Moenchengladbach knocked out of German Cup by Bielefeld

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Borussia Moenchengladbach crashed out of the German Cup on penalties against third-division Arminia Bielefeld on Wednesday.

Bielefeld won the shootout 6-5 after holding the third-place Bundesliga team to a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes and then extra time. The winners reached the semifinals for the third time after 2005 and 2006, when it was still in the top tier.

Moenchengladbach's Raffael shot wide and Ibrahim Traora had the decisive penalty saved as the third-division leader advanced.

Manuel Junglas put Bielefeld ahead in the 26th and Max Kruse equalized from the penalty spot in the 32nd.

Bielefeld had already eliminated Bundesliga sides Werder Bremen and Hertha Berlin.

In the later match, Bayer Leverkusen hosted Bayern Munich.
