Emil Forsberg definitely has something to celebrate on Saturday, because the man from Leipzig will be 30 years old. A successful game against Greuther Furth (Saturday, 3:30 p.m.) is certainly part of a happy birthday - and for him personally a lot of playing time. Accordingly, the question arose on Friday whether the Swede would get this after he was only on the bench against Paris (2: 3).

“Emil is a great player. It's sure to be fresh and ready for tomorrow. There is a big possibility that he will be in the line-up, ”said coach Jesse Marsch at the matchday press conference before the match. According to the coach, it would also be a good present for Forsberg and also for Leipzig if he scored in the game.

After the 29-year-old scored his 50th goal against Freiburg (1: 1) on the last day of the game in Saxony's dress, Marsch added with a wink that RB could now use 50 more goals from Forsberg. The Swede may be able to lay the foundation for this on Saturday.
