RB coach Ralf Rangnick wants to beat his successor Julian Nagelsmann. “We want to move forward and will do everything we can,” he said.
But Rangnick is well aware that this will not be an easy task: “The match sounds more like a quarter-final or semi-final. Hoffenheim would also have wished for an easier draw.”
After this season, Nagelsmann will leave Hoffenheim for Leipzig, where he was head coach of the TSG for three years.
However, RBL will have to deal with slight injury problems today, the offensive playmaker Emil Forsberg continues to fall out with groin complaints, and the back-back Marcelo Saracchi is still red-locked. However, midfielder Kevin Kampl should be fully operational.
