Energie Cottbus hosts Bayern Munich

Energie Cottbus hosts Bayern Munich in a match from the first round of the DFB Pokal. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash at the Stadion der Freundschaft in the city of Cottbus.

At this moment Energie Cottbus are playing in the Regionalliga Nordost, being 5th in the standings after three rounds played. In these three games, Energie won two matches and suffered one defeat.

Energie’s last game was truly amazing. Claus Dieter Wollitz’ boys hosted Rot-Weiss Erfurt and enjoyed a spectacular 5-3 win. Abdulkadir Beyazit scored a brace for the home side, while Felix Brugmann did the same. Berkan Taz also added one goal for the home side.

For Bayern Munich this is just second official game since the start of the season. In their first match the champions suffered a defeat against Borussia Dortmund in the clash for the German Super Cup. Niko Kovac’ team was outperfomed at the Signal Iduna Park, losing the game with 0-2.

After the departure of club legends Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, and also Mats Hummels, Bayern are doing some major changes in the team. The two world champions Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard boosted Bayern’s defense, while the talented young striker Jann-Fiete Arp was signed from Hamburger SV. It remains to be seen if Bayern Munich will be able to sign Manchester City’s winger Leroy Sane, despite of the bad injury he recieved a week ago. There’s enough time until the transfer window closes in Germany, so we expect to see some more deals made by the champions.

Bayern Munich are the current holder of the DFB Pokal, so now Niko Kovac’ team will try to make a first step towards a successful defense of the trophy.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the DFB Pokal clash from the first round of the tournament between Energie Cottbus and Bayern Munich.
