Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
After rolling over the likes of Unterhaching and Jahn Regensburg Heidenheim will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt at their Voith-Arena. The 2. Bundesliga side have been struggling in the German second tier this season and they sit in the danger zone in the standings ahead of Wednesday’s football match against die Adler. Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, have established themselves as a top-table side in Bundesliga and it is no surprise they are seen as hot favourites to win the Voith-Arena clash. The Bundesliga side outclassed the likes of Erndtebruck and Schweinfurt in the first two rounds of the German Cup and they are widely expected to make it to the quarter-finals of the competition. When the two teams met in a friendly in 2015 Heidenheim defeated Eintracht Frankfurt, thus die Adler are hungry to get their revenge on the 2. Bundesliga team.
