Borussia Dortmund see off 1860 Munich challenge to advance in DFB Cup

whatsappmailcopy-link

First half goals from Donyell Malen, Jude Bellingham and Karim Adeyemi helped Borussia Dortmund begin their DFB Cup challenge with a comfortable first-round victory against 1860 Munich.

1860 Munich 0-3 Borussia Dortmund
Goals: 0-1 Malen 8', 0-2 Bellingham 31' (assist: Reus), 0-3 Adeyemi 35' (assist: Malen)

A little over a week away from their big Bundesliga kick-off against Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund were hungry to hit the right notes at third-tier 1860 and they began life under returning coach Edin Terzic with three players making their competitive debuts in Black-and-Yellow. Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck formed a new central defensive pairing while Karim Adeyemi settled in in attack. It was schemer Malen who would prove tormenter in chief in an opening half which the visitors dominated, however. The Dutch trickster - a constant danger down the left - fired a fine opener that hit both posts before going in while he would later start the move that put BVB two goals up. With Malen freeing Marco Reus, the Dortmund captain slid the ball across the face of goal for Bellingham who tapped in. Soon afterwards, 1860 goalkeeper Marco Hiller allowed Adeyemi's speculative shot to slip underneath his body and Terzic's team were cruising.

Trailing by such a deficit, Michael Köllner's men had little chance of turning the tide and, a Yannick Deichmann volley wide of the upright, the hosts rarely threatened after the restart. The lively Youssoufa Moukoko hounded Hiller's goal before Raphael Guerreiro drew a superb two-handed stop from the under-siege custodian. Reus then almost took full advantage of a lapse in the home defence as BVB probed but his failure to increase his side's lead would ultimately matter little to a Dortmund side that took their place in the hat for the second round with relative ease. Next up, the Bundesliga, with Leverkusen set to visit Signal Iduna Park next weekend.

ALMOST DONE

There's an air of formality to this tie now, which is understandable given the scoreline and the effort both teams have put in. Although they've cruised here, Dortmund have always looked like they have another gear which they have failed to utilise. We may see those turbo chargers come on against Leverkusen in next Saturday's Bundesliga Matchday 1 encounter.

TAKE A BOW, MALEN

Malen has put in a hell of a shift here and he comes off, lathered in sweat, to be replaced by Bynoe-Gittens. A goal, an assist and a ton of running for Malen tonight. Hats off to that man

RARE 1860 CHANCE

Yannick Deichmann smacks a left-footed volley at the Dortmund goal and his effort is not that far away, although it looked like Kobel had his right-hand post covered.

HILLER DENIES GUERREIRO

Guerreiro pings a long-range shot to the far post but Hiller is alive to it, scrambles across and makes a fancy, diving two-handed save. He'll want to see the photo of that stop later.

BVB LOOKING FOR MORE

Youssoufa Moukoko accepts Marco Reus's through ball and is in, until some last minute 1860 defending saves the day for the hosts.

BACK UNDERWAY

The referee signals the start of the second half. Can 1860 make any inroads into this scoreline or will BVB add another?

DORTMUND ON THEIR WAY

A very one-sided Cup tie reaches the halfway point with Bundesliga giants Dortmund in free-flowing form. Goals from Donyell Malen, Jude Bellingham and new striker Karim Adeyemi have BVB with one foot in the second round.
39'

HOSTS FAIL TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

Niklas Süle concedes a foul and 1860 have a very rare chance to put the ball into the danger zone. Jesper Verlaat's delivery is poor, however, and the opportunity goes awry.
34'

BVB HIT CRUISE CONTROL

It's another one for BVB, but this one is on Hiller in the 1860 goal. The visitors sweep forward and the ball spreads right to Adeyemi. The debut boy drills a low, weak shot at goal but it slips under Hiller and rolls in. Dortmund are cruising.

1860 DREAMING OF UPSET

Home coach Michael Köllner said his third-tier side, "Can't influence how Dortmund play," while admitting that, "a lot of things have to come together [for us] to have a chance." Nonetheless, the magic of the Cup means there's always an outside opportunity of an upset.

BVB AIMING TO AVOID SURPRISE

The five-time DFB Cup champions Dortmund last lifted the trophy as recently as 2021 but after slumping out to second tier St Pauli at the round of 16 stage last time out, the Black-and-Yellows will be keen to avoid any such surprise at 1860 this evening.
