This is a very tough draw. We will prepare for this game meticulously and we will do our best. We hope our fans at Grünwalder Stadion can enjoy a magical cup.” Another day or night is a cup.”

How did the lottery go?

The pairings of the first round matches in the DFB Cup were drawn from two containers. The balls of the Bundesliga and second division teams were in the first bet, and those of amateur teams in the other bet. However: the fifteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth seasons of the last second division and those promoted to the second tier in the amateur pot ends. This means that there were 32 balls in each of the pots.

In a draw, one card is drawn first from the amateur’s container and then from the other container. The team that is drawn first has a home advantage.
