Head coach Julian Nagelsmann will have the last chance to win his first major title so far with RB Leipzig when his team take on Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup final on Thursday. 33-year-old Julian will now become Bayern Munich coach this summer. In such a situation, he would like to end his title drought on the go. Julian has won only one of the 11 league finals against his opponents so far. “The record is not remarkable. It is time to win a game. Thursday is our next chance. We have to take it right there,” Nagelsmann said, according to the DPA news agency.
To win the trophy with RB Leipzig, Julian Nagelsmann must cross a negative race against Dortmund. He has won just one of 11 league matches against opponents in the final of the cup. Dortmund’s late 3–2 win on Saturday led to a negative run.
Leipzig had earlier suffered a defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the German Cup final in 2019. He said,” It was a great experience, which I will never forget. Now I have one more chance and I want to end it as the winner. “
Dortmund midfielder Julian Brandt believes that no team can be considered a title contender. “I think there will be a tough match between the two teams and anything can happen here,” he said. Dortmund’s team last reached the final of the 2017 German Cup, where they beat Frankfurt 2–1. Was If the team wins on Thursday, it will be its fifth title overall.
Leipzig reached the finals after a tough clash with Werder Bremen, who ensured a 2–1 victory only due to an extended goal by Emil Forsberg. “It was a great experience that I will never forget. In an interview on the German Football Federation (DFB) website, Forsberg said, “Now I have one more chance and I want to leave the field as the winner.”
Dortmund played the final of the competition in 2017 when they defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 2–1. A win this season would normally be the fifth win of the cup.
