Date: 24th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: OPEL ARENA (Mainz).
Holstein Kiel have had an excellent start in the higher division football well confounding the expectations in the opening 11 rounds in 2. Bundesliga.
Can they keep the fantastic form going and make an upset against a top tier opposition in Tuesday’s DFB Pokal action at OPEL ARENA?
The 0-Fives have been playing hot and cold so far in the season. They had a fine run of two wins and a draw prior to falling to Schalke 04 in the first of the Matchday No 9 in Bundesliga on Friday evening (2-0).
Mainz did not have any troubles easing past a Regionalliga opposition LSK Hansa in the first round of the cup competition in mid-August when Yuki Muto bagged a brace in a 1-3 win.
The Storks kept ground on 2. Bundesliga leaders Fortuna Dusseldorf with an important 2-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday.
It was the fourth win on the trot for Markus Anfang and his men who bagged an impressive tally of 13 goals along the way.
Marvin Duksch has been the most lethal of the weapons up front taking his tally to nine on Saturday when he contributed to the win over Arminia with a goal.
