Commentary

That is all for tonight folks, thanks for joining us. Goodbye!
Magdeburg did themselves proud for the majority of the match, especially the first-half as they tried their best to score a goal against a team placed two divisions higher than them. However, it was not to be and they will now return to league action this weekend. 
After a slow start, Dortmund finally got the job done and in the fashion expected of them tonight. Bosz's side went into the game in poor form but the superior quality finally told in the end at the MDCC-Arena.

Yellow Card
Borussia Dortmund
66' Sokratis Papastathopoulos is the latest man into the referee's book.

Goal

47' GOAL Dortmund - Philipp takes his time before playing in Isak and the striker remains calm under pressure to slot the ball home.
46' Dortmund get the game underway at the start of the second-half.
The home side should be proud of their display in the first 45 minutes and they will need to keep their heads up if they are to fight back. Dortmund will want a second goal early on as the home crowd continue to believe a shock is on the cards.
After a steady first 45, Dortmund finally showed their class and opened the scoring thanks to a fine team move. Castro had been on the pitch just a matter of seconds but his impact could move Dortmund closer to the next round of the DFB Pokal.

39' Yarmolenko is once again denied but his dribbling inside the box causes chaos but his cross is tame and Magdeburg clear the danger.
38' Hammann has been busy so far tonight at the back but his latest involvement is to shoot from 30 yards out, the less said about that the better.
35' Worrying signs for Dortmund boss Bosz as Mahmoud Dahoud looks in trouble. He appears to have suffered a neck injury and is signalling that he wants to come off.
34' Dortmund have a penalty claim of their own waved away as Philipp is brought down in the box but the referee urges the two sets of players to move on.
30' Dortmund are going through the motions here and struggling to get going. Bosz's side look to be feeling sorry for themselves after missing two key chances and confidence within the camp is down after a poor few weeks.
26' Short break in play at the MDCC-Arena as Hammann clashes with Isak after making a tackle towards the halfway line.
23' Dortmund go close to opening the scoring as Shinji Kagawa breaks free and lofts the ball into the path of Andriy Yarmolenko but the winger sees his shot blocked by Brunst.

15' It is still early days but Magdeburg are starting to get more joy in midfield, with Dortmund forced to give away cheap free-kicks to try and stop them in their tracks.
10' Tempo is a little slow so far and the home side are lucky to be still on level terms but they will fancy their chances if the speed of the game does not improve.
7' As expected, Dortmund are dominating possession but the home crowd are enjoying themselves so far!

Tonight's TEAM NEWS coming up...
Peter Bosz's Dortmund have won just one of their last five games in all competitions, with the German giants drawing two and losing two in recent weeks. This DFB Pokal clash will be a welcomed break from the Bundesliga, following their 2-2 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt last time out.
Magdeburg have won four of their last five games in the German third division and they sit second at the moment. They come into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Unteraching but home advantage at the MDCC-Arena will give them a much needed boost tonight.
Tonight's clash will give Magdeburg the chance to play against the big boys, with the third division outfit looking to pull off a huge upset. Jens Hartel's men will be up against it but Dortmund come into this game in poor form.
