RB Leipzig have moved a step closer to a maiden trophy with a 2-0 home win over Wolfsburg sending them into the semi-finals of the German Cup.
The hosts scored twice in the second half to snap their opponents' run of eight consecutive clean sheets - seven of those coming in the Bundesliga.
Yussuf Poulsen netted the opener in the 63rd minute and Hwang Hee-chan struck two minutes from the end to keep Leipzig on track for their first major trophy.
"We are firstly dreaming that we play a good game in the semi-finall," Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann told Sky.
"It doesn't change anything. We have to go along the road first.
"If we get to Berlin we can speak about further things."
Wolfsburg keeper Koen Casteels made the save of the day when he stopped a point-blank header from Christopher Nkunku wide as Leipzig made a strong start.
Nkunku then conceded a 26th-minute penalty but had a lucky escape when Wout Weghorst slipped and sent his spot kick metres over the bar.
Poulsen broke the deadlock just past the hour and substitute Hwang stabbed the ball in on the rebound to finish the game off.
Meanwhile, second division Holstein Kiel scored twice in three minutes to beat fourth tier Rot-Weiss Essen 3-0 and reach the last four for the first time in their history.
Essen, cup winners in 1953, were hoping to reach the semis for the first time since 1994 on the back of a glorious run that included a win over Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
But they were a level short of Kiel, second in their league and chasing promotion to the top-flight.
Kiel's progress began when Finn Porath went down easily to win a 26th-minute penalty coolly converted by Alexander Muehling.
Less than two minutes later Janni Serra tapped in though Essen fought on, they rarely looked like finding a way back into the game.
Joshua Mees put the tie beyond doubt in the final minute with the aid of a deflection.
"We have passed where others have failed and achieved something that is unique for our club," Ole Werner, the 32-year-old Kiel coach, said.
Borussia Dortmund booked their semi-final spot with a 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday while the quarter-final between Jahn Regensburg and Werder Bremen was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols.
