Although a large part of the first round of the DFB Cup has already been played, Bayern and Leipzig have to be late.

August 30th and 31st was selected as the catch-up date. On Tuesday Leipzig meets Ottensen in the DFB-Pokal, on Wednesday it’s Bayern’s turn against Viktoria Köln. Both games kick off at 8:46 p.m.
