This is duel between second-division and first-division team at the beginning of DFB-Pokal. Osnabruck competes in the 2.Bundsliga only from this season, while Leipzig was the Cup finalist last year and did very good in the Bundesliga as it ended up in the 3rd place. Osnabruck started the new season in the 2.Bundesliga with defeat and victory. Leipzig won their last head-to-head played in 2014 by 1-0.
After eight seasons in the third league Osnabruck is back in the 2.Bundesliga and wants to stay there, while in the Cup they probably don't have any special ambitions. They were unlucky with the draw as they got for the opponent last season's finalist and one of best German teams. Osnabruck lost o Heidenheim at home in the first round of the 2.Bundesliga by 1-3 despite being first to score. They lost in the finish of match when they received three goals. They did better in the second round when they won Sandhausen away thanks to Alvarez’s goal. They have plenty of problems with injuries and even six players are out of action.
Leipzig played brilliantly in the Cup last season and reached the finals but they couldn’t parry Bayern. They didn’t win the first title in the club’s history but they completed the successful season with winning the third place in the Bundesliga. That is why Leipzig will play in the Champions League this season and they want to make good result in it after disappointments in the Europa League last season. Manager Ralf Rangnick has left and now there's young Julian Nagelsmann who led Hoffenheim very successfully before. Leipzig sold forward Brumu and that was the only departure, while midfielder Nkunku is new member of the team, just like wingers Wolf and Candido. Adams, Upamecan and Wolf are out of action due to injuries.
Osnabruck plays this season in the 2.Bundesglia and it has 50% success, however, they face now last year’s finalist of the DFB-Pokal which is even stronger this year and harbours great ambitions. We believe that Leipzig will pass the first obstacle in the Cup without any problems.
