Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Essen and Holstein Kiel square off against each other at Stadion Essen in the German Cup quarter-finals. Essen did well to shock Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16, but keep in mind that they head into Wednesday’s clash following a heavy 3-0 loss to Dusseldorf II in the Regionalliga. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced attacker Simon Engelmann, who has netted 19 goals in the league so far this season.
Holstein Kiel, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aue. Kiel’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to the Bundesliga, but they have big ambitions for the DFB Pokal as well. Considering that Essen failed to impress in their last league fixture, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visiting team.
