Julian Nagelsmann says RB Leipzig are out to prove they can win without Timo Werner.
The German striker opted to leave Leipzig for Chelsea before the Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid, which will be played in Portugal on Thursday.
“We don’t have to play outnumbered, we will replace [Werner] with a capable player,” Nagelsmann told a pre-match news conference.
“I can reveal that 11 will start the game, but I will not reveal who will play instead of him. We have quality.
“Timo would have started tomorrow, but we can replace him and we have the ability to get in front of their goal.
“We have players who didn’t play when Werner was here and will now get their chance to show what they can do and score plenty.”
