Ahead of this game, Leipzig came from two goals down to beat Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2, scoring two or more goals for the fifth time in six matches. They have now failed to score in just two of their last 15 matches and carry three straight clean sheets in the DFB Pokal, having scored three or more in this competition.
