Well the waiting is over: the first official match will commence in less than 4 hours. The game against Nordhorn should not pose problems but we know that the Cup is always full of surprises, and we also had lots of troubles last two seasons in the first round: a last minute win and a penalty loss against minnows Pirmasens. The squad that traveled to the german-dutch border is almost perfect: only Mertesacker and Harnik are missing. Hunt, Boenisch and Baumann managed to recover and had a good training session yesterday but for me i think it will be better not to play from the first minute. The Bundesliga start is very important and a new injury will not help the team at all.
