2nd Round in the Capital

DFB-Pokal against Berlin

1. FC Köln will travel to the German capital to take on Hertha BSC in the second round of the DFB-Pokal. The match will take place either on the 24th or 25th of October.

The second round is set. While FC got their 2017/18 Bundesliga campaign started against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the draw for the second round of the DFB-Pokal was taking place in a TV studio. In what has already become a familiar sight for FC fans, 1. FC Köln will once again be playing a cup game on the road. FC have been drawn against Hertha BSC of the German capital. The match will take place either on the 24th or 25th of October. 

"It is a funny draw, I must say," said Peter Stöger after the match against Borussia Mönchengladbach. "I am sure they are thinking the same in Berlin. But when you want to play in the final, you also have to beat the opponents in front of you. Whether you meet them in the second round or the quarterfinal, the challenge is the same. We are up for it, but it is by no means an easy draw."
