Ousmane Dembele’s winner sends Dortmund to the DFB Cup Final for the fourth consecutive season. Bayern Munchen 2- 3 Borussia Dortmund

The battle of the heavyweights it was in German football and one of them had to come out glorious and it is the yellow brigade from Dortmund that will book their tickets for the Final in Berlin against Niko Kovac’s Frankfurt.

Things went Dortmund’s way when Javi Martinez’s poor back pass was intercepted by Guerreiro but Ulreich and Lahm somehow managed to keep it away but Reus came from no where and gave the visitors the lead.

But then the Spaniard scored a thumping header from a corner to get Bayern back on level terms.The former Athletic Bilbao man seemed determined to single-handedly turn things around after his earlier mistake and he was unfortunate not to put Bayern ahead when he hit the bar with yet another header after a corner.

Shortly before halftime, Hummels found the net of his old team with a clinical finish after some good work from Ribery down the left wing. Things were looking good for Bayern at the half way stage as they had the 2-1 lead. The lead for Bayern could have been more but Lewandowski squandered several opportunities of increasing the margin.

In the second half, Bayern pushed for a 3rd goal when Arjen Robben wasted a golden opportunity to seal the deal but he fired it against the post after some clumsy play from Dortmund.

But Bayern were made to pay for their reckless attitude and Aubameyang scored the equaliser in the 69th minute directing a header past Ulreich from a perfect Dembele cross.

Dembele still had plenty to show and the French wonder kid gave BVB the lead, finding the top corner from a rapid counter after Lahm conceded possession in the midfield.

Bayern still tried to get back in the game but it was certainly the night for Thomas Tuchel’s men. Xabi Alonso was booked for simulation on his efforts to win a penalty and to take the game to extra time. Robben was also denied by Burki late on to give the visitors a emphatic Der Klassiker triumph at Allianz Arena. Dortmund are now on their way to the German capital for the DFB Cup final against Frankfurt on 27th May.
