DFB Cup game details confirmed

The German Football Association (DFB) today confirmed details of the DFB Cup Second Round tie: The Werkself are away to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Wednesday 31 October at 20.45 CET.

Parallel to the late Wednesday night game at Gladbach's Borussia Park (live on Sky) there is the tie between TSG Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig that will be broadcast on terrestrial TV. FC Köln entertain FC Schalke 04 earlier at 18.30 CET, which means there may well be heavier traffic on the way to Mönchengladbach. Supporters are advised to set off in good time.
