Our football match prediction:
Borussia Dortmund and Hertha Berlin face each other in the German Cup round 3 in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Wednesday’s program. The Millionaires produced a fine display in a 1-0 win over Leipzig at the weekend and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they welcome Hertha at their Signal-Iduna-Park. It has been five years since Borussia Dortmund won their last DFB Pokal trophy and seeing that they have slim chances of winning the Bundesliga title, we predict that Thomas Tuchel’s troops will take Wednesday’s football game very seriously. The capital club recorded a hard-fought win over Ingolstadt at the weekend, but seeing that their displays on the road leave a lot to be desired, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Borussia Dortmund’s party at Signal-Iduna-Park. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been impressive in front of goal this season and he is likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders.
Highligted Player (Piszczek):
Born on 3rd June 1985, Lukasz Piszczek is one of Poland’s most famous footballers at the moment, having made a name for himself thanks to some impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund. The full-back’s talent was spotted early on by Hertha scouts, and it is important to note that he began his career as a striker, winning the top goalscorer award at the Under-19 Euro in 2004. Following some excellent displays at said tournament, Piszczek was signed by Hertha, but he would go on to spend next three years on loan at Zaglebie Lubin. After returning to the club, the Polish footballer played on the left wing, but then switched to right-back as Arne Friedrich got injured and has played there ever since. In May 2010, Piszczek signed for Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer and has since developed into one of world’s leading right-sided defenders, sparking interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United. The full-back made over 45 appearances for the national team since he was handed his debut in 2007, representing his country at three successive European Championship finals.
