Bayern Munich vs. VfB Stuttgart, 2013 DFB Pokal Final: Harnik grabs a second and gives the game life

Bayern Munich appeared to be on cruise control with fifteen minutes remaining in the match, and it's now come back to bite them. VfB Stuttgart are still in this match.

Martin Harnik has scored his second goal in ten minutes to give Stuttgart a huge lifeline in the Pokal Final. After Jerome Boateng seemed to get away with a handball in the penalty area (I guess this makes up for the penalty for Bayern the ref missed in the first half?), Stuttgart capitalized on a corner kick. The ball fell to the feet of Shinji Okazaki, and the Japanese international's bullet shot ricocheted off the post. Manuel Neuer was quick back to his feet and saved Harnik's first shot with his leg. Harnik's second shot took a deflection off the feet of a sliding Bastian Schweinsteiger and beat Neuer to make it 2-0.

With just minutes remaining the 2013 DFB Pokal Final, do Stuttgart have another goal in them to force extra time or will Bayern successfully kill off the match?
