Borussia Dortmund progress to final thanks to Ousmane Dembele winner

But after Sven Bender's defensive heroics after the break, 19-year-old Dembele first set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to equalize before firing home a stunning victor.

Alonso was then booked for simulation as he tried to win a penalty in a desperate attempt to send the game into extra time, before Robben was denied by Burki late on as the visitors held on for a heroic victory. With Bayern looking good at 2-1, there was no pending threat from the visitors at that stage but, buoyed by seeing their ex-skipper on the sidelines, BVB turned the game around, punishing Bayern for their awful wastefulness in front of goal.

Lahm is set to retire from football at the end of the season and, while the Bavarians are preparing to win the Bundesliga, there won't be a cup final to end his career on after this loss and their Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid.

Things indeed did go Dortmund's way early on when Marco Reus scored after some poor play from Javi Martinez, only for the Spaniard to quickly make amends when he equalised after a corner.

However, their dreams of repeating last season's league and cup double, under Ancelott's predecessor Pep Guardiola, are over. Our mistake was to squander our chances.

'Furious' leaves competition in the dust at N.America box office
A major problem plaguing DC Films past year was the severe second weekend drop-off for "Batman v Superman" and "Suicide Squad". At least the Heigl movie had a low production budget ( about $12 million) to minimize losses.

"It's a very big win because the last two or three weeks were very hard for us and now we have the chance to win one title and we are happy", he said after the game. "We have to give it everything and wrap up the championship title as soon as possible".

But the visitors carved out an unlikely equaliser when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, lurking at the far post, nodded in a flawless Dembele cross in the 69th.

That paved the way for the French teenager to hit the victor with a curling left-foot shot to break Bayern's hearts. "You could see when it was 2-2 that we really wanted to reach the final".

"We then had enormous luck after the break when Bender prevented Robben from scoring Bayern's third", he said. "First, we have to absorb this setback".

Bayern had brushed BVB aside 5-1 and 4-1 in their previous two league meetings at the Allianz Arena and it seemed a matter of time before dominant Bayern scored again, but being let down by their reliable sharpshooters eventually saw Dortmund battle sensationally against the odds to their fourth successive DFB Pokal final in Berlin.
