DFB-Pokal forecast: Form curve of the teams

We create our DFB-Pokal forecast, in order to be able to give as safe betting tips as possible. Traditionally we start with the home team for this analysis. However, the BFC Dynamo is not really in a good mood. Only two of the last seven games could be won. The remaining five games were lost. In terms of league operations in the Northeast Regional League, the most recent results were one win and three defeats. But now we want to look not only at the trends, but also at the opponents.

Still in the last season the players of the BFC lost against Fürstenwalde with 2:4. A first test game in preparation for the current season ended with a 2:1 victory over Brandenburg. Afterwards, however, there was a setback. Because with 1:2 was lost against Carl-Zeiss Jena. Afterwards the regional league will start its league operations. At first everything went according to plan. With 4:1 they won over Auerbach. Afterwards, however, everything went wrong. With 0:2 a bankruptcy in Chemnitz followed. Furthermore there was a 0:5 against Halberstadt. And finally, the team lost 0:3 against the Berlin AK.

So the Cologne team sold out!

To bet on the BFC Dynamo is one of the risky betting tips so far. But what has the 1st FC Cologne organized in the past weeks? If we focus only on the results, things look good with three wins, three draws and one defeat. But it’s not just a win, draw or defeat that has to be considered. To round off the picture, we would like to take a look at the results and the opponents. First of all, we can tell you that the Cologne team did not make it easy for themselves.

First of all, a 5:2 victory over Eichstätt is on the cards. After that they had the only bankruptcy to guest at Bonn with 0:1, followed by two draws. First a test match in Wuppertal ended with 2:2. After that it was enough to win against the English team of FC Watford 1:1. And in the home game against SV Werder Bremen there was a 1:0 victory. Afterwards the 2nd Bundesliga starts with a 2-0 guest appearance at VfL Bochum. The final game on Monday was against 1 FC Union Berlin. After a 1:0 lead, the 1:1 had to be accepted.

Evaluation: Cologne showed a better performance, in a stronger league, against more qualitative opponents. Not only at first glance the BFC is at a disadvantage here.

Statistical and direct comparison

We cannot make a direct comparison due to a lack of matches. Therefore we look back on the last season. Of course, the Cologners don’t come off well here, because after all the billy goats have relegated. In 34 games they only got 22 points and with 35:70 goals they rightfully left the Bundesliga. But even in this epidemic season there were rays of hope. Last year, BFC Dynamo took fourth place in the regional league and thus also qualified for the trophy. 54 points and a scoring record of 70:50 is quite impressive. This also shows, as in the current season, the strength in the offense and the weakness in the defense.

Where is the barn door wide open?

In fact, it is the regional list, which has already had to put up with one or two packs. We would like to look back on the league games so far. The results are as follows: 4:1, 0:2, 0:5 and 0:3. 15 impressive goals were scored in four games. Eleven times it has struck at the BFC. And the Cologne team? Here we discover a 2:0 and a 1:1. Exactly two goals have been scored in each case. Especially the offensive has already proven its qualities. Therefore, it can be assumed that against Dynamo is more often eingeetzt.

Appraisal: Cologne may well calculate chances for several goals. After all, BFC Dynamo in the league, in four games, has already caught eleven goals against.
