Our football match prediction:
Olympiastadion Berlin will host the 2016/2017 DFB Pokal final. Eintracht Frankfurt have defeated the likes of Magdeburg, Ingolstadt, Hannover, Arminia Bielefeld and Borussia M’gladbach on their way to the final, but Borussia Dortmund are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Eagles than their previous rivals. Eintracht are on a four-game winless run ahead of the trip to Berlin and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the underdogs this time out. Niko Kovac’s team are after their fifth German Cup trophy, but it has been 29 years since they won their last title in the competition. Thanks to a 4-3 win over Werder Bremen Borussia Dortmund secured automatic qualification for the Champions League and they are certainly high on confidence ahead of the DFB Pokal final. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been scoring goals for fun this season and seeing that Marco Reus is fully fit ahead of Saturday’s football match, we predict that the Millionaires are going to win their fourth DFB Pokal trophy.
Highlighted Player (Marco Fabian):
Marco Fabian is a 26-year-old midfielder who plays for German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. This attacking midfielder has started his youth career at Guadalajara before making his senior professional debut with the Mexican club in 2007. Over eight seasons with them, Fabian became a regular and scored more than 50 goals for them. He moved to Eintracht Frankfurt in late 2015. Fabian represented Mexico across various youth levels before finally graduating to the senior team. He earned his first senior cap in 2012 and played his first major tournament with the senior team at the 2013 Gold Cup. He was one of the revelations for Mexico in that tournament with three goals and equal number of assists. Fabian has 25 national caps to his name and six goals to his credit so far. Often regarded for his pace and great long range shots, Fabian has a 2014 FIFA Puskas Award nomination to his credit.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
