RB Leipzig’s Dan Olmo is well-aware of the challenge that his club is facing tomorrow against Bayern Munich. The attacking midfielder/winger, though, is not one to shy away from a challenge and is looking forward to helping his squad attack a chance to potentially sit atop the Bundesliga table.

“We know it will be a difficult game,” said Olmo in a media event organized by ‘Common Goal’ (as captured by Abendzeitung). “Bayern Munich are one of the best teams in the world, but we also know what we can do. If we win, we’ll move up to the top of the table. It’s going well for us right now, we don’t have to change anything. We are true to our game and our philosophy.”

It should be noted that Olmo’s affiliation with “Common Goal” means that he donates 1% of his yearly salary to the cause:

While team success is obviously driving Olmo’s desire to upend the Bavarians tomorrow, the 22-year-old Spaniard does have a little individual motivation as well. Olmo has never scored against Bayern Munich.

“That is one more motivation to score and get three points,” added Olmo.
