Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
Verl will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Tus Haltern when they take on Holstein Kiel at SPORTCLUB Arena in the German Cup last 32. Verl did well to beat Augsburg in their DFB Pokal opener, and they now aim to claim yet another major scalp in the prestigious competition. The Regionalliga have been producing scintillating showings in the first half of the season, and, as a result, they are leading the chase for automatic promotion to the 2. Bundesliga.
Holstein Kiel, on the other hand, proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Stuttgart and Bochum in previous two league fixtures, but since the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Guerino Capretti’s charges. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Aygun Yildirim, who has netted nine goals in the Regionalliga so far this season.
