The First Round of Germany’s DFB Pokal Has Begun – Match Summaries
As for the individual match results, firstly, Schalke easily beat FC 08 Villingen, justifying their role as the favourites of the match.
Elsewhere, Union Berlin won against Turkgucu Munchen by scoring one goal and not conceding any, that is, keeping clean sheets.
Meanwhile, Wolfsburg barely escaped relegation by beating Preussen Munster in extra time. Though they were initially behind by 0-1 after a late Marcel Hoffmeier goal, they somehow recovered toward the death time.
All three of their goals came after the usual 90 playing minutes, with the first equalizer at 90’. Indeed, their third and last goal came at the very end, at 120+1 minutes.
Even so, eventually, it was Eintracht Frankfurt who gave us an unexpected outcome. The Eagles suffered a 0-2 defeat from a third division side Mannheim.
