Leipzig (AP) - Julian Nagelsmann sees the performance of second division football team Holstein Kiel in the DFB Cup as an example of games against FC Bayern Munich.

«Kiel was incredibly brave and of course has the significantly worse team and the significantly worse players.

But they were incredibly brave, incredibly ball-safe, they dared to do it, "said RB Leipzig's trainer on Thursday.

«One can take an example from Kiel.

I thought that was good.

I'll watch the game again too.

You can always pull something out. "

Kiel had thrown the German record champions on Wednesday evening in the second round of the DFB Cup.

The North Germans were behind twice, but fought their way 2-2 and won after a goalless extension on penalties.

Due to Bayern's end, other clubs are now placing high hopes on winning the cup.

"You don't have to get them out of the way, but you have to do your homework," said Nagelsmann.

Leipzig receives on 2/3

February second division VfL Bochum.
