The day: December 3rd 2013

The time: 22:18 CET

The moment:Full time in Schalke's Veltins Arena. Hoffenheim secure a 3-1 away win. Gisdol's side had travelled to Gelsenkirchen as rank outsiders against the Champions League participants, but a stunning first-half performance with goals from Kai Herdling, Kevin Volland and Roberto Firmino had given TSG a commanding 3-0 lead that S04 failed to turnaround.

The consequence:Hoffenheim have reached the quarterfinals of the German Cup for the sixth time. The draw gave TSG the home tie they desired, as they were pitted against VfL Wolfsburg in the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena. The fight for a place in the semi-finals is on Wednesday, February 12th 2014 at 19:00 CET.
