Because of the Super Cup between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich, the last two matches of the first round of the DFB Cup will only take place this week. Today the first of the two games can be seen live on free and pay TV.

As the defending champions, RB Leipzig will have to deal with the blatant outsider Teutonia Ottensen. The Hamburg state cup winners were really unlucky when the game was scheduled. At first, no club in the Hanseatic city wanted to make their stadium available for the actual home game against RB. When they thought they had found a suitable venue in Dessau, hundreds of kilometers from home – and only a few minutes from Leipzig – the lawn there became contaminated. So you finally had to cede home rights to Leipzig. The kick-off will sound this Tuesday at 8.46 p.m. in the trade fair city. ZDF and Sky broadcast live.

RB Leipzig now with a home game in the DFB Cup, Bayern away in Cologne in front of a full house

On Wednesday, at the same broadcast time, the game between third division team Viktoria Köln, who, unlike Ottensen, can move to the largest stadium in their hometown, against Bayern Munich, but this time on ARD and Sky. Here, too, the balance of power should be clearly regulated, even if a sold-out house awaits the people of Munich in Cologne-Müngersdorf. Anything but a progression of champions and cup winners would amount to extraordinary football miracles.

In the second round it could look different again. The record champions from Bavaria said goodbye in the last two years in the round of 32.
