Dortmund dumped out of DFB Pokal cup
Dortmund were dumped out of the DFB Pokal cup 4-2 on penalties, following a 3-3 draw after post-match penalties.
Lucien Favre: “It was no surprise that it was going to be a difficult match against Werder Bremen. After Bremen took an early lead, we controlled the game. They played very compactly.
“It was difficult to find the gaps. We played with patience and the equaliser at 1-1 before the break was deserved. Bremen were always dangerous.
“The goal we conceded at 3-3 was a little unnecessary but that’s all part of sport – as are illnesses for our players in February. We hope Marco Reus can play on Saturday. But we cannot say for sure at present.
“We’ll carry out a test the day after tomorrow.”
