The road to the DFB Cup final in 2016 is paved with an away match in Bremen. The FC Bayern women’s team were delivered the news of the quarter-final draw on Sunday and will have to get past recently-promoted Werder Bremen if they want to have a chance to repeat their 2012 Cup triumph.

For FC Bayern, this is the first Cup match against the team from the north but not one to be taken lightly despite their newcomer status. Bremen reached the quarters with a 3:0 win against VfL Bochum, an 8:0 win against TuRa Meldorf and a 3:1 victory against SV Meppen. FC Bayern, meanwhile, eliminated European champions FFC Frankfurt in the last round by a score of 2:0 and 3:0 against MSV Duisburg before that.

The match will take place on December 8/9 with the final being held on May 21st, 2016 in 1. FC Köln’s Rhein-Energie Stadium.
