Dortmund and Schalke ease through
October 31, 2012
Mats Hummels put the Bundesliga champions ahead in the 22nd minute and Marcel Schmelzer made it two ten minutes later. Mario Gotze added a third four minutes after the break and Julian Schieber added to the hosts' misery with a fourth in the 79th minute.
Aalen did finally have something to cheer, but Michael Klauss' 87th-minute effort was mere consolation.
