RB Leipzig: A team to hate or to love

Leipzig's fourth season in the Bundesliga seems to be their best so far. They are performing the most modern and durable football in the first half of the season, they stay at the top of the standings, but they are the most hated team in Germany.

From the first moment, German football has treated with suspicion and empathy the policy that characterizes Red Bull. An imported franchise from a globalized trading force could never be beloved by the culture of German clubs.

The thought that a ten-year-old club, under the business venture of Red Bull, causes many reactions. Recently the fans of Union Berlin travelled there to protest against Leipzig, characterizing them as the death of German football.

And they are not the only movement that has expressed its opposition to the politics of Leipzig. The vast majority of fans do not attend the away games against Leipzig.

However, Leipzig stands on their own feet with excess balance. They qualified in the round of 16 of the Champions League and they still are to the top of the Bundesliga table.

Meanwhile, after Salzburg, Leipzig, New York and Bragantino, Red Bull wants to make a new investment in the football world by buying out Danish club Brøndby IF. Something that already brought a lot of discussions.

Is RB Leipzig trying a different approach or this is a wrong direction for worldwide football? Have your say.

    If Leipzig is the most hated team Won’t that affect their chances of winning the title?

    @Kavuma, there’s no way Leipzig will keep this up, imho Munich will be champs again. but finally this is a fun and competitive year in Bundes with 4-5 teams all still in race for 1st, a much welcomed change. actually it puts premiership to shame in 2019/2020 in terms of excitment. so much for so called farmer’s league as the brits used to say :P
