A place in the DFB Pokal semifinals is on the line when Paderborn hosts Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Bayern has won the domestic cup competition a record 18 times and is seeking its fourth title in six years, but it will have to come away with a result on the road against an upstart opponent in order to keep its hopes of another trophy alive.
Paderborn currently leads Germany’s third-tier 3. Liga and has achieved wins over St. Pauli, Bochum and Ingolstadt in its unlikely run to the quarterfinals. Naturally, a fourth straight triumph and one over Bayern would be its biggest shock yet.
Bayern Munich are a whopping 18 points clear in the Bundesliga at the top of the table. Whilst earlier in the season, they struggled under Carlo Ancelotti, that is now all forgotten with Bayern virtually certain in early February of winning the Bundesliga. Jupp Heynckes wrapped up the treble last time he was in charge at Bayern Munich and that now looks eminently possible this season as well. Draws against Paderborn in the DFB Pokal quarter-finals and Besiktas in the Champions League first knockout rounds should not faze a Bayern Munich side in simply awesome form.
Considering the sides that have lost to Bayern Munich in recent months (e.g. PSG, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund) it would be a huge surprise if Paderborn from the third division can do the job tonight.
Paderborn are top of the third division which suggests they will make a game of it. To get to this stage of the competition, Paderborn have beaten St Pauli, Bochum and Ingolstadt. All three of these sides are in the German second division, so to play Bayern Munich simply looks a step too far.
