It's David vs. Goliath in the German Cup, as Lotte face the biggest game in their history against Dortmund. Who will set up a semifinal clash with the mighty Bayern?
The DFB has confirmed that the Cup quarterfinal between Lotte and Dortmund, which was called off due to an unplayable pitch, is to be played on March 14. However, it won't be played in Lotte, but Osnabrueck instead.
Lotte are this season's upstarts in the German Cup, having beaten two Bundesliga teams along the route to the quarterfinals. The third-division club have been rewarded with a money-spinning tie against Dortmund.
Christian Pulisic, Andre Schürrle and Marcel Schmelzer found the net as Dortmund made light work of Sportfreunde Lotte. Thomas Tuchel's side will now face Bayern Munich in the last four.
Both Bundesliga teams on display on Friday night are in the hat for the second round but neither were entirely convincing against lower league opposition. Elsewhere, there was a thrilling win for Dynamo Dresden.
