Werder Bremen vs RB Leipzig, DFB Cup Semis 30.04.2021

After narrowly escaping the chop from the Bundesliga last season, the Grim Reaper seems to back again for The River Islanders as they find themselves in yet another relegation dog fight. Their 3-1 defeat at Union Berlin at the weekend extended Die Werderaner’s losing streak to seven league matches (the longest in their history), leaving them only one point ahead of the relegation playoff position with three games left to play.
They now turn their attention to the Cup hoping to salvage anything from their disastrous season. They have had quite a bit of luck in the draws, avoiding Bundesliga opponents up until now.
Coach Florian Kohfeldt has a difficult task of preparing against the team they lost 4-1 to in the league less than a month ago. He will nevertheless hope the players can put aside the woeful league form and channel all their energy to this cup.
After weeks of speculation, it was confirmed this week that RB Leipzig’s coach Nagelsmann will replace Hansi Flick as Bayern’s manager from next season after a successful two-year spell at the club. Although the Bundesliga race is still mathematically achievable, realistically, Nagelsmann will view this cup as a more achievable target and he will certainly relish the chance to exit the club while delivering their first major title between now and the end of the season.
They have had a successful run in this season’s competition, dispatching far more formidable opponents like Nuremberg, Augsburg, VfL Bochum and Wolfsburg along the way while keeping a clean sheet all through.
Unless there is any fallout within the club after a rather trying week, they should not have any difficulties making early reservations for the Mid May finals.

WERDER BREMEN VS RB LEIZIG BETTING PREDICTION
With the Bundesliga title all but lost to Bayern Munich, along with their own coach, RB Leipzig will certainly train their guns on this competition as their saving grace for this season. They thrashed a struggling Bremen team 4-1 in the league about three weeks ago, and all factors constant, we should not expect any miraculous turnaround here. We fancy Leipzig to dominate this game from the get-go and we are backing them to win with a -1 handicap @ 1.92 with Odibets as our opening betting tip.
Leipzig have been scoring for fun away from home in the Bundesliga in their recent travels and this trend is likely to replicate here. They have found the back of the net 15 times in just their last six away matches. The beauty of Nagelsmann’s attacking style is its versatility. Since the departure of Timo Werner from the club last summer, he has not had an out-and-out scorer leading the team. They’ve been doing it by committee. One player that has however stood out in this system is Christopher Nkunku. The former PSG midfielder has been the Swiss Army knife on the team scoring goals at critical times. This is a game where his contribution will be needed with both Poulsen and Szoboszlai missing with injury. We are backing him to score anytime @ 2.65 as our last shout here.
