There is again the DFB Cup. The second round of the tournament is coming up and a particularly interesting game can be seen on free TV.
The DFB-Pokal is absolutely reliable when it comes to surprises. Almost every season there is at least one unexpected turn when a small club from the third or fifth division makes it really far in the tournament and can prevail against the big ones. One game can be seen live on free TV today, the others not. We’ll tell you where.

The top game today could even be quite exciting: Borussia Dortmund is playing against FC Ingolstadt 04. While BVB want the championship title, Ingolstadt is in the second division. Things are not going quite as smoothly there, however, as FC threatens to relegate to the third division at the end of the season. But there is still a little time until then. From 8 p.m. the free TV channel Sport1 will show the game live today. Stefan Effenberg is there as an expert, the role is commented by Markus Höhner and Jochen Stutzky.

How good are the chances for Ingolstadt?
The blatant outsider FC Ingolstadt wants to put defending champion Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Cup game with high stakes strong resistance. “We will sell ourselves as dearly as possible,” announced coach André Schubert before the away game of the bottom of the second division table with the top team of the Bundesliga this Tuesday. Coach Marco Rose’s team is of course “highly favored,” said Schubert on Monday. “But we are not without a chance because something extraordinary can happen in every cup game.”
Schubert and his players are looking forward to the duel against an “absolute top team in Germany”. It is an “experience to be able to play against absolute top players in Dortmund,” said Schubert.
