Bayern handed revenge mission in cup

FC Bayern München have been paired with FC Schalke 04 in the German Cup semi-finals.

Draw on Saturday
Bayer 04 Leverkusen will be at home to 1. FC Köln in the other semi-final, following the draw on Saturday which involved four top-flight sides for the first time since 1996. If Bayern and Leverkusen advance to the 11 May final in Berlin, Germany's World Cup warm-up friendly against Kuwait in Freiburg on 9 May may be cancelled because most of the national team play for these two sides.

Semi-final schedule
The semi-finals are scheduled for March 5 and 6, although it has yet to be announced which will be played on which day.
