Borussia Dortmund 7 Paderborn 1

On Wednesday the moment we had been waiting for finally came when we took up our seats in the Westfallen Stadion to see Borrusia Dortmund take on Paderborn in the DFB Pokal. Everything went well and despite it being an early kick off in a mid week cup game the stadium was still rocking. One disappointment was that Aubameyang and Reus weren't playing after they had single handedly taken Augsburg apart at the weekend. In came Adrian Ramos and Gonzalo Castro for the two.

Things got off to a bright enough start with only Ramos's first touch and offsides saving Paderborn. However, things took a turn for the worse when Burki lost his head on 21 minutes and a grateful Lakic put the visitors ahead. Our worries didn't last for long though, as just 4 minutes later Adrian Ramos finally did what he was supposed to do and equalised from an angled shot. On 30 minutes the turnaround was complete when Castro scored after a clever back heel from Kagawa. It was 3-1 by the break when Kagawa scored a brilliant solo goal.

If you thought BVB might let up then you were wrong they continued to come out firing in the second half and on 55 minutes Ginter was tripped in the box and Gundogan stepped up to slot home (shown below).

Castro got another on 58 and then Mkhitaryan did all the work for Piszcek to slot home on 87 before Piszcek returned the favour for Mkhitaryan to make it 7 and send us home happy after the celebrations had subsided.
