Bayern Munich will be out to avenge their pre-season Super Cup defeat at VfL Wolfsburg after Germany's top clubs were pitted together in the second round of the German Cup.

Bayern lost to Wolfsburg on a penalty shoot-out in the German Super Cup final a fortnight ago, but the Bundesliga's top two teams last season will meet again in Wolfsburg on October 27 or 28th after being drawn together.

"There are easier draws," quipped Bayern's director of sport Matthias Sammer after his side's 5-0 rout of Hamburg on Friday night kicked off the new season.

"We lost there in the Super Cup, accordingly we have amends to make."

The draw has thrown up other tasty all-Bundesliga clashes with Schalke at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach, while Werder Bremen are at home to Cologne.

Selected German Cup second-round fixtures (to be played October 27 or 28):

Wolfsburg v Bayern Munich; Viktoria Cologne v Bayer Leverkusen; Aue v Eintracht Francfort; Carl Zeiss Jena v Stuttgart; Schalke v Moenchengladbach; Borussia Dortmund v Paderborn; FSV Frankfurt v Hertha Berlin; Mainz v 1860 Munich; Darmstadt v Hanover; Freiburg v Augsburg; Werder Bremen v Colog.
