That was the outcome of the draw held on Monday evening. The two clubs last faced each other in the Bundesliga on the last weekend when Bayer 04 ended up losing 3-0. 

The team coached by Malte Dresen now has an opportunity for revenge and the chance to reach the DFB Cup final for the first time. Dresen commenting on the draw: "SC Sand was the team we wanted in the draw. The whole squad is dreaming of the Cup final in Cologne. It definitely won't be easy as we saw in the league how dangerous Sand can be. We know we have to play better to beat Sand and will use that experience to win out at our home ground on 16 April." 

The second semi-final sees holders  VfL Wolfsburg take on SC Freiburg. That game will also be played on 16 April. Further details on the kick-off times and venues will be announced shortly. The final will be played in Cologne on 27 May.
