Bayern Munich stayed on course for a domestic double by edging out Borussia Dortmund in the DFK Pokal quarter-finals.

The Bavarians, who head the Bundesliga by 17 points from a distant Dortmund, also have Champions League glory in their sights.

Arjen Robben scored to give Bayern a 1-0 home victory over Dortmund in front of a 71,000-strong crowd - including UEFA president Michel Platini - at the Allianz Arena.

Now the semi-finals await Jupp Heynckes and his impressive team.

Robben made the breakthrough with a curling strike from 20 yards in the 43rd minute, and Bayern clung to their lead as they avenged defeat in the final by Dortmund last year.

Heynckes said on dfb.de: "It was a very intensive match with two high-quality teams, we were that one goal better. We had more chances in the first half. Dortmund were very hard-running, very aggressive.

"With a match on such a level small things can decide it. We were a touch more aggressive today and really wanted this victory."

Stuttgart also reached the last four, beating Bochum 2-0.

Christian Gentner netted an 18th-minute opener for the home side and Vedad Ibisevic ended Bochum hopes with Stuttgart's second goal nine minutes from time.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
