Probably the tie of the round in the DFB Pokal will see Schalke take on Borussia Mochengladbach, both teams just played last weekend in a really entertaining game which M'Gladbach won 3-1 at home. This game though will take place at the Veltins Arena and Schalke will look to bounce back from that league defeat. Schalke have struggled a little to score goals this season especially their strikers with just three goals between Di Santo, Huntelaar and Choupo-Moting. Schalke have had a good start to the Bundesliga season though with Sane and Di Santo among the most influential players in the team, Di Santo has yet to find the net in the league but has four goals in two games in the Europa League and will more than likely lead the line again tonight.
Borussia Mochengladbach had a terrible start to the season but have turned it around in recent weeks with five wins in their last five Bundesliga games and a draw at Juventus in the Champions League. M'gladbach have a really solid team and Stindl and Rafael have kickstarted the recent good run of form. Away from home Borussia Mochengladbach have been very difficult to beat and this will be another test for the team as Schalke have a very strong home record.
This is a tough game to call, I understand why Schalke are favourites in the bookmakers but personally I think Borussia Mochengladbach have been in much better form of late and having won the league game between the two at the weekend I think they will come into this game full of confidence. Always tough to go to Schalke and win but I think both teams to score looks a relatively nailed on bet here and is what I will be taking.
