Dynamo Dresden hosts Hamburger SV

Dynamo Dresden hosts Hamburger SV at the Rudolf-Harbig-Stadion in Dresden in a match from the first round of the German DFB Pokal. One of these two teams will progress towards the second round of the competition. Let’s preview it in our football prediction betting tips today.

Dynamo Dresden are currently participating in Germany’s 3. Liga which is the third tier of German football. The match against Hamburger is going to be their first official game for the season, so we can’t really say if they are in a good shape or not. In their last friendly game Dynamo faced Erzgebirge Aue and achieved a 1-0 win.

Right now Dynamo Dresden are being managed by Markus Kauczinski and they have mostly German players in their squad. Some of the exceptions are the Greek striker Panagiotis Vlachodimos and the Slovakian Luka Stor.

Hamburger SV are still playing in the 2. Bundesliga, trying to get a promotion back to the Bundesliga. The former European champions are currently managed by the 46-years old Daniel Thioune. This is going to be his first season at the club. He arrives from Osnabruck where he worked for three seasons.

On the transfer market Hamburged didn’t have any cash to spend, so they signed only free agents. Hoffenheim’s Amadou Onana, Paderborn’s Klaus Gjasula, Koln’s Simon Terodde and Queens Park Rangers’ Toni Leistner chose to move to the Volksparkstadion and open a new chapter in their careers.

These are our football prediction betting tips today for the DFB Pokal game between Dynamo Dresden and Hamburger SV. HSV are the team from the higher division here, but in these cup games it’s not always deciding the winner. Since years Hamburger are not what they used to be, so maybe Dynamo Dresden have some chances to cause an upset here.
