Dieter Hecking: Tough draw for his troops

Dieter Hecking: Tough draw for his troops

Dieter Hecking's side were given the draw they were hoping to avoid on Sunday with an away game at the Allianz Arena now standing between them and a place in the Berlin final, yet the Wolves continue to harbour dreams of clinching their first trophy since winning the 2009 Bundesliga title.

"As anybody could imagine, this was not our dream draw," Hecking said. "But, if we want to win the cup, then we have got to beat Bayern."

Sporting director Klaus Allofs added: "From six permutations, we have got the worst one imaginable. Nevertheless, we will do all we can to make what seems to be impossible possible."

In the other semi-final, Stuttgart and Freiburg will meet in a Baden-Wurttemberg derby match at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Freiburg, who are also on course for a place in the Europa League via their Bundesliga position, may make it all the way to the capital without playing a single game at home, leading the club to respond to the draw with a touch of irony.

"We have had another look in the tournament rules and regulations, but we can't find anywhere where it states that Freiburg must always play away in the DFB-Pokal," a statement on their website read.

It is Freiburg's 10th away game in a row in the cup competition.

The ties will be played on April 16 and 17 with the winners meeting in the final in Berlin's Olympiastadion on June 1 - a week after the Champions League final in London.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
