For the other clubs, the first round of the DFB Cup is long over. For Schalke 04 it doesn’t start until Tuesday. The match against Schweinfurt should have taken place 53 days ago, but the match was canceled shortly – Türkgücü Munich received a court order in September. Subsequently, the courts had to consider whether Schweinfurt or Türkgücü was entitled to play against the Bundesliga club.
The verdict was in favor of Schweinfurt. The game comes at a good time for the regional league team. Schalke is still without a victory in the Bundesliga and is in the table cellar with only two points. The Schweinfurters are therefore hoping for a little sensation. “In our WhatsApp group there was some saying and joking,” said Schweinfurt goalkeeper Zwick on Bavarian radio.
Whether the Lower Franconia can actually beat the Royal Blues will be decided from 4.30pm on Tuesday. Chillreport tells you where to watch the game.
