How to watch the DFB Pokal clash between Viktoria Koln and Bayern Munich on TV in the United Kingdom and the United States
Bayern Munich will play German third-tier side Viktoria Koln in a DFB Pokal first-round clash at the RheinEnergieStadion, on Wednesday evening.
Enjoying the top spot in Bundesliga, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will have been frustrated to have been held 1-1 at home by Borussia Monchengladbach last time out after scoring 15 goals in wins over Eintracht Frankfurt, Wolfsburg, and VfL Bochum.
The hosts are eighth in the 3. Bundesliga table and will be hoping to avert a humiliating scoreline as they attempt to punch above their weight.
