Not even Leon Bailey's 0-1 in extra time, in the 105th minute, was enough for Bayer Leverkusen to advance to the round of 16, traced back in the second half of extra time by Rot Weiss Essen, from Regional West, the fourth division of the country, to continue with his feat (2-1). Oguzhan Kefkir, in 108, and Simon Engelmann, in 117, with a right hand inside the area, made the feat of Essen possible, whose footballers celebrated it with the same magnitude of their triumph, lying on the grass, some without a shirt, euphoric about what was achieved against the fifth classified in the Bundesliga (2-1) .

Until the final penalty shoot-out, meanwhile, came the duel between two Bundesliga 2 teams: Holstein Kiel -which previously eliminated Bayern Munich- and Darmstadt. Janni-Luca Serra put the lead in front and Serdar Dursun tied for second and forced extra time, which also ended 1-1. In the eleven meters, Kiel was the best, winner on the eighteenth pitch.

On Tuesday night there are two other matches of this round of the competition (Borussia Dortmund-Paderborn and Werder Bremen-Greuter Furth), which will be completed with another four games this Wednesday: Leipzig-Bochum, Wolfsburg-Schalke 04, Regensburg-Cologne and Stuttgart-Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Werder Bremen also advances

Goals from Kevin Mohwald, in the first half, and Felix Agu, in the second, sealed their place on Tuesday in the quarterfinals of the German Cup for Werder Bremen, who won 2-0 against Furth Bundesliga 2.
