“We have to deliver”: Leipzig star Forsberg puts pressure on the title



The DFB Cup is one of Emil Forsberg’s favorite competitions (31/7 goals in 21 games) – and Leipzig’s Swede will also be in the starting XI in the round of 16 against TSG Hoffenheim on Wednesday (6 p.m.).

The downside: The fan favorite benefits from the injury to Dani Olmo (24/torn fiber), who will be absent from RB for weeks.

“Dani was in great shape, so the diagnosis was a setback,” says Forsberg. And adds: “As long as he and Christo (Nkunku/outside band, ed.) are still missing, we have to absorb it as a team.”

After the last 16 competitive games without bankruptcy, he is convinced that RB will succeed!

What speaks for it: Opponent Hoffenheim is in crisis and has been waiting for a win in the league for eight games. The experienced playmaker nevertheless warns: “It will be anything but easy. Hoffenheim have really strong kickers and play good football.”


Also through Leipzig loan Angeliño (26)! Forsberg: “Angel is a good friend of mine, so I’m really looking forward to the game.”


And then? Can RB continue to attack Bayern in the Bundesliga, despite the mini-squad and the triple burden? In the last two games, the reigning cup winners have already caught up four points on the struggling record champions.

Forsberg: “Honestly, I don’t look at what Bayern are doing. We have to deliver and that constantly over the coming weeks and months. Then we’ll see what’s possible.”

First of all, getting into the quarter-finals of the cup…
