Bayern Munich? Or rather Werder Bremen? No matter! RB Leipzig have only one goal after their first appearance in the final of the DFB Cup: the title. “Now everything is in it. No matter who comes, we want to win, “said offensive player Emil Forsberg after the 3: 1 (1: 1) success in the semifinals at Hamburger SV. And Yussuf Poulsen said briskly: “We are exaggerated to be in the final. At the moment no one can beat us by feeling. “
Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick was after his deserved victory in a gripping semi-final duel against a fierce second division proud of his team. “If you have the chance in the third Bundesliga year to actually win the title, it says all about the development that we have taken,” said the coach: “Because you can only pull the hat.”
Last opponent for the Bundesliga third on the way to the first Cup win is on 25 May in Berlin Olympic Stadium, the winner of the second semi-final between Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich, this Wednesday evening (20.45 / FAZ live ticker for the DFB Cup, ARD and Sky). “We can lay down on the couch and enjoy ourselves,” said Forsberg, who had made the decision in the Hamburg Volkspark with his dry right-footer to the 3: 1 (72).
Poulsen had provided on Tuesday night for a corner by a head for the early Leipzig lead (12). But Bakery Jatta brought the HSV back into the game with a worthwhile trick (24), before the Hamburg Vasilije Janjicic promoted the class favorites with an own goal on the winning ways (53.). And so Leipzig may dream three years after the rise of the Bundesliga and in the tenth year of its existence, the first major title win in the club's history.
