LEP Vs PDB Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: A Champions League spot emerges as the only thing left for RB Leipzig to fight for this season
A string of draws was the demise of RB Leipzig in the ongoing edition of the Bundesliga. From being in charge of the title battle as they held all the aces to plummeting down into third place, RB Leipzig have only themselves to blame for the woeful form which has stuck them since the turn of the year.
Drawing three of their five encounters, RB Leipzig currently find themselves 11 point behind Bayern Munich. It’s way too mammoth a deficit for the side to erase, one which has all but put to bed their aspirations of challenging for the glistening trophy any more.
Only a spot in the top 4 is left to fight for the RB Leipzig, one the club would be ardently looking to consolidate on at the earliest plausible. Also, with news of Timo Werner having all but assured himself of a move to Chelsea taking over the club’s proceedings at the moment, the side will be looking to bring back focus on the field with an emphatic win today.
Defeating Koln 4-2 the last time around to break free of their dormant drawing rut, RB Leipzig showed what they are truly capable of in the attacking side of the game. And up against a Paderborn side which was trashed 6-1 the last time around, RB Leipzig will be cantering their way to the three points in what will be a comprehensive win for them.

LEP Vs PDB Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Leopold Zingerle from Paderborn is going to be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper for this tie. In a team riddled with defensive errors with the side conceding the most goals at 61, the player has emerged as the only source of solace given his worldclass brand of shot stopping.
LEP Vs PDB Dream11 Defenders
When the second most effective defensive unit faces off against bottom placed Paderborn, the likelihood of a cleansheet for RB Leipzig is extremely high today. The side has allowed past it a mere 31 goals in the league while Paderborn on the other hand have managed to string together a measly 32 goals in the same time.
It’s a narrative which will see us indulge in a trio of defensive picks from the side with us opting for the services of the guile filled Angelino, Nordi Mukiele and Lukas Klostermann for the outing.
LEP Vs PDB Dream11 Midfielders
Currently sitting on 13 assists in the ongoing edition of the league, RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku was always going to be someone we were going to opt for today. The player has utilised his penchant for scoring as well with his goal for the side the last time around taking his tally upto the five goals this season.
We will be partnering him up with Marcel Sabitzer who has come up with the 9 goals and 6 assists with the two set to rip into shreds a Paderborn side which has conceded on a horrendous 61 occasions. On the other hand, our partnership from the visiting side will comprise of Klaus Gjasula and Sebastian Vasiliadis, two players who affinity towards defending will see them rope in a slew of tackles and blocks.
LEP Vs PDB Dream11 Strikers
The scorer of a behemoth 25 goals for his side, RB Leipzig’s top scorer saw his electric form earn him a move to one of Europe’s most pristine clubs. With news yesterday filtering in of Timo Werner set to move to Chelsea next season, the latest development came as an unprecedented move given the player’s likelihood to link up with Liverpool.
With his future confirmed now, the striker will be looking to show why he was snagged by the London club to see us make him our first pick here. After scoring for two straight matches, 9 goal man Patrik Schick joins up as well while the home side is represented by top scorer Dennis Srbeny who has piled on the five goals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 25 goals see Werner lead our side out as the captain while Schick is the vice-captain.
