Betting prediction was written by Dan Adair



Round 1 of Germany DFB Pokal sees tiny Wilhelmshaven host one of the best sides in Europe in Borussia Dortmund.

Wilhelmshaven of Lower Saxony are a side from the fourth tier of German football. They ply their trade in Germany Regionalla Nord. The side has jumped up and down between tiers 3 and 4 and are usually dropped straight back down as they struggle to adjust to the level of 3rd tier. The side are a bunch of journeyman German pros with quite a few African imports.

Borussia Dortmund finished last season as the 2nd best side in Germany and Europe. Struggling to keep pace with the relentless Bayern they eventually finished a whopping 25 points behind their Bavarian rivals.  Out goes poster boy Gotze to Bayern, while Lewandowski remains unhappy that his club blocked a huge bid from Munich. In comes Henrik Mktarayan, who arrives from Donetsk but will sit out for a month with an injury.  Also arriving are Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Saint-Etienne for a fee of 13m; Goalkeeper Hendrik Bonmann on a free transfer from Rot-Weiss Essen; Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Werder Bremen for a fee of 9.5m. In the German Supercup played in Dortmund they took apart Champions Bayern with some clinical football, crushing Bayern 4-2.


This tie is a formality, such is the expectation of a Dortmund win a few bookmakers quote odds of 1/100. The Asian handicap is set at -4.5 and even then most bookmakers do not offer prices.  Markets are restricted as you would expect so for value we look towards the traditional handicap. Ladrokes offer Borussia Dortmund -4 at 2.15. Wilhelmshaven will look to contain but I cannot see anything other than a landslide.
