Bayern, Dortmund handed home semi-final ties

Bayern Munich's chances of retaining their DFB-Pokal title were boosted when they drew second-tier Kaiserslautern in the semi-finals.

The Bavarian giants won the 2012-13 edition with a 3-2 triumph over Stuttgart and sealed their place in the last four of this year's competition with a 5-0 thrashing of Hamburg on Wednesday.

They will host Kaiserslautern in their semi-final after the 2. Bundesliga outfit stunned Bayer Leverkusen in extra time of their quarter-final clash.

Borussia Dortmund's reward for a 1-0 quarter-final win at Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday is a home semi-final of their own.

They will host Wolfsburg, who won 3-2 at Hoffenheim on Wednesday.

Dortmund last won the competition in 2012, when they beat Bayern Munich 5-2.

And a similar final could be on the cards with both giants handed home ties.

The semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal will be played on April 15 or 16.
