Wolfsburg routs Bielefeld, reaches German Cup final vs. Dortmund

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Maxi Arnold scored two goals to help Wolfsburg beat third-division Arminia Bielefeld 4-0 on Wednesday and secure a place in the German Cup final against Borussia Dortmund.

Daniel Caligiuri set up three goals for the second-place team in the Bundesliga, whose only previous appearance in the final was in 1995, when it lost 3-0 to Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Dortmund beat Bayern Munich on penalties in the other semifinal on Tuesday. The final is May 30 in Berlin.

Arnold opened the scoring in the fourth minute and Luiz Gustavo doubled the lead in the 32nd.

Ivan Perisic made it 3-0 in the 51st and Arnold scored his second in the 55th.

Arminia's Florian Dick hit the crossbar early in the second half but the third-division leader otherwise rarely threatened.
