Kaiserslautern goes to Berlin, Saarbrücken's fairytale ended again in the semi-finals

The story in this year's "cup" is in a way also fairy-tale for the second division Kaiserslautern, who triumphed in the cup for the last time in 1996, were champions two years later, and did not win anything after that.

The dreams of the club, which during the last three decades "wandered" from the second to the fifth German league, were interrupted again in the semi-finals of the Cup.

Likeable third league team Saarbrücken, just like in 2020, was stopped one step away from the finals - better than him was second league team and former champion Kaiserslautern, who won 2:0 away from home.

A place in the finals at the "Olympic Stadium" in Berlin was secured by Marlon Ritter in the 53rd minute for the team from the "Fritz Walter" Stadium after a big mistake by goalkeeper Tim Schreiber and Almami Toure 15 minutes before the end.

The story in this year's "cup" is in a way also fairy-tale for the second division Kaiserslautern, who triumphed in the cup for the last time in 1996, were champions two years later, and did not win anything after that.

The rival of Friedhelm Funkel's boys in the final will be the better of the duel between the leader of the Bundesliga Bayer from Leverkusen and another second division Dusseldorf.

That match is scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday) from 20.45:XNUMX p.m.
