During pre-season, new RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann has been testing out a 3-5-2 system that looks quite similar to his preferred formation at Hoffenheim last season, but there is a chance he will go with a formation with four at the back.
It's unclear if Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Halstenberg will be fit enough to start against Union Berlin on Sunday.
The midfield is also hard to predict as Kevin Kampl is doubtful while the likes of Amadou Haidara and Emil Forsberg are options for the starting eleven as well.
