RB Leipzig have confirmed that Jean-Kevin Augustin, Dayot Upamecano, Ibrahima Konate and Diego Demme could be available for Saturday's trip to Bayer Leverkusen.

The quartet were involved in training on Tuesday with Augustin overcoming a hamstring injury, Upamecano recovering from a knee problem, while Konate and Demme were also given the all-clear. 

Commenting on Augustin, Bulls head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl told Kicker: "With JK is nice that he can train again. He has not yet gone through everything, but have tried to integrate him and it was possible without any problems."

Meanwhile, Hasenhuttl rested star forward Emil Forsberg for Tuesday's training session after his heroics in helping Sweden qualify for the 2018 World Cup following something of a shock victory over Italy in the play-offs.

"I left him at home today, he should have a good night's sleep," the 50-year-old added. "For Emil, of course, it's a huge story - we all shivered in front of the TV."
