The reigning Bundesliga holders and the Zweite Bundesliga outfit go head-to-head for the DFB Pokal quarter-finals as Bayern Munich welcome Heidenheim to the Allianz Arena.
The hosts go into this fixture off the back of a frustrating 1-1 road draw with Freiburg that has made their job of defending the league title a lot more difficult. Still, the Bavarians are unbeaten in all nine of their previous home games in domestic competitions (W7, D2), with all seven of their triumphs in that period arriving in the last seven outings. What’s more, Robert Lewandowski and Co. have bagged 3+ match goals in four of their previous five home clashes in Germany while conceding just two goals in the process. Hertha Berlin was the only top-flight team Niko Kovac’s players had to go past to reach the Cup quarter-finals, as lower-league sides Drochtersen/Assel and Rodinghausen failed to trouble the Bundesliga giants.
On the other hand, the visitors are not exactly enjoying a purple patch of form having pulled off just one win in their last six competitive meetings (W1, D3, L2). Heidenheim’s immense problems in the final third have seen them struggled to find the back of the net on all three of their previous road trips, with two of those games ending with the same 0-0 scoreline. However, before the unprolific spell, 12 straight 1. Fußballclub’s away clashes have produced goals on both ends, with seven of them ending with three or more goals. Interestingly, Frank Schmidt’s men have trashed Bayer Leverkusen in the previous round of DFB Pokal, clinching a shock 2-1 home win over Bundesliga heavyweights.
