MONDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2014: The draw has been made for the Semi-Finals of this season’s DFB-Pokal, Germany’s premier domestic cup competition ahead of the Quarter-Finals being played in a fortnight’s time.
Borussia Dortmund have been handed a potential home tie against Bayern Munich should both clubs progress, which has been provisionally scheduled for 25th March. Dortmund host 2-Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern in their Quarter-Final tie on 26th February, while Bayern are at home to local rivals Nürnberg.
None of last year’s semi-finalists have made the last eight of the competition this year, with only two of last year’s last eight (Bayern and Hamburg) making the same progress this time round. Holders Bayer Leverkusen went out at home to Erzebirge Aue in the Second Round.
