Terrific Tinga puts Dortmund in cup final

18 March 2008 22:46

BERLIN (AFP) - 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.

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 Vasili Khomutovski, 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.

The defeat in Dortmund was the end of the road for giantkillers Jena after they put VfB Stuttgart out of the quarter-finals with a dramatic penalty win.

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.

On Wednesday night, Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich will be looking to join Dortmund in the German Cup final at Berlin's Olympic Stadium on April 19 when they play VfL Wolfsburg.

It promises to be something of a grudge match with former Bayern coach Felix Magath in charge of Wolfsburg making a return to the Allianz Arena to face the man who replaced him, Ottmar Hitzfeld.
