19.03.2008: DFB Cup — Dortmund reaches final after 3-0 against Jena

Brazilian midfielder Tinga helped book Borussia Dortmund’s place in next month’s German Cup final as both goal-scorer and provider in the 3-0 semi-final win over ten-man Carl Zeiss Jena on Tuesday. They will play the winners of Wednesday’s semi-final between Bayern Munich and VfL Wolfsburg in next month’s final in Berlin.

The 30-year-old put the home side ahead in the 13th minute when striker Mladen Petric produced a bullet header which was saved by Jena’s goalkeeper Wassili Chomutowski, but Tinga was the first to react and slide the ball home.

And the Brazil international produced a cool pass on 70 minutes which Dortmund midfielder Florian Kringe fired home, but when Khomuovski parried his save striker Diego Klimowicz followed up to make it 2-0 on 71 minutes.Petric made it 3-0 just three minutes from time with a well-taken strike.

Second-division strugglers Jena, who are just one from the bottom of the table, found themselves down to ten men when Czech midfielder Jan Simak was shown two yellow cards in quick succession which led to the subsequent red midway through the second half.
