Speaking to German public broadcaster ARD following his first competitive match in nearly a year, RB Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi deferred on the question as to whether he expected to receive his starting spot back.

"It was an important first step," Gulacsi said of his start, "I wish to take further steps and get more playing time. [But] I don't see it as a case of being #1 or #2. I see it as a process of improving step-by-step. I've experienced it myself how quickly football can change from one moment to the next."
Having secured advancement in Germany's domestic cup, Leipzig now face two daunting challenges in the days ahead. League-leaders FC Bayern München await in Saturday evening's "Top-Spiel" in the Bundesliga this weekend. After that, the German Red Bulls must face Manchester City in the Champions' League. Gulacsi noted that he would be prepared to potentially start again.
"When we play every three days, it can happen," Gulacsi told his interviewer.
