Germany: Almamy Touré propels Kaiserslautern to Cup final

Scorer and decisive passer in the semi-final on Tuesday evening in Saarbrücken (2-0), Almamy Touré sent his Kaiserslautern team to the final of the German Cup in Berlin, where the 2nd division resident will face Bayer Leverkusen or Fortuna Düsseldorf, May 25.

The adventure of FC Saarbrücken, resident of the 3rd division and winner of three Bundesliga teams - Bayern Munich in the round of 16, Eintracht Frankfurt in the round of 16 and Borussia Mönchengladbach in the quarterfinals - ended Tuesday evening at the gates of the final.

After a dull first period, the match was resolved by a big mistake by Saarbrücken goalkeeper Tim Schreiber at the start of the second half. On a cross from Almamy Touré, Marlon Ritter headed back and Schreiber let the ball pass between his legs (1-0, 53rd).

A quarter of an hour from the end of the match, Touré ensured qualification for Lautern, beating the same Schreiber with a header (2-0, 75th).

Sixteenth in the 2nd division on the uncomfortable play-off place, Kaiserslautern will play its eighth Cup final at the end of May, the first since that of 2003 lost against Bayern Munich (3-1). German champion four times (1951, 1953, 1991 and 1998), Lautern won the Cup in 1990 and 1996.

The second semi-final on Wednesday evening pits Bayer Leverkusen, Bundesliga leader still undefeated this season in 39 matches (34 wins, 5 draws) in all competitions, against Fortuna Düsseldorf, 3rd in the 2nd division.
