After shockingly reaching the 1/2-finals of the Champions League, RB Leipzig are now ready to make another strong season. On Saturday they will start their 2020/21 campaign with a visit to Nurnberg in the first round of the DFB Pokal. Let’s see what’s going on with our football betting tips this weekend.
Let’s start with the home team here. Nurnberg are currently playing in the Germany’s 2. Bundesliga, but the club is still trying to return to the Bundesliga. For a long time Nurnberg were members of the elite division, but recently they are struggling to get back in the top tier.
On the market Nurnberg didn’t have much cash to spend, especially with this COVID-19 situation which goes on. The club bought Wehen Wiesbaden’s Manuel Schaffer and Hertha BSC’ Pascal Kopke, while they also loaned RB Leipzig’s Tom Kraus and Bayern Munich’s Christian Fruchtl.
The match against RB Leipzig will be a debut for the new manager Robert Klaus who’s just 35-years old.
RB Leipzig are getting better and better with each season and their performance in the Champions League was their peak so far. The club got really lucky to sign the manager Julian Nagelsmann and right now the Red Bulls are progressing quickly.
On the market RB Leipzig had the tough job to replace the star striker Timo Werner who moved to England. They chose the Korean forward Hee-chan Hwang who was signed from the sister club RB Salzburg. Meanwhile Leipzig also signed the Spanish goalkeeper Josep Martinez from Las Palmas.
That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the DFB Pokal fixture between Nurnberg and RB Leipzig. For both teams this is going to be a first game for the new season. Leipzig are the obvious favourite and the much bigger club at the moment. Let’s see if they are going to show it on the pitch, too.
