THE TEAM NEWS

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have won four of their last five home games in all competitions and have only lost one of their last five DFB-Pokal ties at the Commerzbank-Arena.
  • Coach Hutter has rotated a lot in recent weeks so there are likely to be changes from the side that started in last Friday’s rearranged Europa League match at Salzburg.
  • Gacinovic and Abraham should shake off knocks in time but Fernandes, Dost and Russ remain sidelined.

WERDER BREMEN

  • The cup has provided some light relief from Werder Bremen’s struggles in the league this season, with Kohfeldt’s side losing nine of their last 10 Bundesliga games.
  • On-loan defender Vogt has made a quicker-than-expected recovery but the game will come too soon for Bargfrede and Bartels.
  • Maximilian Eggestein is set to return to the side having missed the last league game through suspension, while top scorer Rashica will be aiming to continue his record of scoring in each round of this season’s competition.

THE PREDICTION

These two teams were due to play each other in the league on Sunday but the game was postponed. They will therefore be fresh and raring to go for this meeting and given that Bremen have the leakiest defence in the Bundesliga and Frankfurt have scored two or more goals in 12 of their last 14 home games, this is shaping up to be an entertaining affair.
