Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
After beating the likes of Jeddeloh and Sandhausen in the first two rounds of the German Cup, Heidenheim will be looking to claim a major scalp when they welcome Bayer Leverkusen at their Voith-Arena. The 2. Bundesliga side have been in a fine form in the league of late and they head into Tuesday’s football match following a 1-0 win over Dynamo Dresden. Heidenheim have been scoring goals for fun in the DFB Pokal this term, but we do not believe that they are capable of matching the Bundesliga side in round 3. The BayArena outfit proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Bayern Munchen at the weekend, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the German Cup clash. Leon Bailey looked unstoppable against the mighty Bavarians and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for Heidenheim defenders.
Highlighted Player (Leon Bailey):
Leon Bailey is a Phoenix All Stars Academy product who was born in Kingston on August 9, 1997. The Jamaica international played for the likes of FC Liefering and Trencin during his youth career, but he made his senior debut with Belgian side Genk in August, 2015 in a 3-1 win over Saint-Truiden.
The pacey winger quickly established himself as one of the best players in the Belgian top flight, but he scored only 8 goals in 56 appearances for Genk from 2015 to 2017. In the winter of 2017 Leon Bailey signed a deal with Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of €20 million. Bailey is a left-footed footballer, but he is capable of playing on both sides of the field.
