Draw odds: 8/1 (9.00) – 11.1%

Unsurprisingly, Leverkusen have been named as Wednesday’s expected winners by a distance by the bookmakers and the implied probability of an away win landing is currently 90.9%. Both teams not to score meanwhile, could be an option at a nice price of 1/2 (1.50 – 66.7%) in what could be a major mismatch.

Sandhausen

Sandhausen are sitting in seventh place in the 3.Liga in Germany and the hosts tend to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. They used that setup to good effect when they beat Dortmund's second team 2-1 on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup for Sandhausen: Rehnen – Ehlich, Geschwill, Fuchs, Weik – Muhling, Ben Balla, Stolze, Hennings, Maciejewski – Otto

Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen's squad looks strong at present and only Ayman Aourir and Arthur are listed as absent. Coach Xabi Alonso could rotate his team this week in what should be a routine encounter in the cup.

Predicted Lineup for Leverkusen: Kovar – Kossounou, Tah, Tapsoba – Frimpong, Palacios, Xhaka, Grimaldo – Adli, Tella, Hlozek

Player to Watch – Adam Hlozek

Adam Hlozek has had to patient this season and though the young striker has seen little action in the Bundesliga, he could be handed a chance to shine in the cup on Wednesday. The 21-year-old has the skills to do some damage against Sandhausen.
