Our football match prediction:
Hannover 96 and Eintracht Frankfurt take on each other at HDI-Arena in the third round of the DFB Pokal. The two teams meet in the German Cup for the first time ever and it remains to be seen who will emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s football game. Eintracht Frankfurt sit in third place in the Bundesliga standings and they head into the match following a 2-0 win over Darmstadt. Die Adler have been in a splendid form of late, but the German Cup clash against Hannover will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors. Die Roten won their first and only DFB Pokal trophy back in 1992 and the fact that they crushed Fortuna Dusseldorf (6-1) in round 2 is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Eintracht Frankfurt. Hannover are tough to beat at home and we predict that they play out a draw with the Bundesliga outfit in the regular time.
