This tie had been scheduled to take place last month, but was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Jahn squad.

This is the first time in Jahn’s entire history that they have reached the last eight of Germany’s domestic cup.

It represents an excellent achievement for a club which was competing in the fourth tier of German football as recently as 2016, especially having beaten Bundesliga side FC Koln on penalties in the previous round.

The winner between Jahn Regensburg and Werder Bremen will face off with RB Liepzig in the semi final,with Dortmund and Holstein Kile playing in the second semi final.

While survival is the club’s primary aim this season, the opportunity to reach the semi-final of the DFB-Pokal by beating Werder Bremen on tonight  is the type of one which a club of their size may have to wait several years to have again.

Only Bayern Munich have won the DFB-Pokal more times than Bremen’s impressive tally of six in their history, with Florian Kohfeldt hoping to add to that tally at the end of this campaign.

Having only survived relegation in the Bundesliga after overcoming Heidenheim in a playoff last season, Kohfeldt looks to have guided Bremen to safety this time around, with a seven-point gap currently between themselves and 16th-placed Koln.

As such, the quarter final fixture against Jahn is likely to become the 38-year-old’s short-term priority. Indeed, Bremen have a proud history in this competition, with luck seemingly on their side this season having drawn four consecutive sides outside of the Bundesliga.

However, Kohfeldt will be keen to guard against complacency within his ranks ahead of the trip to Regensburg on Wednesday, with progressing to the semi-final far from a formality.

The winner  will face off with RB Liepzig in the semi final, the  other semi final match up will pit Dortmund against Holstein Kiel.
