Hertha should make class tell in German Cup clash
German Cup first round
BT Sport 3, 7.45pm Monday
Bookmakers can sniff an upset close to the Baltic Sea when Hertha head to Rostock but the Berlin boys should have enough quality in their ranks to see off third-tier Hansa in the first round of the DFB Pokal.
Hertha have a few injury problems and this will be their first competitive clash of the season whereas Hansa have played four league contests.
However, the hosts were 15th last season and it's a major challenge for them to take on Bundesliga opposition.

Hansa have won only two of their last 16 home games.
