RB Leipzig will be without Captain Yussuf Poulsen, after suffering a ligament injury on Sunday for at least part of the rest of the season. Captain Yussuf Poulsen was affirmed by RB Leipzig to have sustained ligament damage in his correct ankle that will keep him down and out. Poulsen sustained the injury in the initial 20 minutes of Sunday’s 5-0 Mainz defeat before proceeding to score one goal and set two more.
“During the match against Mainz 05 our forward Yussuf Poulsen sustained a ligament injury in his correct ankle,” a statement read on the club’s official site.
“He’ll be sidelined until further notification, which was the consequence of a Monday scan.”
Leipzig climbed to third with his victory against Mainz however Nagelsmann anticipates a tough challenge against in-structure Hertha, which has won two out of two since the appointment of Bruno Labbadia in April.
“It’s hard to foresee anything about Hertha as it’s simply their third game under Bruno Labbadia,” Nagelsmann said at a news gathering on Monday.
“They ‘re probably going to kick back and play on the break. Vedad Ibisevic is the ideal player for that. “I’m happy to see Bruno back in the Bundesliga with his passion. He’s fortified the organization in such a brief timeframe. However, tomorrow we want to end Hertha’s run and expand on our Mainz results.’
