Our prediction for this DFB Pokal match:
A spot in the German Cup last 16 will be at stake when Werder Bremen and Heidenheim take on each other at wohninvest WESERSTADION on Wednesday evening. Die Werderaner kicked off their DFB Pokal campaign with a 6-1 win over Atlas Delmenhorst, and they are seen as favourites to win the upcoming clash against Heidenheim as well.
Werder Bremen are on a five-game winless run in the national championship, and that is the main reason why we predict they will fight tooth and nail in Wednesday’s football match. The 2. Bundesliga side did well to beat Ulm 2-0 on the road in the opening match of their German Cup campaign, but they will have a big fish to fry in the wohninvest WESERSTADION clash. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Kosovo international Milot Rashica, who has netted three goals in the German elite division so far this term.
Highlighted Player (Michael Lang):
Standing tall at 1.85 m, Michael Lang is a Swiss international defender who has gone through all ranks of the Switzerland national team to earn his senior call-up in 2013. Michael Jang began his professional career playing for FC St. Gallen where he spent five years before he moved to Grasshopper. During his four-year spell with the club he racked up 127 league appearances and scored 12 goals.
In 2015 Lang joined FC Basel on a free transfer, for whom he scored his first goal against the old club Grasshoppers only a week after his arrival. Michael Lang made 22 Swiss Super League appearance during the title winning season 2015-16, making an important contribution to his club’s 19th championship title in history.
During that time the 25-year-old Swiss international also managed to bag five goals for his club, which is regarded as a considerable tally for a defender. Having gone into the new season with two goals to his name already, Lang is expected to play a significant part in his team’s UEFA Champions League challenge.
