Stadium: Red Bull Arena Leipzig
The second round of the German Bundesliga will open with the match between Leipzig and Stuttgart, in which the home team is considered to be the favorite. Leipzig looked poor in the first round, while Stuttgart got off to a strong start once again.
The result of the match against Mainz, as well as the level of the Bulls, was surprising. A week before the start of the Bundesliga 2021/22, Leipzig defeated the Sandhausen, the team of the Bundesliga League 2. By the way, not all clubs of the elite German division coped with the task of getting through the first round of the German Cup, many played extra time with weaker teams, some matches even had penalty shootouts.
Against Mainz, Marsh played in a 4-2-3-1 with Silva at the spearhead. In general, the Bulls had the advantage throughout the match, which was not surprising. With such performance and statistics, it will be very difficult for Leipzig to fight not only with Bayern for the title, but also with other teams for a place in the Champions League zone. Did the Leipzig managers make a mistake in appointing Marsh as head coach of this German team?
For Stuttgart, this season is the second in a row in the elite. We should recall that Matarazzo's team also got off to a good start in the Bundesliga a year ago. In the first round, the team lost to Freiburg. Stuttgart started the 2021/22 season mega powerfully. First, in the first round of the German Cup they defeated Dynamo. Iin the first round of the German championship they crushed the newcomer to the german elite, Greuter Fürth, outplaying the Bavarians 5-1. Kalajdzic did not participate in that game, but it didn't prevent them from scoring five times in the match. Two goals were scored by Kempf, who outplayed Karazor, Al-Gaddioui and Endo on 9 minutes, and three goals were scored by Sosa. By the way, an interesting detail, both clubs are coached by American specialists.
