DFB Cup Rd.2: HSV to Halleschen FC

The Rothosen have been drawn away to Halleschen FC in round 2 of the 2016/17 DFB Cup. Halle eliminated 1. FC Kaiserslautern in round 1.

HSV travel to face Halleschen FC in round 2 of the DFB Cup. The draw was made on German TV on Friday, following the 6-0 thrashing of Werder Bremen by reigning champions Bayern Munich in the official season-opening game on Friday night (August 26). The balls were pulled out of the hat by Germany Team manager Oliver Bierhoff.  HSV were the fourth team in the draw.
