Defender Willi Orban should also ensure a clean sheet at FC Augsburg. Following his comeback against Union Berlin (2-0), the captain will also be in RB Leipzig's starting eleven this Saturday (3.30pm/Sky) in the Bundesliga. "Knowing that we have a lot of games coming up, it was important to us that we didn't prioritize them. That means that a Champions League game is not more important than a Bundesliga game. Willi will of course start in Augsburg," said coach Marco Rose with a view to the first leg of the round of 16 against Real Madrid next Tuesday. However, Amadou Haidara, who completed the squad for the first time after returning from the Africa Cup, will be missing against the Swabians. "He has a bit of swelling in his knee, we're treating that now," said Rose, who is expecting "an unpleasant task" in Augsburg.
