by: Adam Smith


Timo Werner is currently marveling in the Bundesliga with world-class performances. The tip from RB Leipzig even surpasses Robert Lewandowski of FC Bayern Munich with his values. On Tuesday night he wants to tie up BVB on his way to the first fall championship in club history and finally break his curse against the black and yellow team.

Also at Borussia Dortmund, the Red Bulls want to confirm their outstanding offensive rate of almost three goals per game. There are 42 goals after 15 games. RB in the upper house of football has never been in such a mood as under head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who inoculated his team with just the right mix of smart combination play, fast tempo transition football and offensive free spirit.

This is symbolized by Timo Werner, by far the most successful tip in the club's three and a half year history. So far, the German international is not just dominating as an icy hangout with a fabulous 16 goals in 15 season games. Werner acts in a team-friendly manner and sometimes selflessly. Along with his five goal preparations, the most valuable player in the Leipzig squad (estimated market value 65 to 70 million euros) scored 21 points.

Werner was directly involved in every other RB goal

Werner is therefore directly involved in every other Leipzig goal, which is a unique value at this level of the best offensive series in the Bundesliga.

The tip itself has acknowledged why it has worked so well under new coach Julian Nagelsmann: "I sometimes trade on the ten. It helps me a lot, I have a lot of freedom," he said before the recent gala performances against Hoffenheim and Dusseldorf.

Werner has become more relaxed. More relaxed in dealing with the enormous interest of his person and more relaxed in coping with the many press situations and responsibilities that weigh his center forward in the competing games in Leipzig: "I have developed there, do not worry too much if I want to score. I go into the field, knock everything out and hope that eventually it will be a hit on the account that ideally contributes to victory, "Werner said.

The last ten goals in six games – not even Lewandowski can do it

With this looseness and the basic confidence of the head coach, the native of Stuttgart has become the currently most powerful tip in the Bundesliga. Better than Dortmund attacking stars around Captain Marco Reus, Julian Brandt or Paco Alcácer, waiting for Leipzig's top pride this evening, and even better than Robert Lewandowski.

Bavaria's number 9 is currently traded as the best center in the world. Late in the fall and winter of 2019, however, Timo Werner no longer has to hide behind the FC Bayern superstar. Ten goals in the last six series matches, plus five assists: Goal scorer Werner has swallowed opponents almost single-handedly in recent weeks and has been squatting for BVB tonight.

The strength of the 203-time Bundesliga player – record! No player in Werner's age has made so many appearances – not only is it clear when looking at his goal rate.

Werner puts Lewandowski in the shade in almost all striking offensive stats: He has scored several goals in recent weeks, brings more passes to the man (75.2 percent to 71.5 percent), prepares more shots on goal by colleagues (25 to 12) and loses fewer balls than Pole (33 ball losses to 44).

Leipziger is more successful at dribbling (62.5 percent to 57.1 percent), has an average of more ball contacts per game (just under 44 to just under 39) and is, as usual, one of the fastest players with a top speed of 35 km / h throughout the Bundesliga.

All values ​​that prove the current strength of the RB asset and its importance to the Nagelsmann team.

Werner's disaster record against BVB: Nine matches – zero goals

"Werner always plays!" This creed has been valid for six years. Since then, the 1.80m man has stood on the lawn of the clubs VfB Stuttgart and RB Leipzig for at least 30 season matches.

Werner has also played nine times against the upcoming opponent Borussia Dortmund. Especially curious: BVB is the only club in the Bundesliga that the target monster Werner has not yet cracked. In the tenth attempt, it should finally work against Westphalia, which recently gained new confidence with very superior zero victories against Mainz and Düsseldorf, especially in the defensive line.

In "ZDF Sports Studio" Werner made it clear last Saturday that his long dry spell against the black and yellow would end Tuesday night.

At the same time he emphasized the importance of the penultimate round game: "It will be an exciting match. Not only for us as a team, but also for the spectators. There is a lot at stake. I think we will then set the course for the rest of the season. the so-called six-point game for us. "
