Competition: DFP Pokal

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/7 @ 1xBet

Two second-tier outfits that are looking to punch a DFP Pokal semi-final ticket on Wednesday night, Hertha Berlin will welcome Kaiserslautern to the Olympiastadion.

Starting with the hosts, enduring a Bundesliga nightmare last season as they lost their top-flight status with a whimper, Hertha Berlin have once again shown some extended issues this time around. Putting in a flat performance last weekend as they slumped to a routine 3-1 defeat away at Wehen, Pal Dardai’s men are seeking a real miracle in their bid to snatch an immediate Bundesliga return in 2024. Marking their return from Germany’s festive break with an action-packed 2-2 stalemate against Dusseldorf, the one-time Hungary boss will also have a mounting headache over his side’s continued struggles at the back. Along with shipping five goals in their back-to-back appearances since opening the New Year, Hertha have recorded just a single clean sheet from any of their last eight domestic appearances across all competitions – a run that stems back to November 5th. It should also be highlighted, seven of those eight showdowns have finished with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, managing to make what was a crucial return to winning ways last weekend as they stormed their way to a shock 4-1 romp against Schalke, Kaiserslautern will be desperate to use that performance as a platform to build on. Still at the heart of a second-tier relegation scrap and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, Dimitrios Grammozis’ men have lost seven of their previous nine appearances across all competitions. With that extended wobble stemming all the way back to a 3-2 DFP Pokal victory against Koln on October 31st, the Red Devils have gained a reputation for their glaring issues on the road. Including a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Magdeburg last month, Kaiserslautern have lost all of their last five showdowns away from the Fritz-Walter-Stadion by an aggregate score of 14-6. In a contest that could see chances come thick and fast, we are backing both teams to get on the scoresheet here.
