Just because Bayern Munich is not playing, doesn’t mean we won’t give you a place to discuss the match!

With Bayern Munich out of the competition thanks to Holstein Kiel, it has finally come time to see if the clock strikes 12 midnight on this season’s DFB-Pokal Cinderella story.

Holstein Kiel will take on heavily-favored Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park with a miracle in mind.

Just imagine, a 2. Bundesliga side having the chance to knock off both Bayern Munch and Borussia Dortmund in the same DFB-Pokal tournament...how crazy would that be?

Anyway, BVB should be in line to storm the Holstein Kiel defense with a powerful offense led by Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, and Marco Reus among others. Still, anyone who saw Holstein Kiel stifle Bayern Munich for long stretches knows this side should not be trifled with.

Enjoy the match!
