Hertha Berlin lost 3-1 to Kaiserslautern.

A review of Wednesday night's action in the German DFB-Pokal.

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.

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.

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.
