What Is The DFB-Pokal?
Widely considered the second most important trophy in German football, the DFB-Pokal is the equivalent of England’s FA Cup. Founded some time before the establishment of the Bundesliga, Germany’s top clubs have been competing for the DFB-Pokal since 1935.
With 64 teams entering the competition and the offer of Europa League football to the winner, everybody is in this tournament to win it.
Bayern Munich are the most successful club in DFB-Pokal history with 18 titles and plenty of punters will fancy the Bavarians to go on and claim a 19th in 2018/19. Bayern have appeared in the final 22 times, losing only four of those – an excellent record to say the least.
The second most successful team in this competition is Werder Bremen. With six DFB-Pokal victories, Bremen stand as Bayern’s closest rivals in this particular tournament. Schalke 04 and 2017/18 winners Eintracht Frankfurt come next with four wins apiece.
DFB-Pokal Betting 2017/18 Results
In an incredible turn of events, Eintracht Frankfurt defeated the great Bayern Munich 3-1 in the 2017/18 final. The Bavarians were clear favourites to lift the trophy for a record 19th time but Eintracht defied the odds to give their supporters a memorable success.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach both crashed out at the last-16 stage of the competition. These two clubs were well fancied to challenge for the DFB-Pokal crown but fell short against Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.
Bayern Munich have started slowly in the 2018/19 Bundesliga campaign but the Bavarians are still the team to beat when it comes to the DFB-Pokal.
Their record in the competition is excellent and punters will be wary of backing against Bayern. 7/5 in 888sport DFB-Pokal odds represents solid value for the German giants to claim a 19th triumph.
Meanwhile, the 7/4 available for Schalke 04 to reach the semi-finals is another option to consider.
Schalke were ‘best of the rest’ behind Bayern Munich in the 2017/18 Bundesliga table and they could go deep into the latter stages with a bit of luck. They were fortunate to get past FC Koln in the second round but that scare may spur Schalke on in the later rounds.
