Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Werder Bremen will be looking to bounce back from a heavy 6-2 loss to Bayer Leverkusen when they take on Weiche Flensburg at Stadion Lohmuhle in the German Cup round 2. Die Werderaner are desperate to give fans some cheer following the embarrassing defeat and we predict that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Wednesday’s football match. Weiche Flensburg, on the other hand, kicked off their DFB Pokal campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bochum, but Werder are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Regionalliga side than their previous rivals. The visitors want this win more than the hosts and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Bundesliga side. A man to watch in the away team will be Japanese attacker Osako, who found the net in the defeat to Bayer at the weekend.
