Dortmund Through To DFB Cup Quarter Final

Injury-plagued Borussia Dortmund didn’t raise any eyebrows when they visited Third League side Saarbruecken in the German DFB Cup.

BVB coach Juergen Klopp made six changes to the recent 3-1 away win in Mainz. Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Blaszczykowski and Lewandowski all booked a place on the bench, whilst Bender and Reus were out with new injury niggles.

However, Dortmund’s ‘B-side’ found their rhythm early and it was Schieber who gave them the lead with a bulling header in the 19th minute.

The Lewandowski replacement Schieber also added an assist to his tally when he was setting up the 2-0 for Hofmann just after half time.

Klopp, who had indicated that Dortmund want to take the DFB Cup very serious, will be happy with his team’s performance. The Black and Yellows produced 27 shots and had 84 percent possession.

In the other DFB Cup fixtures Champions League participant Schalke surprisingly lost 3-1 at home to Hoffenheim and Hamburg and Kaiserslautern also made their way into the quarter final.

Champions League holder Bayern Munich are facing a tricky away fixture to Augsburg today.
