Borussia Dortmund found the back of the net for the 27th consecutive away game in the DFB-Pokal, thus extending a club record. Here are the facts about the match away to TSV 1860 München.

Dominant: The Black & Yellows had 24 shots on goal and only let their opponents have one. The corner ratio (15:2) was just as one-sided. ''You saw the gulf between the two divisions,'' said 1860 coach Michael Köllner. Borussia were also stronger in the tackle, coming out on top in 76% of challenges.

Asset: He scored the first goal, paved the way for the second (with the second-to-last pass) and provided the direct assist for the third; Donyell Malen wasn't just involved in all three of BVB goals, but also nine of their 24 shots on goal. All this despite the fact he was only on the pitch for 67 minutes. The DFB named him ''Man of the Match''. In his own words: ''That feels good, but not as good as the feeling of having helped the team.'' Edin Terzic was full of praise: ''Donny was unstoppable in one-on-one situations.''

Ball magnet: The stats showed that BVB had 1,021 touches of the ball, with 145 of them going to Nico Schlotterbeck. The centre-back also played more passes than anyone else, with 139. An impressive 97% of them arrived safely at the feet of teammates!

Goals guaranteed: BVB have scored at least one goal in their last 27 road games in the cup. This is the longest such run in club history. The last goalless away game dates back to 27 February 2013, when the Black & Yellows lost 1-0 at Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

Last line of defence: Marco Hiller may have been at fault for BVB's third goal, but he nonetheless prevented his team from suffering an even heavier defeat. The 1860 Munich keeper kept out eight shots on target! Down the other end, Gregor Kobel didn't have a single save to make! (br)
