While the hosts have never won Germany’s primary domestic cup, their hosts’ only triumph in the competition came in the 2014-15 season.

Having only earned promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time in the club’s history in 2019, it is perhaps no surprise that Union Berlin have never succeeded in the DFB Pokal.

However, they did manage to impressively reach the final as a third tier side in the 2000-01 season, when they were beaten 2-0 by Schalke 04.

Things have changed in the following two decades since, with Schalke now sitting rock-bottom of the Bundesliga while Union Berlin continue to fly high under the tutelage of Urs Fischer, with their fifth consecutive derby victory over Hertha Berlin on Saturday moving them within one point of league leaders Bayern Munich.

With a Europa League last-32 tie with Ajax awaiting them in February, Fischer may be torn about adding another competition to the mix after missing out on Champions League qualification by a single point last season.

However, they were also one game away from reaching only their second ever DFB-Pokal final, so the 56-year-old will surely be determined to see his team capitalise on their fine form and progress deep into the latter stages of the competition once again.

Although they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Werder Bremen at the weekend, Wolfsburg are likely to take some stopping at Stadion An der Forsterei on Tuesday.

The defeat ended Wolfsburg’s unbeaten run of 10 league matches, which has turned around a slow start under Niko Kovac to put them firmly in contention to secure a European qualification spot come the end of the season should they continue their recent form.

Having been thrown out of the DFB Pokal last season for using too may substitutes during their 3-1 victory over fourth-tier side Preussen Munster, Kovac may sence the chance to secure a permanent legacy at his new home with a deep run in the cup.

Unlike their hosts, Wolfsburg do not have the distraction of European football to contend with this season, so there is no reason at all for Kovac and his players not to throw everything at this tie.

Union Berlin Team News

Union Berlin will be without midfielders Andras Schafer and Morten Thorsby due to ankle and abdominal injuries respectively, but otherwise Fischer has a fully fit squad to utilise.

Jordan Siebatcheu has been named among the substitutes in each of his side’s recent two victories after enduring a goalscoring drought in recent times, but he should earn an opportunity from the start here.
