Marco Rose expects a reaction from record champions FC Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title fight. "If Bayern are shot a bit, then they always find themselves in the right place. I also believe that Bayern know what they have to do," said the RB Leipzig head coach.
At the same time he was happy about the exciting title fight. "That's something that has been missing in Germany for a long time, that such a tight championship sometimes goes into the last third of the season. I hope it stays that way."
After the defeat at Borussia Mönchengladbach, FC Bayern is going into the 22nd matchday as the leader, level on points with pursuers Borussia Dortmund and 1. FC Union Berlin. Fifth in the table, Leipzig is four points behind the trio.
Rose: "Will need staying power"
He sees many teams like Union, Dortmund and Freiburg "very stable", stressed Rose. He demands consistency from his team: "We'll need staying power this season, as well as a lot of healthy players, good form and a good atmosphere."
Therefore, a victory in the chasing duel this Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky) against Eintracht Frankfurt would also be valuable in the fight for the premier class. "We're trying to keep up. At the end of the day, we'd do well to look at ourselves and stay with us. Tomorrow, Eintracht Frankfurt, I think it's important. We take every task as it comes and want to get over it identify performance," said Rose.
