Elversberg team news
The third-tier side qualified for this competition by winning the regional trophy that is the Saarland Cup. They have caused a few shocks in the past, including a 2018-19 defeat of St Pauli before losing in a penalty shootout to Mainz last season.
The team should be not far removed from the side that won 5-1 on the opening day of the campaign. Luca Schnellbacher grabbed a brace on that occasion and will be partnered up front by Kevin Koffi.
Leverkusen team news
Amine Adil will miss the first few weeks of the season with an Achilles injury but Florian Wirtz (cruciate) is unlikely to be back before December. Adam Hlozek a summer signing from Sparta Prague could feature.
