Will RB Leipzig remain on course for an historic season?

Last midweek, die Roten Bullen reached the UEFA Europa League semi-finals by beating Atalanta 2-0 in Bergamo.

Christopher Nkunku with a second leg brace as his side team advanced 3-1 on aggregate.

Leipzig will now face Scottish Champions Rangers, the first leg is at home in eight days time, looking to qualify for a first-ever European Final.

Here, the 2019 runners-up are also still on track to win some major silverware for the first time in their admittedly short history.

So far in the DFB-Pokal, Leipzig have seen off SV Sandhausen, Babelsberg, Hansa Rostock and Hannover, scoring 11 goals and conceding none.

Also, they’re now third up to in the Bundesliga with Dominik Szoboszlai getting the only goal to down Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

This means Domenico Tedesco’s side are unbeaten in 14 matches in all competitions, making them big favourites to win this tie.

But write off Union Berlin at your peril, because their fairytale rise could take them all the way to cup glory next month.

Die Eisernen only gained promotion to the Bundesliga for the very-first time in 2019, but finished seventh last season.

Earlier in this campaign, Union played in a major UEFA competition for the first time, bowing out in the Europa Conference League group phase.

Back at home, Urs Fischer’s men beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 on Sunday, with Taiwo Awoniyi and then Grischa Prömel the scorers.

This means they’ve now won three successive league games and are sixth, on course to qualify for Europe again.

In the Pokal, Union have overcome Türkgücü München, Waldhof Mannheim and St. Pauli, but it’s their round of 16 tie that lives long in the memory.

Back in January, they beat cross-city rivals Hertha BSC 3-2, so will be hoping to return to Olympiastadion next month for the final.

Who will win at Red Bull Arena, thereby setting up a date with Hamburger SV or Freiburg in the DFB-Pokal Final?

Domenico Tedesco’s team face a relentless schedule just now, so he’ll continue to rotate his XI.

Kevin Kampl and Konrad Laimer are the usual midfield duo, but U.S. international Tyler Adams could keep his place here after starting on Sunday.

Angeliño, Christopher Nkunku and Dani Olmo were also only left on the bench in Leverkusen, but could return for this tie.

Urs Fischer meanwhile put out his best team on Sunday so isn’t likely to change too much here.

Christopher Trimmel is one player who could return, displacing Julian Ryerson at right-wing-back.

Taiwo Awoniyi is their main goal threat, looking to add to his 18 goals this season.
