Competition: DFP Pokal

Market: RB Leipzig win

Odds: 8/15 @ 888sport

Two Bundesliga outfits who will turn their attention back to DFP Pokal duties on Wednesday evening, RB Leipzig will welcome Hoffenheim to the Red Bull Arena.

Starting with the hosts, putting in another eye-catching display last weekend as they claimed a 2-1 victory at home against Stuttgart, RB Leipzig have their sights set on making real Bundesliga history this season. Sat just three points adrift of defending champions Bayern Munich, Marco Rose’s men are unbeaten in each of their previous 16 straight matchups across all formats. With that run stemming all the way back to September 17th, the former Borussia Dortmund boss should find the mood in his camp at a real high. Extending on their DFP Pokal adventure thanks to a routine 4-0 romp against Hamburg, RB Leipzig have also continued to gain a reputation for their free-scoring displays on home soil. Breezing their way to the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League after clinching a famous 3-2 victory against Real Madrid, Rose’s side are rightfully tipped as a standout pick on Wednesday night.

As for the visitors, while Hoffeinehim might have opened the 2022/23 campaign with their sights set on mounting a genuine European charge, Andre Breitenreiter’s side are enduring another downbeat rut. Last seen putting in a nightmare display as they were hit with a shock 4-1 drumming at home against Borussia Monchengladbach, the former Zurich boss does find some growing pressure on his shoulders. Marking their return from the World Cup break with a 3-1 loss at the hands of Union Berlin, the Blues are without a single victory from their previous eight Bundesliga outings. With that woeful spell stemming all the way back to October 14th, Wednesday’s guests should also be worried by their most recent meeting against the title chasers. Slumping to a 3-1 loss when they welcomed RB Leipzig to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena earlier in the season, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
