Dortmund (dpa / lnw) - Viktoria Köln receives the record winner FC Bayern Munich in the first round of the DFB Cup. The soccer world champion of 2014, Kevin Großkreutz, drew the dream ticket for the team from the Cologne district of Höhenberg on the right bank of the Rhine on Sunday evening in the German Soccer Museum in Dortmund. Club representatives cheered in the stands.
It is conceivable that the third division team will not play their game in their own stadium, but will switch to 1. FC Köln. "It doesn't matter whether we win in Höhenberg or in Müngersdorf," said Viktoria's Vice President Franz Wunderlich on ARD with a smile. The Bundesliga club 1. FC plays in the first round at Jahn Regensburg.
The games are actually played from July 29th to August 1st. Because the Supercup between FC Bayern and Leipzig is also scheduled for July 30th, the two top teams will only play their cup games at the end of August.
