RB Leipzig’s DFB-Pokal first-round tie against FC Teutonia 05 Ottensen on 30th August (Tuesday, 20:46 CEST) will take place at the Red Bull Arena.
Pitch in Dessau unfit for purpose
The game was due to take place at the Paul-Greifzu-Stadion in Dessau, but the surface was damaged so much in recent days that the pitch is no longer in a playable condition after a check on Tuesday carried out by representatives of the DFB, Ottensen and the city of Dessau.
RBL have home advantage
The DFB requested that the game be played at the Red Bull Arena, which brings into effect the rule of the home-right switch, which sees RB Leipzig become the home team for the first-round tie.
