FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Goalkeeper Rene Adler saved two penalties as Hamburger SV squeezed into the second round of the German Cup by winning a shootout over third-division Energie Cottbus.

Hamburg rallied to tie the game 1-1 in regulation and went ahead in extra time, only to see Cottbus level late for 2-2.

Also Monday, Heidenheim beat second-division rival Union Berlin 2-1, while fourth-tier Kickers Offenbach upset second-division Ingolstadt in the shootout following a goalless 120 minutes.

A header by Hamburg's Heiko Westermann from a free kick by Rafael van der Vaart in the 70th canceled out a second-minute penalty by Manuel Zeitz, given away by Adler. Van der Vaart then curled in a free kick in the 96th, but Sven Michel sent the match into the shootout by scoring in the 105th.
