90th minute + 2: Tooooorrrrr!!! FC Bayern 6-0 FC Schalke, scorer: Mazraoui. The half dozen is full. Mané gets through to the penalty area for Mazraoui, who looks for Schwolow. The Moroccan sneaks the ball beautifully into the inside post.
90th minute: Three minutes of injury time.
90th minute: Müller! The veteran plays the ball exactly into Schwolow's army. Obviously, he lacked the last bit of strength.
87th minute: Again the ball is in the goal. Sané sends on Mazraoui, who shoots at Schwolow from close range. Goretzka makes the rebound with his head. However, the Germany international was clearly offside in the scene.

76th minute: The steam is out. Bavaria only does what is necessary. And Schalke simply don't bring any danger to the pitch. So it will probably be a clear victory for the Munich team, who will be able to see what BVB does against Gladbach tonight.

FC Bayern vs FC Schalke live ticker: Serge Gnabry's brace
65th minute: Tooooorrrrr!!! FC Bayern 4-0 FC Schalke, scorer: Gnabry. Now it becomes clear. Pavard heads the ball out according to a royal blue standard. Yoshida stumbles the ball in a duel with Gnabry, who sprints up and away. The Swabian curves around Schwolow and pushes in safely. That's a statement in the championship fight!
64th minute: Bayern make a substitution: Gravenberch is allowed to replace Coman.
63rd minute: It has to be 4-0! Müller manoeuvres the ball past the right post after a Coman cross-pass. That's when he pulls his hair out.
61st minute: A long ball doesn't reach Coman. The Bavarians have shifted down two gears. The Südkurve is already celebrating: "German Football Champion, F-C-B!"
58th minute: Bayern are now slowing down a bit. This victory should not be taken away from the Munich team, who are in the championship duel with Dortmund.
53rd minute: Bülter comes in front of the goal. However, his cross pass is caught by goalie Sommer. The Gelsenkirchen team can't build up any pressure.
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: Serge Gnabry also scores
50th minute: Tooooorrrrr!!! FC Bayern 3-0 FC Schalke, scorer: Gnabry. The decision? Cancelo holds his own strongly on the left wing on the baseline. The Portuguese plays back to Gnabry, who lets a Schalke opponent run into the void and finishes flat.

46th minute: Schalke come out of the dressing room with steam. A shot by Latza is blocked in the penalty area. Does S04 still believe in a chance?
46th minute: Schalke make a substitution: Yoshida replaces Brunner.

45th minutes: Four minutes of injury time.
44th minute: Clever attack. Coman chips the ball into the five-yard area, Gnabry heads towards goal. But Schwolow is down and grabs the ball. There was more steam missing behind the conclusion.
40th minute: The game has calmed down. Bayern will go into administration mode before the break. Schalke's centre-forward Michael Frey keeps getting bogged down.
36th minute: Tactical foul by Bülter. For this, the attacker sees the yellow card and is suspended for the next matchday - in the middle of the relegation battle.
33rd minute: Bayern's next counterattack. But Comann's last pass to Gnabry is too inaccurate. Do the Munich team make everything clear in the first half?
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: Kimmich adds from the point
29th minute:Tooooorrrrr!!! FC Bayern 2-0 FC Schalke, scorer: Kimmich (penalty). The midfield strategist converts safely in the bottom right. The Swabian sends Schwolow from the point into the wrong corner.
28th minute: Penalty for Bayern. The referee gives the penalty.
26th minute: Musiala goes down in the Schalke penalty area. The youngster gets an arm in his face. Referee Dingert watches the scene again on video.
24th minute: Schalke counters. But Bülter fouls Mazraoui. "Royal Blue" tries to provide relief. However, this is rather moderately successful.
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: Thomas Müller scores the lead
21st minute: Tooooorrrrr!!! FC Bayern 1-0 FC Schalke, scorer: Müller. The leadership! Müller introduces the scene. Musiala lets the ball through, which Sané puts into the back area. In it, Raumdeuter Müller crosses and manoeuvres the ball past Schwolow with the inside of it. That had been indicated.
18th minute: View of the other seats. Bochum leads 1-0 against Augsburg in the relegation battle. The same goes for Wolfsburg vs. Hoffenheim and Union vs. Freiburg.
15th minute: Müller! A ping-pong ball lands with the world champion, who aims for the short corner. Schwolow deflects the ball around the post. Bavaria is overwhelmingly superior.
13th minute: Another big chance for Munich! Mazraoui crosses from the right of the baseline just in front of goal. But Gnabry misses the ball two yards from the box. Bavaria presses.
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke live ticker: Coman misses a huge chance
11th minute: Huge chance for Bayern! Müller crosses the baseline into the box, curves around keeper Schwolow and lays off for Coman. But the Frenchman shoots at the only Schalke player on the line from close range.
9th minute: Incidentally, Schalke striker Terodde sits on the bench. This would allow "Royal Blue" to really step up again later on.
7th minute: First chance for Bayern! Gnabry tries a powerful shot. But Schwolow is down and fends off.
6th minute: Bayern stand tall and let the ball and opponents run. That's good for the Munich team, but they haven't been able to get through to the goal yet. Schalke hardly wins a duel offensively.
3rd minute: There was more to it! Gnabry is actually already through on a counterattack, but forgets the ball. His pass to Müller is then too sloppy. The first dangerous scene of the Munich.
1st minute: It starts in Munich with the next championship thriller this season!
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: BVB must add to their tally in the evening
Update from May 13, 15:15 p.m.: Does S04 have even the slightest chance at Bayern? For Schalke, it's against relegation here and now. The Gelsenkirchen-based team are in 30th place in the table with 15 points this Saturday afternoon.
"They play man against man all over the pitch. That's brave to play like that. They play very intensively, take their standards very seriously and are dangerous," said Munich's coach before the game on Sky. On Friday evening, Hertha BSC lost 2-5 in Cologne, which is why the Berliners are facing relegation more than ever this season.

FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: BVB must add to their tally in the evening
Update from 13 May, 14:55 CET: Borussia Dortmund (64 points) have to follow suit today, which sporting director Sebastian Kehl does not like at all his own statements. BVB are challenged in Saturday's top match at home against Borussia Mönchengladbach from 18:30 CET.
Will the Westphalians be under even more pressure after a victory for Bayern (65)? Or does "Royal Blue" actually provide support for the eternal rival? "If Schalke beats FC Bayern next weekend and BVB becomes champion as a result, then I'll invite the current Schalke team to the town hall so that they can sign the Golden Book," said Dortmund's Lord Mayor Thomas Westphal at the exhibition "Myth & Modernity. Football in the Ruhr area" at the Zollverein colliery. Too daring?
FC Bayern vs FC Schalke in the live ticker: Kolo Muani soon a Munich player?
Update from May 13, 14:45 p.m.: Of course, the transfer market will pick up speed again in mid-May. According to a France expert, Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt) is leaning towards a transfer to FC Bayern.
"Kolo Muani is being traded, but not as a priority. He leans more towards FC Bayern. That's why PSG are pushing the personnel of Victor Osimhen," explained sports journalist Alexis Menuge (L'Equipe, among others) in an interview with fr.de and tz.de of Ippen Media.
Today, Serge Gnaby is probably at the front. But the Swabian is not a classic centre-forward either. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, on the other hand, has only been injured since his contract extension.

Update from May 13, 14:30 p.m.: So Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala both play, not either/or. This means that the two creatives will be flanked behind the top on the wings by Kingsley Coman and Leroy Sané. Serge Gnabry is likely to play up front.
Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala start: Thomas Tuchel brings both creatives
Update from 13 May, 14:20 CET: Bayern's line-up is in: FCB coach Thomas Tuchel brings in Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala from the start, while Dayot Upamecano, Sadio Mané and Leon Goretzka are on the bench for the time being. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is missing from the squad for the Schalke game due to injury. The question remains: Will Serge Gnabry play in attack or Müller?
Bayern line-up: Sommer - Mazraoui, Pavard, de Ligt, Cancelo - Kimmich - Coman, Musiala, Müller, Sané - Gnabry
FC Bayern vs. FC Schalke in the live ticker: Champion thriller in Munich
First reported on 13 May: Munich – Can FC Bayern submit? The Bundesliga championship battle is more exciting than it has probably been for eleven years, when Borussia Dortmund last won the trophy.
On Saturday (from 15.30 CET), the Munich team have to play against FC Schalke. At the press conference ahead of the game against the Royal Blues, FCB coach Thomas Tuchel hinted at Thomas Müller's starting eleven.
Is Thomas Müller allowed to play: Thomas Tuchel hints at veteran starting eleven use
"First and foremost, it's up to Thomas himself. He is playing for his twelfth German championship here and is completely focused on winning it with him. I think everything else is completely exaggerated and overshot the mark," Tuchel said at the PK about the constant discussions about the Bavarian identification figure: "He is an important component, even if he came off the bench a few times. But to deduce an end to a career from this misses the goal by a long way."
To put it in perspective, the 33-year-old Müller has not been in the starting line-up twice under Tuchel in the Bundesliga. In the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City, he also came off the bench twice. "It was good for Thomas to do without a bit. He's done three full sessions and he's ready for tomorrow," Tuchel said.

So is Müller, who was born in Weilheim and lives in Otterfing south of Munich, allowed to start again against S04 from the start? For the "oldie", youngster Jamal Musiala could move out of the starting line-up, who has seemed a bit inhibited for weeks.
