Leipzig 2021-22 Schedule Released: Bayern in Week 4

RB Leipzig's 2021-22 Bundesliga calendar has been released, with the club starting play in Germany's first division on August 14th or 15th against 1. FSV Mainz at the Opel Arena. Mainz ended last season on a high note, finishing in 15th place. At one point it appeared as if they would be a relegation candidate.

The schedule only gets more treacherous from there as Leipzig will play Bayern Munich at Red Bull Arena in Week 4. To this point Leipzig have been unable to top the German giants but new manager Jesse Marsch is confident in his team's ability heading into the new campaign.

"Mainz and Stuttgart are exciting opponents, followed by big games against Wolfsburg and FC Bayern," said manager Jesse Marsch. "Oour first game in the new-look Red Bull Arena will be something special and hopefully we'll have fans back for that. We're raring to go and can't wait to start training in two weeks."

Leipzig are in a state of transition at the moment, following the departure of Julian Nagelsmann for Bayern Munich after two seasons at the helm in East Germany. The team did make the DFB Pokal final but fell short of their goal, losing to Borussia Dortmund by a wide margin. The team now hopes that Marsch can take them over the top to bring home the team's first trophy.

In their chase for silverware, Leipzig will play in the Pokal a week before the start of the Bundesliga season on August 6th. Their opponent will be determined in a drawing this Sunday.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
