Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Hamburgers SV will be looking to make amends for a heart-breaking loss to Werder Bremen when they take on Karlsruher in the DFB Pokal quarter-finals. Robert Glatzel, who found the net in the 2. Bundesliga derby at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the home team, while both Tim Leibold and Stephan Ambrosius should miss out with injuries. Karlsruher, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Schalke.
Christian Eichner’s troops have been in a fine form of late, and seeing that HSV experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the loss to die Werderaner, we are tempted to put our money on draw. All Robin Bormuth, Sebastian Jung, Paul Lohr, and Leon Jensen should miss out with injuries, speaking of the away side. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
