Looking more defensively sound under Stoger, Al Hin-Cole expects Die Schwarzgelben to ensure a tight clash against Die Roten at the Allianz Arena

The headline tie of the DFB-Pokal Last 16 takes place at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday as Bayern Munich take on Borussia Dortmund in another Klassiker encounter.

Having run out 3-1 away winners in last month's Bundesliga encounter, Die Roten are clear 4/9 (1.44) favourites with dabblebet to come out on top once again over their rivals.

However, new manager Peter Stoger has overseen two wins from two since taking over from Peter Bosz less than two weeks ago, and is priced at 5/1 (6.00) to ingratiate himself with the fans even further with another victory in this one.

The hosts needed penalties to see off RB Leipzig after a 1-1 draw in the last round, and there are odds of 15/4 (4.75) available on them taking this one into extra-time after another deadlocked 90 minutes.

Although some eyebrows were raised following the appointment of a manager that had collected just three points and no wins from the opening 14 matches of the league season with Koln, Stoger is already looking like just the right man to steady the ship in Westphalia.

Having scrapped the high-risk pressing game favoured by predecessor Bosz, the Austrian boss has instantly added some defensive solidity that was so sorely lacking.

Indeed, the debut 2-0 victory over Mainz saw Die Schwarzgelben keep a clean sheet for the first time in 17 fixtures against top flight opposition, while they relied mainly on counter attacks in Saturday's 2-1 win over Hoffenheim.

Although you would normally expect this defensive resilience to be severely tested at the Allianz Arena, Jupp Heynckes' team have actually won each of their last three matches by narrow 1-0 scorelines.

With this in mind, Wednesday's high profile clash could prove particularly tightly-contested, with odds of 4/5 (1.80) looking generous on under 3.5 goals being scored for Dortmund's third consecutive match and a seventh in nine for Bayern.
