TITLE RACE TO GO DOWN TO FINAL DAY!
Bayern miss the chance to win the title after Dortmund beat Fortuna, taking us nicely into the final weekend. They will win a seventh successive Bundesliga crown if they win or avoid defeat in Frankfurt, unless they draw and Dortmund win by 18 goals. If they lose, and Dortmund take all three points in Mönchengladbach, however, BVB will pip them to the post.
90' + 2'
FIVE MINUTES OF TIME ADDED ON
Plenty of time for one final twist in the tale...
Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are both on for Bayern. Imagine the headlines if they do the business at the last...
Robert Lewandowski inside the six-yard box.. he has to score - no! Gulacsi and Konate somehow keep it out!
No! The ball sat up really nicely for the Leipzig left-back, but he gets too much curl on the ball and it sails wide! There's a goal in this!
The spaces are opening up for boths sides in the final third. Emil Forsberg sees an effort charged down, but Bayern break at speed. Only Ibrahima Konate's intervention prevents Robert Lewandowski going one-on-one with Peter Gulacsi.
The stuff of Marvel Comics as Niklas Süle steams in to deny Timo Werner a clear goal-scoring chance. He takes the man, but only after cleanly swiping the ball to safety. Someone that size shouldn't be able to move that fast!
GNABRY OFF THE BAR!
Bayern playing with increased urgency as Serge Gnabry shakes off Lukas Klostermann on his way into the box. He takes aim, but the ball strikes the angle of post and bar!
BAYERN IN CONTROL
Peter Gulacsi is there again, this time smothering a probing cross from Thomas Müller. If he got that wrong, Serge Gnabry would have been in.
DORTMUND LEAD AGAIN!
Thomas Delaney has restored Dortmund's lead over Düsseldorf. Is the title race going down to the final day?
BAYERN GOAL RULED OUT!
Moments after David Alaba tests Peter Gulucsi and Kingsley Coman puts the follow-up wide, Bayern think they've taken the lead. Serge Gnabry hangs up a cross, which Ibrahima Konata can only half clear. Leon Goretzka sends a smart volley into the net, but it won't count!. VAR says no - because Lewandowski was a fraction offside. Just as Fortuna equalise against Dortmund, too!
Nothing to separate the teams in Leipzig, despite some promising openings at both ends. Entertaining, and a touch feisty, make sure you join us for the second half.
GOAL IN DORTMUND!
Christian Pulisic has given second-placed Dortmund the lead against Düsseldorf . The live table now has Bayern ahead by just two points...
Leipzig turn defence into attack in a flash. There's a man over in Timo Werner, but the final ball is a bit behind the Germany striker, allowing the grey shirts to scramble back into position. He gets a shot off, but it lacks the sting to trouble Sven Ulreich.
Serge Gnabry connects with a corner at the back post, but his volley is straight at Peter Gulacsi, who beats the ball to safety. Either side of the goalkeeper, and Bayern might have been ahead there.
DEMME TAKING NO PRISONERS
The Bayern players are no happy with Diego Demme. He goes in hard of Joshua Kimmich, who is far from pleaed with the nature of the challenge. No booking, mind.
DEMME THE DESTROYER
Diego Demme doing a bit more than just foraging for possession as he lunges in on Kingsley Coman. It's always a worry when the Frenchman goes to ground like that, given his chequered injury history, but he escapes unharmed this time.
COMAN DOING HIS BIT
Is it a bird, is it a plane? No - it's Kingsley Coman. Marcel Halstenberg would have been clean through, but for the Bayern winger's lung-busting tracking. Superb effort.
Ibrahima Konate just made Robert Lewandowski look like a stick insect on ice. Monstrous defending from the 19-year-old Frenchman.
GOALLESS IN DORTMUND
Still goalless in Dortmund, though Fortuna's Dodi Lukebakio has just had an effort ruled out for offside. It it stays like this, Bayern will be champions with a game to spare.
SABITZER GHOSTS IN
Leipzig are really picking their passes well right now. Marcel Sabitzer is played in behind the Bayern back four, but Mats Hummels is there again to deflect the Austrian's cross into the palms of Sven Ulreich. Leipzig taking charge...
So close to the opener. Lukas Klostermann does really well to get a cross in on the stretch. Yussuf Poulsen takes the ball on first time, but his goal-bound effort is blocked by Mats Hummels. Bayern at sixes and sevens, but get away with it!
BAYERN ON THE BACK FOOT
Leipzig are finding joy in the half spaces as Emil Forsberg spots the run of Timo Werner coming in off the left flank. He cuts in and takes aim, but his shot is charged down.
POULSEN HALF CHANCE
Now it's Leipzig's turn to attack. Timo Werner does really well to dig out a pass for Marcel Halstenberg to attack from the left flank. His pass is measured to perfection, but Yussuf Poulsen is coming at it sideways on and can only steer his first-time effort wide. The idea was right, mind.
Bayern are beginning to monopolise possession at the Red Bull Arena. After a corner comes to nothing, Thiago returns the ball with interest. It's a laser-guided ball onto the toe of Robert Lewandowski, who fires wide under pressure from the advancing Peter Gulacsi. Superb goalkeeping!
GNABRY HAS A GO!
Effortless stuff in the final third from Bayern. The ball's worked in off the left-hand flank to Serge Gnabry, who fires a fairly tame effort straight at Peter Gulacsi. Joshua Kimmich was unmarked on the overlap, if only he'd looked up.
LEIPZIG SNAPPING AT THE HEELS
The Leipzig players are a hive of energy in the early stages. If they can keep this up, it's going to be a very uncomfortable afternoon for Bayern...
WERNER ALMOST IN
Bayern are nearly caught out as Timo Werner races after a probing ball over the top. Sven Ulreich beats him to it, but Niko Kovac won't have been happy with that.
LEIPZIG ONLY THINKING ABOUT LEIPZIG
Ralf Rangnick says Leipzig are not thinking about denying Bayern the top prize or doing Dortmund a favour. Their focus is on extending their 14-match unbeaten run and building towards the DFB Cup final. " We want to press Bayern and if possible beat them, but not to annoy them, it’s for self-interest," he explained. "Bayern have to get a result. We don’t have to but we want to. It'd have a psychological effect on the cup final. Ideally we’d like to win both games".
GNABRY DETERMINED TO SEAL THE DEAL
Serge Gnabry admits Bayern don't want to run the risk of having to beat Eintracht Frankfurt on the final day - which is what they may well need to do if results go against them today. “We all know we can win our first title of the season in Saturday’s game,” he told Bayern's website. "None of us want to wait until the Frankfurt game. We’re working with focus, we’re working hard. We need to be 100 per cent ready on Saturday and then wrap up the first trophy."
Leipzig are already guaranteed Champions League football for next season, but there's absolutely no chance of them rolling over today. Die Roten Bullen can still finish second if they win today and Dortmund implode. They'll also want to lay down a marker for their DFB Cup final meeting with Bayern at the end of the month.
Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick reverts to a back four for the visit of Bayern. Nordi Mukiele drops out, with Lukas Klostermann and Marcel Halstenberg slipping back into full-back roles. Diego Demme replaces the suspended Kevin Kampl in midfield, while Marcel Sabitzer returns on the right wing after sitting out last Friday's 3-3 draw with Mainz.
LEIPZIG TEAM IN FULL
Gulacsi – Klostermann, Konate, Orban (c), Halstenberg – Sabitzer, Demme, Laimer, Forsberg - Poulsen, Werner
BAYERN TEAM IN FULL
Ulreich – Kimmich, Süle, Hummels, Alaba – Thiago, Goretzka – Gnabry, Müller (c), Coman – Lewandowski
There were some worries looks on the faces of Bayern fans as the team left for Leipzig yesterday. Robert Lewandowski took a blow to a foot in training, and looked to be in some discomfort as he boarded the team bus. The 22-goal Poland striker is fit to start, though, but there's no Manuel Neuer, Javi Martinez or James Rodriguez for the defending champions.
Huge, huge game at the Red Bull Arena. If Bayern win, they will be crowned champions for the seventh season in a row. They could even wrap up the title if they don't if Borussia Dortmund - four points worse off in second - fail to beat Fortuna Düsseldorf.
