Dejected Bayern Munich out to secure last title on offer

The second period began in the same vein as the first had ended, with Bayern utterly dominant and looking like they would rip apart Dortmund to shreds each time they attacked.

BVB were beaten 4-1 by their arch-rivals in the Bundesliga at the start of April, but Thomas Tuchel was confident in his pre-match media conference they would do better this time around. We had the little bit of luck that's necessary when you come here.

The match went into the break with Bayern having come from behind twice to be on the driving seat at 2-1.

Meanwhile, Bayern, who have lost five straight games in all competitions and were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid last week, will focus on consolidating their place atop Bundesliga.

Ancelotti's side are eight points clear of second placed RB Leipzig with games running out.

"We had many chances to decide the game", he said.

Ancelotti's job is not yet under threat, but his first season compares unfavourably with predecessor Pep Guardiola. Javi Martinez's disgusting back pass to gift Marco Reus an opener was evidence of this malaise; though Bayern's record signing (how much longer can we say that for?) rectified his mistake by powering home a bullet header, later seeing a similar effort rattle the crossbar. Guerreiro pounced on a lose backpass from Martinez but his shot hit the post, but Marco Reus was on hand to tap home the rebound.

The visitors, under pressure for long spells, carved out an unlikely equaliser when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang nodded in a flawless Dembele cross in the 69th.

"This is extremely bitter and I am very disappointed", said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm, who is retiring at the end of the season. We didn't play well in the first 15 minutes, but then we improved.

The win means Dortmund will face Eintracht Frankfurt in the final on May 27.

That paved the way for Dembele to hit the victor with a curling left-foot shot.

Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben spurned gilt-edged chances to add a third and Bayern were made to pay for their profligacy when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang restored parity, with Ousmane Dembele eventually ending their dreams of retaining the DFB-Pokal.
