Borussia Dortmund Skip Germany Cup surprise thanks to two late goals


Borussia Dortmund, one of the top Bundesliga leaders, had the chance to place the local trophy in the first round against second-division striker Guerreter Verte before a late awakening led him to a 2-1 victory over extra time on Monday.

Marco Rios scored the winner in overtime for the second extra half after newcomer Axel Vittel equalized for Dortmund in the fifth minute of the injury time of the match. Coach Lucien Favre had a tense start to his career.

Dortmund will play in the group stage of the Champions League this season, but he was on his way to the German Cup when Sebastien Ernst scored for the hosts in the 77th minute.

But Vitsel grabbed the equalizer with a shot just moments before the end whistle and Rios saved the situation with a powerful shot to secure the win five days before the start of the new Bundesliga season.

Dortmund, which has reportedly spent about 70 million euros ($ 80.06 million) on new deals after the end of last season, had dominated from the start and could have ended the first half with at least several goals.

The scenario seemed to be repeated in the second half after Christian Policic hit the crossbar before the guests lost more chances to score in order to advance to the hosts.

Ernest scored from close range after a great team effort ended with a cross from Daniel Keita-Real into the Dortmund penalty area, which Ernst had netted.

Hertha Berlin and Freiburg, who are also in the first division, also qualified for the second round after beating Eintracht Braunschweig 2-1 and Cottbus on penalties.

Champions Eintracht Frankfurt suffered a surprise exit on Saturday against Ulm, who play in the lowest level of the league, while Bayern Munich won 1-0 at Dortherzernz / Esl, an amateur team.
