PADERBORN, Germany – Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich demolished third-division Paderborn 6-0 on Tuesday to claim a spot in the semifinals of the German Cup.
The hosts got off to a good start and looked to have taken the lead in the 8th minute when a free kick found the back of the net, but the goal was disallowed for offside.
Bayern began the scoring in the 19th minute with a strike from Kingsley Coman, assisted by Thomas Müller.
Six minutes later, it was Coman’s turn to set up Robert Lewandowski’s goal, and the visitors took a 3-0 lead into the dressing room at half-time after a goal in the 42nd minute by Joshua Kimmich.
Corentin Tolisso, who came on for Müller, headed in a James Rodriguez corner to make it 4-0 in the 55th minute.
A pair of goals by Arjen Robben in the last four minutes of regulation completed the rout.
