Bayern Munich took the next giant step to the ninth title in a row in the Bundesliga on Tuesday.

The leader won 2-0 against Bayer Leverkusen and saw close pursuer RB Leipzig losing 2-1 to low flyer 1. FC Köln.

Bayern, where Robert Lewandowski was still missing due to an injury, got off to a good start against number six Leverkusen and was already 2-0 ahead by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Joshua Kimmich within fifteen minutes.

Leipzig, where Justin Kluivert came in, was 1-0 behind by Jonas Hector shortly after the break.

The visitors equalized after an hour thanks to Amadou Haidara, but a minute later it became 2-1 again via Hector.

Bayern increased the lead over Leipzig to ten points with four rounds of play to go.

'Der Rekordmeister' will play at 1. FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday and will be champion a day later if Leipzig does not win at home against VfB Stuttgart.

Nagelsmann possibly new trainer Bayern

At Bayern and Leipzig, there may be a change of trainer after this season.

Hans-Dieter Flick wants to leave Bayern to probably become the national coach of Germany and Julian Nagelsmann is mentioned as a possible successor.

Eintracht Frankfurt did good business in the battle for a place in the top four and with it a ticket for the Champions League.

The new number three was 2-0 too strong for FC Augsburg thanks to Martin Hinteregger and André Silva.

Schalke 04 was relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time in 33 years.

The last player, where Klaas-Jan Huntelaar had a basic place, went down 1-0 against competitor Arminia Bielefeld and can no longer be saved.
