Bayern Munich has the chance to exact revenge for its Bundesliga loss to Hertha Berlin after the clubs were drawn together in the last 16 of the DFB-Pokal.

Hertha beat Bayern 2-0 at the Olympiastadion in September and will hope for a repeat when it entertains the Bundesliga champion in the Pokal in February.

That defeat was Bayern's first under Niko Kovac and came amid a four-match winless streak that exposed the new head coach to early pressure.

Bayern has since compiled a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions, including a 2-1 win over fourth-tier Rodinghausen in the previous round of the Pokal, and will be eager to advance in its bid to reclaim the trophy they last won in 2016.

Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund, which moved four points clear over the weekend, is set to entertain Werder Bremen, while Schalke hosts Fortuna Dusseldorf and RB Leipzig welcomes Wolfsburg.
