Wolves do favorite role? Here is our betting prediction!
“The cup writes its own laws” – this motto is not new and yet it reappears every year in the DFB Pokal. Also in this first round, it has already caught two Bundesliga side on Saturday. Mainz failed in the derby on 1. FC Kaiserslautern and FC Augsburg was eliminated even against a fourth division, the SC Verl.
Today’s Betting Prediction Halle vs Wolfsburg
Hoffenheim came even after a 2-0 lead at the Würzburger Kickers still in the swim and trembled at the end after a penalty shootout. VfL Wolfsburg should be warned when he starts the journey to Halle an der Saale on Monday.
The Red-Whites have made a strong start to the season in league 3 and recently retracted three successes in series. The shape and the self-confidence of the hosts is huge. And the wolves? You do not really know what you’re at.
The green and white are facing their first competitive game after the summer break and also before the debut of Oliver Glasner on the sidelines. The coach takes over a well-rehearsed team of Bruno Labbadia and should develop it further – by the European Cup participation with triple load. But before the VfL goes on the long journey across the continent, the compulsory task is in the cup.
After fourth place in the preseason, the claims at the HFC have grown significantly. Coach Torsten Ziegner tried again and again to dampen expectations, and yet could not avoid the false start. After the dress rehearsal against Erfurt (0: 3) failed, Halle lost the first game of the season against Uerdingen 0: 1.
The pressure grew early on coach and team. How this dealt with it was all the more impressive. Halle put in a perfect English week with nine points from three games. In the successes against Rostock, Victoria Cologne and Chemnitz convinced not only the offensive, which consistently used their chances compared to the first matchday, but also the defensive with just one goal.
Nietfeld, Sohm, Göbel, Bahn and Jopek – the scorers from the offensive are versatile and point to the great flexibility in the game of Torsten Ziegner out. There was a downside to the recent 3-1 win over Chemnitz. Defender Tobias Schilk broke his hip and had to be replaced in the first round.
He can not help with that in the cup and will probably be replaced by the young Niklas Kastenhofer – possibly a small uncertainty factor. In the attack, on the other hand, an option was even added last time. New signing Terrence Boyd was allowed a good half hour against the CFC after his eligibility finally arrived.
The brawny striker with Bundesliga experience is an option in a cup fight – maybe even for the starting eleven. In any case, the third-placed in league 3 can go into the game on Monday night with confidence. The crowd will whip the underdog forward and losing Halle vs Wolfsburg has nothing to do with it; this prediction can be ventured.
Expected team of Halle:
➤ Eisele – Landgraf, May, Kastenhofer – Göbel, Railway, Guttau, Jopek, Mast – Nietfeld, Sohm
Last matches from Halle:
⚽️ 03.08.2019 – Halle vs. Chemnitz 3: 1 (3rd league)
⚽️ 31.07.2019 – FC Viktoria Cologne vs. Halle 0: 2 (3rd league)
⚽️ 27.07.2019 – Halle vs. Rostock 1: 0 (3rd league)

A promising team gets a promising coach. Thus, the starting position at VfL Wolfsburg before the start of the season briefly and concisely. Oliver Glasner has risen to the top league of Austria with the LASK 2017 and brought the club to the European League qualification the following season and set a new club record.
His advance laurels are so great and he wants to enforce his modern and attractive offensive football now in Germany. For this purpose, VfL Wolfsburg offers him the perfect conditions. Bruno Labbadia leaves behind a very structured and well-rehearsed team, which has even qualified for the international business by the 8-1 victory in the last game of the preseason.
The basic structure in the squad remains the same and was selectively strengthened selectively. Foreign forward Joao Victor and left-back Paulo Otávio follow their coach and played under Glasner a season together at the Linz ASK. Also midfield engine Xaver Schlager of RB Salzburg knows the football of the new Wolfsburg training director.
With Kevin Mbabu, Basle got a real boost to the right wing and with Lukas Nmecha from Manchester City a youngster with a lot of potential – also for the long term future. After the disagreements between Jörg Schmadtke and Bruno Labbadia especially the chemistry seems to be tuning internally and everything is actually done for a successful season in the Autostadt.
The preparation was very successful. The wolves were spared from major injuries and the results were impressive. In the three draws and four wins the spectacular 8: 1 win in the last friendly against OGC Nice stood out. The only problem of the new coach Glasner is spoiled for choice, which he has with the starting eleven.
Especially offensively he has numerous options and set seems to be only top scorer Wout Weghorst, who shone with 17 goals in the preseason. Behind it there are still numerous question marks and one can be curious, who gets the preference in the first competitive game and how well the team already works. In Halle Wolfsburg wants to directly confirm the low odds for a tip on the away win and set a sign one week before the Bundesliga start.
Expected team of Wolfsburg:
➤ Casteels – Brooks, Roussillon, Tisserand, Gerhardt – Klaus, Joao Victor, Guilavogui, Brekalo, Steffen – Weghorst
Last matches of Wolfsburg:
⚽️ 03.08.2019 – Wolfsburg vs OGC Nice 8: 1 (Friendly Match)

⚽️ 22.07.2019 – Fenerbahce vs. Wolfsburg 1: 1 (friendly)
⚽️ 17.07.2019 – PSV Eindhoven Vs. Wolfsburg 0: 2 (friendly)
⚽️ 13.07.2019 – Wolfsburg vs VVV Venlo 2: 2 (Friendly Match)
