Lewandowski makes way, the Bundesliga's top scorer having swelled his season tally to 33 goals. Kimmich also heads off, with Choupo-Moting and Dortmund-bound Süle on for the final 60 seconds.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Lewandowski is inches away from heading in a Sabitzer cross. Hint of a push from a defender, but he's not complaining.

ALMOST A FOURTH!
Goretzka's into the box, but Hitz gets down well to divert it behind with a foot. The Bayern man was offside, in any case.
BAYERN STRIKE AGAIN!
That's surely it for the title race! Musiala jinks away and forces Hitz into an unconvincing save. Sabitzer is first to the loose ball, and Musiala sweeps home from close range for 3-1!
GOAL!3 : 1
Perhaps Haaland's best chance of the game as he controls a fabulous Brandt pass in the box. He's under pressure from Upamencano, though, and smashes over.
Almost a very good Dortmund goal. Reus shows quick feet in midfield to find Bynoe-Gittens. The teen slides a fantastic pass up to Haaland, but his shot takes a nick off Upamecano and Neuer pushes behind just to be safe.
BELLINGHAM THE ENFORCER
Leon Goretzka Jude Bellingham
Fastest runner (km/h)
Kingsley Coman Erling Haaland
Marwin Hitz with an incredible point-blank save to thwart Lewandowski from six yards. BVB still in the game...
Bynoe-Gittens, who's been dubbed 'the next Jadon Sancho', makes his second Bundesliga appearance. Reinier just hasn't been able to affect the game.
Gnabry departs, having opened the scoring and had a goal ruled out for offside. Nineteen-year-old Musiala is on.
Davies feeds Lewandowski in the box, but his cross is put behind by Zagadou. End-to-end stuff in Der Klassiker!
Pavard hacks down Bellingham in the Bayern area. It goes to the VAR - not given! Strange one...
Situation No penalty
Decision No penalty
Müller finds Goretzka in the final third. His pass is blocked into the path of Lewandowski who, despite the close attentions of a BVB defender, manages to get a shot off in the box. Wide!
Haaland for Reus again, but Hernandez slides in to stop the BVB skipper getting his shot off. The home fans loved that!
NEUER TO THE RESCUE
Haaland slips in Reus. He tries to squeeze the ball past the onrushing Neuer, but the Bayern No.1 throws himself at the ball, getting some inside leg on the effort. Let-off for Bayern.
Neuer goes the wrong way. Game on!
GOAL!2 : 1
Kimmich is late on Reus in the box. It's all man and no ball, and a lifeline for BVB. Can to take...
Neuer's out to prevent Haaland catching up with a Bellingham pass over the top. Most keepers would punt upfield, but Bayern's skipper plays a brilliantly disguised ball to his left for Hernandez.
An xG of less than one, yet Bayern lead 2-0 as the second half gets under way at the Allianz Arena.
BAYERN ON COURSE
BAYERN IN CONTROL
The record champions are 45 minutes from a record-extending 10th successive Bundesliga title. They're very good value for their lead, given to them by Gnabry and Lewandowski goals.
There's a coming together between Coman and Wolf. The latter stays down, and is in real discomfort. That's the last thing Dortmund need - another injury...
LEWY HAS A POP!
Lewandowski takes aim from 18 yards, but it sails just past the upright. Don't think Hitz would have got there.
Emre Can upends Müller, somewhat cynically. He goes into the book, followed by an irate Marco Rose. The Dortmund coach wanted Goretzka booked for his part in the ensuing melee.
TWO SHOTS, TWO GOALS
0 off target
2 on target
2 off target
0 on target
THIS ONE COUNTS!
Bayern double their lead. Zagadou concedes possession in the Dortmund half. Müller helps it through to Lewandowski who, having escaped the attentions of Akanji, slots through the legs of the advancing Hitz. That's 23 goals in 16 Bundesliga appearances against his former club - expect more!
GOAL!2 : 0
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
Marius Wolf 33.82km/h
Kingsley Coman 33.01km/h
Serge Gnabry 32.36km/h
Gnabry thinks he's scored again. It's a routine finish from the Bayern man after Wolf had inadvertently passed straight to him in his effort to stop Coman. There's a VAR check for offside against the Frenchman, who was indeed offside as he received a pass from Lewandowski.
Decision No goal
WHAT A CHANCE!
Brandt is first to a loose ball on the edge of the Bayern area. He slips it through to Haaland, who's one-on-one with Neuer but can only scuff wide on his weaker right foot.
MR. DOUBLE DIGITS
Haaland combines well with Bellingham, but a deflection takes his cross into the arms of Neuer. Bayern doing a good job so far of restricting the space for the BVB No.9 to attack.
Gnabry had no right to score as he did, according to Match Facts. Stunning goal, worthy of the occasion.
TALE OF THE TAPE
BAYERN TURNING THE SCREW
Dortmund living dangerously after that bright start. Coman gets two bites of the cherry in his attempt to free Lewandowski in the box, but a defender gets a block in.
Bayern break the deadlock with their first effort on goal. Goretzka heads a Kimmich corner back to Gnabry, who controls with his thigh and fires an unstoppable effort past Hitz from the edge of the box. He won the set-piece with a fine run, too. What a start!
GOAL!1 : 0
COMAN IN BEHIND
Coman miscontrols a Müller pass into the box. He'd escaped the attentions of the Dortmund defence - that's a let-off for the visitors.
HIVE OF ENERGY
BVB are really getting in the Bayern faces. They're pressing high up the pitch, preventing the hosts from finding their passing groove. Can they sustain this for 90 minutes?
END TO END
Bayern go up the other end with Goretzka. He aims for Gnabry in the box, but the Germany international is unable to bring the ball under wraps.
Bellingham looks for Haaland, but Neuer's first to it. Very lively start at the Allianz.
PASS AND MOVE
Nice passing from Bayern after Can gives away possession to Davies. Kimmich resists the urge to shoot, instead sliding in Pavard to his right. Müller takes it on and crosses, but BVB get it away.
Reinier's on the move in the final third. He looks for Haaland, but Davies nips in on the edge of the box to clear.
The 106th Klassiker of the Bundesliga era is under way! Can Dortmund delay Bayern's coronation?
We have a capacity 75,000 crowd at the Allianz Arena. The place is bouncing, befitting Der Klassiker. For the first time ever, the Bundesliga's golden fixture can determine the winner of the title. Here come the teams...
TIME TO WALK THE WALK - REUS
"It’s a prestigious game, no question," affirmed BVB captain Marco Reus. "But just like in every match, we want to win there too. Over the last few years we’ve talked a lot, but I don’t want to say too much now. We just need to focus on the game and we’ll see what happens. We’re going there with self-confidence."
KIMMICH: 'TITLE THE GOAL'
Having decided the 2019/20 Klassiker in Dortmund, Joshua Kimmich knows a thing or two about the fixture. "We definitely want to win the title against Dortmund at home; this is a special game for us and for the entire Bundesliga, the Bayern midfielder explained. "To get the championship trophy, that's clearly the ultimate goal."
WATCH: DORTMUND 2-3 BAYERN
Former Dortmund striker Lewandowski makes his 250th Bundesliga in a Bayern shirt (he made 131 for BVB). The Pole has scored 235 top-tier goals for the record champions, including 22 in 15 meetings with his ex-employers.
MORE ON THOSE TEAMS
Nagelsmann welcomes back defender Lucas Hernandez and winger Kingsley Coman to the starting line-up. Tanguy Nianzou and Marcel Sabitzer make way, with Leroy Sane among the substitutes. Dortmund are without first-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel and midfielder Axel Witsel, so Marwin Hitz and Real Madrid-owned Reinier Jesus come in.
BAYERN STARTING LINE-UP
Neuer (c) - Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies - Kimmich, Goretzka - Gnabry, Müller, Coman - Lewandowski
Ulreich, Süle, Sane, Choupo-Moting, Sabutzer, Roca, Nianzou, Musiala, Stanisic
DORTMUND STARTING LINE-UP
Hitz - Can, Akanji, Zagadou - Wolf, Brandt, Bellingham, Guerreiro - Reus (c), Reinier - Haaland
Bürki, Schulz, Moukoko, Passlack, Pongracic, Rothe, Semic, Bynoe-Gittens, Papadopoulos
The gap between the top two with four games to go is nine points. The most that Dortmund can therefore get is 75. Bayern are three away from that total. But the only way they can win the title this weekend is by beating their arch-rivals. Even a draw leaves Bayern’s fate in their own hands thanks to a goal difference that is 27 better off than BVB’s, meaning they could lose their last three but still finish on top. Borussia therefore must win in Munich to keep the race going – something they have not done since 2014.
