BAYERN MUNICH’S HOPES of winning the treble were ended after losing to Borussia Dortmund on penalties as their German Cup semi-final finished 1-1 after extra-time.

Having been crowned German league champions on Sunday, Bayern lost the shoot-out 2-0 after missing all four of their spot-kicks to send Dortmund into the German Cup final on 30 May.

Philipp Lahm, Xabi Alonso, Mario Gotze and Manuel Neuer all failed to score from 12 yards.
