Ousmane Dembele's late victor sent his club to their fourth consecutive German Cup final, leaving Germany's greatest team in the dust and guaranteeing that Bayern will only end this season with one trophy.

"We set ourselves targets at the start of the season and we've not met them", said David Alaba after the game, just a few days before his side could wrap up a fifth successive Bundesliga title.

Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski (L) falls down during a semifinal match of German Cup between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in Munich, Germany, on April 26, 2017. "We certainly had a bit of luck too". 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 bad wastefulness in front of goal.

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. But, after surviving a Bayern onslaught either side of the break, the Ousmane Dembele-inspired visitors took their chances in the second period and booked a trip to Berlin.

However, their dreams of repeating last season's league and cup double, under Ancelott's predecessor Pep Guardiola, are over.

Javi Martinez and Mats Hummels had netted first-half goals for Bayern to cancel out Marco Reus's early strike for Dortmund. Barely half an hour earlier, Dembele had snatched the victor after a Marco Reus-led counter-attack, minutes after teeing up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the equaliser. "We have to now make things clear in the championship (German league) as quickly as possible".

"This is extremely bitter and I am very disappointed", said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm, who is retiring at the end of the season.

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

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

Dortmund will play in a fourth consecutive final when it faces Eintracht Frankfurt on May 27.
