Leipzig – Wolfsburg 2-0
The game: Is that bitter! The Wolfsburg have not lost for ten games. Since their eighth they haven’t conceded a single goal. But the cup is known to have its own laws. The Wolfsburg disaster takes its course in the first half, Steffen, Mbabu and Co start better, but miss the best chances. Among other things, Steffen fails alone in front of RB keeper Gulacsi. Then follows the groundbreaking game scene: VfL goalgetter Weghorst runs to the penalty kick and slips away with his main leg. The ball? Flies for miles over the gate. Wolfsburg will continue to determine the game, but luck leases Leipzig. The red bulls make it through to the semi-finals through goals from Poulsen (63rd) and Hee-Chan Hwang (88th).
The goals: 63. Poulsen 1:0, 88. Hee-Chan Hwang 2:0.
RW Essen – Holstein Kiel 0-3
The game: And there were only 4. Kiel from the 2. Bundesliga is in the semi-finals of the DFB Cup! 26 minutes have been played, as Markus Schmidt points to the point. The referee lets himself be tricked by an extremely brazen keel swallow. To everyone’s amazement, the VAR does not intervene. Afterwards, Essen boss Uhlig is annoyed green and blue and speaks of a huge scandal after the end of the game. “Did everyone sleep here?” He asks angrily. It is the game-decisive scene, because Kiel confidently transforms the penalty and only two minutes later it makes it 2-0. The blow to the neck for the fourth division club from Essen.
The goals: 26. Mühling 0: 1, 28. Serra 0: 2, 90. Male 0: 3.
