Bayer 04 away to Gladbach in DFB Cup Round Two

In a repeat of last season, Bayer 04 have drawn Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DFB Cup 2018/19: In the second round of the domestic cup competition, the Werkself are away to Bundesliga rivals from the Rhine. That was the outcome of the draw held at the German Football Museum in Dortmund on Sunday evening.

Gina Lückenkemper, sprinter with TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen and double medal winner at the recent athletics European Championships in Berlin, picked the Werkself out as the fifth-last ball in the draw held at the football Museum in Dortmund on Sunday evening for an away tie at league rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach. The second round of the cup will be played on 30 and 31 October – with four games at 18.30 CET and four at 20.45 CET  on both nights.

That means that Heiko Herrlich's team can wreak revenge for yesterday's opening defeat in the Bundesliga in two months time. Last season, the Werkself knocked the Rhine rivals out of the DFB Cup – that came in the Round of 16  with  a 1-0 victory just before Christmas at Borussia Park. "An exciting draw. Of course, we have good memories of the cup game last season. We want to repeat our success at Gladbach. It's a huge challenge," said the Werkself head coach after the draw. Gladbach beat Oberliga side BSC Hastedt 11-1 in the first round of  the DFB Cup.

Tickets for the cup away game are planned to go on sale on 11 September.
