MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany (AP) - Eintracht Frankfurt will contest the German Cup final for the first time in 11 years after Branimir Hrgota clinched a 7-6 victory on penalties against former club Borussia Moenchengladbach on Tuesday.

The striker has scored only five goals during a lackluster season since signing from ‘Gladbach but he found the target when it mattered in the team’s biggest game of the season so far.

The four-time cup winner could have a chance to avenge its 2006 final loss to Bayern Munich if the German champions overcome Borussia Dortmund in Wednesday’s second semifinal.

On a nervy night in Moenchengladbach, Taleb Tawatha’s opener was canceled out by home winger Jonas Hofmann’s volley in first-half stoppage time and the deadlock couldn’t be broken through extra time.
