Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
A place in the DFB Pokal final will be at stake when Bayern Munchen and Eintracht Frankfurt face each other at Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening. Thanks to a 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munchen moved one step closer to winning the Bundesliga trophy, but they aim to go all the way in the German Cup as well. The Bavarian giants are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Eintracht Frankfurt, and given die Adler’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
Adolf Hutter’s men have defeated the likes of Mannheim, St. Pauli, Leipzig, and Werder Bremen on their way to the German Cup semis, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Bayern Munchen. Robert Lewandowski, who extended his goal-scoring run against Bayer Leverkusen, will be the man to watch in the home team.
