Mkhitaryan and Lewandowski Fire Dortmund Into Cup Final

Borussia Dortmund booked their spot in the final of the DFB-Pokal after they defeated Wolfsburg 2-0 at Signal-Iduna Park.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Robert Lewandowski secured Dortmund's path to the final, where they await the winner of the Bayern Munich v Kaiserslautern tie.
 
Dortmund opened the scoring in the 13th minute as Henrikh Mkhitaryan curled one past Max Grun from outside the area after being teed up by Marco Reus.
 
Reus should have doubled the home side's lead in the 17th minute, the German midfielder was played through one-on-one with Grun but his first touch let him down and Grun was able to collect.
 
It was all one way traffic, as Dortmund's Kevin Groskreutz came close in the 38th minute with a effort from close range that flew just wide of the target.
 
Kevin De Bruyne should have leveled matters for Wolfsburg in the 42nd minute but  the former Chelsea man blasted over from inside the area.
 
Wolfsburg were made to pay for that miss a minute later, as Robert Lewandowski's composed finish from close range doubled the home side's advantage.
 
Jurgen Klopp's men came out firing in the second half, as Lewandowski struck the upright from a tight angle four minutes after the restart.
 
Ivica Olic squandered a chance to grab a goal back in the 56th minute as the former Bayern Munich striker headed wide of the target from close range.
 
Junior Malanda squandered great opportunity to grab a goal back for Wolfsburg in the 75th minute, as the Belgian placed his effort over the from six-yards out.
 
Roman Weidenfeller was called into action for the first time in the 81st minute to brilliantly keep Malanda's close range header, as Klopp's men held on for the victory, which has earned them a spot in the German cup final.
