Bayern, who have already wrapped up a fifth consecutive league title, trailed 4-2 against second-place Leipzig in the 83rd minute.
And then cue absolute scenes inside the Red Bull Arena as a wonderful free-kick from David Alaba on the fourth minute of stoppage-time was followed up by a classic Arjen Robben charge down the right-wing to score the victor.
Carlo Ancelotti insists that Jerome Boateng and Renato Sanches will be staying at Bayern Munich next season despite reports the duo could seek pastures new.
Bayern's last-gasp victory leaves them 13-points clear of second-placed Leipzig in the table with one game left. "The goal is to play more and be more influential in the team".
But Ancelotti, while admitting Bayern expect more from the 19-year-old, has no plans to sell.
The match was explosive from the start and Leipzig took just over a minute to open the scoring, Emil Forsberg surging down the left and picking out Sabitzer to powerfully head beyond Tom Starke.
Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is reportedly a target for Juventus this summer, with the Serie A side said to be keen to add further depth to their squad.
"We're used to playing very structured football, plenty of possession, compact and aggressive defending".
"We had a hard start, but at the end it was enough for this insane result".
Lasogga equalized for Hamburg in injury time, then Kolasinac thought he'd sealed a Schalke win but the goal was ruled out as the ball went out of play. For a long time we seemed to be winning against the best German team that oozed quality.
"Boateng has had a hard season, he was injured a lot", he told a news conference ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga contest with RB Leipzig.
Not only is Werner comfortably Leipzig's top goalscorer this campaign, but the young starlet has netted more goals than any player U21 across Europe's top five leagues this term.
Timo Werner and Yussuf Poulsen scored for Leipzig, with Thiago pulling one back before Werner made it 4-2. When Robben hit the crossbar with a free-kick on 84 minutes, Lewandowski headed home the rebound, cutting their deficit to one goal again and setting the scene for the dramatic finale.
