Darmstadt too strong for lower league opponents

OddsHomburg 13/2, Draw 15/4, Darmstadt 2/5

Darmstadt secured promotion back to the Bundesliga last season, but their celebrations were dampened slightly as they lost three of their final four matches to be pipped to the second-tier title by Heidenheim.

An underwhelming pre-season campaign may have also lowered expectations somewhat, but Torsten Lieberknecht's side should have too much for fourth-tier Homburg and they could wrap up a big victory.

Bundesliga teams have already recorded sizable wins against lower league opponents in this season's Pokal, with Borussia Monchengladbach scoring seven in their tie and Bayer Leverkusen eight, while second tier Nurnberg recorded nine on the road at Oberneuland.

While Darmstadt may not quite match those tallies, they will expect to win comfortably and are available at 7/4 to triumph with over 3.5 goals in the match.

Hoffenheim to edge entertaining contest

WhatVfb Lubeck v Hoffenheim
WhereStadion Lohmuhle, Lubeck
When17:00, Monday 14th August
How to watchbet365 Sports Live Streaming
OddsVfb Lubeck 6/1, Draw 15/4, Hoffenheim 2/5

Hoffenheim will expect to avoid a cup upset when they visit the Stadion an der Lohmuhle, but they may not have it all their own way against a Vfb Lubeck side that earned promotion to the 3. Liga last season.

Lubeck have scored in 21 of their last 22 competitive games and will fancy their chances of registering against a Hoffenheim side that only won three times on the road in the Bundesliga last season.

However, Hoffenheim's top-flight quality should shine through and there is value to be had in the 6/4 about the visitors to win with both teams scoring, especially as they have scored in each of their last 11 DFB Pokal matches, but have only kept two clean sheets over the same period.

Cologne could come unstuck at Osnabruck

WhatOsnabruck v Cologne
WhereStadion an der Bremer Brucke, Osnabruck
When17:00, Monday 14th August
How to watchbet365 Sports Live Streaming
OddsOsnabruck 10/3, Draw 16/5, Cologne 7/10

Osnabruck celebrated promotion to Bundesliga 2 last season and they have already played two matches in the second tier, following up a narrow 3-2 home defeat to Karlsruhe with a credible 1-1 draw at Paderborn.

The hosts should be slightly more fine-tuned than top-tier opponents Cologne, who will be playing their first competitive match of the season and they also have recent memories of losing to lower league opposition in this competition.

In last season's DFB Pokal first round the Billy Goats were beaten on penalties by Jahn Regensburg, who were relegated from Bundesliga 2 last term, while their last four exits from the competition have come against sides from outside the top tier.

That record will give Osnabruck encouragement, with the hosts representing decent value in the Double Chance market, as they are 11/10 to force the game into extra time at the very least.

Magdeburg to win lower league tussle

WhatJahn Regensburg v Magdeburg
WhereJahnstadion Regensburg, Regensburg
When17:00, Monday 14th August
How to watchbet365 Sports Live Streaming
OddsJahn Regensburg 7/2, Draw 14/5, Magdeburg 4/5

The one DFB Pokal tie on Monday not featuring a side from the Bundesliga will be Jahn Regensburg's clash with Magdeburg at the Jahnstadion Regensburg.

As mentioned, Jahn beat Cologne in last season's first round, but they were then convincingly knocked out by Fortuna Dusseldorf and their season ultimately ended in relegation from Bundesliga 2.

Magdeburg had no such worries, finishing last season 11th in the second tier and taking four points of Jahn in the process, although they have failed to win on any of their last three away visits to the team from Regensburg.

However, Jahn have only won one of their nine competitive matches on home soil in 2023 and, with Magdeburg having taken four points from their opening two league matches of the new season, the visitors may be the value option to win the match at 4/5 in the Full Time Result market.
