Saarbrucken vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Germany- DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 3 March 2020
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Hermann-Neuberger-Stadion (Völklingen)
The hosts are a surprise entry to the quarters this season. They have proven their worth beating Bundesliga teams like FC Koln.
Saarbrucken is leading the Regionalliga Sudwest and has a 6 point lead over their closest rivals. Their major strength is an attacking force that has netted 52 goals from 22 matches in the league. They have copied that scoring form in the Cup also as we saw in the last 3 rounds. The hosts scored 7 goals in their 3 recent cup games and are expected to get goals on Tuesday too.
Dusseldorf is unbeaten in their 3 recent away matches. They have work on their defense as they have conceded in all their Cup matches so far. Against an attacking team like Saarbrucken, this may hurt them real bad.
Both these sides play open attacking football, so we can expect an entertaining game with goals.

Saarbrucken vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Prediction
There is a big difference in terms of the opposition these teams had all season. The hosts are playing in the fourth tear of German football, while the visitors have experience against the country’s biggest clubs.
The home team are on top of their league table and have scored plenty this season. But their highlight was Cup wins against Regensburg and FC Koln. The visitors are in the relegation zone in Bundesliga but have faced tougher opposition than their rivals. So I am backing a narrow win for the away side with both sides netting goals.
