DFB Pokal – 2nd Round 2015/16 – Tuesday

Round two of the DFB Pokal, the biggest game of this round obviously being Wolfsburg v Bayern. Last season’s winner of the Pokal (and the Super Cup) against the league winners. There were no surprises, Wolfsburg being outclassed by Bayern once more. It took them a little over three minutes for them to put the game to bed. It wasn’t however the Robert Lewandowski show this time round, instead the goals were scored by Douglas Costa and Thomas Müller.

My favourite moment of the night was Manuel Neuer’s reaction to the third goal:

Unterhaching after knocking out newly promoted Bundesliga side Ingolstadt in the first round, continued their cup run by surprisingly beating 2.B side RB Leipzig 3-0. 1860 München are also still in the competition after beating Mainz 2-1. One big surprise of the evening was Eintracht Frankfurt losing 1-0 to Erzgebirge Aue. Even more surprising considering that they drew 0-0 to Bayern tonight. Consistency really isn’t their thing. That draw with Bayern is even more surprising when you take into account their woeful defensive record. One result I’m exceptionally pleased with is newly promoted Darmstadt triumphing over Hannover 96 2-1.
