KOL Vs LEP Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: RB Leipzig’s aspirations of winning an unprecedented title all but in the mud now
They found themselves on a drawing spree before the Bundesliga broke off due to Coronavirus and unfortunately for RB Leipzig, nothing has changed since the turn of the break. Drawing two of their last three encounters in the league, the side finds itself currently the 12 points behind Bayern Munich at the moment.
Also, with the side around them all tasting consummate success this gameweek, RB Leipzig currently side themselves shunted out of the top 4 as well. Currently as down as fifth spot, the side has gone from reigning supreme in the points tally to standing in fear of losing out of a Champions League spot in the ensuing season.
Where things have been in a quandary for RB Leipzig, elsewhere, Koln’s’ quagmire hasn’t gotten any better either. The side ended up dropping to 11th place after being routed 3-1 by Hoffenheim the last time around, a result which now sees the side currently winless in its last four outings in the 2020 edition of the Bundesliga.
For Koln, the main plight has been stopping the leak in its paper thin backline. The fracas has results in the side’s wayward spiral, a predicament which saw them ship four goals to RB Leipzig the last time these two met.
And nothing will change today either with us envisioning RB Leipzig finally souring their way to a much yearned for three points in what will be a complete decimation of Koln.

KOL Vs LEP Dream11 Defenders
While they have kept just one cleansheet since the Bundesliga has restarted, RB Leipzig still find themselves as the most pristine backline in the league. The side has let in a mere 29 goals, emerging as this season’s most well versed backline, one endowed with a string of myriad and guile filled names.
And responsible for this stringent backline has been the trivalent we’ll be indulging in for this affair. In Angelino, Dayot Upamecano and Lukas Klostermann, the side has three diminutive names, players who’ll rope in another cleansheet for the side on the day.
