Over 2.5 Goals
With seven players out because of the World Cup, and plenty with some fatigue issues, it will be interesting to see what kind of team will coach Marco Rose present against Radomiak. Leipzig is a team that has a high amount of big-scoring games, and with friendlies, it's usually about playing to find out who can you count on when the season restarts. The Polish team will look to try and test themselves against one of the best Bundesliga sides.
It's not always about winning, at least not when teams play friendly matches. In those kinds of games, most often it's about maintaining your form, trying to get out of your comfort zone, building some new momentum, or keeping working on things that weren't there in the past. Radomiak will try at least not to lose, and with all the availability issues with Leipzig, they might do just that.

Who will get out of their comfort zone?
Leipzig is certainly one of the teams that didn't want the season to stop for the World Cup. They had four wins in a row before the break, and are holding on to the third spot in the Bundesliga behind Bayern and the surprising team of the season, Freiburg. However, just before the World Cup break, they lost Christopher Nkunku, their most important player, last year's Bundesliga player of the year. They are hoping that he will be ready for the final part of the season. Good thing is that Bundesliga has the longest break after the Qatar tournament out of all the top leagues in Europe, they will restart their season in the latter part of January.
Leipzig's likely starting 11: Nickisch, Simaken, Diallo, Halstenberg, Ba, Henrichs, Haidara, Kampl, Weber, Zajkowski, Kohl.
Radomiak is a Polish top-division team that currently lies in the tenth spot in their domestic championships. Poland is also participating in the World Cup, but no player was invited from their roster to represent the home country. They are a stable club with a middle-table ambition as rankings go, but are hard to play against with their tough back line. They haven't been performing to their best capabilities this season and will use this World Cup break to build some momentum before the season gets back on track.
Radomiak's likely starting 11: Kobylak, Rossi, Justiniano, Gajgier, Grzybek, Zurawski, Kolasa, Nowakowski, Pawlowski, Maurides, Sokol.
RB Leipzig: Abdou Diallo, Josip Gvardiol, Lukas Klostermann, Dani Olmo, Yussuf Poulsen, David Raum, and Andre Silva are at the World Cup. Peter Gualcsi, Konrad Laimer, Christopher Nkunku, and Timo Werner are injured.
Radomiak: Thabo Cele is injured.
