Match preview

Will Wolfsburg avoid an early DFB-Pokal exit?

Last season, Die Wölfe crashed out at this stage of the competition, beaten 2-0 by Preußen Münster.

This set the tone for a very poor season in which Wolfsburg finished 12th in the Bundesliga, eight places lower than the previous year.

Now under new management, Niko Kovač has taken over, will they make a better start to this new campaign?

Carl Zeiss Jens meanwhile will be hoping to spring a surprise.

Last season, they came second in the Regionalliga Nordost, so remain rooted in the fourth-tier.

In the Pokal, they haven’t got past the first round since 2015, something that is unlikely to change here.

Will Wolfsburg be far too strong at Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld?

Wolfsburg team news
