Established in 1963, the Bundesliga league is the top-flight soccer tournament which takes place in Germany. The founding members of this were Werder Bremen, Schalke 04, FC Koln, Hertha BSC, Hamburger SV, Eintracht Frankfurt and VfB Stuttgart. Also, they have most recently welcomed RB Leipzig back in 2016.

There's certainly no shortage of talent in RB Leipzig's ranks.
Wherever you look in the squad, whether it's the Liverpool bound Naby Keita, Diego Demme and the creative Emil Forsberg driving the side forward from midfield, Willi Orban, Dayot Upamecano, Ibrahima Konate and Marcel Halstenberg keeping things sure at the back, or Timo Werner and Yussuf Poulsen leading the attacking line.
While that's just naming a few of their stars, their dynamic attacker, Marcel Sabitzer, is definitely another one to add to the list.

There's no doubting what an overwhelmingly positive debut season in the Bundesliga RB Leipzig's immensely talented defender, Bernardo, has enjoyed.
The Brazilian, who came through the Red Bull pathway, firstly with Red Bull Brasil and then Red Bull Salzburg, has adapted admirably to the rigours of the Bundesliga, as he's been an integral member of Ralph HasenhÃ¼ttl's side's remarkable campaign.
Now, currently sitting second in the league and guaranteed a spot in the Champions League next term, Bernardo puts their tremendous success down to their committed approach and steadfast mindset.

After a flying start to their first ever top-flight campaign, the last game before the winter break presented the biggest test in the short history of RB Leipzig.
The Red Bull-owned team travelled to the Allianz Arena to take on Bayern Munich, a win, or even a draw, would have left their fans, and the neutrals swept up in their rise to become apparent Bundesliga contenders, absolutely ecstatic.
But they lost 3-0 in a thoroughly one-sided affair. The Bavarian's exuded an air of superiority throughout, almost swatting away the plucky upstarts with disdain -- how dare they come to our patch and think they can tussle with the big boys.

RB Leipzig's ascension to the top of the Bundesliga has been nothing short of remarkable. Although they've unquestionably constructed an impressive young squad that's bursting with talent, even they wouldn't have dreamt that they'd reach the summit of the league just 11 matches in.
With Bayern Munich losing to Borussia Dortmund on the weekend, Leipzig's scintillating 3-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen was enough to propel them to outright leaders and three points clear of Bayern. Indeed, quite the stuff of dreams by the Red Bull backed newcomers.
Their success has certainly been no fluke, however, for their superbly well coached and drilled by their fantastic manager, Ralf HasenhÃ¼ttl, w
