In the first round of the competition Arminia visited the capital Berlin, facing Viktoria Berlin. The visitors won the game with 1-0 with Andreas Voglsammer scoring the only goal in the game after just 15 minutes of playing. The visitors’ fans probably expected a bigger win against such a weak opposition, but the most important thing was to progress in the tournament, of course.

In 11 games played in the league so far, Arminia have lost just once. In the previous round they visited Dynamo Dresdena and achieved another 1-0 win. It was once again Andreas Voglsammer who scored the winning goal.

Compared to the previous season, which was a pure disaster for Schalke 04, the team looks improved under the management of the new head coach David Wagner. Right now Schalke are 7th in the Bundesliga standings, but just one point behind the 4th Borussia M’gladbach and the Champions League zone. What’s concerning is that they are without a win in their last three league games.
In conclusion we can say that Schalke 04 are favourites against Arminia Bielefeld in this match from the second round of the DFB Pokal. We are sure that the Royal Blues want to go as far as they can in the competition.
