In the second round of the German Cup, FC Bayern will be up against Bundesliga outfit Hannover 96 who eliminated SC Victoria Hamburg in the first round by the score of 2-0.
Last season, Bayern utterly dominated Hannover in the Bundesliga, beating them 5-0 at home and 6-1 away. Having said that, Hannover 96 have won twice in the last five times that the teams have met. This season, they will face each other in the Bundesliga just 11 days before this match.
Does anyone know when they determine if the game will be played on 24th or 25th? I just bought tix to this game and that is a pretty big deal since I live in Canada. Oktoberfest and Allianz Pokal action! Can't wait!
I'm lucky FCB drew at home otherwise I would have been going to see Dortmund @ Nuremberg (bundesliga not Pokal). And against Hannover at least Pep will be forced to start a strong XI. Its not like he wants to blow the Treble already. So a bad POkal draw for FCB has turned out to be pretty good one for me. I feel selfish but Im sure we can deal with 96. I will post pics for sure.
The only difference in Hannover's line-up will be Huszti's comeback. He is their main front man. But the game shouldnt be any different from the last one. Another 2-0, maybe with the help of Huszti Hannover will score this time, it will depend on what Guardiola does with the line-up. Will he give a day's rest to his best players?
