Bayern Munich vs Heidenheim
German DFB Pokal
Date: Wednesday, 3 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Bayern Munich dropped down to second place of the Bundesliga standings after a shocking 1-1 draw away at Freiburg on Saturday afternoon. They thus significantly complicated their push for the title, making it an imperative to claim three points next Saturday when they host BVB in the derby of the season at Allianz Arena.
In between two league ties, the Bavarians have an important DFB Pokal quarter-final on schedule. It will be interesting to see if Niko Kovac will give rest to some of his main stars given his team will play the second-division opposition on Wednesday evening. On the other side, the stakes are high as the winner will advance to the DFB Pokal semi-final. We can’t even imagine what a disaster it would be for Bayern Munich to get knocked out by a 2. Bundesliga outfit here.

This will be the first ever head to head clash between the two teams.
Bayern Munich vs Heidenheim: Prediction
Heidenheim hold 6th place in the second division standings after 27 rounds. They still dream to catch promotional play-offs in seven remaining outings, but team’s most recent does not quite promise big successes until the end of the campaign.
Frank Schmidt’s men won only one of past six league matches. They found goals hard to come by of late. Heidenheim failed to find the back of the net in three of last five 2. Bundesliga outings. The streak includes weekend’s disappointing goalless draw away at relegation strugglers Magdeburg.
Overall, Heidenheim scored no more than 17 goals in 14 away matches so far in the season in their respective division. They are up against one of the strongest outfits in the country and it’s really hard to imagine their boom in the final third here.
Bayern’s clean sheet is paid at 1.66 odds, while we will alternatively go with the Under 4.5 goals FT at 1.66 knowing the hosts should not push hard either with the fixture against Borussia Dortmund upcoming at the weekend.
