After they were humbled by the O-Fives at the Opel Arena, the 20-year-old is backing the Red Bulls to return to winning ways against Wolfsburg

Ademola Lookman is confident that RB Leipzig will bounce back from their 3-0 loss to Mainz 05 in Sunday’s German Bundesliga outing.

Pablo De Blasis, Alexandru Maxim and Bote Baku efforts handed Sandro Schwarz’s men a comprehensive victory in the encounter.

And the loss could affect their aim for a Champions League spot after the defeat saw them drop to the sixth spot, five points adrift of fourth-placed Hoffenheim, and with two games left before the end of the season.

However, the Everton loanee is backing Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side to return to winning ways when they meet with Wolfsburg in their next league tie.

“You know, it's difficult to lose 3-0. We're all down. All I can say is that we're going to bounce back from this,” Lookman told Bundesliga website.

“It makes qualifying for the Champions League even more difficult. But you know, anything can happen in football. We just keep going."

Lookman has scored two goals in nine league appearances since he joined the Red Bull Arena outfit in January.
