Bayern smack six past Greuther Furth in the cup; Cologne fall at second division Augsburg; Schalke advance

Bayern Munich 6 – Greuther Furth 2 (DFB Pokal, February 10, 2010) Everything was going to plan for Bayern Munich when Ribery teed up Thomas Muller to fire the German giants ahead against second division Greuther Fuerth after five minutes. The lead though lasted just four minutes as visiting striker Christopher Nothe turned Demichelis and raced through on goal before producing a fine finish. Five minutes before the break the unthinkable happened as Bayern, hot off an eight game winning streak, fell behind to the minnows as Sami Allagui headed home a Muller cross to send the snowy Allianz Arena silent. (First half goals here.) Bayern had to wait until the 57th minute to equalise, Arjen Robben converting a penalty as dreams of the giant-killing began to fade. And three minutes later the comeback was complete as Bayern passed the ball around the Fuerth area before Franck Ribery applied the final touch. Bayern bagged their third goal in seven minutes to put the game to bed when Ribery teed up Philipp Lahm who cracked a deflected shot into the far corner. Ten minutes from time Robben and Thomas Muller combined as Bayern went 5-2 up, and at just before full-time Allagui header a corner into his own net for Bayern’s sixth.

Augsburg 2 – FC Cologne 0 (DFB Pokal, February 10, 2010) Second division Augsburg struck after two minutes against Bundesliga outfit Cologne when Michael Thurk turned in a cross from the right following a corner.

Osnabruck 0 – Schalke 1 (DFB Pokal, February 10, 2010) Kevin Kuranyi’s lone strike on the hour proved enough for Schalke.
