STOPPAGE TIME

Simakan needs treatment as the board goes up to indicate five additional minutes. It can't end soon enough for Freiburg.

xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).

SO DOES NKUNKU!

Leipzig with the quick one-two, and Freiburg are picking themselves up off the canvas. Szoboszlai does really well to hold of his marker as he barrels in on goal. The pass across the box is weighted to perfection, and Nkunku makes no mistake with the finish - his Bundesliga-leading 12th of the season!
56'

SIMAKAN SCORES!

Flekken hits a pass straight out to Szoboszlai, who trades passes with Schlager before fizzing off a low strike the goalkeeper does well to tip round the post. Nkunku heads Halstenberg's corner against the bar, and Simakan fires in the rebound.

STRONG RIGHT HAND!

Szoboszlai plays in Nkunku. He has time to pick his spot, but Flekken narrows the angle and gets a firm right hand to the shot.

NO CHANGES

Both sides as they were at the start of the second half. How long before Streich shuffles his pack?

GOALLESS

Blaswich punches a corner clear, before the referee's whistle brings an intriguiging first half to an end. Leipzig were the superior of the two sides, but have been denied the opening goal by a combination of Flekken and the woodwork.
Half-time

PROCEED WITH CAUTION

Doan and Jeong are booked for a couple of niggling challenges. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Grifo on and Freiburg revert to a back four in the second half. They just haven't got going in the final third.

KOONKS!

Leipzig get the ball into the right-hand channel for Nkunku, whose shot across goal is blocked. Freiburg are up against it - haven't said that often this season.
39'

POST AGAIN!

A wry smile from Flekken as Szoboszlai strikes the goal frame direct from the ensuing corner. Really good spell for Leipzig, this...

FLEKKEN!

Orban goes up to meet a cross at the far post. His goal-bound header deflects off Lienhart's back, forcing Flekken to adjust and push the ball onto the woodwork.

ACCESS DENIED

Olmo with a brilliant ball into the feet of Silva in the box. He's forced away from goal, but still gets off a shot that goes behind for a corner. Freiburg get it away, though, which is no real surprise. They've conceded a league-low one goal from set-pieces this season.

WIDE!

Leipzig come again as Henrichs wins back possession on halfway. He exchanges passes with Szoboszlai on his way into the Freiburg area. Nkunku's crying out for it in the middle, but the Leipzig sub goes for goal and fires wide of the far post.
25'

SILVA!

The flag stays down as Silva brings Schlager's raking long pass under wraps, before dragging wide from just inside the area. He had more time, there.
24'

DEFENSIVE CHANGE

It's Henrichs, who gets the nod. He'll go to right-back, with Simakan moving inside alongside Orban.

POST!

So close for Leipzig. Szoboszlai sends Nkunku into the area. He clips the ball over the advancing Flekken, who's saved by the upright!

DEAD-BALL DANGER

We've already seen a few set-pieces from both sides. Freiburg are among the best in the business in that department.

TENTATIVE

The feelers are still out in Freiburg. The ball is largely centred in midfield.

"COURAGE AND LUCK"

Christian Streich has seen and done it all in the Bundesliga over the years so a visit to one of Europe's most in form teams won't ruffle his feathers. Nonetheless, the Freiburg tactician said ahead of this mouthwatering fixture, “We need a good game, perhaps also a bit of luck. But we will travel there will courage, conviction and with some good results behind us.”

"LEAVE IT ALL OUT THERE"

Marco Rose is ready to lead his Leipzig side out for the penultimate time this year and says his side will be watchful of Freiburg's tactics at the Red Bull Arena. "We need to be on it, we need to stay focussed," the 46-year-old explained. "We need to be attentive to the long balls and we need to react to the first and second balls. We will leave it all out there."

WHO BLINKS FIRST?

What better way to kick your feet back on a Wednesday night than by following one of the division's most exciting encounters. Leipzig and Freiburg have been flying of late, the latter ending the last matchday in second place in the Bundesliga and Die Rotten Bullen unbeaten in 11 games in all competitions.

TWO OF THE BEST

RB Leipzig have wings after a hot-and-cold start to the campaign. They're among the form teams, but there's a reason why Freiburg head into Matchday 14 as leaders Bayern Munich's closest pursuers. There's just five points between last season's DFB Cup finalists - join us for live match coverage from the Red Bull Arena!
