DFB Pokal 2011, Second Round: Bayern Munich Run Riot, Bundesliga Sides Avoid Upsets

For the second consecutive day, no German top flight sides lost matches to lower division clubs. The entire second round of the 2011 DFB-Pokal has gone off without a hitch for the Bundesliga first division sides, except for the ones who were unfortunate and drew other Bundesliga teams. The third round of the competition will now feature the best from both the first and second divisions, which is sure to create a lot of intriguing matchups. There's some romance in small sides making deep cup runs, but it's hard to complain about high quality football matches getting made.

Bayern Munich 6-0 FC Ingostadt

There was a minor bit of intrigue surrounding this matchup in the USA, with Edson Buddle getting a start, but him and his team showed why they're in the second division on Wednesday night. Heralded 19-year-old starlet Takishi Usami scored a goal off the bench, just one of six in an absolute rout.

Hannover 96 0-1 Mainz

They needed extra time to do it, but Mainz are through in a minor upset, defeating Hannover at home on a 93rd minute goal by Andreas Ivanschitz. This one had some incredible late drama, as Mainz gave away a penalty in the final minute of extra time, but Hannover's Didier Ya Konan missed to put Mainz through.

Holstein Kiel 2-0 MSV Duisburg

If you like Cinderella stories and you think small sides making noise is the best thing about domestic cups, Holstein Kiel are the team to root for. Yes, they are top of the fourth division, but they're still a fourth division side. They play in a division with four reserve sides for Bundesliga clubs and two reserve sides for Bundesliga.2 club. And yet, they've defeated a 2.Bundesliga team that were not in the top flight too long ago, with Rafael Kazior and Fiete Sykora scoring their two goals in a win over Duisburg.

Karlsruhe 0-2 Schalke 04

No Neuer? No Fährmann? No problem. Youngster Lars Unnerstall has kept his shutout streak alive, keeping a clean sheet against Karlsruhe. The Bundesliga side left it late, but they were finally able to get a win with two second half goals, avoiding extra time. Klass-Jan Huntelaar netted in the 81st minute, then Joel Matip added the second goal two minutes later.

Rot-Weiss Essen 0-3 Hertha Berlin

Hertha looked like they were in trouble for a while, but made it look easy in the final half hour with three goals in the last 30 minutes. Gustavo Ramos, Pierre-Michel Lasogga, and Nikita Rukavytsya were the goal scorers.

Eintracht Frankfurt 0-1 Kaiserslautern

Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern almost had to go to penalties against recently relegated Frankfurt, as both teams were scoreless through 118 minutes, but the top flight side were rescued. 21-year-old Richard Sukuta-Pasu, who has not yet lived up to his teenage hype, scored the winner in the 119th minute to send his club to the third round.

FC Erzgebirge Aue 1-2 Nürnburg

Nürnburg looked like they were going to cruise to an easy victory when Alexander Esswein and Julian Weissmeier put the team up 2-0 in the second half, but Ronny König produced some late drama, pulling a goal back in the 78th minute. The second division side weren't able to find another, however, and the top flight Nürnburg are through to the next round.

VFB Stuttgart 3-0 FSV Frankfurt

Christoph Hemlein scored in the fourth minute for first division Stuttgart, playing at home, and effectively ended the game right then and there. Cacau and Ibrahima Traore provided the insurance goals.

DFB Pokal 2011, Second Round: Borussia Dortmund Dominate, Hamburg And Gladbach Sneak By

Tuesday's set of 2011 DFB-Pokal second round fixtures didn't provide any surprises, though a couple of Bundesliga sides received serious scares. All of the big clubs in action took the competition seriously, playing their first team squads regardless of opposition. Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg SV and Borussia Mönchengladbach all advanced past lesser opposition, though the latter two sides had to struggle.

Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-0 1860 Munich

Fortuna Dusseldorf are in good form in the 2.Bundesliga while 1860 are struggling, and that form was apparent on Tuesday. Though, the gap between the sides wasn't supposed to be this large. 1860 defender Collin Benjamin had a shocker, putting in an own goal and getting sent off as Fortuna striker Sascha Rösler scored the other two goals.

Heidenheimer 0-0 Borussia Mönchengladbach (Gladbach advances on penalties)

Despite playing their best side, including budding superstar Marco Reus, Gladbach couldn't manage a goal in 120 minutes of play. However, the shootout was kind to them and they avoided embarrassment with a 4-3 shootout victory.

RB Leipzig 0-1 FC Augsburg

One of the three football properties under the umbrella of drink magnet Red Bull, RB Leipzig are making huge strides in climbing the German football pyramid to get into the Bundesliga. However, the current Bundesliga side were too much for them today, with Daniel Brinkmann scoring his first goal of the season in Augsburg's win.

SpVgg Unterhaching 1-4 VFL Bochum

It's been a rough few months for Bochum, who lost a promotion playoff last spring and now sit mid-table in the 2.Bundesliga. However, they put on a show on the road today, scoring four goals and giving away two penalties, one of which was converted, in a wild match.

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Dynamo Dresden

This one was a little more one-sided than the scoreline indicates. Dresden were never in it, and Dortmund had all of the ball. Robert Lewandowski and Mario Götze scored the goals, while Lucas Barrios returned as a substitute. This game featured an unfortunate delay in the middle of the second half, caused by an idiot in the Dynamo supporters' section with a cap gun.

Eintracht Trier 1-2 Hamburg SV

Trier almost pulled off an absolutely massive upset, pushing HSV to extra time, but German international Dennis Aogo saved everyone the agony of penalties with a game-winning free kick goal in the 110th mintue.

SpVgg Greuther Fürth 4-0 SC Paderborn 07

These teams are both doing reasonably well in the 2.Bundesliga, so this score was a bit of a surprise. Fürth are an excellent side, though, and you're likely to see them playing in the Bundesliga next season.

Hoffenheim 2-1 FC Cologne

In the day's only matchup between two Bundesliga sides, Hoffenheim completed a comeback victory over Cologne, who are missing some key players due to injury. Mato Jajalo stunned the home side with a 6th minute goal, but they came back to win in regular time with goals from Chinedu Obasi and Knowledge Musona.
