Franck Ribery: Scored for holders Bayern

Holders Bayern Munich beat Hannover for the second time in 11 days. After winning 2-0 in the Bundesliga, the Bavarians saw off Mirko Slomka's side by a 4-1 scoreline at the Allianz Arena.

Thomas Muller, who scored a hat-trick in the opening round, grabbed a brace with the Bundesliga's all-time top foreign goalscorer Claudio Pizarro also on target.

Franck Ribery completed the rout to take Bayern through while Didier Ya Konan scored Hannover's consolation.

Hertha Berlin became the latest Bundesliga side to be dumped out of the DFB-Pokal after being beaten 3-1 by Kaiserslautern.

Despite taking the lead through Peter Niemeyer, Jos Luhukay's men capitulated in front of nearly 25,000 fans at the Fritz-Walter Stadion with Mohamadou Idrissou, Karim Matmour and Olivier Occean earning the second-tier Red Devils a place in the last 16.

Eintracht Frankfurt had no such problems with Takashi Inui and Stefan Aigner on target in a 2-0 win over Bochum, but they will not be joined in the draw for the third round by city rivals FSV Frankfurt, who went down 2-0 at home to Ingolstadt.

Third division Saarbrucken upset Paderborn 2-1 while Union Berlin won 1-0 in Osnabruck.

Benedikt Howedes headed Schalke into the next round with Jefferson Farfan and Max Meyer also on target in a 3-1 win at Darmstadt.

In the night's other all-Bundesliga affair, Freiburg gained revenge for their semi-final defeat to Stuttgart last season by winning 2-1 against the Swabians, thanks to goals from Matthias Ginter and Mike Hanke. Vedad Ibisevic hit Stuttgart's consolation.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
