Erling Haaland's penalty just before the hour mark reduced the arrears but St Pauli hung on to reach the last eight and secure a first win over Dortmund for 33 years.

"We caused ourselves several problems in the opening 15 minutes and also conceded a goal straightaway. That's when it gets difficult," head coach Marco Rose said.

"The way we went about trying to score the equaliser in the first half was a little rash. After going 2-0 down, we adjusted a few things. But the key issue is how we, as the holders, started this cup battle. We didn't get that right."
