Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December

Recommended Posts

20th Dec Düsseldorf-Dortmund over 2.5 goals @ 1,81 Pinnacle I think we have a good combination here: Dortmund will field the best possible starting line-up. But they're quite injury-plagued. Götze is out, they were quite impressive without him at Freiburg (4-1) though. They'll miss two centre backs and therefore field Owomoyela in the centre (I only know him as a full-back), and there's a question mark behind full-back Schmelzer as well. The absence of CM Bender is another point. All in all they'll possibly lack order in some situations but should always be an offensive threat, even without Götze (atm they rely more on Lewandowski than on Götze). Düsseldorf are 1st in the 2.BL and will party against the reigning German champion, next league game is in February, so they can just completely enjoy it and go for it. In recent games they actually struggled a bit, with only 2 wins in the last 5 games and the first home defeat in 15 months. If that means that they'll defend sloppily, I'm fine with it. Their offense wasn't really the problem, they have players with high individual quality, Rösler has BL experience, and Dortmund are already in the race for Beister who should be extra motivated for this game. I wouldn't be surprised if Dortmund can't keep a clean sheet, especially of course with their injury problems. But in the end it's still a game between one of the best two teams in Germany and a 2nd division team, odds should be around 1.6-1.65 imho. It's the last game of the year for both teams and the cup has a high reputation in Germany. I think we'll see a lot of energy on the pitch and hopefully some goals.

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December Sport Football (Germany) Event Bochum - Bayern Selection Over 1.5(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price 188bet @ 2.30 Reasoning The same story like in match Dusseldord-Borussia. Bayern take seriously this cup and for sure go for the big win against poor Bochum. Bayern have top players in squad and for example Gomez can be too strong for Bochum defenders. For Bochum this is big match, possible the biggest of this season and players are very motivated to score goals against big team from Munich. Sport Football (Germany) Event Dusseldorf - Dortmund Selection Over 1.5(Half Time) Strength 10/10 Date 20/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price William Hill @ 2.75 Reasoning Dortmund is in fantastic form, especially Lewandowski at the front. Borussia for sure can score two goals in half time, with players like Kagawa, Gotze or Lewandowski. Germany teams always take seriously this cup. Dusseldorf is team who play always very open football, not think about defense too much and for sure is very motivated to beat strong Borussia. I see huge value in this odds.

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December

Sport Football (Germany)
Event Hoffenheim - Augsburg
Selection Hoffenheim -1.5 (Asian-handicap)
Strength 10/10
Date 20/12/2011
Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 2.68
Reasoning In this third round game for the German Cup Hoffenheim hosts Augsburg and in my opionion the home win in this game is the best choice. Hoffenheim is in the top half in the Bundesliga table, but in my opinon the team will not have the chance to fight for the places that gives a place in Europe next season, because there are five or even six teams that are just at least one step ahead of them. So in this case Hoffenheim will finish somewhere in the middle of the table and their only chance to fight for Europe is to make something in the cup. The draw for now is quite good for the team and with win tonight and a little luck in the next rounds (avoiding Bayern and Dortmund) they can make it at least to the semifinals. Hoffenheim have only one defeat at home so far this season (3-4-1). Augsburg will for sure be fighting for their place in the Bundesliga next season until the end of the campaign. The team is currently in the relegation zone and it will be really tough for them to move up in the table. The cup will just make it even tougher for Augsburg if they manage to get to the next round. The team will and should be really focused mostly in the games for the league and today I don't think that they will put their best squad.

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December Fortuna vs Dortmund Both teams are playing excellent football in their Leagues and are scoring many goals. Home side is really powerful at home, and this game will be a like a measuring of forces in the promotion perspective that they have for next year. The price is excellent for this bet and I will take it quickly. Fortuna scored 43 goals this season and conceded 20. at home they came up with 25 goals cored and 11 conceded. Dortmund scored 35 and conceded 12. They managed to score 12 goals away and conceded 7. I expect both teams to score as they are having great attacking players. both teams to score? yes @ 1.83 with Gamebookers

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December 2 Picks for 21st December, 20:30 http://lookandwin.blogabet.com/ Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. Schalke 04 Pick: Mönchengladbach Odds: 2.75 Bookmaker: bwin Stake: 6/10 Pick: Over 2.5 Odds: 1.97 Bookmaker: pinnacle Stake: 3/10 Gladbach won over Mainz yesterday with 1-0, Reus came back and will start on Wednesday like goalkeeper Ter Stegen. Gladbach has strong defensive and create great combinations by Arango, Reus, Herrmann and Hanke. They are well organized, lost not even one match at home so far (6-3-0). Schalke smashed Werder last Saturday, won three in a row in Bundesliga and won the cup last year. Nevertheless Schalke still has problems in defensive, central defender Matip is a weak point and they often let space for counter attacks. Midfielder Holtby is doubtful, coach Stevens maybe stay at home because of his mother. Schalke has great quality in offensive and good wing defenders, but their gameplay often changes in away matches. They got nice results (4-1-3), but normally they can’t keep up with Galdbach away from home. In August, Schalke won Bundesliga clash with 1-0 at home. Both teams improved a lot since then, but circumstances are totally different in Gladbach. Gladbach will play for a win and they will get goal chances against weak defensive of Schalke for sure. Bookmakers trust too much in Schalke’s latest perfromances, but they didn’t play against a well organized team like Gladbach. Odds for Over 2.5 are a gift also: Both teams will play for a win, both teams are always able to score.

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December Fortuna - BVB Wouldnt touch it, but saw the predicted lineup, which is strong for BVB with Lewandovski, Kagawa, Hummels, Pizscek... so very strong lineup for them, which might be the consequence of winter break and no games on weekend. Also Low said "Cup should be our competition", which do means that they are taking it seriusly. Fortuna leading team in Die Zweite, but still, BVB on their day, on par with top Europena teams, with likeable stlye of play and i reckon they will pressure Fortuna from minute one. Win should not be in question, and with mentioned style when BVB keeps going for goals despite leading, two goal win should be on hand. BVB -1 @ 2.01 sbo

Re: Germany - DFB Pokal - 20-21 December Sport Football (Germany) Event Stuttgart - HSV Selection Over 2.5 Strength 10/10 Date 21/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.93 Reasoning For both teams Germany Cup is big chance for the European Cups, both teams are very motivated. Stuttgart not play the best season, but have good offense players and like always at home is very dangerous team. Offensive game style and want score goals for supporters. HSV after bad start of the season, not have too much chances for Europa from league table, b ut when Fink take this team, HSV play one class better and is really focused on this match. Open match with more than two goals. Sport Football (Germany) Event Kiel - Mainz Selection Over 2.5 Strength 10/10 Date 21/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.99 Reasoning I think about +1 asian handicap for the Kiel, but Over 2.5 is more possible result. Kiel is team from the lower league, but every year in this Cup team from lower leagues making suprises. Kiel at home have 9-1-0 balance. Amazing. For sure players want take win here, I can't image defense game style. Mainz in last time improve form, play better than in start of the season. Mainz is favourite and want play next time in Europa League, like in this season. Over 2.5, odds are too high in Pinnacle. Sport Football (Germany) Event Gladbach - Schalke Selection Over 2.5 Strength 10/10 Date 21/12/2011 Bookmaker/Price Pinnacle Sports @ 1.97 Reasoning Over is the best option for this match, odds are on the very good level to play. Gladbach is the biggest suprise of this season and for sure want make long run in Germany Cup, big chance for the Europa. Gladbach at home is very dangerous team for the everyone in Germany. Schalke is title defender from last year and is in very hot form, 5-0 win against Werder Bremen, hattrick from Raul Gonzalez. Both teams want take next round, both teams with good offense players. Over is logical choice.
