RB Leipzig’s run of success under coach Marco Rose is logical for Union Berlin’s managing director Oliver Ruhnert.

“To be honest, the development is not that surprising for me. There are quite a few who say that RB Leipzig has the best squad in the Bundesliga alongside Bayern,” said the 51-year-old before the game in Leipzig on Saturday (6:30 p.m.). Ruhnert also named Borussia Dortmund as another team with a strong squad.

rose followed Domenico Tedesco in Leipzig in September after an unsuccessful first week of the season. “Marco Rose simply managed to form the whole thing in such a way that it looks very, very stable,” said Ruhnert. The Saxons haven’t lost in 18 games. “That says it all in the end.”

“Actually, it shouldn’t be given enough credit to our coach and our team when you say against a team like this: They have to beat you on Saturday to be able to overtake you,” said Ruhnert.

It was surreal that Union traveled to the trade fair city as second in the table on matchday 20. Leipzig is three points behind Union in fourth place.
