Preview: Heidenehim vs RB Leipzig

The race for the top four continues as RB Leipzig travel to Voith-Arena to face Heidenheim on Saturday.

Last week Heidenheim earned a 1-1 draw against Bochum, a week after they defeated Bayern Munich 3-2 at home.

They current find themselves in 10th place in the league table and are now unbeaten in their last four matches.

They still have to play the current bottom three teams in their last five fixtures and are on course for an impressive top ten finish in their debut season in the Bundesliga.

They have a tough test coming next against RB Leipzig who have only lost once against them in the nine previous meetings and won the last fixture 2-1 four months ago.

Leipzig have recently come off the back of a comfortable 3-0 home win at the weekend due to goals from Dani Olmo, Benjamin Sesko and Lois Openda.

Marco Rose’s men are currently in fourth place in the league table but are only above Borussia Dortmund due to a greater goal difference, as both teams currently sit on 56 points.
