There is something in the air in the Hardtwald. A surprise is never impossible in the DFB Cup. Of course, these are increasingly rare in duels between amateurs and top clubs of the Bundesliga, but the SV Sandhausen should not be completely hopeless as a second division against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Kurpfälzer, however, are not exactly known as an absolute cup scare. The sand houses have been able to win at home twice in the DFB Cup. This probably means that the potential of a surprise should indeed be given, but not to the extent that we should assume a home win. Without question, Borussia is a big favorite in this game.
Sandhausen vs Gladbach Football Betting Tips
However, an advantage for the sand houses can not be denied. The team of Uwe Koschinat is already in the middle of the game operation, while the team from the Lower Rhine has previously completed only friendlies. So while the SVS was already able to regain rhythm, new coach Marco Rose does not really know where his Borussia are in the competitive games before the start. Nevertheless, it should be enough for a victory in a second division. Before the cup match between Sandhausen and Gladbach, the prediction clearly goes in the direction of an away win. We even assume that this should be relatively clear, because the Hardtwälder did not make a good start in the second Bundesliga and are already in desperate need of relegation at this early stage.
Cup and league, however, are two different pairs of shoes. Maybe the SVS succeeds in getting back on track with a victory in the DFB Cup in the lower house. But for us it is clear that in the duel between Sandhausen and Gladbach our tip would clearly place on a guest victory, with the odds of up to 1.37 are more in an area that is hardly worth in a cup match. Nevertheless, we have very little doubt that Gladbach will move into the second round.
Sandhausen – Statistics & Current Form
The cadre of the sand houses has certainly not become stronger in comparison to the previous year. The departures of Andrew Wooten, Nejmeddin Daghfous, Tim Knipping and Marcel Schuhen are certainly painful. Uwe Kozhinat has tried to improve the quality of the team in the width. The results in the first games of the still young league league season suggest that this endeavor has not yet quite succeeded. With just one point, the SVS is currently only in 13th place.
That almost looks like it could be a turbulent season in Hardtwald again. For concrete predictions, it is still too early in the second division. But that does not mean that this also applies to the cup match on Friday. In the match between Sandhausen and Gladbach odds of up to 9.00 on a home win in the regular season are offered. You do not have to be a prophet to talk about a very difficult task for SVS.
In the cup, however, it does not matter how you get ahead. An extra time or a victory on penalties would be good for Uwe Koschinat. For this, his team would have to pull the luck back on their side. With a little more Fortune, there could have been more points in league two.
“We have to be very efficient and catch an absolute cream day to get one more lap.” – Uwe Kozhinat
The 1: 1 on the first match in Kiel was still fine, but the defeat at home against the promoted from Osnabrück was more than unnecessary. So Sandhausen is already early in the season under pressure, not to lay down a complete false start. No wonder that Uwe Koschinat only gives his team a chance in the cup if it should catch an absolute Sahnetag.
Personally there is something all-clear. New signing Philip Türpitz could be in the squad for the first time after injury. Denis Linsmayer will likely slip into the starting lineup, apparently convinced in training. Due to injury, the SVS will still have to do without Roman Hauk, Sören Dieckmann, Markus Karl, Stefan Kulovits, Julius Biada and returnee Aziz Bouhaddouz.
Expected formation of Sandhausen:
➱ Fraisl – Linsmayer, Zhirov, Nauber, Diekmeier – Paurevic, Zenga – Engels, Forester, Behrens – Gislason

Gladbach – Statistics & Current Form
A lot is new at Borussia Mönchengladbach. The face of the team has changed in some positions, but more important is that with Marco Rose a new coach wants to give his business card in the Bundesliga. Last season, the coach won the trophy with RB Salzburg in Austria. Experience with such a competition is therefore sufficiently available. We are very curious if Marco Rose could prepare his game idea in preparation for his team and if the foals will gallop in the first competitive match.
With the preparation, the Borussia could be reasonably satisfied. Victims could win against some international opponents like Basaksehir, Rayo Vallecano or Angers. These are all teams that are probably more valued than the SVS, where a competitive game is still a different house number. Nevertheless leads in the cup match between Sandhausen and Gladbach nothing to a prediction on a progress of the guests over.
It will be important, above all, to completely engage with the unterklassigen opponents and not to underestimate this. That should not be easy, because last weekend Borussia played in the last test against the Europa League champion Chelsea FC. The Gladbacher showed a pleasing game and led to the break with goals from Alassane Plea and Jonas Hofmann 2-0.
“We want to try to write our own cup history and progress round by round. If you’re in such a competition, you want to get the most out of it. ” – Marco Rose
With two penalties in the second section, the English still came to a 2-2 final score. The dress rehearsal may well be considered as successful, but was quickly ticked off again, because Marco Rose puts the focus immediately on the DFB Cup. He makes no secret of the fact that his goal is to win the trophy with his team in Berlin. Until then, it is still a very long way, on which the SV Sandhausen would turn out to be a stumbling block. Personnel it looks at the Gladbacher relatively good. Of course, the two long-term injured Christoph Kramer and Lars Stindl missing. In addition, only Julio Villalba is out of action at the moment
Expected formation of Gladbach:
➱ Sommer – Wendt, Lainer, Ginter, Elvedi – Strobl, Hofmann, Neuhaus, Zakaria – Plea, Thuram

Sandhausen vs Gladbach Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
The Gladbacher were not always represented in the German upper house. However, the short trips to the second Bundesliga did not mean that they would have met on Sandhausen, because the Kurpfälzer play only in league two, since the Borussia has established itself again in the upper house. Therefore, there was still no direct duel between Sandhausen and Gladbach.
