DFB-Pokal 3rd Round

Hello and welcome to ESPN's live coverage of the DFB-Pokal, the German Cup. Eintracht Braunschweig, the holders, will be playing today, but who else will?

Eintracht Braunschweig vs Bayer 04

Braunschweig, as we said, will play, and they will play Bayer Leverkusen. This should be interesting, the two sides will meet in the league in the next game after this, so this will be huge mentally.

Schalke 04 vs SC Freiburg

These two teams, like Braunschweig and Leverkusen, will meet soon after this cup match. Schalke are 7th in the Bundesliga after sacking Jens Keller and replacing him with Luciano Spalletti, and Freiburg are 11th.

1.FC Koln vs Erzgebirge Aue

Koln go into this game sitting second in the 2. Bundesliga, whilst Erzgebirge Aue are troubleld, in 15th despite reaching the promotion playoffs last year.

VfB Stuttgart vs FC Augsburg

VfB Stuttgart sit in 2nd in the Bundesliga, on top form, whilst Augsburg, recently relegated, have dropped to 3rd in the 2. Bundesliga. Stuttgart, under Torsten Lieberknecht, will be big favourites for this.

- GOAL! - Ádám Szalai - 11 - Schalke 1-1-0 SC Freiburg
1-0 to Schalke! Szalai is the scorer! Clemens could have got the cross in, but he was tackled by Eggen Hedenstad, and it fell to Szalai, who turned it in. 1-0 to Schalke.

- GOAL! - Thorgan Hazard - 23 - VfB Stuttgart 0-1 FC Augsburg
No one expected this to happen but Augsburg lead here in Stuttgart! On loan from Chelsea, it's winger Thorgan Hazard who puts them in the lead, against the run of play. A good goal too. He received the ball from Annan, beat Sorg and fired past Thorsten Kirschbaum, for 1-0.

- GOAL! - Richard Sukuta-Pasu - 37 - VfB Stuttgart 0-2 FC Augsburg
No one expected them to go a goal down - of course people didn't see 2-0 coming! Sukuta-Pasu, the former Bochum and Kaiserslautern man, is the scorer. It's the keeper, Manninger, with the assist, he lumped it long and his team mate was there on the end of it to fire in. That's 2-0!

- GOAL! - Sascha Molders - 40 - 1.FC Koln 1-0 Erzgebirge Aue
A goal late in the first half for Franco Foda's Koln! Molders scored it, latching onto Ujah's header to blast in after taking a touch, 1-0.

Eintracht Braunschweig 0-0 Bayer 04
Schalke 04 1-0 SC Freiburg
1.FC Koln 1-0 Erzgebirge Aue
VfB Stuttgart 0-2 FC Augsburg

- GOAL! - Stefan Kiessling - 46 - Eintracht Braunschweig 0-1 Bayer 04
Are Braunschweig headed out of the cup? Leverkusen are ahead here, Kiessling the scorer! Die Werkself caught Braunschweig napping, just 30 seconds into the half, Kiessling wasn't picked up and packed it into the corner. 1-0.

- GOAL! - Kevin Kratz - 56 - Eintracht Braunschweig 1-1 Bayer 04
That lead didn't last! Braunschweig had a number of good chances which they failed to convert, then Correia put it wide to Quiring, he cut in and teed up Kratz to pick his spot. That's the equaliser.

- GOAL! - Anthony Ujah - 56 - 1.FC Koln 2-0 Erzgebirge Aue
2-0 to Koln, that should be the game! Ujah gets his name on the scoresheet with this volley, poor defending from Erzgebirge Aue though.

- Jakub Sylvestr - 75 - 1.FC Koln 2-1 Erzgebirge Aue
Maybe that isn't the game - Aue are back in it! Brecko hadn't marked Sylvestr properly, he was clean through and his effort came off the post and in. He's rushing towards the net to get the ball and restart as soon as possible.

- GOAL! - 78 - Ádám Szalai - 78 - Schalke 04 2-0 SC Freiburg
And Szalai gets his second goal of the game, Schalke's second, which should win it. Draxler headed it down, Szalai gave it back first time and Draxler's cross picked him out at the far post where he headed past the keeper, Baumann.

- GOAL! - 79 - Mike Hanke - Schalke 04 2-1 SC Freiburg
And I stress, should win it. Freiburg have a goal back through Hanke. Darida played him through, but the defenders were catching up, only for a delightful shuffle through 2 of them and chip over the goalkeeper for 2-1. This makes for an exciting finale to the game.

- GOAL! - Timo Perthel (P) - 83 - Eintracht Braunschweig 2-1 Bayer 04
The comeback is complete - but not without controversy. The corner came in, and not much happened but the referee saw a foul by Kiessling, and Timo Perthel tucks home the penalty, though Leno did get a hand to it. A late goal, and it has clearly demoralised Leverkusen.

- GOAL! - Patrick Helmes - 89 - 1.FC Koln 3-1 Erzgebirge Aue
Patrick Helmes seals the deal, 3-1 to Koln! Suspicions of offside, the Aue players are furious, but it's a good finish from Helmes who picked up a loose ball to smash it straight in.

- GOAL! - Sascha Molders - 90+1 - 1.FC Koln 4-1 Erzgebirge Aue
And if that didn't seal it this one did. It's been a tight game but it'll look like total demolition from Koln in the papers tomorrow, 4-1 as Molders gets his second - a cheeky lob rom outside the box.


Quarter Final Draw
Really well written update as usual Louis, great result as well :)
Good results Louis, style :D

Braunschweig get son of a legend

Eintracht Braunschweig have announced a massive new transfer deal - a swoop for Danish midfielder Andreas Laudrup. Laudrup's dad, Michael, was also a footballer, who played for many of the world's best sides, such as both Real Madrid and Barcelona, and most recently managed Swansea until his sacking.

His dad is not the full extent of his footballing family, either. Michael's brother Brian played at Bayern Munchen, Fiorentina, AC Milan, and Rangers, whilst both brothers began their footballing careers at Vanlose - the former club of Finn Laudrup, who played for Denmark 19 times and scored 6. Also, Brian's son and Andreas' cousin Nicolai, currently plays for Lyngby BK.

Andreas Laudrup was born in Barcelona, whilst his dad played for FC Barcelona. However his career began back in Denmark, with Sollerod-Vedbaek in the Second Division. He then joined Lyngby, and spent two years in their youth team before another big transfer. This time he was on the move back to Spain, signing for his dad's former club Real Madrid. In their B team, he was regarded as a huge prospect, yet their hopes failed to materialise. He specifically requested to be called Andreas and not Laudrup as an attempt to release the burden of his father's success. However, he moved back to Lyngby for another year, before finally getting first team football with FC Nordsjaelland. In both 2010 and 2011, he captured the Danish Cup with Nordsjaelland, but in 2012, Laudrup won a much better trophy - not the Danish Cup but the Danish SuperLiga. During his time with Tigerne, he made 106 appearances and scored 10 times in 5 years, also spending the 2012/13 season on loan with French side ASSE, though he failed to make an appearance. Having been released, he moves to Braunschweig on a free transfer.

Laudrup is said to be ecstatic about the move to Germany.

"Of course when they asked I said I wanted to join. I think that Germany is a great footballing nation - one that my dad didn't play in - so I've always wanted to know exacty what it's like and play there. Braunschweig offered a chance to play in the Bundesliga, and in the Europa League, so I was happy to join.

I know that I won't be too familiar to some German fans but I want to change that. They might remember my uncle, Brian, playing for Munchen and Uerdingen here. I know they have a lot of good players so this will be a challenge for me - a great challenge - and I'm looking forward to it."

Laudrup was signed by Braunschweig in November though he has only just been registered. He will not be eligible to play the Europa League Group Stage's final match, though Braunschweig have already qualified.

Good signing, is he really ecstatic though? ;) because he isn't playing

December - Penalties galore!

Braunschweig ended the first half of the season with a win infested month. And a penalty infested month.

Timo Perthel could have bagged a hat trick against Leverkusen here. Having beaten Die Werkself in the DFB-Pokal thanks to a late Perthel spot kick, Braunschweig were optimistic going into this clash at the BayArena. 5 minutes in, they took the lead, Kevin Kratz's corner being turned in by Deniz Dogan at the near post. 10 minutes later and Braunschweig could have made it 2-0. Kratz tried the same corner routine but Antonio Rudiger tripped Dogan, though Timo Perthel missed his penalty kick, tipped wide by Leno. Then Leverkusen got a goal back to equalise through Nacer Chadli who latched on to a long past to blast in. Half time came and went, and as soon as the players came back onto the field - there was another penalty. This time Leverkusen's Stafylidis had crashed into Mirko Boland who was attempting to cross, and Timo Perthel made no mistake this time as he smashed it into the top corner. Ten minutes later came another penalty to Braunschweig and again Mirko Boland was fouled, this time by Lars Bender. Perthel calmly tucked home and the game looked set, but a tense finale ensued as former Braunschweig man Orhan Ademi headed home on his Leverkusen debut, having missed a lot of time out injured or on the bench.

Still winless, 1860 Munchen should have been no match for an in form Eintracht Braunschweig. But no. Die Lowen needed a lot of luck in the end as they could only get two late goals to win the game. It was a very uneventful game until the 82nd minute, where Gabor Kiraly kept out Kevin Kratz's effort but couldn't stop his rebound, and it was Kratz at the centre of attention again minutes later. He was fouled by 1860's Teixeira, but Timo Perthel's penalty kick was saved by Kiraly. Fortunately for Braunschweig, Perthel got the rebound to seal the 3 points.

As usual, Braunschweig made things a lot harder for themselves than they should have been. Hertha BSC were struggling, no doubt about it. Sitting just above the relegation zone with 14 points, Braunschweig should have breezed past them. But no. After a boring first half, Hertha seemingly decided to give Braunschweig the win, as Emanuel Pogatetz conceded a penalty seconds in to the second half. But Timo Perthel went for the cheeky chip down the middle which the goalkeeper saw coming and gathered easily. Perthel was immediately subbed. However, Deniz Dogan came to the rescue, nodding in the only goal of the game from a Kratz corner. Then two things happened. First, Hertha went down to 10 men. It was Pogatetz, who had given away the penalty, that was ejected, and though he had been booked already it was a straight red, for a two footed lunge at Gianluca Korte. Next, Braunschweig went down to 10 men. The goalscorer Dogan was the offender, his first booking coming after 70 minutes for stopping a counter attack illegally, and this one was similar. Before Alagui could even bring the ball down, Dogan stuck his leg out and brought him down, though with 10 on 10 Braunschweig held out for the 1-0 win.

What good games you had ! Good luck !
A very good month mate!
Great month, Braunschweig seem to be settled now!
Very nice month mate again for Braunschweig.
