Borussia Dortmund to Win
Despite their topsy turvy performances this season, Der BVB have remained staunch in their opposition to RB Leipzig. After their win on Sunday night, they are now on a five-match winning run while Leipzig have suffered two defeats and two draws in the same period. The odds are in their favour as they are unbeaten against their DFB Pokal rivals in seven meetings and will be looking to stretch that record to eight at the Olympiastadion.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Dortmund jolted Die Roten Bullen's title challenge with a 1-3 victory at the Red Bull Arena and completed the double with a 3-2 victory at the Signal Iduna Park. Moreover, they have seen three or more goals in eight of their last ten competitive outings. Compared to their rivals, Nagelsmann charges are not as expressive in attack but can be relied upon to trouble the scorers. Given Dortmund's defensive deficiencies and the need of the hour, a goalscoring extravaganza is expected as the two outfits meet each other for the third time this season.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
To find out the last time Borussia Dortmund drew a blank, one has to go back into the 2019/20 season. Der BVB like to score, even if it comes at the expense of their declining defensive abilities. RB Leipzig have been hamstrung by the departure of Timo Werner but have scraped by at the expense of their rivals. Given the magnitude of the occasion and Dani Olmo's supreme form, expect Die Roten Bullen to trouble the scorers in search of their first DFB Pokal title.
RB Leipzig vs Dortmund: Team News and Match Preview
Despite their recent indifferent form in the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig are favourites to finish in second place. However, they can still finish the campaign with silverware if they can triumph over Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night. The odds of that eventuality are low given their inability to triumph over Der BVB in seven attempts. Julien Nagelsmann has been let down by his defence against Dortmund, conceding six goals across their two Bundesliga meetings. The defeat to Dortmund would weigh heavily on them but there were positives to take out from their away trip. Dani Olmo continues to thrive under Nagelsmann, scoring his sixth goal of the season against their rivals for the Pokal crown.
Edin Terzic's men will be in high spirits after inching inside the top-four with a 3-2 win over RB Leipzig. Their sole silverware opportunity will come against the same rivals, whom they have comprehensively beaten in their two meetings this season. While Erling Haaland did not get on the scoreboard against Die Roten Bullen, his partners in crime showed ruthless efficiency in front of the goal. Marco Reus opened the scoring in the opening period, while Jadon Sancho chipped in with a brace in the second half.
