The quarterfinals of the DFB Pokal are scheduled for midweek. Leader in the Bundesliga Bayern Munich takes on the leader of the 3. Liga, SC Paderborn.
SC Paderborn may, despite being a small club, ring a bell with the football follower. This is due to the season that Paderborn spent in the Bundesliga. In the 2014/2015 football year, SCP played at the highest level. It was not a success, the 31 earned points were only good for one last place. Degradation was a fact, and a year later the team also flew from the 2. Bundesliga. Last year it almost went wrong again, but it was hard to maintain.
This year Paderborn is on the rise again. The club is the current list-leader in the 3. Liga, and the lead on the other teams is so big that it must be strange if the team does not want to promote. The success in the league does not stand alone, because the team is doing fine in the cup. On the way to this quarter final, teams from the second league were already dealt with, such as VfL Bochum and FC Ingolstadt. Bayern becomes the first opponent from the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich :
Bayern Munich continues to string the victories together. Saturday, Der FCB won again, this time visiting the flyer Mainz 05. Jupp Heynckes chose to give some basic powers rest. So Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben were allowed to start on the bench. It had no influence on the result (0-2). Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez scored well before the break, after which Bayern switched back a little in the second half. It was already the tenth victory in a row in official matches for the Munich team.
Most likely, the eleventh in the series will be added in Paderborn on Tuesday-evening. Heynckes can return the players who were saved on Saturday to the base. Kingsley Coman thus also becomes a candidate for the basic eleven. Arturo Vidal still can not be used, while behind the name of Javi Martinez is a question mark. The setup is therefore far from certain.
Insider TIP: Under 4.5 goals – 1.45
