Reyna stepped to his right and curled in a low shot for the opening goal. Six minutes later, the winger had his first career double when he tapped in a wide-open chance following Raphaël Guerreiro’s deflected back-heeled pass. But Reyna didn’t get his chance at a hat-trick after he was subbed off at halftime. Although it came against a second-division German club, albeit one that defeated a strong Bayern Munich side on penalties in the cup’s second round, the double gives Reyna seven goals on the season.Dortmund will face RB Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal final following the club’s thrilling last-second, extra-time winner against Werder Bremen on Friday. More Soccer Coverage:Manchester City Moves to Within Three Points of Premier League TitleStraus: What Marsch’s Leipzig Move Means for American CoachesWilson: Nothing Is Straightforward for Arsenal These Days
