One hour until kickoff: We have lineups! Looks like Julian Nagelsmann has opted to start Sadio Mane yet again with Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry up top for Bayern Munich. Mathys Tel makes his first start, as does Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui. Matthijs de Ligt also starts at the back, while Manuel Neuer is rested for Sven Ulreich.

After a long hiatus from the competition, Bayern Munich are back in the DFB Pokal! After two seasons of consecutive 2nd round knockouts, the Bavarians are looking to go all the way this year. First up is 3rd division side Viktoria Koln, who will be playing at the 50,000 capacity Rhein Energie Stadion.
Julian Nagelsmann will want to rotate for this one. Aside from Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller, the vast majority of the starting XI are set to get some rest. Operating in their place will be newer players like Mathys Tel, Ryan Gravenberch, Noussair Mazraoui, and Matthijs de Ligt. For many of them, this will be the first time they get to show off their talents. The Pokal journey begins here.
It’s Bayern time.
