FCB take on Dortmund in last sixteen
Borussia Dortmund! The next cup cracker! After beating RB Leipzig in the second round FC Bayern will take on Dortmund in the DFB Cup Round of 16. Former Bayern captain Stefan Effenberg drew the lots under the auspices of Peter Frymuth, vice president of the German FA (DFB). Effenberg handed the record cup winners a home match against Borussia Dortmund. The draw was staged at the German Football Museum in Dortmund on Sunday evening.
"Let's see what tie Effe will hand us on Sunday. I hope it'll be a home match," commented Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after Wednesday's victory away to Leipzig, and his wish was fulfilled on Sunday.
The Round of 16 will be played on 19 and 20 December, with the exact times to be announced in the next few days. The Bavarians downed Chemnitzer FC 5-0 in the first round before beating Leipzig 5-4 on penalties.
