RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund meet again on Thursday evening. The DFB Cup final is on the agenda.
Leipzig – After the game is before the game! After this RB Leipzig one on Saturday afternoon bitter 2: 3 defeat at Borussia Dortmund had to accept, the black and yellow are on Thursday evening (8.45 p.m. Sky / ARD) in the cup final again the opponents of the Saxons. If it is up to RB coach Julian Nagelsmann (33), the result should be different this time.
“It’s time we won a game. We have the next chance on Thursday. We have to get it done,” said Nagelsmann after the defeat on Saturday. The record against Borussia is actually terrifying: It was the seventh game of the Saxons in a row without a win against the Revierclub.
The last success of the Leipzig against Dortmund was in October 2017, then a 3-2 away win. “The record is not outstanding”, Nagelsmann puts it into perspective.
That should change on Thursday. First and foremost, it definitely needs a better first half. Because in the second half you saw that you can pose serious problems for Dortmund if the move to the goal is right and you are consistently close in the back row. “We didn’t defend as we imagined,” said RB keeper Péter Gulácsi (31).
Transfer hammer! RB Leipzig probably agreed with Frankfurt’s Silva
There are still a few days left until the first possible title.
Saying goodbye to Leipzig with the Cup is also Nagelsmann’s big goal: “We have enough time before the cup game to analyze our mistakes,” announced the RB head coach.
The fact that they conceded three goals in Dortmund on Saturday, although goalgetter Erling Haaland (20) had to pass due to injury, is particularly annoying for Leipzig. At least it seems so far as if the Norwegian will continue to be questionable on Thursday.
“Erling is very, very hot about this game and this title,” said BVB licensed player boss Sebastian Kehl (41) on Sunday in an interview with “Sport 1.” But he is still not in team training. So we will be for the next few days Have to wait and try everything to the end. We will not give up our faith. “
So it remains to be seen whether RB can draw the right conclusions from the Bundesliga duel. Because with or without Haaland: Borussia Dortmund will do everything in their power to be able to take the cup from Berlin into the pot.
