Aubameyang & Dembele Send Bayern Crashing Out Of DFB Pokal

That paved the way for the French teenager to hit the victor with a curling left-foot shot to break Bayern's hearts.

Dortmund were twice defeated by Bayern Munich in the showpiece match of the contest, whereas they once capitulated in front of Wolfsburg, so Dortmund will really relish an opportunity to go against Eintracht Frankfurt in a month's time. "We wanted a lot more out of it but we did not kill the game off when we could have".

He highlighted the fact that several of his players had been making their first ever trip to Bayern, and said: "It's like skiing".
