RB Leipzig face a tough test this weekend in Bundesliga play with seventh place Hoffenheim coming to town.
Tyler Adams has continued to show his versatility for Julian Nagelsmann’s side and should be on display once again. Adams played a strong 90 minutes in last weekend’s 1-1 draw vs. Paderborn, in what was a disappointing result for the current third place side.
With both Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach right on their tails in the top four race, Leipzig cannot afford to slip up once again at home. In his five appearances since the return of Bundesliga play, Adams has went the distance in two of those and could add to that total this weekend.
Elsewhere, Tyler Boyd and Besiktas are back in action in Turkey this weekend while Weston McKennie returns for Schalke in Bundesliga play. Alfredo Morales and Fortuna Dusseldorf face a tough test against Borussia Dortmund while Josh Sargent and Werder Bremen take on last-place Paderborn. Chris Richards and Terrence Boyd highlight the American contingent in German’s third tier as league play continues.
