Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn admitted his side rode their luck during their 3-0 win over third division St Pauli in the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal.

Owen Hargreaves broke the deadlock in the 15th minute, before a late double from Claudio Pizarro secured a flattering scoreline for the Bundesliga leaders at the intimidating Millerntor-Stadion.

Kahn told PA Sport: "Hats off to St Pauli, a loss would not have been an embarrassment for us. You could not see a difference between the two teams at certain times."
