Dortmund prevail, Chelsea, City, Spurs win

Borussia Dortmund survived a scare to make the German Cup last 16 while Chelsea FC, Manchester City FC and impressive Tottenham Hotspur FC were among English League Cup winners.

German Cup
Borussia Dortmund survived a scare to win 2-0 at TSV 1860 München and reach the last 16 along with fellow UEFA Champions League hopefuls Bayer 04 Leverkusen. It was goalless after 90 minutes but at the end of the first period of extra time, Marco Reus was fouled by 1860 midfielder Dominik Stahl, who was sent off, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted the resultant penalty. Henrikh Mkhitaryan sealed victory on 107 minutes.

Leverkusen saw off DSC Arminia Bielefeld 2-0 thanks to Son Heung-Min and Sidney Sam, and Hamburger SV, who today appointed Bert van Marwijk as coach, won 1-0 against SpVgg Greuther Fürth. Top-flight 1. FSV Mainz 05 fell 1-0 at home to second division 1. FC Köln but there was progress for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, FC Augsburg, VfL Wolfsburg and 2. Bundesliga team SV 1916 Sandhausen.

The remaining eight ties are on Wednesday, with holders FC Bayern München at home to Hannover 96.

English League Cup
Manchester City FC gained revenge for their FA Cup final defeat by relegated Wigan Athletic FC last May with a 5-0 win as England's European competitors entered the competition in the last 32 stage. Edin Džeko made it 1-0 at half-time for City and after the break there were two goals from Stevan Jovetić and one each by Yaya Touré and Jesús Navas. The other UEFA Champions League hopefuls in action, Chelsea FC, won 2-0 at Swindon Town FC with Fernando Torres and Ramires on target.

Elsewhere, Gianfranco Zola's second-tier Watford FC were two up against Norwich City FC only to lose 3-2 in extra time, while in the all-Premier League ties, Tottenham Hotspur FC triumphed 4-0 at Aston Villa FC, West Ham United FC edged Cardiff City FC 3-2, and Fulham FC defeated the division's only unbeaten team, Everton FC, 2-1. Sunderland AFC, who sacked manager Paolo Di Canio on Sunday, overcame Peterborough United FC 2-0, and Southampton FC and Hull City AFC also won.

Holders Swansea City AFC visit 2011 winners Birmingham City FC and the only other two victors in the last five years meet as Manchester United FC host Liverpool FC in the pick of the remaining five ties on Wednesday.
