Bayern München vs Oberhausen (DFB Pokal 2nd Rd) Preview

Tonight Bayern München will play the DFB Pokal Second Round against Second Division Oberhausen at home. Speculation suggested that Bayern München will rest some players in order to let some players to prepare the Saturday important Bundesliga against Hamburger SV. On the other hand, Oberhausen do not have any pressure and they are more than happy if they can make surprises. In this preview I will focus on Bayern München as I do have limited information on Oberhausen.

Bayern München had recorded 4 wins in a row from all kinds of matches. Their morality is excellent and everyone is confident. Bastian Schweinsteiger did better and better to be a central midfielder to control the attacking flow and holding the midfield. I believe he will play this match even though the Saturday match is important. However, Arjen Robben and Holger Badstuber may rest match. So, Luca Toni may set for the comeback debut and Breno also may set for his season debut. Franck Ribery maybe the substitute once again and I believe Mario Gomez or Miroslav Klose will start this match and Toni will be the substitute.

What makes Bayern München to win: Class. No doubt, Bayern München is above of them at all sorts. Better in attack, better in defence, and better in finishing will make Bayern München to have an easy win. So all they have to do is not to get reckless.
What makes them down: Complacency. Last Bundesliga Bayern München showed how careless they were. They all thought they would win easily when they were 1 goal up but the opposition caught them napping and got the equalizing goal. Lucky for Bayern München that they could rush for another goal in time. So Bayern München must get this lesson in this match.
General prediction: Very obvious, Bayern München will have an easy win. There may not be a lot of goals as it is not their style plus they have to reserve some energy for the Hamburger SV clash this Saturday. So I believe Bayern München will start walking and keeping their possession after they secure their win. My tip: Bayern München win 3-0.
