RB Leipzig defeated Hertha Berlin 2-1 at home. After being injured, captain Sabitzer came off the bench in this league and scored a penalty to help the team win. Coach Nagelsman said that he wants Sabitzer to start in the Champions League against Manchester United, but his physical condition does not allow him.
After coming back from a torn muscle injury, Sabice came off the bench in the 69th minute and soon passed the penalty kick to overtake the score.
Nagelsman said: "He made us more organized in the 6th position. Sabitzer created a threat and had a good understanding of the game."
However, the Austrian international will appear on the bench against Manchester United because his physical condition has not yet recovered 100%. Then Nashuai said: "I want Sabitzer to start the game against Manchester United on Wednesday. But this is not feasible from a medical point of view."
In the early hours of next Thursday morning Beijing time, RB Leipzig will challenge Manchester United away. Both sides won the first round of the group stage.
