FC Bayern's DFB Cup journey will continue at the Allianz Arena with a home game against SC Freiburg.

Second meeting in the DFB Cup
The record cup winners advanced to the last eight at the beginning of the month with a commanding 4-0 win at 1. FSV Mainz 05, while their upcoming opponents from Baden-Württemberg won 2-0 at SV Sandhausen. This will be just the second meeting between the two clubs in the competition - Bayern won 7-0 at SCF in March 2005.
The exact times for the quarter-finals will be announced in due course. The ties will be played from Tuesday 4 - Wednesday 5 April, with one game at 18:00 CEST and one at 20:45 CEST each evening.
