German Cup quarter-finals will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of March
RB Leipzig will meet Wolfsburg, Dortmund will visit Gladbach in top ties
Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen are already out from the competition
In the biggest game of the 2020-21 German Cup quarter-finals Borussia Monchengladbach will meet Borussia Dortmund. The Borussen derby is promised to be an exciting tie with both teams being a top favorite to win the tournament. While another top team, RB Leipzig are predicted to go through against Wolfsburg in the German Cup quarter-finals betting predictions.
There is no Bayern Munich in the 2020-21 German Cup quarter-finals after the defending champions were knocked out in the second round by Holstein Kiel. The second-tier team won their game on penalties after a 2-2 draw in extra time. They have also defeated Darmstadt in the last 16 and will face Rot-Weiss Essen now. The dropout of Bayern offers a great chance now for the other remaining top teams, who will face each other in the quarter-finals. RB Leipzig will host Vfl Wolfsburg, while Dortmund will visit Monchengladbach on the 2nd and 3rd of March. In the fourth game another team from the second division, Jahn Regensburg will play against Werder Bremen.
German Cup quarter-finals betting predictions favor RB Leipzig against Wolfsburg
The top favorite to win this season’s DFB-Pokal, RB Leipzig have the odds of 1.696 to win their quarter-final against Vfl Wolfsburg. Julian Nagelsman’s team has been performing well again this season in all competitions. They are currently in 2nd place in the Bundesliga and got through confidently from each round in this year’s cup. They defeated Vfl Bochum 4-0 at home in the previous round with the goals of Haidara, Sabitzer and Poulsen. Who is also the top goalscorer of the tournament so far.
But Leipzig won’t have an easy job against Wolfsburg who follow them closely in the league in 3rd place. The two teams played a 2-2 draw in their last meeting this January. But online sportsbooks in Germany offer the odds of 3.96 for a similar result. Surely both teams will try to decide the winner in the normal 90 minutes and avoid extra time in the already busy schedule. The guests also scored 4 goals in the first two rounds of the cup, but struggled against Schalke in the last 16. They won the game 1-0 at the end but had to perform better in the Red Bull Arena if they want to go through.
Who will win the Borussen derby?
The top tie of the quarter-finals will be the clash of the two Borussen teams, Monchengladbach and Dortmund. They met each other in last year’s cup as well with Dortmund winning that game 2-1 with the brace of Julian Brandt. But Gladbach took revenge with a 4-2 win in the Bundesliga in their last meeting two weeks ago. Now both teams will try to get the win and make an important step to get the trophy. Online gambling sites in Germany offer almost the same odds for both team’s win in their German Cup quarter-finals betting predictions.
Dortmund are slightly favored with the odds of 2.315 to win the game. Even though the team has been struggling recently. Their head coach, Lucien Favre was sacked at the end of last year. His assistant coach, Edin Terzic has been appointed as an interim manager until the end of the season. But according to the latest gossip, the club would like to sign Gladbach’s current manager, Marco Rose. Which makes this tie even more interesting. For now though Foals fans hope for another great performance from their team who knocked out Vfb Stuttgart with a 2-1 win in the previous round. Their odds to win against Dortmund as well is 2.765.
Holstein and Werder can win in the other two games
The remaining two teams from lower leagues, fourth division side Rot Weiss Essen and second-tier Holstein Kiel will meet each other in the third quarter-final. Both of them have already produced a miraculous victory in this year’s tournament. As Kiel knocked out Bayern Munich in the second round, while Essen defeated Bayer Leverkusen in the previous round. Now Kiel have a better chance of winning with the odds of 1.955 but they shouldn’t underestimate their opponent. Who will have the advantage of the home ground to produce another superb result. Their odds to reach the semi-final is 2.53 on 22Bet.
In the fourth match Werder Bremen will visit the home of second-tier Jahn Regensburg. The Bundesliga side who is currently in 11th place in the table is favored to win the game. The Green Whites have been playing confidently in the cup against Jena, Hannover 96 and Greuther Furth. With all teams being from the lower leagues. While their opponents, Regensburg have knocked out 1. FC Kaiserslautern, SV Wehen Wiesbaden and Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln on penalties. Now their odds to continue their great run and go through is 2.30.
