1860 Munich Progress In DFB-Pokal
Substitute Fabian Greilinger scored late to help 1860 Munich progress in the DFB-Pokal
1860 Munich 2 – 1 Hertha Berlin
Starting the match in a back and forth battle it was an effective counter attack that saw 1860 Munich open the scoring when Efkan Bekiroglu played Musa Barrow through on goal with the Gambian international converting the chance in the 14th minute. Both sides continued to produce chances in an even display up until the break.
Hertha Berlin striker Daishawn Redan scored early in the second half to draw level with a placed shot past 1860 Munich goalkeeper Marcin Bulka to get his side back into the match. The goal from Redan would be in vain when a scramble in front of goal from a corner saw 1860 Munich substitute Fabian Greilinger score in the 82nd minute. After conceding, Hertha Berlin became desperate and aggressive, picking up multiple yellow cards but they were unsuccessful as 1860 Munich came out victorious.
