Bayern need penalties to beat 10-man Leipzig in German Cup
Bayern Munich edged past 10-man RB Leipzig 5-4 on penalties on Wednesday to advance to the German Cup round of 16 after drawing 1-1 over 120 minutes. Timo Werner's penalty was saved by Sven Ulreich after all nine previous efforts had succeeded as Bayern continued their successful run under coach Jupp Heynckes ahead of the two sides' Bundesliga meeting on Saturday. Leipzig, who had Naby Keita sent off in the 54th minute for a second booking, should have scored during a strong first-half performance. Emil Forsberg wove his way into the Bayern box but keeper Sven Ulreich did well to save in the 24th minute, and another similar run should have earned him a penalty when Arturo Vidal clipped the Swede's legs. But they got their spot-kick in the 68th minute when Yussuf Poulsen was brought down by Jerome Boateng. Forsberg converted it to put Leipzig ahead but Boateng took his revenge five minutes later, chipping over a beautiful cross for Thiago Alcantara, who headed in the equaliser. Leipzig keeper Peter Gulacsi kept his side alive with a string of sensational saves as Bayern, who also hit the post, took complete control. They scored all five of their penalties before Ulreich saved Werner's spot-kick to send them through. Cologne, without a win and in last place in the Bundesliga, beat Hertha Berlin 3-1 to advance, while VfB Stuttgart also advanced with a 3-1 victory over second-tier Kaiserslautern. There was also joy for Werder Bremen, in 17th place in the league, who beat Hoffenheim 1-0.
