Those led by Hannes Wolf are one of the candidates to get the promotion to the German Bundesliga this season, and we say it because Hamburg is in second place with 53 points and so far has been one of the first two places that carry Directly to the promotion, but he knows he can not be so calm that we can say that Paderbon has been two points below and even the fourth that is Union Berlin has gotten into the fight by being down to three points.
And this is largely due to the drop in performance achieved in these last days where Hamburg has only been able to get a victory in the last six games and this came in his game in the previous round of the DFB Pokal, so the moment It is not quite adequate to play a semifinal, but in the end they want to take advantage of their condition as homeowners on Tuesday.
For their part, those led by Ralf Rangnick are fully confident, so Leipzig is coming off 1-2 win in his visit to Borussia Monchengladbach and with it added a streak of six consecutive victories where five of them were for the German Bundesliga and thus they secured themselves among the first four classifieds that go to the next edition of the UEFA Champions League.
