RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann is planning to make a few changes for Saturday's Bundesliga game against Werder Bremen, but says he doesn't want to rotate too much after the 2-1 win over Benfica in Portugal earlier this week.

"We want to rotate a bit, but not much. I'm not a fan of making six or seven changes," Nagelsmann told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

'Die Roten Bullen' sit top of the Bundesliga after winning three out of their four league games so far, and Nagelsmann sets sights on another win this Saturday.

"We haven't won in Bremen before, but we want to change that. My gut feeling is that we'll get that victory tomorrow," he said, as quoted by the club.

RB Leipzig have announced that Patrick Schick, Kevin Kampl, Hannes Wolf and Tyler Adams will all miss the game due to injuries while Yussuf Poulsen will not be facing Werder either as his partner is due to give birth.

Meanwhile, Marcel Halstenberg, Konrad Laimer and Ibrahima Konaté are all doubts for Saturday's game.
