[banner][/banner]  Borussia Dortmund, chasing the Bundesliga title this season, will also look to add the DFB-Pokal as a route to silverware this season by overcoming Leipzig in the quarters. RB Leipzig hope to preserve their only chance for silverware this season after falling off the Bundesliga title race and being dumped out of the Champions League by Man City.

Key Highlights

RB Leipzig’s Difficult Form

After they were dumped out of the Champions League by English Premier League champions Man City in a sobering 7-0 hammering at the Etihad Stadium, RB Leipzig followed it up with an inauspicious 1-0 defeat away to VfL Bochum. Marco Rose's men's indifferent run of form has seen them drop out of the top four in the Bundesliga. They are currently fifth on the table, 2 points behind fourth-placed SC Freiburg and a further 8 points behind league leaders and their Wednesday opponents, Dortmund. With this backdrop, Marco Rose and his charges will look to turn their season around in the cup in yet another big match that could potentially be season-defining for the Red Bull Arena side.

Borussia Dortmund’s flying Form

Besides going out of the Champions League at the hands of Chelsea in the round-of-16, Edin Terzić and his men have had a brilliant season so far. They lead the table by a point ahead of the 26th round of the Bundesliga, and they are looking to make it to the semi-finals on Wednesday when they travel to face RB Leipzig. Edin Terzić will be looking to maintain the high standards of his side’s performances this season when they face Leipzig. However, the challenge for the gaffer is keeping his players grounded and focused on the cup even as they go all out for the Bundesliga. A semi-final in the DFB-Pokal is a big match for Dortmund; however, a chance for a domestic double will be as appealing to the black and yellow. This forms the motivation and drive for Edin Terzić and the die Schwarzgelben faithful.

Injury Report

RB Leipzig

Marco Rose will be without some key players in the huge clash against Dortmund on Wednesday. Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi (cruciate ligament rupture), center back Abdou Diallo (knee problems), and forward Christopher Nkunku (torn muscle giber) are all out of selection. RB Leipzig will also be without central midfielder Xaver Schlager (syndesmotic ligament tear) and goalkeeper Timo Schlieck (meniscal injury).

Absentees include right-back Mateu Morey Bauze (fitness), center-forward Youssoufa Moukoko (ruptured syndesmotic ligament), left-winger Karim Adeyemi (torn muscle fiver), and left-winger Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (shoulder).

An engaging battle at the top of the Bundesliga standings will take place this weekend, as two of the teams located in the top four places will lock horns. Bayern Munich could stretch their advantage at the top of the standings to five points with a victory on the road.

  

Bundesliga Preview

Bayern Munich was in no mood to give the chasing pack confidence last weekend, as they cruised to an easy victory against Borussia Dortmund. They will be bidding to extend their advantage at the top of the standings this weekend, as a victory against Freiburg could see them open up a gap of five points over the second-ranked team in the division. 

Thomas Tuchel got an immediate response from his new side against Dortmund, as the league leaders cruised into a 4-0 lead, before switching off and allowing their rivals to net twice in response. Thomas Muller was back to his very best at the Allianz last weekend, as he scored twice in the space of five first half minutes, while Kingsley Coman completed the scoring five minutes into the second half. 

Freiburg has been one of the best performing sides in the Bundesliga this term, and they remain on course for an unlikely finish in the Champions League spots this term. They currently sit fourth in the standings, and hold a two-point advantage in the race for fourth over RB Leipzig. 

Freiburg has gone five without a defeat in the Bundesliga coming into this round of fixtures, but they have picked up just a single victory over that period. The hosts this weekend have been held to draws in each of their previous two, with the latest of those coming against Hertha Berlin last weekend. 

Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Head to Head 

Freiburg has picked up just one victory in their previous 25 matches against Bayern Munich, with the Bavarians claiming 19 wins over the same period. Bayern has won each of the previous three against Freiburg, and have scored a total of eleven goals.

Freiburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction 

Freiburg’s dip in form is a concern coming into this fixture, and it appears hard to see Bayern faltering after an impressive display last weekend. Therefore, we expect the league leaders to claim a comprehensive victory on the road this weekend.
