Today’s topic has little to do with Leverkusen’s 11-1 win over Pirmasens in the DFB Pokal. For die Werkself to beat a fifth tier club is to be expected, and after three, four, or maybe even five goals, margin of victory eventually becomes meaningless. Pirmasens’ defending was appropriate for an Oberliga Suedwest side, and once Patrick Helmes scored his second, you had a feeling the floodgates were about to be opened. They soon were, and Leverkusen scored five goals in nine minutes. Hats off to them for playing well, but I won’t look far into it.
