5 - 0
FT
Borussia Dortmund
M. Hummels 10'
R. Lewandowski 17'
Javi Martínez 41'
S. Gnabry 43'
R. Lewandowski 89'
Well, that was fun. Not if you're of a Dortmund persuasion. But a Bayern Munich side in that sort of flow is never a bad watch for a neutral. Only a pity the contest wasn't what it was built up to be. Only a one-sided romp.

That's it from us, tonight. This is Aaditya Narayan signing off. Good night!
FULL-TIME: BAYERN MUNICH 5-0 BORUSSIA DORTMUND

Well, that was a smashing, there's little else to say. 
That's the best Bayern played in a long, long time. That's the worst Dortmund defended in a long, long time. It was a stunning display of power from the German champions, and they've taken a huge step on their road to a 9th consecutive Bundesliga title. 
90' PEEEEEPPPP! There's no injury time. And the referee's stopped Dortmund's nightmare. 
89' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! LEWANDOWSKI ADDS SALT TO DORTMUND WOUNDS!

Finally, Gnabry gets an assist. He's been threatening to get one all half. Kimmich has played Gnabry through with a superb ball, he's reached the by-line, and just squared it for Lewandowski to easily tap home. 
83' Lewandowski has missed another! Off another set-up from Gnabry! The winger has reached the byline, and cut it back towards Lewandowski, whose shot from within the six-yard box is scuffed. 
82' Thiago's delivery is a little too high, and Burki can catch
81' Now Bayern have another free-kick on the edge of the area. Wrong decision from the ref, as Weigl got the ball while sliding in on Ribery
81' The ref's stopped play for a foul from Witsel on Lewandowski. He should've played on as Ribery found Gnabry with a superb pass anyway
80' Bayern make their final change, as the excellent Muller goes off

ON - Renato Sanches
OFF - Thomas Muller
80' Alaba has skied the free-kick. Two, maybe three goal frames, above the actual one would've been missed by that shot. 
79' Bayern have a free-kick in shooting range, as a frustrated Reus brings down Lewandowski
78' Lewandowski should've scored! It's more good play from Gnabry on the right wing. His low cross is met by Lewandowski, but he's put that shot over the bar. 
77' Thiago puts Gnabry through on the right again. His cut-back towards Muller is intercepted by Akanji
77' Bayern make their second substitution

ON - Leon Goretzka
OFF - Javi Martinez
76' Thiago's free-kick is left alone at the near post by Muller, and scratched out to Gnabry, whose shot is wild and high. 
76' Bayern have another set-piece. This time, from the right flank. Kimmich brought down by Delaney. 
75' Gnabry is in space on the right flank, and he's once again played in a super low cross towards Lewandowski. Cleared by Akanji, though. 
73' Dortmund don't want to score. Bayern are happy with 4-0. The consequence is a rather aimless passage of play over the last few minutes
69' Last change for Dortmund

ON - Marius Wolf
OFF - Lukasz Piszczek
68' First Bayern substitution. Coman's off after seeming to tweak his hamstring. 

ON - Franck Ribery
OFF - Kingsley Coman
65' Bayern are away on the break! And Lewandowski is running at Weigl. His through-ball was overhit and Burki catches it. But why was Hummels the only man racing forward to give Lewandowski company on the counter?
65' Gotze! That's a lovely cross from Piszczek, which Gotze brings down on his chest, and unleashes a thunderous strike. But it's blocked by Sule. 
62' Dortmund have made their second change of the day

ON - Mario Gotze
OFF - Mohammed Dahoud
60' That's the first time Reus has been found anywhere near the Bayern goal all night. But he's offside. 
59' Bayern have almost reduced this game to walking pace right now. They're happy with this. 
56' Lewandowski! So close! That's superb play from Bayern. Coman plays a through ball to Alaba on the left flank, and his low cross across goal evades Lewandowski by a boot lace's length.
52' Gnabry should've scored! A superb corner from Thiago finds Gnabry in all the space in the world on the far-post. His volley, though, isn't hit well enough and has bounced over the bar. 
52' The corner's taken short, and Muller's cross to Hummels at the far-post is headed behind for another corner by Piszczek
52' Bayern have another corner, and this is potentially dangerous for Dortmund. Gnabry gets running on the right flank, but Delaney slides in and concedes the corner. 
49' Piszczek has been robbed by Coman on the halfway line, and as the Frenchman charges away on the left flank, Piszczek cynically brings him down
47' Almost all the possession for Dortmund in the opening couple of minutes of the half
46' PEEEEEPPPP!! And we're back underway, as Reus gets the ball rolling. 
Borussia Dortmund have made a half-time change

ON - Julian Weigl
OFF - Dan-Axel Zagadou
HALF-TIME: Bayern Munich 4-0 Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund need to wake up. Lucien Favre is definitely going to give them a kick up the backside. Bayern have been sensational, though. To a man, they've been superb.

Dahoud hit the post with a sitter early in the half, but from then on, it has been all Bayern. Hummels gave them the lead. Lewandowski doubled it with his 200th Bundesliga goal. Martinez and Gnabry added gloss to it late in the half. This game is over, already, I'm sure. Is that the title race over and done with, then?
45+2' PEEEEPPPP!! That's half-time! The Allianz Arena is fervent, but I'm sure they really didn't want that half to end. 
45' There will be two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half
43' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! SERGE GNABRY NOW! THIS IS DEMOLITION! BAYERN ARE RAMPANT!

Coman drives in-field, finds Lewandowski, who immediately puts it out to Muller on the right flank. He cuts in on his left foot, and puts in an inch-perfect cross, that Gnabry powers past Burki! This is not a ruse! Don't adjust your screens. It is Bayern Munich FOUR, Borussia Dortmund nil. 
41' GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!!! JAVI MARTINEZ GETS IN ON THE ACT!

Another set-piece. Dortmund have again collapsed. Thiago's chipped it to Muller whose initial volley was saved by Burki. The rebound is headed back by Muller to Thiago, whose shot is blocked. The rebound falls to Martinez, who takes it first time, and curls it right into the bottom corner. 
40' Zagadou has gone in the book. Muller won the ball in midfield, and then looked to play Lewandowski through straightaway. Zagadou has hauled the Bayern striker back!
39' Hummels! He might have had four in this first half! The corner was only half cleared by Dortmund. It went out to Alaba on the left, and he put in an inch-perfect cross for Hummels to attack in the centre, but his header is wide. 
38' Lewandowski! That's a lovely cross to the far-post from Coman. Lewandowski has climbed magnificently, and looked to beat Burki at his near post with the header. But the Dortmund 'keeper's got something on it, and Bayern have a corner. 
35' Bayern spring forward on the break! Muller's drove forward, and played a superb through ball to Alaba. But his attempted low cross to Coman is woefully hit, and Dortmund can clear. And survive. 
34' Dortmund have a corner. Finally, Sancho puts in a superb cross into the box, and Delaney arrives late, but the cross is headed behind by Sule
32' Kimmich's corner from the right is cleared away, as far as Sule. His volley from way out is fiercely struck, but has gone over the bar. 
31' Hummels again! Saved by Burki! Another corner from the left, another super delivery from Thiago, another lovely header from Hummels. But Burki's across, and palms it behind. Another corner. 
31' Bayern win another corner, as Coman runs at Piszczek, and plays it off him and behind
29' Sancho can take a shot there! He chooses to cross, after being set up beautifully by Reus. He chooses a dinked cross instead, and Neuer's off his line to catch. 
28' A little more control from Dortmund over the last couple of minutes, Bayern have dropped off from the high press. 
25' More lax defending from Dortmund. This is so casual, so poor. Gnabry pounces on a Diallo mistake, but can't hold on to the ball for too long. 
24' Piszczek wins the ball off Muller high up the field. But there's no conviction in his eventual shot. Which is a left-foot roller to Neuer, who is only too happy to collect and set Bayern on their way again
19' Muller's hit the bar! That's another superb near-post ball from Thiago. Muller's glancing header is similar to Hummels's goal, and he's slammed it against the crossbar. 
19' Dortmund are all over the place! They've given it away to Kimmich who finds Lewandowski, and he's got the volley away which Burki has saved! Corner. 
17' GOOOOOAAAALLLLL! ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI! TWO DORTMUND OLD BOYS ARE BITING THEM HARD!

A gift from Zagadou! He's given the ball straight to Lewandowski. He's raced forward, chipped it over Burki, and then volleyed it home! Command for Bayern! 200 Bundesliga goals for Lewandowski! What a star!
15' That's a stunning Bayern counter-attack. It was set off by Lewandowski holding it up, and then finding Gnabry, who plays it wide to Coman. He runs at Piszczek, and cuts it back but Delaney has cleared it. Bayern have a corner. 
15' Possession so far - 70% to Bayern Munich. Yet, they could, should really, have been a goal down before Hummels scored. A penny for Dahoud's thoughts right now?
13' That's another lovely set-piece by Thiago, from the left flank! He's put that in with so much pace, and on target. Burki has to take evasive action. 
10' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!! MATS HUMMELS HAS BAYERN IN THE LEAD! THIS WAS COMING!

Thiago with another superb corner from the left flank, and Hummels meets it with a glancing header, just like the earlier one. This time, though, he glances it right over Burki's head! Priceless lead for Bayern!
9' Thiago's free-kick into a dangerous area is met by Lewandowski! But it's high and Burki has no problems. 
8' Another Bayern free-kick now in a dangerous area on the right flank. This time, it's Diallo who fouls Kimmich
6' DAHOUD HAS MISSED A SITTER! HOW? JUST HOW?! A superb counter-attack from Dortmund sees Bruun Larsen find Reus on the left flank. He runs at Sule and then cuts it back to the penalty spot, where Dahoud is arriving late. His side-foot has gone well wide of Neuer's goal though. Really should have scored. 
6' Muller is found with a super run in behind the defence by Kimmich. He looks to cut it back to Lewandowski, but plays it behind him. 
4' Bayern have a free-kick, as they keep pressing in a superb high-intensity start. They've had almost all the possession. When they've lost the ball, they're haring around the Allianz pitch, not allowing Dortmund to live in peace. 
2' That's a sitter, and Lewandowski hasn't taken it! Zagadou's clearance has hit Thiago in the middle of the park, and reaches Muller. He plays a super through ball too Lewandowski, but his first touch is dreadful, and Diallo can shield him away. Burki collects. 
1' HUMMELS! That's a superb delivery from Thiago, and Hummels glances a header at the near post, but that's gone just wide. Early chance for Bayern. 
1' Bayern have a corner from that throw-in. Abdou Diallo clears it behind off Alaba's cross
1' PEEEEPPP! And we're off! Bayern get us underway, and have an early throw in on the left flank in attacking third.
The toss is done with, and now we have the main event only seconds away! Bayern will kick us off...
The teams walk out of the tunnel at the Allianz!
We're just about set to begin in Munich! Neuer and Reus lead their respective lines in the largesse of the tunnel at the Allianz Arena. 
Despite the injuries they're suffering at the moment, that's a pretty strong Dortmund starting XI. Bayern are full of battle-hardened experienced winners. Which way is this going?
Right. Half an hour to kickoff, then. How are the nerves feeling, Bayern fans? Anything less than a win tonight, and that could be the Bavarians letting go of their hold of the Bundesliga title for the first time in 8 years.
