Emil Forsberg has been ruled out of RB Leipzig's Bundesliga clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.


"Emil injured his knee yesterday," revealed RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann at the pre-match press confernece.

"A scan showed that it's not a serious injury. It's a minor thing and nothing dramatic," he added.

Dominik Szboboszlai, Konrad Laimer and Benjamin Henrichs remain sidelined as well. Yussuf Poulsen, on the other hand, should come back into the squad after recovering from an injury.
