Bayern Munich beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-0, thanks to goals from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Joshua Kimmich, to go ten points clear of second-placed Leipzig in the 2020-21 Bundesliga table.

Choupo-Moting opened the scoring for Bayern Munich in the seventh minute by volleying in a rebound to beat Bayer Leverkusen custodian Lukas Hradecky. Six minutes later, Joshua Kimmich doubled the hosts' lead, capitalising on a messy clearance by Leverkusen's backline.

With just four games to go, Bayern Munich are on the cusp of a record-extending ninth-consecutive Bundesliga title.
