Date: Saturday 10th December Venue: Audi Sportpark Competition: Bundesliga KO: 14.30
Ingolstadt are without the suspended Markus Suttner for the visit of Leipzig.
New coach Maik Walpurgis will field a similar team to the one which lost to Werder Bremen last week.
Leipzig miss Kyriakos Papadapoulos, Lukas Klostermann and Bernardo.
Oliver Burke may get a chance on the right side of midfield.
This fixture pairs the two youngest football clubs in the Bundesliga. Ingolstadt were formed in 2004 whereas Leipzig were founded just five years after that. The two sides have had contrasting campaigns so far, Leipzig are sitting pretty at the top of the table and Ingolstadt are rock bottom.
It is Ingolstadt’s second season in the Bundesliga and they are finding it tough. A single win all season against fellow strugglers Darmstadt was a positive but last week’s loss to Bremen was hard to take and things won’t get any easier for them with the arrival of Leipzig.
Former Ingolstadt head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl brings his rampant Leipzig side to the Audi Sportpark knowing only a point is needed to remain top of the table. A win is likely however as Leipzig are flying winning their last eight Bundesliga games. Many thought the bubble might have burst by now but Leipzig are serious title contenders
Many thought the bubble might have burst by now but Leipzig are serious title contenders, their big test will be their final game of 2016 away at Bayern Munich.
Ingolstadt have not won a game at home all season.
Leipzig are one of only three teams in Europe who remain unbeaten in the league. The others are Hoffenheim and Real Madrid.
Emil Forsberg leads the Bundesliga assist chart with seven this season.
Ingolstadt: Hansen; Levels, Matip, Tisserand, Jung; Roger, Cohen; Leckie, Gross, Hartmann; Leczano
Leipzig: Gulacsi; Schmitz, Ilsanker, Orban, Halstenberg; Burke, Demme, Keita, Forsberg; Werner, Poulsen
Prediction: Ingolstadt 1-3 Leipzig
