RB Leipzig host Hamburg at the Red Bull Arena in the second round of the German Cup on Tuesday, with both sides having had contrasting seasons so far.
RB Leipzig are currently tenth in the Bundesliga, two points behind the top four. Marco Rose’s side have been in strong form recently, unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions, including four wins. They will look to extend their unbeaten run this week with a win against Hamburg.
Hamburg, on the other hand, are currently third in the 2nd Bundesliga, two points behind the top of the table. Tim Walter’s side have been in decent form lately, having won three of their last five games in all competitions. They want to take this momentum into the game against Leipzig on Tuesday.
Both sides will want to advance to the next round and that should make for a hard fought matchup.

RB Leipzig vs Hamburg Prediction
The two sides have been in good form lately and that should show during Tuesday’s game.
Leipzig has to do without numerous players with Christopher Nkunku, Daniel Olmo, Konrad Laimer, Lukas Klostermann, Emil Forsberg, Peter Gulacsi and Timo Werner. Ogechika Heil and Tim Leibold are injured for Hamburg.
Although both teams have been in similar form lately, Leipzig’s quality should be enough to get past Hamburg on Tuesday.
