The first tie of the quarter-finals had two heavyweights against each other as Gladbach hosted Dortmund at Borussia-Park.

Either side had their fair share of shots with the hosts edging the visitors 16-13 and maintaining 54 per cent possession.

Essen 0-3 Holstein Kiel

Scorers: Bieler 26′, Serra 28′, Mees 90′

The historic run for second-division side Holstein Kiel continues after they downed fourth-tier Essen to secure a spot in the semi-finals.

Despite the visitors only having six shots with three on target compared to the host’s 14, they made the most of their opportunities.

A penalty from Alexander Bieler opened up in the scoring after 26 minutes and then two minutes later, Janni Luca Serra doubled the lead.

Essen peppered Kiel’s defence with chances but couldn’t find a breakthrough. In the end, the third goal from Joshua Mees in the 90th minute secured the victory.

Yussuf Poulsen’s solo effort found the back of the net in the 63rd minute breaking the deadlock and also Wolfsburg’s impressive defensive record.

Later on, a goal from substitute Hwang Hee-chan in the 88th minute confirmed Leipzig’s spot in the semi-finals.
