RB Leipzig face Wolfsburg in quarterfinals of German Cup

 RB Leipzig will face Wolfsburg in the quarterfinals of the German Cup after Sunday's draw, while Borussia Moenchengladbach will host Borussia Dortmund in the other all-Bundesliga tie.

Leipzig are second in Germany's top division while Wolfsburg are third and on a run of five straight wins in league and cup.

The other top flight side left in the competition, Werder Bremen, will travel to second-tier Jahn Regensburg as clubs eye a cup that looks much more winnable with Bayern Munich out of the way.

Bayern's conquerers at the last-32 stage Holstein Kiel have been rewarded for their penalty shootout win over Darmstadt in the last 16 with a trip to Rot-Weiss Essen, who play in the fourth division.

Essen will likely be no pushover however after having knocked out Bayer Leverkusen, Arminia Bielefeld and second division team Fortuna Duesseldorf in previous rounds.

Quarterfinal draw, matches to be played March 2 and 3:

RB Leipzig v Wolfsburg

Borussia Moenchengladbach v Borussia Dortmund

Jahn Regensburg v Werder Bremen

Rot-Weiss Essen v Holstein Kiel
