VfL Bochum – Borussia Dortmund (Wednesday 19:45 GMT)
+

Preview:

 The Black and Yellows have made an excellent start to 2023, and they will now be aiming to continue their progress by securing their place in the DFB-Pokal quarterfinals. But VfL Bochum are coming off a 5-2 win over Hoffenheim, and will be aiming to pull off an upset on Wednesday.

Winning the DFB-Pokal will no doubt be high on Borussia Dortmund’s list of goals for this season. And, with a place in the quarterfinals on offer, they will likely field a full strength side against Bochum. Borussia Dortmund looks in extremely fine form and also almost looks unbeatable in the manner in which they’re playing in the German top flight. 

Away days can be a tough experience for any travelling side in Germany, but with a DFB Pokal encounter, the pressure should be much less and a calm and assured performance, alongside world-class quality, should get them through.

Olympique Marseille – Paris Saint Germain (Wednesday 20:10 GMT)
+

Preview:

The Classique rivals are separated by eight points in the Ligue 1 table, with first-placed PSG leading second-placed Marseille, meaning Wednesday’s showdown is destined to be a thriller. Marseille kicked off their Coupe de France campaign with a 2-0 victory over Hyeres before booking their place in the last 16 with a 1-0 win against Rennes. That means they have yet to concede a goal in the competition this season, although they will struggle to extend that record against free-scoring PSG.

Marseille head into Wednesday’s clash on the back of a 3-1 loss to Nice, ending a run of nine league games without defeat, in which they secured six straight wins. Marseille have reported no fresh injury problems ahead of this clash, meaning manager Igor Tudor has a full-strength squad at his disposal. PSG look set to be without the injured Mbappe after he missed the previous game, while Sergio Ramos, Neymar, Nordi Mukiele and Presnel Kimpembe are also sidelined.
