First round results

Eintracht Trier 0–3 Borussia Dortmund  

Borussia Dortmund attacker Shinji Kagawa scored a brace and newcomer Andre Schürrle got his first goal for the club as BVB eased into the second round away to Trier. Thomas Tuchel's charges started brightly, and once Kagawa had opened the scoring in the eighth minute the outcome of the game was never in doubt.

Zwickau 0–1 Hamburger SV  

New Hamburg signing Alen Halilovic enjoyed a dream debut for the Red Shorts, scoring the only goal of the game in the 70th minute, just seven minutes after entering the pitch. The Bundesliga side dominated the vast majority of the encounter but could not put away their chances to give themselves greater breathing room.

1. FC Magdeburg 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt (Frankfurt won 4-3 after a penalty shoot-out)  

Eintracht Frankfurt needed a penalty shoot-out to get past 1. FC Magdeburg, after Branimir Hrgota's early goal was cancelled out late on. Makoto Hasebe and Omar Mascarell missed their spot-kicks too, but fortunately for the Eagles, their hosts were even less accurate in the MDCC-Arena.

SpVgg Unterhaching 3-3 1. FSV Mainz 05 (Mainz won 4-2 after a penalty shoot-out)  

1. FSV Mainz 05 needed a penalty shoot-out to beat SpVgg Unterhaching after a remarkable late comeback from the Bavarians forced extra-time. Mainz appeared to be heading into the second round when goals from Jhon Cordoba (21'), Fabian Frey (64') and Yunus Malli (88') gave them a 3-1 lead, but their hosts scored two late goals to level. Giulio Donati was sent off in extra-time, but Mainz made no more mistakes with two penalty misses for Unterhaching seeing them beaten.

1. FC Germania Egestorf-Langreder 0-6 TSG 1899 Hoffenheim  

Bayer 04 Leverkusen made hard work of booking their place in the second round with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez and Karim Bellarabi scoring in a 2-1 win at SC Hauenstein. The fifth-division hosts showed no sign of the back-to-back defeats which had blighted the start to their league season as they pushed Roger Schmidt's men all the way.

SC Hauenstein 1-2 Bayer 04 Leverkusen  

Bayer 04 Leverkusen made hard work of booking their place in the second round with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez and Karim Bellarabi scoring in a 2-1 win at SC Hauenstein. The fifth-division hosts showed no sign of the back-to-back defeats which had blighted the start to their league season as they pushed Roger Schmidt's men all the way.

Bremer SV 0-7 SV Darmstadt 98  

SV Darmstadt 98 were unable to take too much joy out of their 7-0 win over Bremer SV since they also lost Aytac Sulu to what appeared to be a serious injury. Antonio Colak (18', 45', 58') netted a hat-trick with Marcel Heller (40'), Jerome Gondorf (56') and Sven Schipplock (87') providing the other goals for Norbert Meier's men, with an own goal rounding things off.

Sportfreunde Lotte 2-1 SV Werder Bremen  

Bremen got to within touching distance of the final last year, but their DFB Cup adventure ended in round one this time with Zlatko Junozuvic's goal not enough to prevent Viktor Skripnik's men from going down to a 2-1 defeat at Sportfreunde Lotte.

SSV Jahn Regensburg 1-1 Hertha Berlin (Hertha won 6-4 after a penalty shoot-out)  

Hertha Berlin needed a penalty shoot-out to get past Jahn Regensburg, although they were just minutes away from elimination in normal time before Mitchell Weiser brought them level. Salomon Kalou kept his cool to convert the decisive spot-kick after Rune Jarstein saved Regensburg's first sudden-death effort.

FC Erzgebirge Aue 0-0 FC Ingolstadt 04 (Ingolstadt won 8-7 after a penalty shoot-out)  

120 minutes were not enough to separate Aue and Ingolstadt, and 14 penalties could not separate the two teams either. In the end, it was Tobias Levels who converted the decisive penalty to put the Bavarians through on a dramatic night.

FC Carl Zeiss Jena 0-5 FC Bayern München  

FC Bayern München are through to the next round of the DFB Cup after a convincing 5-0 victory against Regionalliga side Carl Zeiss Jena.

Robert Lewandowski (3’, 34’, and 43’ minute) scored a hat-trick in the first half to put the reigning champions 3-0 up after 45 minutes. Arturo Vidal (72’), and Mats Hummels (77’) scored the other two goals.

FV 1893 Ravensburg 0-2 FC Augsburg  

Over in Ravensburg, FC Augsburg cruised into the next round with a 2-0 victory against fifth-tier FV Ravensburg.

Ja-Cheol Koo put Augsburg ahead just inside the half-hour, and Raul Bobadilla removed any doubt as to who would advance, making it 2-0 with a little over 20 minutes left.

SV Drochtersen/Assel 0-1 Borussia Mönchengladbach  

In the far north of Germany, Borussia Mönchengladbach had their work cut out against Regionalliga outfit SV Drochtersen/Assel.

The Champions League participants only progressed to the second round of the DFB Cup thanks to Julian Korb's second-half strike.

BFC Preussen 0-7 1. FC Köln  

Gladbach's great rivals 1. FC Köln had no such trouble, making light work of sixth-division BFC Preussen.

The goals came from Konstantin Rausch, Anthony Modeste, Dominic Maroh, Marcel Risse, Artjoms Rudnevs and Yuya Osaka, who weighed in with a brace.

FC 08 Villingen 1-4 FC Schalke 04  

Markus Weinzierl got off to a winning start in his first competitive outing as coach of FC Schalke 04.

The Royal Blues sauntered into the next round thanks to goals from Dennis Aogo, new signing Breel Embolo, a 35-yard screamer from Johannes Geis and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

SV Babelsberg 03 0-4 SC Freiburg  

Newly-promoted SC Freiburg warmed up nicely for their return to the top flight with a comfortable victory in Babalsberg.

Vincenzo Grifo put the visitors ahead from the spot after just 20 minutes and that lead was never seriously threatened. Grifo grabbed a second goal, sandwiched in between strikes from Janik Haberer and Florian Niederlechner.

Dynamo Dresden 2-2 RB Leipzig (Dynamo Dresden won 5-4 after a penalty shootout)  

Bundesliga new boys RB Leipzig fell at the first hurdle after a real cup fight in their tie at neighbours Dynamo Dresden. Ralf Hasenhüttl's side looked to be cruising at half-time after racing into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Marcel Sabitzer and Domink Kaiser.

But the home side hit back after the break to level the scores and take the game into extra-time. There were no further goals and the match went down to penalties. The Bundesliga 2 outfit held their nerve from the spot, converting all their penalties.

FSV Frankfurt 1-2 VfL Wolfsburg  

VfL Wolfsburg are through to the next round after defeating promoted Bundesliga 2 side FSV Frankfurt 2-1. Frankfurt's Steffen Schäfer gave Wolfsburg the lead with an own goal in the fifth minute, before Dutch striker Bas Dost made it 2-0 to Wolfsburg 11 minutes later.

Frankfurt made it 2-1 shortly after half-time, but a confident performance by the Wolves never left any doubt, and despite the narrow scoreline, Wolfsburg were always in charge.
