Marcel Sabitzer is fit and available for RB Leipzig's Friday night clash with VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.


Speaking at the pre-match press conference, RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch said that the Austrian international is ready to play despite the uncertainty surrounding his future at the club and his recent injury struggles.

"'Sabi' will be ready," underlined Marsch when asked about Sabitzer's availability.

"I've had many positive conversations with him, and he's an important player here."

Sabitzer came on during the second half as Leipzig feel to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Mainz in their Bundesliga opener last Friday.

In addition, Marsch will be able to count of the services of Yussuf Poulsen for the first time this season while Alexander Sørloth, Benjamn Henrichs and Marcel Halstenberg are out.
