Jesse Marsch has not had positive start with RB Leipzig and that struggle continued after a 3-2 loss to Paris St. Germain midweek in the Champions League. Despite longer periods of decent play, Leipzig are unable to close out game and see themselves going out of the Champions League and looking up from eighth place in the Bundesliga.
"Football sometimes isn't fair," said midfielder Konrad Laimer. "To have no points after three games makes it difficult in the group, but we've shown that we can hold our own against against Europe's best."
Showing you can hold your own isn't the same as getting points. At the moment Leipzig will have a mighty mountain to claim to just qualify for the Europa League round of 32. While you can point to the team having moments where they control games against strong opposition, it is the result that ultimately matters and that has eluded Marsch and Leipzig thus far.
The East German club will get a chance to regain confidence this weekend against Furth, a newly promoted club. Expectations are that they will dominate in front of their home fans but there is still a worry that the club has a major lack of confidence.
"We've got our backs against the wall," said manager Marsch. "We need to make fewer mistakes in upcoming games."
