Elversberg 07 vs Bayer Leverkusen Tips and Prediction
Leverkusen qualified for the Champions League group stage after an outstanding 2021–22 season in which they finished third.
But before the group stage begins in early September, Leverkusen will concentrate on another competition.
Considering how unsuccessful Die Werkself has been lately, Leverkusen will be eager to repeat their Pokal-winning season from back in 1993 this year.
Leverkusen won the opening round of their their long ago Pokal run against lower-league opponents, and they will play another minnow this weekend.
Only the top two divisions, together with four teams from the third tier, are assured qualification for the Pokal due to the complexities of Germany’s domestic cup system.
Elversberg is one of the other participating teams, which are selected among the champions of Germany’s regional cup competitions.
Elversberg qualified for the Pokal for just the ninth time in their history by winning the Saarland Cup, the cup tournament for teams in the Rhineland-Palatinate region.
Granted, Elversberg has made a name for themselves in the Pokal, as four of those nine appearances have occurred in the past five seasons.
After this match, it is difficult to think of a scenario in which Leverkusen does not move on to the second round of the Pokal. We expect a easy 3 point claiming by Bayer Leverkusen
