RB Leipzig to face 1. FC Nürnberg in the DFB-Pokal

The Bulls will face 1. FC Nürnberg in the first round of the DFB-Pokal | Full field of 64 teams still incomplete with break in football caused by the Coronavirus pandemic | Match to take place between 11th to 14th September

RB Leipzig will face 1. FC Nürnberg in the first round of the DFB-Pokal. 

Following the break in football caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the full list of 64 teams competing for this season's trophy is still incomplete. Instead, placeholders were used during the draw to represent those sides still looking to qualify for the competition. 

The first round of DFB-Pokal matches will take place from 11th to 14 September, a week before the Bundesliga gets back underway. 

Sporting director Markus Krösche:

  • "Firstly, it's nice that know who our opponents are - that's not the case for all the other teams. Nürnberg certainly do not sound like a first-round opponent. It will be a tough match to start with, but our goal remains to advance to the next round in Nürnberg." 
Mit diesem Trikot gehen die Roten Bullen in die neue Saison!
