Kiel beats Rot-Weiss Essen in duel of the giant killers in DFB Pokal

Holstein Kiel has qualified for the semifinals of the German cup tournament for the first time in club history. The number two in the Second Bundesliga was 3-0 too strong for fourth division Rot-Weiss Essen in the quarterfinals.

In Essen it was a battle between two giant killers. Rot-Weiss Essen, playing in the Regionalliga West, eliminated Bayer Leverkusen from trainer Peter Bosz 2-1 in the quarterfinals. Kiel caused a sensation in the second round by eliminating Champions League winner Bayern on penalties.

Essen – which already won the cup in 1953 and was in the final again in 1994 – started the game in good spirits, but Kiel soon took matters in hand.
