Bayern Munich into German Cup finalThe Bayern Munich on Tuesday qualified to the final of the German Cup by beating (6-1) in the semifinals at Wolfsburg in the Allianz Arena, and will now face the winner of the match to be played tomorrow Freiburg and Stuttgart.

Bundesliga champions already, the Bavarians won with authority with a triplet of Mario Gomez in the final match (minutes 80, 82 and 86).

Opened the scoring before the Croatian Mario Mandzukic (17) and had widened the gap Dutchman Arjen Robben (34) and the Swiss Xerdan Shaqiri (50). The goal was the work of Brazilian visitors Diego, which gave hope to his team (2-1) at half-time (45) with a hard shot from outside the area.

With a spectacular setting in the Bavarian modern stadium, the home team hit from the beginning, willing to leave no opportunity for a possible surprise.


During much of the game the danger came from the right. So the first goal came when Shaqiri began a transition and put the ball into space for Robben, who first crossed for Mandzukic opened the scoring.

Shortly after Wolfsburg could tie in their first chance with a shot from Japanese Makoto Hasebe rejecting a corner with the Brazilian central chest Dante.

Bayern quickly made it two with a combination, again, between Shaqiri and Robben, major players in the game.

Bayern came forcefully that it lacked Wolfsburg to score. The Brazilian Naldo cut differences came close with a header off of a corner, with Manuel Neuer beaten, it was very close to one of the posts.

Finally it was his compatriot Diego, with a hard shot with the outside of the foot, which surprised and cut Neuer before half-time differences.

The visitors came out with confidence in the second half, ready to give the big surprise, and within minutes besieged the Bavarian area. But the momentum was short-lived because Bayern ruled in the 50th minute.

Robben again, from right, starred with a pass from the end line to the edge of the area for Shaqiri, shot set, sealed the classification of the Munich for the final.

With a 3-1 deficit, Wolfsburg had only to turn to attack the comeback attempt, but far from close on the scoreboard, paid for his bravery with three goals on the counterattack in the final stretch.

Mario Gomez ((79), who had just entered the field by Mandzukic, completed a transition back with speed and quality conducted by Shaqiri to make it 4-1.

The striker signed his double in 82 after the ball through Bastian Schweinsteiger. The same association helped the German international achieve a hat-trick in seven minutes (86) and closed the scoring.
