RB Leipzig will play in the Champions League round of 16 against Liverpool on Tuesday evening - in Budapest. Coach Julian Nagelsmann does not want to discuss this. The focus is on the sporty. And there he sees his team at eye level, but makes this dependent on a few factors.
Julian Nagelsmann did not want to take part in the dispute between Bayern Munich's coach Hansi Flick and the SPD health expert Karl Lauterbach about the sense and nonsense of traveling in professional football on Monday. "I am abstaining from the discussion, you can fight things out internally," said Leipzig's coach at the press conference before the first leg of the first leg in the Champions League against Liverpool. This game is also known to be criticized because both teams are moving to Budapest due to the German corona entry regulations and will meet there on Tuesday in the Ferenc-Puskas-Arena.
pursuers fight for points: BVB demanded in Freiburg

In the afternoon conference four of the first five pursuers are at the start.
"I can at least understand that it is being questioned," said Nagelsmann in the kicker interview, understanding of the critical voices: "I have often emphasized that we in football are very happy to be able to do our job in these times, and that Every industry is happy when things progress in their area. And I can of course understand that for people in retail, for example, who cannot do their job and cannot earn any money, it is tough and sometimes a moody mood arises. "
Leipzig wants to ensure a positive atmosphere in its own ranks with a sense of achievement against the ailing English champions with his coach Jürgen Klopp. For Nagelsmann, this round of 16 is the second meeting with Liverpool and Klopp. In 2017 he had no chance with Hoffenheim in the play-offs for the Champions League, retired after a 1: 2 and 2: 4. At that time, the balance of power was clear from the start, this time the outcome appears to be open. But although his team has recently won four times in a row and Liverpool have lost five of their last seven competitive games, Nagelsmann describes the opponent "based on international experience as an easy favorite. But I see ourselves as that on a top day with a top Performance and a cohesive team effort to meet Liverpool on an equal footing ".

Forsberg will be absent - Kluivert could intervene again
The fact remains that Klopp has to compensate for enormous injury problems, especially in defense, and his team is mentally drained , while RB has recently been quite stable and has comparatively few personnel concerns. However, Emil Forsberg is missing an important offensive player. The Swede, who started all six group games, is still suffering from a ligament stretch in his knee and therefore did not even start the journey on Monday. On the other hand, Justin Kluivert and Benjamin Henrichs have recovered from their injuries, at least the Dutch striker is also eligible for a partial deployment.
second leg also in Budapest?
It is currently still completely unclear whether Liverpool can play the second leg on March 7th at their home Anfield. According to the Saxon Corona Protection Ordinance, a two-week quarantine is required when entering from Great Britain, there are no exception rules, for example for professional athletes. As a precautionary measure, UEFA has therefore asked Liverpool to look for an alternative location. The decision on where to play should be made on March 1st. Maybe a second time in Budapest.
