Leipzig (AP) - RB Leipzig striker Alexander Sörloth does not want to be fooled by the 4-1 victory in the championship a few weeks ago before the semi-finals in the DFB Cup on Friday (8.30 p.m. / ARD and Sky) at SV Werder Bremen.

«Yes, that was a clear win, but Werder will get extra motivation from it.

We know that the 4: 1 is no longer worth anything, maybe even a disadvantage, ”said Sörloth of“ Sport Bild ”.

The Norwegian scored two goals himself on April 10 and made “one of the best” games in the RB jersey, as Sörloth explained.

The sense of achievement helped him and made the 25-year-old even more interested in the semi-finals: "When I play against teams that I have already scored against, I automatically have a good feeling on the day of the game."

Since the chances for Leipzig in the fight for the German championship title are very slim, Sörloth is now aiming to win the DFB Cup with RB.

“To do this, we first have to pass Bremen.

But of course, with the cup win we can turn a good season into a very good one if we reach the Champions League again, ”said Sörloth.

And further: «Leipzig is a young club with big goals.

I know how important titles are for development and how good they feel. "
