Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Ludwigspark Stadion will be packed when Saarbrucken welcome Bundesliga side Borrusia M’gladbach in the DFB quarter-finals on Wednesday evening. The 3. Liga outfit failed to win the previous three league matches and, as a result, the bookies see them as the underdogs in the German Cup clash. Defender Fabio Di Michele Sanchez should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in a 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund II.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, failed to spoil Bayern Munich’s party at Allianz Arena, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. David faces Goliath at Ludwigspark Stadion and we predict that the visitors are going to advance to the DFB Pokal semis. All Cvancara, Herrmann, Omlin, and Ullrich are sidelined with injuries, while Wednesday’s game comes too early for Ko Itakura, who represented Japan at the Asian Cup.
