St. Pauli vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
The host has been performing well in the second division games so far. Evidently, they have lost only two of the last seven home matches against fellow second division teams. Meanwhile, the away side has lost four of the previous eight away fixtures in the major competitions.
Besides that, the teams have met six times since 2002. In all the six h2h clashes, the visiting side has dominated with three wins and a single loss on the road. Even so, the traveling contingent has recorded an away win against Kiezkicker in their h2h encounters.
Even though their previous encounter was in favor of the host, it was held 8 years ago. So, the stakes have changed as the Eagles have flown up to the upper-tier league. Based on their h2h clash history, the visiting side has more chance of advancing to the next round of the DFB Pokal.
Even so, we can expect the host to put up a fight in the middle. Also, there is a probability for a high scoring affair in the ninety minutes of the game.
Having already admitted defeat back in the first division last week, Hertha Berlin will be looking to bounce back to winning ways this Wednesday as they welcome an off-color Dynamo Dresden.
Hertha Berlin vs Dynamo Dresden Head to head (h2h)
- The two sides have previously met each other twice before, the last of which ended in a 1-0 victory for Dynamo Dresden.
- Their only other meeting saw Hertha Berlin register a 1-0 victory.
Hertha Berlin vs Dynamo Dresden Prediction
The hosts had their four-match unbeaten run in the top flight brought to an abrupt halt at home after Hoffenheim did just enough to post a 3-2 scoreline. Be that as it may, the home side are on solid form at the moment, and have been at the losing end just twice in their last six games.
On the other hand, Dynamo Dresden have been recording back to back losses in their past four games in the 2.Bundesliga. Their previous clash at home saw them lose 1-0 to Arminia Bielefeld while on the road they conceded two unanswered goals against Greuther Furth.
The away side are certainly struggling to get things going for them and have just one win to boast of from their last six outings in all competitions. Furthermore, their opponents in this one are part of a far more competitive domestic campaign and are likely to be too hot to handle for the struggling second-tier Dynamo Dresden side.
With home advantage also at their aid, Hertha Berlin are the favorites to win and progress to the next round.
Additionally, the visitors have been leaky at the back and have conceded two goals or more in each of their last three trips on the road. Meanwhile, the hosts have been keen on racking up their tally and have scored seven goals from their previous three games here. Hence, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair this week.
