RB Leipzig making waves in debut Bundesliga campaign

Fifth in the table, still unbeaten and with nine points in the bank: Six games into their debut Bundesliga campaign, RB Leipzig have wasted little time adjusting to life at German football's top table.

Widely tipped to flourish from the off, the nascent heavyweights from Saxony's biggest city are thus far doing justice to that prognosis, having become the first Bundesliga newcomer not to lose any of their first six league matches. Leipzig's spectacular rise through the ranks since starting out at fifth-tier level in 2009 has not been universally well received by the nation's football community but the team's all-action attacking style has garnered praise from all quarters in recent weeks.
