RB Leipzig Faces Hostility in Germany: A Club Apart

Still seeking recognition in Germany, RB Leipzig is often presented as a club apart, given its recent history. Considered the most hated club across the Rhine, it was targeted again this weekend during the match against Heidenheim. Despite their team’s victory (1-2), the 1,500 Leipzig supporters had a bad afternoon on Saturday. In fact, Heidenheim fans had placed butyric acid in the visitor’s park the day before. Although not harmful to health, this acid causes a strong, foul odor.

Many Leipzig fans complained of a vomit smell. FC Heidenheim apologized to their opponent for the inconvenience caused. It should be noted that RB Leipzig had already been targeted by this club in 2015 during their last clash at the Voith Arena. At that time, hundreds of dollar bills emblazoned with the face of Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull (who died in October 2022), were thrown at the Leipzig team bus at the entrance to the stadium.
