- DFB Cup results
Bayern Munich (barely) won their game against fourth-tier side SV Rödinghausen, 2:1. Bayern dominated possession but had problems creating chances and was shaky on defense. In the end they did qualify for the next round and that’s all that counts in the cup.
In all other games we did not get an upset, all the favorites actually won and qualified for the nest round. The closest result was Augsburg’s 3:2 extra time win against Mainz. Wolfsburg also won their match against fellow Bundesliga team Hannover with 2:0.
Bayern’s close result shows how tough the cup is and that BVB should not underestimate Union Berlin today. Union is a tough opponent and have remained unbeaten this season just like Dortmund. With BVB probably rotating their squad a bit the rotation players have to show that they can get the job done. A victory is all that matters even if it might just be an ugly one.

- Peter Stöger talks about Aubameyang’s behavior
We all knew Aubameyang was a bit problematic at times and now ex-BVB coach Peter Stöger has revealed just how much PEA was a nuisance for the club. Speaking to Sport Bild (quotes in English from Mail Online) Stöger said the following:
Luckily for Dortmund they got a solid replacement last season with Michy Batshuayi and now this season with Paco Alcacer. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was great on the pitch while he was here but his off-field distractions were just too much in the end.
