Bayern Munich Avoid Bundesliga Rivals In German Cup Draw

Bayern Munich’s German midfielder Leroy Sane (2nd R) celebrates scoring the 4-0 goal with his team-mates during the German first division Bundesliga football match between FC Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt on October 24, 2020 in Munich, southern Germany.


Germany’s top clubs managed to mostly avoid each other in Sunday’s German Cup, last 16 draw with just two all-Bundesliga ties in Schalke away to Wolfsburg and Stuttgart hosting Moenchengladbach.

Should European champions and German Cup holders Bayern Munich beat Holstein Kiel in their second-round tie, postponed to January 13, they will face another second division side in Darmstadt on February 2 or 3.

Likewise, the winner of Bayer Leverkusen against Eintracht Frankfurt on January 12, also postponed from December, is away to Rot-Weiss Essen, the only remaining fourth-tier team.

Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig have drawn second division clubs in Paderborn and Bochum respectively.

The quarter-finals are scheduled to be held in early March with the final at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on May 13.
