Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
A spot in the German Cup last 16 will be at stake when Elversberg and Borussia M’gladbach face each other at URSAPHARM-Arena an der Kaiserlinde on Tuesday evening. The Regionalliga side kicked off their German Cup campaign with a 4-2 win over St. Pauli, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the Bundesliga side. Die Fohlen are desperate to return to winning ways following a shocking 2-1 loss to Hoffenheim, and we are positive that they will take the DFB Pokal clash very seriously.
Since the game will be played behind closed doors, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. The likes of Traore, Wolf, and Zakaria should return to the starting XI, while Hoffmann, Plea, and Reitz remain in the recovery room for Borussia M’gladbach. Embolo is widely expected to lead the line for the viistors.
Highlighted Player (Christoph Kramer):
Christoph Kramer is a German midfielder born in Solingen on 19 February 1991, and he is most famous for helping Germany lift the 2014 World Cup trophy. The defensive midfielder came to prominence after signing for Bayer Leverkusen, but it was the loan spells with VFL Bochum and Borussia M’gladbach that seriously aided his development.
Kramer received a surprise call up to Joachim Low’s World Cup squad, and he made a total of three appearances in Brazil, even starting the final against Argentina. The midfielder, however, suffered a concussion just after the half hour mark and he later confessed that he couldn’t remember anything from the most important game in his career.
Kramer remained a member of the Germany national team, making three appearances in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, and there is plenty of time for him to represent the country at another major tournament, playing a more important role than the one he had at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
