RB Leipzig vs Hamburg betting tips: DFB-Pokal Second Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Will RB Leipzig remain on course to retain the DFB-Pokal?

In the first round, die Roten Bullen demolished Teutonia Ottensen 8-0; Timo Werner bagging a 24 minute hat-trick.

Back in May, Leipzig beat Freiburg in the Pokal final at Olympiastadion, thereby winning major silverware for the first time ever.

Now led by Marco Rose, they are down in ninth in the Bundesliga, despite Saturday’s entertaining 3-2 victory over Hertha BSC.

Will RB Leipzig cruise into round three?

Hamburger SV meantime have won six Bundesliga titles, this trophy three times and the European Cup in 1983.

However, die Rothosen are currently enduring a fifth successive season in the second-tier, heartbreakingly beaten in the play-offs by Hertha five months ago.

Tim Walter’s ousted SpVgg Bayreuth in round one of this tournament, needing extra time to do it, but this’ll obviously be a far tougher test.

Will RB Leipzig be too strong at Red Bull Arena?
