Leipzig approaches the match against Arminia sitting 9th in the standings, two points behind Mainz in the European Cup zone. The Bulls' home statistics are third in the division after Dortmund and Bayern.

This win slightly improved Arminia's standings, bringing the team two points closer to Augsburg. Now the handicap between the Arminia and the Bavarians is four points. The Bielefeld team's away statistics are 15th in the division, +1=2-4, 4-9 goal difference.
