Bayern Munich vs. VfB Stuttgart, 2013 DFB Pokal Final: Harnik pulls one back, still down two

Put the coronation on hold? Maybe... Maybe not. Either way, Martin Harnik has just scored a pretty great header in the 70th minute to pull one back for Stuttgart.

Gotoku Sakai whipped in a cross that sailed over everyone and Harnik powered into the far corner over the head of a leaping Manuel Neuer. The replay would show that Vedad Ibisevic was in an offside position, but the ball sailed well over his head to Hanik's noggin. Seriously, that was an impressive header.

While nearly twenty minutes does remain in this match, it's difficult to see this Bayern team conceding two more times to throw away this lead. Stuttgart have brought on Cacau for Ibrahima Traore in the hopes of getting a little more punch right at the center of Bayern's defense. Daniel Van Buyten and Jerome Boateng will need to be strong over the next quarter of an hour to see Bayern through to the Pokal.
