RB Leipzig Preview – Can Leipzig claim the silverware?

We are down to the final two in the DFB Pokal, which takes place in Berlin on Thursday evening.

Leipzig are a quote of 13/8 to pick up the match victory* (odds recorded 22:48 GMT 10th May).

It was a 3-2 loss that they suffered at Dortmund on the weekend in the Bundesliga.

That has left them in some patchy form actually.

After such a strong season from Leipzig, they are now W2 D2 L2 in their last six fixtures (90 minutes).

In the semi-finals of the German Cup, they made the trip to Werder Bremen.

Leipzig got through courtesy of extra time, Emil Forsberg scoring the winner in extra time stoppage time in a dramatic finish.

If you look back at their longer form, RB Leipzig have won only three of their last ten fixtures (D3 L4).

RB Leipzig are winless in their last seven fixtures against Dortmund.

So that’s a big head to head negative that they have to try and shake off.

They have lost three in a row against BVB now.

There has been a trend of high-scoring fixtures between Leipzig and Dortmund.

Four of the last six have ended over 3.5 goals.

Over 3.5 goals for Thursday’s German Cup Final is at a quote of 13/8* (odds recorded 22:48 GMT 10th May).

So far in this season’s competition, Borussia Dortmund have tallied up 19 goals and have conceded 2 in their five matches.
