Rose: Nkunku ready for Real

RB Leipzig coach Marco Rose says Christopher Nkunku is ready for Tuesday's Champions League game against Real Madrid.
After missing out on RB Leipzig's mid-week DFB-Pokal win over Hamburger SV due to wrist surgery, Christopher Nkunku started on the bench for yesterday's 3-3 draw against Augsburg.

The Frenchman came on just shy of the hour mark and helped Leipzig pull off a remarkable comeback with a stunning free kick goal.

Providing an update on Nkunku's injury after the game, Leipzig coach Marco Rose said that "everything is good" with the Frenchman and that he's "ready" for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Therefore, Nkunku should be back in the line-up on Tuesday as Leipzig aim for important points in the Champions League.
