In the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup, RB Leipzig plays at second division side Hannover 96, there is a Bundesliga duel between Bochum and Freiburg. Hamburger SV welcomes Karlsruher SC and Union Berlin plays against St. Pauli.
That was the result of the draw on Sunday in the German Football Museum, which was carried out as part of the sports show. Former Dortmund cup hero Norbert Dickel drew the lots for a short time instead of Felix Neureuther. The ex-ski star and today’s ARD expert had to pass because of his daughter’s corona infection.

And Dickel brought the neighbors from Bochum another home game in the quarter-finals. However, Leipzig is the favorite to win the cup, after numerous top clubs such as FC Bayern Munich, defending champions Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Mönchengladbach had left the competition. The Saxons were already in the final in 2019 and 2021.
For the second time in the history of the DFB Cup, four second division teams have reached the quarter-finals.
Two wins to the final
This means that the teams are still two wins short of the final in Berlin. The quarterfinals will be held in early March. According to the “Kicker”, the clubs will each receive around one million euros for reaching the round of the last eight teams.
