Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Bayern Munchen will be aiming to build on a 3-1 win over Mainz when they welcome Hoffenheim at their Allianz Arena in the German Cup last 16. The mighty Bavarians have been scoring goals for fun in 2020, and it should come as no surprise that they are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s football match. Bayern Munchen head into the match as the Bundesliga leaders as they overtook Leipzig in the top position after round 20.
Robert Lewandowski, who is enjoying yet another season to remember, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team. Hoffenheim, on the other hand, did well to beat Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen in the previous two league fixtures, but they face an uphill task in the German Cup showdown against the German giants, who are eager to win everything in the 2019/2020 season.
