DFB Pokal predictions by Footballpredictions.com
DFB Pokal is the most popular cup competition in Germany, with 64 teams taking part in the competition from round 1.
Each round is played as a single leg, with title game being hosted by Olympiastadion in Berlin in May. Similar to other cup competitions, the winners of the German Cup book their place in the Europa League.
If the teams are level after 90 minutes, game goes into extra-time, which is followed by penalty shootout if needed.
Back in 1935 Nurnberg and Schalke faced each other in the final of the first edition of the DFB Pokal, with the Bavarians emerging triumphant (2-0).
