Match preview

The tie of the round in the DFB-Pokal has been saved for last, so will the holders or the five-times winners march on into the semi-finals?

Back in May, RB Leipzig won the very first major trophy of their admittedly short history, beating Freiburg on penalties in the DFB-Pokal Final.

As they seek to retain the trophy, die Roten Bullen have so far swatted aside Teutonia Ottensen, Hamburg and Hoffenheim, scoring 15 goals in these matches.

However, in the Bundesliga, Marco Rose’s side are in terrible form, losing three of their last four, so have sank down to fifth place.

With just eight games to go, Leipzig face a real battle to get back into the Champions League spots.

Borussia Dortmund meanwhile slipped down to second on Saturday, smashed by Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker.

Before this, Edin Terzić’s team were unbeaten in ten Bundesliga games, winning nine of them, so are still very much in the title conversation.

Meanwhile, in the Pokal, Dortmund have so far won away to 1860 Munich, Hannover and Bochum, as they chase an 11th final appearance.

This tie certainly isn’t one to be missed, so who will win an intriguing match-up at Red Bull Arena?
