Ademola Lookman - RB Leipzig 2019-20

The Anglo-Nigerian has not recovered from a back injury and will continue on the sidelines when his team faces ‎Sandro Schwarz’s men

Ademola Lookman will not play a part when RB Leipzig host Mainz 05 at Red Bull Arena in Saturday’s German Bundesliga game.

The 22-year-old forward missed his side’s 6-1 thumping of Wolfsburg in a Cup tie on Wednesday due to a pelvis injury.

Lookman is yet to recover from the back problem and will be missing in action when the Red Bulls take on Sandro Schwarz’s men, according to a statement on the club website.

The Anglo-Nigerian secured a permanent move to the Red Bull Arena from Everton in the summer after previously impressing on loan with the club.

Lookman has played four times this season for Julian Nagelsmann’s side, including a debut appearance in the Champions League against Zenit St. Petersburg.

Leipzig are seventh in the league after gathering 15 points from nine games and will hope to claim maximum points against Mainz.
