The second round of the DFB-Pokal kicked off yesterday (without Bayern Munich, who will play in January) and below are the results:
- FC Augsburg 0 - 3 RB Leipzig
Quick take: Willi Orban and Angelino each had a goal for Die Roten Bullen. Somehow Julian Nagelsmann is making this brand of football work where his defenders are as effective attacking as his forwards.
- FC Köln 1 - 0 VfL Osnabruck
Quick take: Anthony Modeste scored in added time of the first half to spare the Billy Goats from potentially being upset.
- SSV Ulm 1846 1 - 3 Schalke 04
Quick take: Schalke won! It’s probably time to check and see if Hell has officially frozen over.
- TSG Hoffenheim 2 - 2 SpVgg Greuther Furth (SpVgg Greuther Furth win 7-6 on penalties)
Quick take: Hoffenheim could use Angelo Stiller and Sebastian Hoeneß’s seat is probably getting a little hot.
- TSV Eintracht Braunschweig 0 - 2 Borussia Dortmund
Quick take: The prototypical “I take of my kids” win. As Chris Rock once said, “that’s what you’re supposed to do.”
- Dynamo Dresden 0 - 3 SV Darmstadt 98
Quick take: Bayern Munich loanee Lars Lukas Mai played all 90 minutes in helping his side wrap up a clean sheet.
- SV 07 Elversberg 0 - 5 Borussia Monchengladbach
Quick take: Five different players scored for Die Fohlen in a convincing win.
- FC Union Berlin 2 - 3 SC Paderborn 07
Quick take: HUGE upset here. Congrats to SC Paderborn, whose team doctor Lutz Mahlke is a friend of BFW.
