Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Donaustadion will host Tuesday’s football game between Ulm and Fortuna Dusseldorf. Ulm kicked off their German Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt and they are now determined to claim yet another major scalp in the prestigious cup competition. Ulm have been impressive at home ground in the Regionalliga this season, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Fortuna Dusseldorf. The Bundesliga side, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding 10 goals in back-to-back losses to Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg. Fortuna Dusseldorf are eager to get back on course, but seeing that the Regionalliga side are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on the underdogs this time out. In their last meeting at Donaustadion Ulm defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf 4-2.
