33-year-old Ribery hadn’t played since the end of January after picking up the injury in training.

Thiago Alcantara then headed in Lewandowski’s cross before the Polish striker tapped in Bayern’s third.

Holger Badstuber, on loan from Bayern, was sent off for the visitors as he picked up his second yellow after a foul on Javi Martinez.

Two penalties were enough for Borussia Moenchengladbach to beat Hamburg 2-1 away in the other quarterfinal.

The recently prolific Lars Stindl broke the deadlock from the spot minutes after the restart, awarded when Mergim Mavraj brought Patrick Herrmann down.

It was Stindl’s eighth goal in six games across all competitions.

Raffael made it 2-0 with a strike minutes later, this time after Matthias Ostrzolek fouled Jonas Hofmann.

American forward Bobby Wood grabbed Hamburg’s consolation goal with a fine finish inside the far corner in injury time.

Wood had earlier gone closest for Hamburg when he was denied by a good save from Yann Sommer, before ‘Gladbach emerged with purpose from the break.
