Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
A spot in the German Cup quarter-finals will be at stake when Hoffenheim and Freiburg face each other at PreZero Arena. Hoffenheim continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Samassekou is on international duty, while all Bicakcic, Gacinovic, SKov, Kaderabek, and John are likely to miss the game with injuries. Both Kasim and Grillitsch have been tested positive for coronavirus.
Christian Streich’s troops, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund. Considering that Hoffenheim are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors will suffer relegation in the DFB Pokal last 16. All Flekken, Sildillia, and Schlotterbeck have been tested positive for coronavirus, speaking of the away team.
