Borussia Dortmund to DFB Pokal final after historic first half | Foreign football

Borussia Dortmund has qualified for the final of the DFB Pokal with ease. That Schwarzgelben already settled before half time with 2. Bundesliga club Holstein Kiel (5-0). The meeting with RB Leipzig awaits in the final.




The home team, where super striker Erling Haaland was missing due to a muscle injury, took a nice record against Holstein Kiel: the team of Edin Terzić had already reached the final score before the break. Never before has a semi-finalist scored five times within the first 45 minutes. Giovanni Reyna (two goals), Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard and Jude Bellingham ultimately determined the final score at 5-0.

Dortmund thus remains in the race for the fifth DFB Pokal won in club history. Earlier it took the cup in 1965, 1989, 2012 and 2017. For opponent Holstein Kiel, a beautiful fairy tale came to an end. The number four of the Second Bundesliga eliminated leader and superpower Bayern Munich in January after penalties.

Borussia Dortmund will take on RB Leipzig in Berlin on 13 May, which reached the final thanks to a 1-2 victory over Werder Bremen.
