Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Wednesday’s football match at Stadion im Borussia-Park pits together Borussia M’gladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, the two teams who aim to go all the way in the German Cup this season. Borussia M’gladbach rolled over Hastedt 11-1 in the opening match of their DFB Pokal campaign, but Bayer are likely to pose a much bigger threat for die Fohlen than their previous rivals. Borussia M’gladbach experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Freiburg at the weekend, which is yet another reason why home win should not be considered. Bayer Leverkusen did well to hammer Werder Bremen 6-2 at Weserstadion in their last league match and we believe that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Wednesday evening. A man to watch in the away team will be Karim Bellarabi, who produced a fine display in the 6-2 win over die Werderaner.
