Bayern to face Kaiserslautern in DFB-Pokal semifinal

Pep Guardiola's side reached the last four after completing a 5-0 (agg. 8-1) quarterfinal win over Hamburg on Wednesday

Bayern Munich's chances of retaining its DFB-Pokal title have been boosted after it drew second-tier Kaiserslautern in the semifinals.

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 (agg. 8-1) second-leg thrashing of Hamburg on Wednesday.

They will host Kaiserslautern in their semifinal after the 2. Bundesliga outfit stunned Bayer Leverkusen in extra time of their quarterfinal clash.

Borussia Dortmund's reward for a 1-0 quarterfinal win at Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday is a home semifinal of its own against Wolfsburg, which won 3-2 at Hoffenheim on Wednesday.

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