Borussia Dortmund have been drawn against Borussia Monchengladbach in the second round of the DFB-Pokal, while holders Bayern Munich will travel to second-tier side Bochum.
Dortmund saw off lower-league opposition Uerdingen in the first round but have a far tougher test to come against Gladbach in one of two all-Bundesliga ties.
Bayern continue the defence of their crown with a trip to Bochum, who they beat en route to winning the competition in 2015-16.
Elsewhere, last season’s beaten finalists RB Leipzig will take on top-flight rivals Wolfsburg for a place in round three.
The two remaining semi-professional sides in the competition, FC Saarbrucken and Verl, were paired with Koln and Holstein Kiel respectively in Sunday’s draw.
The games will be played on October 29 and 30.
