Wout Weghorst has also presented his excellent shape in the last few weeks in the German cup. VfL Wolfsburg got rid of himself in the eighth finals of the DFB-Pokal of Bundesliga fence closer Schalke 04.
VfL Wolfsburg-Schalke 04 1-0Because Klaas-Jan Huntelaar had to cancel because of injury, Weghorst was the only Dutch striker on the field. The four-time Orange-International had already scored seventeen official goals this season and got a chance to score number eighteen just before rest. That succeeded with the necessary effort: Weghorst came across goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann from the penaltytip, but still slipped in the rebound. That 1-0 turned out to be decisive in the end. Wolfsburg-keeper Koen Casteels still had to go to jail in the final phase, but Schalke did not score and is allowed to focus on his fight against degradation.
RB Leipzig-VFL Bochum 4-0RB Leipzig is the number two of the Bundesliga the big favorite in the cup tournament, following the sensational eliminations of Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen. At least those Roten Bullen have reached the last eight, after a trouble-free victory at Second Bundesliga Club VfL Bochum. Amadou Haidara entered the 1-0 early and Marcel Sabitzer used a penalty at a stroke of rest. Yussuf Poulsen gave the victory in the final phase even more cachet with his 3-0 and 4-0.
