Madness: Hertha manages the feat of losing a 4: 3 after a 2: 0.
Kempf misses the decisive penalty for Hertha. Braunschweig wins 6:5!
Hertha coach Schwarz: “We are disappointed. We did a decent job at times, but didn’t put the lid on it. In the end we weren’t smart enough. It’s our first game together, it’s a process. We had a lot of good things but also a lot of room for improvement in defence. Union is a different task and we will face it.”
Davie Selke: “It’s extremely bitter for us, we know how important this competition is for the club. We are extremely disappointed. We scored a lot of goals and created a lot of chances. We mustn’t talk bad about everything now. And we have to do better against Union.”
Braunschweig coach Michael Schiele (44): “In the cup, anything can always happen in our temple. We played with conviction and showed a good mentality. When it came to penalties, I told everyone that whoever feels good should go.”
Braunschweig remains the graveyard of the cup favourites. Hertha has now caught it in one of the first two rounds in Braunschweig for the third time since 2004.

Waldhof – Kiel 5:3 iE (0:0): For a long time, the two teams at Mannheim’s Carl Benz Stadium had agreed on the motto to offer the fans a nice kick without goals. But of course it can’t end like that in the cup.
First overtime – then penalty shootout! And the sensation: The third division team wins 5:3 and kicks out the second division team.
