Bayern Munich 2-0 Cologne

Harry Kane

Second-half goals from Raphael Guerreiro and Thomas Muller saw Bayern Munich beat Cologne 2-0, meaning Bayer Leverkusen must wait until Sunday for their chance to win a first-ever Bundesliga title.

The champions knew nothing less than victory would do against a Cologne side fighting relegation, meaning manager Thomas Tuchel fielded a strong-looking line-up despite taking on Arsenal in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

However, after a subdued first half, the hosts made the breakthrough thanks to Guerreiro’s sensational strike, before Muller took advantage of a mistake at the back to confirm the victory in stoppage time.

As a result, Bayern have prolonged Leverkusen’s wait for the title for at least 24 hours, with Xabi Alonso’s side now needing to beat Werder Bremen at home on Sunday afternoon, live on Sky Sports, to be crowned champions.
