Viktoria Cologne team news
As a member of the 3.Liga, Viktoria Cologne aren’t guaranteed a spot in the DFB-Pokal with only the top four clubs of the previous season gaining a place. But Viktoria Cologne earned their spot as one of the regional cup winners, claiming their second consecutive Mittelrhein (Middle Rhein) trophy.
The hosts will be without forward Andre Becker for this game, while midfielders Luca Marseiler and Jeremias Lorch are also absent, the latter suffering a cruciate ligament injury over the summer.
Bayern Munich team news
Bayern Munich are certain to ring the changes against third-tier opposition, with Julian Nagelsmann having strength enough in depth to avoid an upset – though he may be wary of 2020/21’s second-round defeat to Holstein Kiel. One player hoping to play a part is Leon Goretzka who has recently returned to training following a knee injury, while summer arrivals Noussair Mazraoui, Matthijs de Ligt and Mathys Tel may also start.
