DEFENDING champions Bayern Munich begin their DFB-Pokal campaign with a visit to Energie Cottbus.
The home side were a Bundesliga club just a decade ago but now ply their trade in the fourth division, whilst Bayern are looking to win their 20th title in this competition.
What time is kick-off?
THIS first round DFB-Pokal clash is set for TONIGHT, August 12.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST.
With no Premier League or Championship Monday night game, there’s no excuse not to tune in and get your football fix.
Cottbus play in the fourth division of German football and are 40/1 outsiders to stun the holders.
The last time they faced Bayern in competitive competition was in 2009, when they were still a Bundesliga club – since then they’ve suffered four relegations in ten years.
Bayern won that game 3-1 thanks to goals from Jose Sosa, Martin Demichelis and Lukas Podolski.
How can I watch for free?
THE match isn’t being broadcast live on TV in the UK.
But it is being streamed in full HD for free on the German FA Youtube channel.
Coverage begins at 7.45pm BST.
