Grunberg for Lasalle. The deployment

The Schwarzenberg’s Army of Bohemia is cautiously advancing towards the Allied rendez-vous in Leipzig and the Murray's division, forming the Allied advance-guard has taken the bridge over the Floha and has dispersed in the area, while waiting for the arrival of reinforcements of the Crenneville's and Hesse-Homburg's divisions.
The French, under the Maréchal Victor, are trying to delay the Allied advance and have planned a frontal attack against the isolated Austrian unit (left in the far bank of the stream) that will be carried out by the Vial's division and the 1st Light Cavalry Division, in combination with a flank attack with the Dufour's division and the Pajol's V Cavalry Corps.
