Kluivert makes first start for Leipzig


Justin Kluivert is set to make his first start for RB Leipzig since making his loan move to the German club earlier this month.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side, who currently sit atop the Bundesliga table, are hosting 15th-placed Hertha Berlin this afternoon after having defeated İstanbul Başakşehir midweek in the Champions League.

Kluivert joined Leipzig on a straight loan deal on the final day of the transfer window after having fallen down in the pecking owner of Roma boss Paulo Fonseca.

To date, the Dutch winger has made two appearances from the bench — but today will be the first time he features from the first minute.
