The holder of the German Cup in the last 2 seasons, “RB Leipzig” has easily skipped the 1st round of the new campaign in the tournament.
When visiting the second division “Veen” (Wiesbaden), the elite team met resistance, but still won with 3:2.
Emil Forsberg and Benyamin Sesko gave a 2:0 lead for the visitors from Leipzig until the 18th minute.
Ivan Prtain pulled one goal back for the hosts before the break.
Again, Seško was accurate in the 70th minute for “RB Leipzig”.
Again, Prtain reduced Veen’s deficit 3 minutes later to slow down the Bundesliga representative, but could not “push the chair from under his feet”.
