Bayern Munich, Stuttgart reach German Cup semis
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -Arjen Robben scored late in the first half for Bayern Munich to beat title-holder Borussia Dortmund 1-0 on Wednesday and reach the German Cup semifinals.
Dortmund beat Bayern 5-2 in last season's final and won its second consecutive Bundesliga championship. But this has been Bayern's season and it has a 17-point lead over Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
Robben curled in a shot from the edge of the penalty area after Dortmund lost possession, giving Bayern its first win over Dortmund after five straight losses and one draw.
Stuttgart also advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 2007 with a comfortable 2-0 victory over second-division Bochum.
Christian Gentner scored with a deflected shot in the 18th and Vedad Ibisevic notched his first goal of 2013 in the 83rd to secure Stuttgart's victory.
Bayern and Stuttgart, which won the Bundesliga in 2007, join Wolfsburg and Freiburg in the semifinals.
