Hamburger SV vs RB Leipzig
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Volksparkstadion (Hamburg).
Leipzig has got a huge chance to make a cruise towards the final of the German domestic cup. They are pitted against a second-division side, with the only factor going against them being their road status.
Both these teams are major players in the top tiers of their respective leagues. The difference being, Leipzig is vying to get into the Champions League, while their counterparts are aiming for a place in the top division.
Dortmund is out of the competition, and that’s half the job done for a team like Leipzig, who’ll definitely have an eye on the title, considering a league triumph may be out of the question. As a cherry on top, they could wish for Bayern to crash out against Werder, and it’d be Christmas for the fans.
Hamburger SV vs RB Leipzig Head-to-head (h2h)

- Leipzig has a 100% winning record at this stadium.
Hamburger SV vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Leipzig is the huge favorite to advance to the final, and the most obvious reason is the statures of the leagues these teams take part in, and their subsequent seasonal objectives. While Leipzig is in the top division and is a frontrunner to qualify for the Champions League, Hamburger is trying to get a spot in the 18-team list in the next edition of the Bundesliga. Currently, they are plying their trade in the 2.Bundesliga.
Moreover, h2h ties clearly show a trend of the road teams having the upper hand. Not a single time a host side has won, and except for once, they have failed to score every time. In addition, a team on the road has never failed to find the back of the net, and importantly, Leipzig has a 100% winning record at this venue and has never conceded a goal here. They have also scored two or more goals in every attempt.
Expect Leipzig to dash into the final in style.
