Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
All eyes will be on Millerntor-Stadion when former Bundesliga side St. Pauli take on Europa League semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 32 of the DFB Pokal. The Kiezkicker head into Wednesday’s football match following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Darmstadt and Heidenheim, whilst die Adler want to give fans some cheer after suffering a 4-2 loss to Borussia M’gladbach in the German top flight.
Eintracht Frankfurt have slim chances of winning the Bundesliga trophy, meaning that they surely want to go all the way in the German Cup. The Bundesliga outfit aim to take advantage of the fact that St. Pauli suffered a dip in form, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the away team will be Goncalo Paciencia, who has netted eight goals in all competitions so far this season.
