As Leipzig battles for a Champions League spot, coach Marco Rose expresses confidence in Benjamin Šeško's form despite his recent goal drought.

RB Leipzig is set to play a crucial match tomorrow, as will all their matches until the end of the season, as Benjamin Šeško's club pursues a Champions League berth for the next season. They trail Borussia Dortmund by three points, making any slip-ups unaffordable, especially against the upcoming opponent, Freiburg.

Leipzig's coach, Marco Rose, believes his team still holds their Champions League qualification fate in their hands:

"If we don't secure three points in matches like the one against Mainz, we shouldn't bother looking at others. Tomorrow, we have a chance to claim another victory."

"We need to provoke fortune but also be decisive in scoring opportunities. Many take it for granted that we'll qualify for the Champions League, but it's something special. There are only four spots, and every season there's a surprise team. This year, for example, Stuttgart is doing great, as is Bayer. Last year, we were in a similar situation and succeeded."

It's still uncertain whom Rose will choose for the attack. Benjamin Šeško, who scored his last goal against Bayern at the end of February, is a strong contender to start the game.

"Decisions are always close. Baumgartner is in excellent form, as is Benjamin Šeško, and Eljif Elmas is also pushing. These are the options we need. We'll see who plays," says Rose.

Šeško has scored seven goals in this Bundesliga season.
