Eintracht Frankfurt will host Darmstadt at Deutsche Bank Park on Tuesday (February 7) in the last 16 of the 2022-23 DFB Pokal.
The hosts kicked off their cup campaign with a 4-0 demolition of Magdeburg in August, with three players getting on the scoresheet, including Daichi Kamada, who scored a brace. Frankfurt then faced Stuttgarter Kickers in the next round and won 2-0 via first-half strikes from Randal Kolo Muani and Hrvoje Smolcic.
Frankfurt are five-time winners of the domestic cup, last lifting the trophy in the 2017-18 campaign. They have struggled in the competition since then, though.
Darmstadt, meanwhile, beat Ingolstadt 3-0 in the first round. They then picked up a well-deserved 2-1 win over Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, with Phillip Tietz and Aaron Seydel getting on the scoresheet. Darmstadt will now test their mettle against another top-tier side.
