RB Leizpig reached the semi-final of the DFB Pokal Tuesday evening at the expense of VfL Wolfsburg (2-0). Especially Wout Weghorst will leave a nasty aftertaste to this competition: the Dutchman missed a penalty kick.
After more than an hour of playing, Yussuf Poulsen put Leipzig on a 1-0 head start. Invaller Hee-Chan Hwang made it 2-0 just before time.
Justin Kluivert was a basic player at Leipzig. He was replaced just before the opening hit.
Holstein Kiel to last four
Earlier in the evening Holstein Kiel already reached the semifinals of the German cup. The number 2 of the Second Bundesliga won the away match at Rot-Weiss Essen, 0-3 on Wednesday, and the home club, which previously eliminated the ‘big’ Leverkusen, will be on the fourth level.
After half an hour, Kiel was already at 0-2. First Alexander Mühling used a penalty kick, then the second hit came to the name of Janni Serra. Joshua Mees scored again in the final minutes for the visitors.
Kiel had previously, after penalty kicks, champion and defender Bayern Munich eliminated. The club has never been in the semifinals before.
On Tuesday already reached Borussia Dortmund the last four. The quarterfinal between Regensburg and Werder Bremen has been postponed due to several corona infections at Regensburg.
