The match against the Hamburg State Cup winners will be the first competitive match for the Werkself in the coming season. Following the draw, sporting managing director Simon Rolfes talked about an "interesting" draw and at the same time said: "Obviously we will be taking our opponents very seriously particularly looking at our early exit last season.
