For coach Urs Fischer Union Berlin goes as an outsider in the DFB Cup semi-final at RB Leipzig.

“We need an optimal game to care for a surprise,” said Fischer before the game on Wednesday (20:45 clock). A progress against the extremely dimensional Saxony would be “a small sensation” according to Fischer.

Union waves the first cup final since 2001 and the second of club history. For the dream of the final in the Olympic Stadium on May 21, Fischer makes his players even “train a few penalties”. As a punishment, “pizza or clean up are very popular” for the loser, “said the Swiss laughing.

But the Ironanes also want to take the momentum from the league with three wins in series and the 2-0 home success against Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

“The first half gives us upswing, so a performance we need against Leipzig over 90 minutes,” emphasized Fischer, who certified RB a “enormous individual quality”.

Both teams are still waiting for a triumph in the DFB Cup. As the only one of the four semi-finalists so far only second division Hamburger SV has already won the Cup (1963, 1976 and 1987).
