Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
A place in the German Cup round 4 will be at stake when Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen face each other at Signal-Iduna-Park on Matchday 21. The Millionaires set up a meeting with die Werderaner by beating the likes of Greuther Furth and Union Berlin after extra-time, but they are still considered hot favourites to win Tuesday’s football match. Lucien Favre is likely to mix the squad, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, home win should be considered. Werder Bremen, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travelers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Borussia’s party at Signal-Iduna-Park. In their last meeting in the German top flight Borussia Dortmund recorded a 2-1 win over Werder Bremen, with Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus scoring for the hosts, with Max Kruse finding the net for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Marco Reus):
Marco Reus is a German football player who was born on 31 May, 1989. The pacey attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, started his senior career at Rot Weiss Ahlen and it has to be noted that he made 43 league appearances for the club in lower leagues.
In 2009 he signed a four-year contract with Borussia M’gladbach and he scored his first Bundesliga goal against Mainz on 28 August, 2009. After impressing with the Fohlen in the 2011/2012 Bundesliga campaign, he joined Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. He has been playing for the Millionaires ever since and he represents Germany on the international stage as well.
However, he was more than unfortunate to miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup with injury when Joachim Low’s team lifted the prestigious trophy. To make things even worse for Marco Reus, he was forced to withdraw from the Germany Euro 2016 squad as well (injury). The German ace has a contract with Borussia Dortmund which expires on 30 June, 2019.
