MSV Duisburg vs Borussia Dortmund
Germany – DFB Pokal
Date: Monday, 14 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena (Duisburg).
It will be interesting to see how the 3 Liga Bundesliga contenders can hold against one of the top teams from the top tier Bundesliga fixtures. Despite having a ground advantage, which will stand no chance against Lucien Favre’s rampage, the host will need miracles to move forward in the Pokal Cup.
The three-game unbeaten run in the 3 Liga will be the record that the host is bringing into the tournament this season. The Zebras shouldn’t be fooled by the 0-4 loss at home for Borussia against Hoffenheim in the last Bundesliga clash.

MSV Duisburg vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair at Duisburg. In the last season of 3. Liga fixtures, MSV has conceded an average of 1.3 goals in 38 appearances. Now that they are facing a Bundesliga team, it is likely to go over 2.5 goals in the match with their form.
Borussia Dortmund will look for an easy win, but it is not likely that Favre’s boys would hold back their game as the Bundesliga is set to start this month. So, the Pokal Cup will be a useful training prior to the new campaign in their schedule.
With their strong squad and admirable form even outside the German football, Der BVB will be all upon the home team in the clash. The tip for the away team to win both halves of the game will probably be the ideal bet to yield decent returns.
