Partly due to a missed penalty kick by Wout Weghorst, VfL Wolfsburg was eliminated by RB Leipzig on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the DFB-Pokal.

The striker slipped when he wanted to lash out from 11 meters and shot high over.

With his miss, Weghorst failed to give Wolfsburg the lead in the first half.

Only after the break did Leipzig take control of the game.

Yussuf Poulsen made the opening goal in the 63rd minute, shortly after Justin Kluivert was substituted at Leipzig.

Just before time, Hwang Hee-chan signed for the 2-0.

Holstein Kiel, the number two in the 2. Bundesliga, also joined the last four.

Rot-Weiss Essen from the 3rd League was beaten 0-3.

Previously, Kiel was too strong for Bayern Munich in the cup.

Borussia Dortmund already secured a place in the semi-final on Tuesday.

The other quarter final between Jahn Regensburg and Werder Bremen had to be postponed due to a number of corona infections with the 2. Bundesliga team.
