Eintracht stun Schalke to set up final with Bayern
Eintracht Frankfurt's Luka Jovic scored a 75th minute winner to stun host Schalke 04 1-0 Wednesday and earn his manager Niko Kovac a date with Bayern Munich, the club he will coach from next season, in the German Cup final. Eintracht, losing finalist last year, will get their chance for silverware again when they take on overwhelming favourite Bayern, 6-2 winner against Bayer Leverkusen Tuesday, in the final in Berlin on May 19. The 20-year-old Jovic stabbed in from a corner against the run of play to set up an extraordinary final clash for Kovac. The Croat this week signed a three-year contract at Bayern from next season, leaving Frankfurt angry with the Bundesliga champion over the poaching of their coach, who has turned them from relegation candidate into European hopeful this season. The game at Schalke lacked the fireworks of Bayern's semi-final and needed more than an hour to catch light with the host having the far better chances. Guido Burgstaller twice came close and forced a few superb saves from Lukas Hradecky but they could not convert any of them before their opponent struck from a set piece. Eintracht were left with 10 men in the 81st minute when substitute Gelson Ferdandes, who had only been on the pitch for 33 seconds, was shown a straight red card for a rough challenge on Leon Goretzka. Schalke tried desperately to find an equaliser and actually had the ball in the net deep into stoppage time only for the referee to rule it out for handball. RESULT Schalke 04 0 Eintracht 1 (Jovic 75)
