DFB-Pokal: Schalke away to VfL Wolfsburg on a Wednesday night

On Friday (15 Jan), the DFB released the exact timings for the DFB-Pokal’s last 16 schedule. FC Schalke 04 will play VfL Wolfsburg on Wednesday, 3 Feb. The away game will kick off at 18:30 CET.


The Lower Saxony side have beaten FSV Union Fürstenwalde (4-1) and SV Sandhausen (4-0) to get to this stage of the competition, while the Royal Blues have seen off 1. FC Schweinfurt 05 (4-1) and SSV Ulm 1846 (3-1).

In the history of the DFB-Pokal, FC Schalke 04 and VfL Wolfsburg have crossed paths three times, albeit with four games in total. In round one of the 1970/1971 season, the game in Wolfsburg finished 2-2, so a replay was arranged in Gelsenkirchen a few days later. The Knappen won the replay 3-1 in the competition’s first ever penalty shootout.

In the last 16 of the 2007/2008 season, the game between these two sides also went to penalties, with the Wolves this time winning 5-3. The most recent cup meeting between Schalke and Wolfsburg was three years ago in the quarter final. Schalke won in the VELTINS-Arena thanks to a single Guido Burgstaller goal (1-0).
