  • The sides met for the first time competitively in the reverse fixture (3-0 to Leipzig).
  • Only Bayern allowed their opponents less goal attempts than Leipzig (324) and Eintracht (338).
  • RBL have 66 points currently and a win would see them record the best-ever tally from a promoted side (previously 68 by Kaiserslautern in 1997/98).
