Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
High-flying Bayern Munich will look to extend their winning run to seven games in all competitions when they take on Freiburg in the DFB Pokal quarter-finals. The Bavarians have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Thomas Muller should keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace in a 4-2 win over Borussia Dortmund, while Sadio Mane should replace Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting as a centre-forward. Both Manuel Neuer and Lucas Hernandez remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Christian Streich’s troops, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-1 draw with Hertha, and given Bayern Munich’s fine home record (9-4-0) in the Bundesliga, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of claiming a major scalp in the German Cup quarter-finals. Michael Gregoritsch is back from suspension, while all Lukas Kubler, Kenneth Schmidt, Philipp Lienhart, and Daniel-Kofi Kyereh remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Sadio Mané):
Sadio Mane is a Senegalese footballer who plays for Liverpool as a winger. Mane was born in Sedhiou Senegal on April 10, 1992, but he made his senior debut at French club Metz. In 2012 he moved to Red Bull Salzburg, with the pacey winger scoring 31 goals in 63 appearances for the club in the Austrian Bundesliga.
Mane then decided to take a step forward in his career as he joined famous Premier League club Liverpool for a fee of £34 million, signing a five-year contract with the Reds. The Senegal international quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Liverpool and, no doubt, he helped the Anfield outfit make it to the 2017/2018 Champions League final.
Speaking of trophies, Sadio Mane won the Austrian Bundesliga with Salzburg in the 2013/2014 season. In 2017 he was named Liverpool player of the year for the 2016/2017 season.
