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.

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.
