Marcel Sabitzer questioned RB Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick's team selection following Saturday's 0-0 draw with Augsburg.

"We have a lot of creative players, but others must explain why they don't play," Sabitzer said, according to RBLive.

"We're short of creative moments and ideas offensively. We're dangerous at set-pieces at the moment, but we're lacking creativity," the midfielder added.

When faced with Sabitzer's criticism, Rangnick underlined he actually put more offensive firepower on the pitch by subbing in Emil Forsberg, Bruma and Jean-Kevin Augustin during the second half.

"Please take a look at who came on in the 60., 70. and 80. minute and who was sitting on the bench," Rangnick said.

Speaking at the press conference after the game, the RB Leipzig boss said he felt his team lacked a bit of luck.

"It was a tough game, as expected. We played too diagonally in the first half, but were more determined after the break, and had 3 or 4 really good chances. We just lacked a slice of luck and the necessary force to break Augsburg down," Rangnick said.
