German DFB Pokal Quarterfinal: Bayern Munich vs SchalkePublished March 1, 2017 by Sol FH
An all-important quarterfinal match in the German Cup tonight at 19:45 at Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich have been doing well lately and are crushing all teams that enter Allianz. Take last week for example, Bayern destroyed Hamburger SV 8-0 in which scorers Vidal, Lewandowski (hat-trick), Alaba, Coman and Robben were way too much to handle. A week prior to that in the Champions League, they sent Arsenal back to England after a 5-1 thrashing. There does not seem to be anything that can stop this team when they are at home.
Schalke does not have much of a chance against the Bundesliga leaders, but they have been one of the only teams in Germany to hold Bayern to a draw at Allianz, which happened on February 4th after a 1-1- tie. Now, towards the end of the regular season, Carlo Ancelotti has a lot of thinking, as to which players he will sit and which he will play, to ensure he completes a successful challenge of their league title.
Bayern and Schalke is the most important match DFB Pokal Quarterfinals. The other three matches feature Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Arminia Bielefeld, Hamburg vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach, and Sportfreunde Lotte vs. Borussia Dortmund.
Not much hope for Schalke tonight, as Bayern is on a scoring tear. Expect a high scoring match yet again with Bayern ultimately winning 3-0.
Now for punters seeking to make a wager on tonight's match there are a few betting markets that look too good to pass up on. Bayern are obviously favorites at 1.18, but a draw is 6.50 and if Schalke were ever able to pull out the miracle win, bettors would get 15.00 for their troubles. Bet365 will be offering live in play bets throughout the match, which is an excellent way to leverage bets to another level.
It should be an incredible match and with a trip to the semifinals on the line, both teams will be firing on full.
