.

Christian Gross: We want to shake off our ‘unlucky losers’ tag

Schalke’s decent performance in the DFB-Pokal round of 16 at VfL Wolfsburg wasn’t enough for progression on Wednesday night. Nonetheless, head coach Christian Gross took the positives from the defeat, stressing ahead of the home game against RB Leipzig (6/2, 15:30 CET): “We want to shake off our ‘unlucky losers’ tag and win our games.”


Manuel Baum: We’ll get through this situation together

After his first match as head coach of the Royal Blues, Manuel Baum spoke to the media about the 4-0 defeat in Leipzig (3/10). Salif Sané and RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann also offered their thoughts.

RB Leipzig: Lurking in second

After four competitive games without a win, RB Leipzig put the bad run behind them with a 3-0 victory over Werder Bremen last weekend. The small dip in form after the winter break may have cost them first place, but they continue to lurk just one point behind industry leaders Bayern München – remaining very-much in contention for the first title in the club’s short history.


Rabbi Matondo: An unbelievable feeling

David Wagner was proud of his side after the win in Leipzig, while Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann was frustrated with his team’s poor decision making. Rabbi Matondo was especially happy after scoring his first ever Bundesliga goal. Amine Harit also spoke to schalke04.de after he scored for the third game in a row too.
