Cedric Harenbrock (68') and Marvin Obuz (74') scored for RW Essen.

Verl head into the clash following on from a 3-2 3rd Liga win with the downing of Hallescher in their previous match.
For Verl, the goals were scored by Nicolás Sessa (18'), Torge Paetow (26') and Oliver Batista Meier (42'). Dominik Baumann (4') and Enrique Lofolomo (45') scored for Hallescher.
In their previous 6 clashes, Verl have helped themselves to a total of 18 goals. Verl have also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. During those fixtures, their defenders have had 7 goals go against them. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see if the trend might continue on in this match or not.

Team News: Mannheim
Fridolin Wagner (Inner knee ligament tear), Tim Sechelmann (strain) and Marcel Seegert (Knee injury) will be missing for Mannheim manager Rüdiger Rehm. Kelvin Arase is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
It’s our opinion that Mannheim may well make use of the 4-3-3 system for this game and select Filip Djukic, Magnus Fredslund, Matti Olsen, Daniel Stenderup, Ahmed Iljazovski, Jonas Gemmer, Christian Jakobsen, Martin Spelmann, Lirim Qamili, Tobias Thomsen and Marcus Lindberg.
Team News: Verl
With a completely injury-free group to choose from, the Verl boss Alexander Ende has no fitness worries to speak of before this game. Marcel Benger will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We reckon that Verl might play in a 3-4-3 formation, giving starts to Nathan Trott, Denis Kolinger, Raul Albentosa, Oliver Provstgaard, Thomas Gundelund, Hamza Barry, Saeid Ezatolahi, Miiko Albornoz, Kristian Kirkegaard, German Onugkha and Yeni N'Gbakoto.
Here is a game where Mannheim will have to perform well to hit the back of the net against this Verl side who we reckon will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Verl at the end of the 90.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
