Borussia Dortmund to Win
Der BVB are in line for their tenth DFB Pokal final appearance as Edin Terzc beckons on finishing the 2020/21 campaign with a trophy to show for. With Bayern Munich already out, Borussia Dortmund would fancy their chances in the competition. However, they will have to overcome the challenge of pricky 2. Bundesliga outfit, Holstein Kiel, who continue to punch above their waist in the competition. Kiel's recent form has been patchy, especially on the road while Dortmund are on a three-match winning run.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Dortmund have averaged 3.5 goals per game through out the course of the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign. A division down, Kiel have forged their identity of being hard to run over and average 2.5 goals per game. While the hosts have been involved in 22 games with three goals or more, the visitors have kept it to a league low of 12 fixtures. With Dortmund likely to dominate proceedings, a goal bonanza at the expense of their rivals is expected.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
Eden Terzic's men have kept two back-to-back clean sheets in the Bundesliga, bringing an end to their six match conceding run. In the same eight-match period, Kiel have only been shutout once and have troubled their rivals. The fact thaat Kiel are eighth highest scorers in 2. Bundesliga does not inspire confidence but with domesitc cup honours on the line, they will be shedding their stoic costumes for a more adventurous time on the pitch.
Dortmund vs Holstein Kiel: Team News and Match Preview
The last time Der BVB took on the challenge of Holstein Kiel, they would go on the finish the campaign with a historic double. Eden Terzic was still plying his trade on the pitch when Jurgen Klopp's men swatted away their challenge with a 4-0 drubbing. Terzic will be well aware that this is not the same squad as that of Klopp's and Kiel are no pushovers. However, he will be relatively relaxed with Erling Haaland scoring four goals in his last three outings. The return to full fitness of Jadon Sancho will also have boosted his morale.
With DFB Pokal commitments piling up, Holstein Kiel have seen their league form wither away. However, the Storks have a shot at the 2. Bundesliga title and Pokal history. In their run to the semi-finals they ended Bayern Munich's domestic cup ambitions and followed it with a scalp of ‘giant killers’ Rot-Weiss Essen. To top it off, they can make it to the final of the Pokal for the first time in their history. Ole Werner has managed this with a stubborn defensive unit and an attacking outlet that gets the job done. To get over the line, topscorers Janni-Luca Serra and Alexander Muhling will have to deliver the goods.
