The draw for the first round of the 2016-17 DFB Pokal took place today in Germany, and the reigning champions Bayern Munich now know who they will be facing. The Bavarians will be heading up to Thüringen to face Regionalliga Nordost fourth tier side Carl Zeiss Jena in the first round. The two have never played each other in any competition.

Carl Zeiss Jena earned a spot in the German cup by winning the Thuringia Cup.

As always with the Pokal, Bayern will be expected to win the entire thing, so a first round match against a club like Jena should present no challenges to the side. The first round matches will take place between August 19-22 and will be officially announced closer to the date.
