Dortmund (dpa/lhe) – lucky draw for Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt: The Hessians meet fifth division team Stuttgarter Kickers in the second round of the DFB Cup away from home. That was the result of the draw on Sunday in Dortmund. “We’re looking forward to a real traditional duel. We have respect for the Kickers, but our goal is very clear to reach the next round,” said Frankfurt’s sporting director Markus Krösche.
Second division Darmstadt 98 is facing a much more difficult task. The lilies have to play against Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach, but at least enjoy home advantage. The second round matches will be played on October 18th and 19th.
