Dortmund beats Bayern Munich on penalties in German cup semifinal

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Bayern Munich's bid for a trophy treble ended on Tuesday when the holders lost 2-0 on penalties to 10-man Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup semifinals after missing four spot-kicks in the shootout.

The match went into extra time after Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang canceled out Robert Lewandowski first-half goal and the two teams were deadlocked 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.


Just two days after securing the Bundesliga championship, Bayern lost one of the two titles it won last season. Pep Guardiola's team is also in the Champions League semifinals.

Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer saved Mats Hummels' shot from the spot to revive his team's hopes, but took the next shot and crashed it against the crossbar.
