Four return for Leipzig ahead of Bayer clash

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig have confirmed that the quartet of Jean-Kevin Augustin, Dayot Upamecano, Ibrahima Konaté and Diego Demme could be available for selection after injury, ahead of Saturday’s clash with Bayer Leverkusen.

The four players were involved in training on Tuesday with Augustin overcoming his hamstring injury, Upamecano recovering from a knee concern, Konaté cured of muscular issues while Demme has also been given the all-clear.

Speaking about Augustin, coach Ralph Hasenhüttl told Kicker, “With JK is nice that he can train again. He has not yet gone through everything, but have tried to integrate him and it was possible without any problems.”

Meanwhile, Hasenhüttl rested star creative forward Emil Forsberg in Tuesday’s training session after his heroics in helping Sweden qualify for the 2018 World Cup after something of a shock victory over Italy in a playoff qualifier.

He added, “I left him at home today, he should have a good night’s sleep. For Emil, of course, it’s a huge story – we all shivered in front of the TV.”

The Bulls will face Die Werkself in this weekend’s Bundesliga encounter at the BayArena in Leverkusen.
