Bayern Munich hosts Heidenheim
The German champion Bayern Munich hosts Heidenheim in a match from the 1/4-finals of the DFB Pokal. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Allianz Arena in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Bayern Munich reached the 1/4-finals of the competition after a win against Hertha BSC in the previous round. The Bavarians needed an extra time to win the game in Berlin with 3-2. Serge Gnabry scored a brace for Niko Kovac’ team, while Kingsley Coman scored the crucial third goal during the extra time.
Bayern are motivated to win the competition after the final they lost against Eintracht Frankfurt last year. The ironic thing is that Bayern’s current coach Niko Kovac was leading Eintracht then. Now the Croatian manager will try to win the cup for a second consecutive year.
In the Bundesliga Bayern Munich are currently 2nd in the standings, trailing on two points behind the leader Borussia Dortmund.
Meanwhile Heidenheim did a serious surprise in the previous round, eliminating Bayer Leverkusen with a 2-1 win at home. Julian Brandt opened the score for Leverkusen, but the home side turned the game around with goals from Nikola Dovedan and Maurice Multhaup.
Right now Heidenheim are participating in the 2. Bundesliga. They are currently 6th in the standings with 43 points and a record of 11 wins, 10 draws and 6 defeats. In their last five games Heidenheim won only once, made two draws and suffered two losses.
In their last 2. Bundesliga game Heidenheim made a 0-0 draw during the visit to Magdeburg away from home.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the DFB Pokal 1/4-fnals clash between Bayern Munich and Heidenheim at the Allianz Arena in the Bavarian capital. The home side is the huge favourite here, but there are always some surprises happening in this competition.
