Last week RB Leipzig played out a goalless draw with Schalke meaning they have now recorded two back to back goalless draws, a first in their entire Bundesliga history

RB Leipzig goalkeeper, Peter Gulácsi when interviewed by omasports, right after his team’s goalless draw against Schalke 04, discussed his team’s shortcomings and areas he thought the team could improve upon before facing Hertha Berlin this weekend.

“We had a lot of missed and inaccurate passes, and it was our major problem going forward, and it cost us in the final third cause we had good situations to score goals.”

On the chances of making it to the UEFA Champions League for next season after missing out this season, the goalkeeper responded

“It’s a long season, with a very tight run up and we just have to focus on our self and pick up as many points as possible, it’s a tough league this season again so more than ever it’s important we focus on ourselves and get as many points as possible.”
