“It’s a great feeling to know that the fans are so happy and are shouting ‘We are top of the league!’ after the game,” said Leipzig captain Willi Orban following his side's Matchday 13 victory over FC Schalke 04.
The defender refused to be drawn as to whether the eastern German outfit could stay unbeaten before the winter break, but is aware he and his team-mates face a tough task to do so, with fixtures against FC Ingolstadt 04, Hertha Berlin and Bayern still to come.
Hoffenheim, currently in fourth place, are likewise enjoying their fantastic start to the campaign. "It's no accident that we're up there," said sporting director Alexander Rosen following the side's 4-0 thrashing of 1. FC Köln – a team that had conceded just eight goals prior to their meeting on Matchday 13.
"It's amazing that we're still unbeaten," Rosen continued. "We probably won't manage it for all 34 league games this season, but we're certainly going to give it a try."
