European round-up: RB Leipzig net extra-time winner to reach German Cup final


RB Leipzig reached the final of the German Cup with a last-gasp 2-1 extra-time victory over Werder Bremen.

Emil Forsberg struck from close range in the dying seconds to set up a final date with either Borussia Dortmund or Holstein Kiel on May 13.

Leipzig twice hit the post in normal time, Alexander Sorloth and Christopher Nkunku going close, before Hwang Hee-chan gave them a 93rd-minute lead.

Leonardo Bittencourt equalised after 105 minutes but Forsberg’s late finish prevented a penalty shoot-out.
