Once again, these two teams are failed in their bid to dethrone Bayern Munich from the Bundesliga’s zenith, where they have been ruling supreme for so many years now. They just haven’t been able to match the Bavarians’ strength, and were forced to relinquish the league title to Hansi-Flick’s men.
Also, they are out of contention in the Champions League, leaving the DFB-Pokal as their solitary hope of clinching silverware this term. With these two sides desperate for glory, expect gung-ho football in Berlin, as these juggernauts challenge for the league cup.
RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Team News
Leipzig’s league form has been nothing short of sensational, and they are good value for their current position, sitting just behind perennial champions Bayern Munich. Thanks to their strong start to the season, it appeared the Red Bulls were on hand to knock Bayern off their perch.
However, the newly-found club soon hit something of a rough patch, dropping vital points to allow the Bavarians leapfrog them on the standings. As if Bayern hadn’t already stolen enough from Leipzig in one season, they recently poached their young manager, Julian Nagelsmann.
With the German gaffer seeing out his last few weeks at the club, it would be amazing to cap his time at Saxony with a silverware in the cabinet. And what better way to achieve this than to safely see off Borussia Dortmund in this crunch DFB-Pokal final.
Die Roten Bullen were made to wriggle their way through to the last-two, digging really deep to defeat Werder Bremen in the competition’s previous round. A game that stretched into extra-time, a last-gasp Forsberg effort was enough to send Leipzig through to the final.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund were handed a rather straightforward semifinal clash, with lowly Holstein paired with them. As expected, Der BVB blew their opposition out of the water, posting a magnificent 5-0 win on the board.
Now, they have booked a place in Berlin, and only one step away from laying their hands on the DFB-Pokal trophy, one that have eluded them for the past three years. Dortmund’s league form is nothing to write home about.
They had been beneath the top-four zone for a long while, before recently striking a purple patch to climb up the standings. Desperate for their first taste of silverware under Edin Terzim, you can expect a five-star performance from Die Borussen come kickoff.
Injured or Suspended Players
RB Leipzig: Lazar Samardzic, Christopher Nkunku, Tyler Adams and Dominik Szoboszlai.
Borussia Dortmund: Marcel Schmelzer, Axel Witsel, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Youssoufa Moukoko, Marwin Hitz and Mateu Morey Bauza.

RB Leipzig vs Dortmund Predictions
Finals are very difficult to predict, as we often do not know what to expect. They are games that can go either way, irrespective of the strength of the participating sides. Having faced off few days ago, Dortmund came out on top via a 3-2 win.
That victory ensured that Der BVB completed the double over Leipzig. But this is a cup game, and Nagelsmann’s charges will be putting in more effort to end their poor run of form against Dortmund. Contrary to popular opinion, our wager is on Leipzig to carry the day.
