Schalke advances in German Cup

December 21, 2010

Jefferson Farfan scored late to give Schalke a 1-0 win over second-division leader Augsburg on Tuesday in the round of 16 of the German Cup.

Raul Gonzalez created Farfan's goal in the 84th minute in a lackluster performance by Schalke.

Hoffenheim's Gylfi Sigurdsson and Demba Ba scored in a 2-0 win over last-place Bundesliga team Borussia Moenchengladbach to advance to the quarterfinals.

Two matches were postponed because of icy conditions - Kickers Offenbach vs. Nuremberg and Koblenz vs. Kaiserslautern.
