RB Leipzig - Dortmund
Both young coaches are savoring their final few games in charge. 33-year-old Julian Nagelsmann departs with not such a heavy heart for his favourite club Bayern Munich, while 38-year-old caretaker Edin Terzic will assume another role with BVB, unless he is poached in the summer by another club. This would be the first trophy ever for RB Leipzig and for Nagelsmann professional football, while Dortmund seek their fifth DFB-Pokal success after 1965, 1989, 2012 and 2017. Leipzig will likely finish second to Bayern in the Bundesliga, a position Borussia Dortmund have grown more than accustomed to over the past nine seasons. RB Leipzig have kept a clean sheet in their last 5 matches. Borussia Dortmund have won 5 of their last 6 matches against RBL in all competitions. RB Leipzig are undefeated in their last 5 matches. Captain Marcel Sabitzer should be available along with striker Yussuf Poulsen.
Hwang Hee-Chan is over an ankle injury as is Justin Kluivert. Christopher Nkunku and Tyler Adams should return, but Lazar Samardzic has a knee injury. Dominik Szoboszlai has adductor problems and has still not played his first game for the club. Konrad Laimer is also on the verge of a return from a knee injury. Jadon Sancho has finally recovered from a muscle injury in a major boost for Borussia Dortmund s chances of silverware. Erling Haaland should be fit after missing the weekend dress rehearsal, while Roman Bürki will play in goal after Marwin Hitz s knee injury. Manuel Akanji und Giovanni Reyna will be assessed nearer the game.
