Bayern to face city rivals 1860 in last eight

Bayern have been handed the draw so many at the club desperately wanted in the DFB German Cup quarter-finals, after Women's World Cup winner and former Bayern star Simone Laudehr picked out the TSV 1860 'Lions' to face the 13-times winners. The tie will be played on 26 or 27 February.

"Obviously, this is a cracking draw, something Munich football fans have been looking forward to for years," Bayern boss Ottmar Hitzfeld declared. The sides last contested local bragging rights just over a week ago in the 203rd Munich derby, a mid-season warm-up which ended with honours even at 1-1. "The whole city will be buzzing about this, and we're really looking forward to this derby," Hitzfeld continued.

<b>Guaranteed sell-out</b>

Mark van Bommel was equally delighted at the news. "Unbelievable! Super, super, super," the Dutch ace exclaimed. "It's the best thing that could happen to Munich. This derby beats the lot, perfect!“ Bayern were drawn as the home side for the quarter-final tie, influencing a number of factors from the distribution of the tickets through to the choice of match ball.

In the other ties, Borussia Dortmund entertain second division 1899 Hoffenheim, Bundesliga champions and last year's finalists VfB Stuttgart welcome Carl Zeiss Jena, and Hamburger SV travel to VfL Wolfsburg.
