Berlin: Bayern Munich overcame a red card for Franck Ribery to reach the quarterfinals of the German Cup with a 2-0 win at Augsburg on Tuesday.
Ribery set up Mario Gomez for Bayern's opening goal in the 26th minute of the third round match, when the Frenchman got his cross in despite the attention of three defenders.
It should have been 2-0 before the break, when Anatoliy Tymoshchuk struck the crossbar with a tremendous shot from distance. Play continued despite TV replays showing the ball crossed the line. Augsburg goalkeeper Alexander Manninger denied Bastian Schweinsteiger from the rebound and the Bayern midfielder struck the crossbar with an overhead kick from the second attempt.
