STREAM HERE >>> Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig free stream online DFB Cup Final Full HD
Nagelsmann will leave Leipzig for newly crowned Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at the end of this season, but he could depart the Red Bull Arena having guided Die Roten Bullen to their first major trophy, five days before their 12th anniversary. RB’s league title aspirations were finally ended on Saturday when these sides met in the Bundesliga in Dortmund, slipping to a 3-2 defeat despite fighting back from 2-0 down. Nagelsmann had said beforehand that he would look to try some things out ahead of the final, but it’s expected that the core of the team will remain the same for the trip to Berlin.
Hee-chan Hwang could give way to Alexander Sörloth up top, although competition top scorer Yussuf Poulsen may fancy his chances of a recall.
Playmaker Christopher Nkunku missed the league meeting with a back problem, but does travel – unlike Angelino and Tyler Adams. Leipzig have conceded only once on the way to the final – only facing opponents from the top two divisions – beating Nuremberg (3-0), Augsburg (3-0), Bochum (4-0), Wolfsburg (2-0) and Werder Bremen (2-1 a.e.t.).
Dortmund are seeking to lift the DFB Cup for a fifth time, with Haaland hoping to be the man to fire them to glory if fit.
The Norwegian watched (and cheered) from the stands on Saturday after a knock ruled him out of action. He has five days to prove his fitness after two weeks without training if he’s to try and win a first trophy in Germany.
One player who has returned from injury in top form is Jadon Sancho, whose brace at the weekend ensured the win in the final dress rehearsal, keeping BVB’s UEFA Champions League qualification hopes very much alive. Marwin Hitz has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury sustained on Sunday. Former first-choice Roman Bürki came on and will deputise in his third German cup final.
Dortmund have reached Berlin for the sixth time in the last 10 years by beating Duisburg (5-0), Eintracht Braunschweig (2-0), Paderborn (3-2 a.e.t.), Borussia Mönchengladbach (1-0) and Holstein Kiel (5-0), with Sancho scoring and/or assisting in every game.
