FCB drawn away to southern rivals Stuttgart

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Dec 22, 2011 12:10 am

Bayern will visit south German rivals VfB Stuttgart in the last eight of the DFB Cup. The quarter-final draw, made live on national TV by Germany international Melanie Behringer, and supervised by German national team manager Oliver Bierhoff, means 15-time cup winners FCB renew rivalries with Bruno Labbadia's men just a few weeks after winning the corresponding league fixture at the Mercedes-Benz Arena 2-1.

Jupp Heynckes' side reached the last eight for the tenth time in the last 11 seasons thanks to Tuesday night's tight but deserved 2-1 win away to VfL Bochum. Stuttgart defeated Hamburg by the same score on Wednesday evening in front of a 38,600 crowd at their home ground.

The sides met in last season's cup competition too, a thriller of a last sixteen tie in Stuttgart which ended 6-3 in Munich's favour. All in all, FCB will be wary of their top flight rivals, but confident of a place in the last four after losing just one of their last ten meetings with the Swabian outfit.

Wednesday night's draw saw Heynckes' men avoid the other big names in the hat, as champions Borussia Dortmund were paired with fourth division giant-killers Holstein Kiel, and high-flying Borussia Mönchengladbach were handed a trip to Hertha Berlin.

The quarter-final tie will be played on Tuesday 7 or Wednesday 8 February 2012. This season's final is on 12 May, and will be played as usual at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.
