In their German Cup quarter-final match, Borussia Moenchengladbach lost 0:1 (0:0) to Borussia Dortmund.
Jadon Sancho scored the only goal of the game in the second half. The hosts had a chance to tie the game in extra time, but they squandered it and were eliminated from the competition.
Jadon Sancho put the ball into the penalty area in the ninth minute. Marco Reus was the receiver of the ball. The German did not waste any time and opened fire. The ball, however, flew over the crossbar. Another good behavior had to wait until the 36th minute. Then Erling Haaland made a goal-scoring attempt. The shot, however, flew past the goalpost.
Marcus Thuram scored for Borussia Dortmund in the second minute of added time, but the goal was disallowed by the referee due to offside. The game ended in a scoreless draw.
Haaland got the ball in the penalty area eight minutes after the switch of sides and scored with a shot from the center of the net. The joy was short-lived, as referee Sascha Stegemann canceled the goal following VAR analysis. The reason was a misdemeanor.
The hosts had a chance in the 59th minute. Ramy Bensebaini struck without a response, but Marwin Hitz successfully intervened.
BVB made a brilliant move seven minutes later. The ball was passed to Jadon Sancho after a counterattack. He charged half the pitch with it and beat the opposing goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation. Mats Hummels had a chance to make it 2-0 in the 84th minute, but his shot went wide of the post.
When it seemed that nothing important will happen in this match, Mahmoud Dahoud got a second yellow card in the third minute of added time and had to leave the field prematurely. Given the shorthanded situation, BVB did not lose the lead and won the match 1-0, becoming the first team to reach the German Cup semi-finals.
