Dortmund edges Frankfurt in German Cup

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — A late goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday and a place in the semifinals of the German Cup.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan's corner was headed over to the far post by Sebastian Kehl in the 83rd and Aubameyang sent a powerful header from close range past Sebastian Rode on the goal-line, with goalkeeper Kevin Trapp stranded in the far corner.

Until then, Eintracht had had the upper hand in the second half, after Dortmund had missed better chances in the first. In Wednesday's remaining quarterfinals, Bayern Munich travels to Hamburg, Hoffenheim plays Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen hosts second-division Kaiserslautern.

Frankfurt travels to Dortmund in the Bundesliga over the weekend. Kehl says Dortmund "had the better chances" and "deserved to win."
