Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund cruise through in DFB Pokal

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the hero on the day, as Borussia Dortmund thrashed Rielasingen 4-0 in their DFB Pokal encounter.

Eighteen-time winners Bayern Munich strolled into the DFB Pokal second round with a comfortable 5-0 away victory over Chemnitz, courtesy Robert Lewandowski's brace and goals from Kingsley Coman, Franck Ribery and Mats Hummels.

Record signing Corentin Tolisso set up Bayern's third goal, sending in a low cross for Lewandowski to tap in his second of the afternoon.

Bayern won a free-kick on the edge of the box in the 79th minute, and whilst the players stood over the ball, Ribery can clearly be seen untying the shoelaces of referee Bibiana Steinhaus!

"The most important thing today was reaching the second round", Lewandowski told Sky Sport. "It is always important to get the first goal and try to play well".

"We tried to keep playing at a high pace", he said.

Marc Bartra opened the scoring early, and Aubameyang added another from the penalty spot.

In his absence, Aubameyang struck a hat-trick against Rielasingen to take the holders through to the second round of the competition, and he was asked about Dembele after the game. "We did exactly what we had planned and what we had to do to get into the next round".

"It certainly was not a top game from us, but, by and large, we can be satisfied".

Hoffenheim, which hosts Liverpool for the first leg of its Champions League qualification playoff on Tuesday, edged third-division Rot-Weiss Erfurt 1-0 thanks to Nadiem Amiri's second-half strike.

Also, 10-man Eintracht Frankfurt defeated fourth-tier TuS Erndtebrueck 3-0, Mainz won at fourth-tier Lueneburger SK Hansa 3-1, Cologne beat fifth-tier Leher TS 5-0, Werder Bremen won 3-0 against third-division Wuerzburger Kickers, and there were wins for second-division sides Fortuna Duesseldorf, Heidenheim, Jahn Regensburg and Kaiserslautern.
