Full-time: Bayern hit Schalke for six
Icing on the cake!
A first Bundesliga goal for Mazraoui as he slots beyond Schwolow via the post!
Scholow stops Müller!
Another Schwolow save as he gobbles up Müller's attempt.
Mazraoui's shot is parried by Schwolow and, while Pavard turns home the rebound, he is in an offside position when doing so.
The youngster has been impressive today, and only Schwolow prevents him from finding the bottom corner.
Tel gets in on the act!
The teenager gets himself on the scoresheet by prodding Musiala's through ball beyond Schwolow. Lovely finish!
Top of the Bayern charts!
Polter heads over
The substitute doesn't get his timing right and fails to trouble Sommer as a result.
Kral wide of the mark
The Czech Republic international's effort flies high and wide.
Gnabry at the double!
Another for Gnabry, who pounces onto Yoshida's poor pass before rounding Schwolow and tapping home.
What an opening!
Müller misses an open goal from about three yards - not what we have come to expect from the legendary Raumdeuter!
Van den Berg heads wide
A chance for Schalke, but the centre-back can only head wide of the post from a corner.
It's been all Bayern today, as the xGoals show.
Bayern well on top
Gnabry on fire
With two games left after this and goal difference potentially crucial, Schalke must be careful for the remainder of this account to not let this get out of hand.
Gnabry gets his goal!
Lovely play from Cancelo down the left, and after receiving the ball from the Portuguese full-back, Gnabry buries with aplomb. Plain sailing for the hosts!
Ambitious from Coman!
The winger tries his luck from way out and, while it isn't too far away, there's nothing for Schwolow to worry about.
Here we go again!
45 minutes left in this one!
Bayern in control
Schwolow thwarts Gnabry!
The goalkeeper is the striker's nemesis once more, getting down low to keep his header out.
Under 5 minutes remaining
Can Schalke half the deficit before half-time? Or will Bayern extend their lead further?
First for Kimmich
Never before in his previous 231 Bundesliga games has the Bayern captain scored from the spot.
Bayern double their advantage!
The Bavarians are awarded a penalty after Brunner blocks off Musiala in the box, and from 12 yards, Kimmich sends Schwolow the wrong way.
Schalke need a reaction
Opening Schalke attempt
A first shot for Schalke after that opener, but Brunner's volley is never troubling Sommer between the Bayern sticks.
Bayern in front!
The hosts have their goal, and it comes via that man Müller! It's a lovely finish too, as he sidefoots an efforts into the corner.
Another Bayern chance goes begging, as Musiala fires an effort over the bar from inside the penalty area.
Schwolow is called into action once more, and he is equal to the Germany international's low drive. From the subsequent corner, De Ligt's header is wide of the target. Schalke clinging on at the moment!

Bayern dominating possession
A brilliant chance for Bayern! Müller is the architect, breaking free down the right before passing to Coman, but his shot is cleared off the line by Sepp van den Berg!
Early Bayern pressure
The hosts are camped inside their opponents' half here as they look to pick up an early lead.
First shot on target!
Gnabry let's fly for the first time, but his shot is well saved by Alexander Schwolow.
Bayern threaten on the counter!
A surprising start as the visitors leave themselves open at the back early on. However, Gnabry's pass is poor and Schalke are let off.
And we're off!
Bayern get us going here at the Allianz Arena.
Out of the tunnel
The two teams are making their way onto the pitch!
Danny Latza comes back into the starting line-up, and will be looking to pick up a second away win at Bayern along with Marcin Kaminski.
15 minutes to go!
Not long until we get underway in a match that will have huge implications at both ends of the table.
Müller to be decisive?
Tuchel: "We have our own aims"
The Bayern boss is fully aware of Die Königsblauen's resurgence, but is confident his side will be able to win without adapting their game to their opponents. "Schalke have had a few dramatic wins. Their confidence is intact. This success has given them a boost, and they're the 8th best side in the second half of the season. We have our own aims and want to control the game."
Reis: "We know what to expect"
Schalke's form in recent weeks has given them a fighting chance of securing Bundesliga survival, and Reis believes those positive results will put his team in good stead. "We have lots of respect for Bayern, but will do all we can to get what we want from the game," he explained in his pre-match press conference. "We have got ourselves into a good position and want to give them a real game. We know what to expect and can't let our heads drop if something doesn't go well."

Schalke may stick with their winning side
The Royal Blues have put up quite a fight for survival in the second half of the season. A last-gasp victory at Mainz last Friday was their second win in a row and lifted them out of the bottom three for the first time in over seven months.
Can Schalke shake off Bayern curse?
Schalke have not beaten Bayern in their previous 24 meetings - you have to go back to 2011 to find the last time Schalke beat the record champions (as that was in the DFB Cup, you have to go back to 2010 in the Bundesliga). What a time it would be to end that poor record, though!
Bayern beat Bremen to hold top spot
Three hurdles left
It hasn't all been smooth sailing for Bayern Munich this season, but they go into the clash against Schalke one point in front of Dortmund with just three matches of the season remaining. A win would not decide anything, but it would take the record German champions a lot closer to the finish line with an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title in sight.
