Christopher Nkunku will miss RB Leipzig in the cup game against Hamburger SV. The Frenchman underwent minor wrist surgery on Sunday. Emil Forsberg is also questionable.
The French goalgetter is definitely out against HSV. But Nkunku's downtime isn't all that long; the attacker could be back on the ball as early as next weekend (Bundesliga vs. FC Augsburg). It is unclear who will pull the strings for RB Leipzig against HSV in the last third. In addition to Nkunku, Dani Olmo is also sure to be out. Emil Forsberg, who is in good form and suffering from problems with his adductors, is at least questionable. He had to be replaced on Saturday evening against Hertha BSC.
