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.

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

Ex-Red Bulls Coach Gerhard Struber Shares Thoughts on MLS and Salzburg

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
