After the bitter defeat on Tuesday in the Champions League, coach Marco Rose largely left his team alone and addressed the weak points on Thursday. “We sat down and readjusted. We addressed things as they were and are. Sure, one or the other is now looking more at us. We’re aware of that,” Rose said.
On Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) Leipzig will face VfL Bochum, which is threatened with relegation. Even before the first leg there had been a clear defeat with a 0:3 in Mönchengladbach. Then RB won against VfL and started a series of 18 games without defeat.
Rose does not necessarily gain insights from this: “The blueprint number is always difficult in football. You live as a person, as a team, from feelings, from phases. There are phases when you find it easier, then it gets harder. There are phases when you’re lucky and phases where you don’t put anyone in. You have to work with all things. Bochum’s first leg and the phase after that doesn’t help.” (dpa)
