Hamburger SV vs RB Leipzig (By: DamirJ)
HSV was huge favorite to get the victory over Aue at home, but the side was limited and held to a 1:1 game only last Saturday afternoon.
They had much more of the ball possession, however the side failed to be more concrete. Still, they are two points above third placed Paderborn and do remain favorites to clinch the direct promotion.
RB Leipzig took a very important victory away from home 1:2 against Gladbach in a game that probably decided their future of playing in the Champions League next season.
They simply took the lead and held back, not being in need to chase anything and managed to lower down the tempo. They are now safe having ten points more than fifth-placed Gladbach and can focus on the Cup game.
The home side misses central defender Jung (9/0) and also offensive players Ito (14/0) and Samperio (2/0). The guests miss central back Upamecano (14/0) and defensive midfielder Adams (9/0).
HSV has very little to lose here knowing that their primary focus is 2. Bundesliga, while they surely know that they can't defend all night long. Neither they will be able to, since RB Leipzig posses great quality in attack. There's plenty of more quality speaking in favor of the visiting side, that should end up victorious in an very open game.
