Hamburger SV hosts RB Leipzig
Hamburger SV hosts RB Leipzig at the Volkparkstadion in Hamburg in a first 1/2-final from the DFB Pokal. Let’s take a look at this game on Tuesday night in our vip soccer bets for today.
Despite of currently playing in the 2. Bundesliga, Hamburger have a realistic chance to reach the DFB Pokal final in Berlin. During the 1/4-finals Hannes Wolf’s players eliminated another team from the 2. Bundesliga – Paderborn, beating them with 2-0 away from home. Both goals in the game were scored by the central forward Pierre Lasogga.
In the 2. Bundesliga HSV are doing pretty well, being close to a return to the Bundesliga. Right now Hamburger are 2nd in the league standings with 53 points, having 2 points advantage in front of the 3rd Paderborn. But lately Hamburger are not in a good form – they are without a win in their last five games in the 2. Bundesliga, doing three draws and suffering two losses.
RB Leipzig reached the 1/2-finals of the competition after a very difficult win during the previous round. Ralph Rangnick’s team had to visit Augsburg at the WWK Arena. Timo Werner opened the score for Leipzig just 15 minutes before the end, but Augsburg’s Alfredh Finnbogason equalised literally in the last seconds of the match. The game went to extra time, where RB Leipzig recieved a great chance to execute a penalty in the 120th minute. Marcel Halstenberg beat Gregor Kobel and sent his team to the 1/2-finals.
In the Bundesliga RB Leipzig continue to do well, being 3rd in the league with 61 points. They are heading towards another paricipation in the Champions League.
That’s our vip soccer bets for the DFB Pokal first 1/2-final between Hamburger SV and RB Leipzig on Tuesday night.
