Berlin: German champions Bayern Munich will play amateur fifth division side Noettingen in the first round of the German Cup this weekend.

Munich coach Pep Guardiola is likely to ring the changes for Sunday`s match, just five days before the new Bundesliga season kicks off.

Cup holders Wolfsburg also face lower-league opposition in third-division Stuttgarter Kickers.

Matches start on Friday night with top-flight Darmstadt and Augsburg up against fourth-division opposition Erndtebrueck and Elversberg respectively.
