In the catch-up game of the first round of the DFB Cup, the fifth division club 1. FC Düren lost 0-3 to Bayern Munich in the Allianz Arena and missed the big sensation.

The German record champions first had to sort out a little with an eleven with many new ones. So the blatant underdog had a finish in the first minute, but Nübel was able to easily catch Brasnic's header.

But even in the aftermath, the clear class difference on the pitch was hardly noticeable. It wasn't until the 18th minute that Choupo-Moting had the first big opportunity from close range, but Jackmuth parried strongly with his foot. The Rhinelander disturbed Bayern with a lot of effort already in the build-up, but were left behind in the 24th minute when Choupo-Moting pushed the ball past the goalkeeper after a pass from Sarr. After a bad pass from Jackmuth, the Cameroonian was fouled in the penalty area and Müller increased in the 36th minute with a penalty on the bottom left.

In the second half, Munich had the action largely under control, but only had a great chance in the 56th minute when Choupo-Moting failed after a pass from Costa to Jackmuth. In the 63rd minute, the ex-PSG player lifted over the Düren goalkeeper, but Pütz just headed the game device from the line. In the 64th minute, Musiala hit the right outside post after a strong solo from close range. In the 75th minute, Choupo-Moting made his second goal when he completed the left bend centrally from 17 meters.

In the 84th minute, the goalkeeper of the fifth division flew past a corner kick and the surprised Martinez hit the left post with his head. In the end, Bayern Munich won against brave Dürener lackluster, but overall sovereign and is in the second round of the DFB Cup.
