A debut double from Mario Gomez put Bayern Munich on course for a comfortable win over Spvgg Neckarelz in the German Cup.
Gomez made his first competitive start for Bayern against the sixth division side on Sunday and scored twice in a 3-1 victory.
Neckarelz switched the tie to Hoffenheim and were rewarded with a bumper 30,000 crowd.
The minnows managed to hold out the 14-time Cup winners for 51 minutes, although Bayern were guilty of some dreadful first-half finishing.
Gomez, who made a summer move from Stuttgart, eventually broke the deadlock from Bastian Schweinsteiger's pass before doubling Bayern's lead with a 57th-minute penalty for handball.
Although Christian Fickert was sent off for a second bookable offence, the part-timers pulled one back through Heiko Throm with 10 minutes left.
But Hamit Altintop restored Bayern's two-goal lead late on to send the Bavarian giants into the second round.
Cup holders Werder Bremen began their defence in style, winning 5-0 at second division Union Berlin.
There were two goals apiece for Ivorian Boubacar Sanogo and Bolivian Marcelo Martins, making his debut on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, with Brazilian Naldo the other goalscorer.
Meanwhile, Hannover 96 became the second top-flight side to be dumped out in the first round as they lost 3-1 at fourth division Eintracht Trier.
Jan Rosenthal gave Hannover a half-time lead but Martin Wagner, Josef Cinar and Sierra Leonean striker Sahr Senesie scored in the final 30 minutes to give Trier a famous victory.
The other top-flight victims were Mainz, who lost 2-1 at fourth division VfL Lubeck on Friday.

And so we have a new leader in La Liga, a team who at one stage had been eight points behind their rivals. Carlo Ancelotti has certainly got his Real Madrid side firing, still unbeaten in 16 league games, including six matches where they've scored four or more.
Appointing Felix Magath might just be the best bad idea that Fulham have ever had, writes Adam Bate.
