Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart Kickers: Live Stream, TV Channel, Betting Odds, Start Time of German Cup DFB Pokal Match

Borussia Dortmund and Stuttgart Kickers are set to face off in a German Cup match on Saturday, August 16.

Kick-off time is 9:25 a.m. EDT (3:25 p.m. CET) at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN3 in the United States.

Live streaming is available on Watch ESPN (US).

Dortmund are 3/19 to win the match, while Kickers are 18/1 to take the game, according to OddsChecker.

Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is not taking this match lightly, even though the Kickers are in the German third division.

“The way they have played so far, Kickers could very well also be the third division league leaders had they taken their chances in Wiesbaden and not conceded two late goals from set pieces,” said Klopp to the club’s official website.

“They are a talented side with a coach who is a native from the region.”

“The fact that they are calm, well-knit and have more match practice are important factors,” added the Dortmund coach.

“Every third division players could easily play in second tier – and we wouldn’t be happy to travel to a second division side and say ‘we have already won the game’, would we.”

Klopp remains modest about his side’s chances, even though they beat reigning German champions Bayern Munich in the German Supercup on Wednesday.

“The game may be played under the same rules, but it will be played under different circumstances.

“It’s not like we are only waiting for the second round draw.

“We are expecting a lot of work.

“But if we work hard, it will also be a tough job for Kickers,” Klopp said.
