While the Bundesliga game between VfL Bochum and VfB Stuttgart (in the live ticker) is still running and shortly before the game between TSG Hoffenheim and FC Schalke 04 starts (kick-off 7:30 p.m., in the live ticker), roll the remaining four balls with RB Leipzig, SC Freiburg, Eintracht Frankfurt and the Stuttgarters who are still active in them through the large plastic bowl.
These will be drawn this Easter Sunday by national handball coach Alfred Gislason, who acts as the lottery fee. This had specially missed the HBL top game between THW Kiel and SC Magdeburg.
“The problem is when I’m sitting in the hall, everyone is watching me. There’s a lot of scrutiny to see if I show any emotion when one team or the other scores a goal. It’s always a problem. That’s why I got the invitation also gladly accepted for the cup draw,” said Gislason to “Bild”.
DFB ambassador Thomas Hitzlsperger acts as draw manager. From 7 p.m. it gets exciting!
