Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich will both face second division sides in the next round of the German Cup after Sunday's third-round draw with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs.

German league leaders Bayern travel to face VfL Bochum in the next round on December 20 and 21 while defending Bundesliga champions Dortmund are at Fortuna Duesseldorf.
