Bayern Munich suffered a humiliating exit from the DFB-Pokal as the Bavarians were beaten 2-1 by Bundesliga side Saarbruggen in what was arguably the surprise of the night.
Saarbruggen dropped a “bomb” in the German Cup, which, although it competes in the third division of the German league, left Bayern Munich out of the tournament, which it defeated at home 2-1.
The Bavarians may have taken an early lead through Miller, but Sondheimer equalized in stoppage time and in the sixth minute of stoppage time Gauss completed one of the tournament’s biggest upsets in recent years.
Eintracht Frankfurt, one of PAOK’s opponents in the Europa Conference League, scored a goal in each half and with the final 2-0 victory over Victoria Cologne, they got the “ticket” for the “16” of the German Cup.
