  • DFB Cup

Borussia Dortmund will play their second round DFB Cup tie against Gladbach tomorrow but there are still eight matches today.

Reigning champions Bayern Munich travel to Bochum who are struggling and are in the relegation zone in the 2.Bundesliga. This should be an easy win for Bayern.

The most interesting game might be between two 2.Bundesliga sides. HSV and VfB Stuttgart will meet and Hamburg hope to beat Stuttgart for the first time in the DFB Cup, the northern Germans have lost all four of their previous matches in this competition.

  • Götze injured but might still play

Mario Götze suffered injuries to his ulna and wrist during the game against Schalke but still could be able to play against Borussia Mönchengladbach tomorrow. The black and yellows will hope that Götze can start, otherwise they won’t have a striker once again with Paco Alcacer still out.

In addition, Marwin Hitz might have to start again if Roman Bürki can’t play.

Daily Buzz: At this point it’s pretty obvious that BVB need another striker, Alcacer can’t stay healthy and Götze plays well but isn’t a goal scoring threat. Should Dortmund look to sign another striker in January and who would you suggest?
