Bayern Munich – Borussia Dortmund (DFB Pokal)

Two giants of german football are back in action at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund discussing the access to DFB Pokal quarter-finals. The Bavarians have won their last five official matches, however, they are showing lack finalization power, having won their last three matches all by the minimum margin. Dortmund, on their turn, arrive here motivated after two straight victories in the first two official games under Peter Stoger.

Bayern Munich arrive here after eliminating Chemnitzer FC and RB Leipzig in the previous qualifying rounds, and are once again on the race for what could be their 17th German Cup, having won the competition more recently in 2009/10, 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2015/16. Last season, Bayern Munich reached the semi-finals in this competition where they were eliminated by this Borussia Dortmund, who later won the competition. Jupp Heynckes’ men are living up to expectations, they are “Autumn Champions” and head into the winter break with an 11-point lead over 2nd place Schalke, are qualified to the round of 16 in the Champions League, and now are ready to fight their way to the quarter-finals in this competition.

The Bavarian Giant arrive here after 5 consecutive victories, having won 10 of their last 11 consecutive matches in all competitions and losing only once. However, in their last 3 matches, Bayern have always won by the minimum margin (1-0), a unusual record for the Bavarians. The Allianz Arena is usually their fortress , with team having won all their last 5 challenges, scoring 12 goals and conceding only 2 in the process. They will nonetheless face a difficult task here and have a lot to lose at home against revived visitors, which might led Jupp Heynckes to field a very strong XI here.

In their last 5 official matches,, Bayern Munich has a record of 5 victories. This sequence of results started with a 3-1 victory over Hamburg. This result was followed by a 3-1 win against PSG, for the Champions League, a 0-1 victory over Frankfurt, a 1-0 victory against FC Koln, and in their last match, a 0-1 win over Stuttgart. Robben, Neuer and Alcântara are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Ulreich – Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels and Alaba – Martínez – Muller, Rodríguez, Vidal and Ribéry – Lewandowski.

DFB PokalBorussia Dortmund, on their turn, arrive here after eliminating Rielasingen-Arlen and Magdeburg in the previous qualifying rounds. Dortmund have already won the DFB Pokal 4 times in their history, and are reigning champions after conquering the German Cup last year, beating Frankfurt in the final. Dortmund sacked manager Peter Bosz after a two-month spell without a win against a top-tier side.

His successor Peter Stöger brought stability to the side in his first two games in charge and made BVB defend deeper and take fewer risks in their pressing, which resulted in back-to-back Bundesliga wins. The Black and Yellows have a very talented squad, especially in their attack, and are especially dangerous in counter-attacks and in individual bids. Here, the Westphalian side will try to defend their DFB Pokal champion tittle, but will face a hard test.

In their last 5 official matches, Borussia Dortmund has a record of 2 victories, 1 draw and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 away draw against Bayer Leverkusen. This result was followed by a 3-2 defeat against Real Madrid, for the Champions League, a 1-2 defeat against Werder Bremen, a 0-2 win over Mainz, and in their last match, a 2-1 victory against Hoffenheim. Durm, Piszczek, Castro, Gotze, Reus, Rode and Philipp are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Burki – Toljan, Sokratis, Toprak and Schmelzer – Weigl – Yarmolenko, Kagawa, Guerreiro and Pulisic – Aubameyang.

Bayern Munich have won 3 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing 3 and losing the remaining 2.
