Join us for minute to minute coverage as Bayern Munich host Borussia Monchengladbach and get closer to lifting the title!

LIVE
90'
FT: Bayern 2-1 Monchengladbach. After a gripping first half, with Sommer's error for Zirkzee's opener and then a Pavard own goal, the second period was a tougher watch. But Goretzka popped up with a crucial winner. Bayern can now clinch the title at Werder on Tuesday.
89'
CLOSE! Gladbach are suddenly back on the attack! So quiet as Bayern probed for a winner, they have a swift response. Stindl runs onto a long ball in behind and lashes narrowly wide.
88'
Flick now hopes to protect that lead. Perisic is off for Martinez.
86'
Pavard makes amends for his first-half own goal with a brilliant assist. Alaba's pass from the left evaded Goretzka, but Pavard kept going and beat Wendt to the ball. Two Bayern players outnumbered one Gladbach defender in the centre.
86'
GOOAAALLLL!!! GORETZKA! Is that the winner? 2-1 Bayern! Pavard refuses to give up on Alaba's misplaced pass, racing down the right and squaring for Goretzka to touch into the bottom-left corner. Gladbach's resolve is broken as Bayern close on the title.
83'
The substitute is substituted. Benes comes on for Embolo as Gladbach look to continue to frustrate Bayern.
77'
Zirkzee, the Bayern goalscorer, makes way. Wriedt is on up front as the hosts look for a winner.
75'
Bayern are controlling the game, but the chances have just dried up a little. A speculative ball from deep is beyond Coman, with the hosts just running out of ideas.
70'
Herrmann has been Gladbach's chief threat today, but Davies has started to control that flank. Wendt comes on in a change of shape.
69'
Coman smartly beats Lainer to the ball and his flick prompts a foul and a yellow card.
66'
It's all Bayern now! Gnabry's low shot deflects towards the bottom-left corner, where Sommer just stretches to intervene. A corner is cleared.
62'
It's a double Bayern switch as Coman, another player rested today, replaces full debutant Cuisance.
62'
An unsurprising first Bayern change sees Hernandez off for the in-form Davies. The Canadian will be tasked with halting Herrmann.
56'
Gladbach have been the better side since the break. They are flying into challenges and catching Bayern in awkward positions.
53'
SAVE! Neuer comes to Bayern's rescue! Embolo slips in Herrmann, whose powerful shot is beaten away by the goalkeeper. Bayern, so secure down the left when Davies has played, are struggling in that position today.
48'
Gladbach threaten! Bensebaini whips in a low cross which Neuer can only parry, with the goalkeeper then reacting smartly to kick clear as an attacker lurks. The ball arrives at the feet of Lainer 25 yards from goal and his fierce drive just clears the crossbar.
46'
The visitors make a change at the break, with Jantschke on for Elvedi.
46'
Gladbach get us started again for the second half!
45'
HT: Bayern 1 - 1 Gladbach. An entertaining first half comes to a close. Bayern were gifted the opener as Sommer granted Zirkzee an open goal after Gladbach had seen an initial effort ruled out at the other end. But Pavard's own error levelled the scores, leaving the leaders with work still to do in the second 45.
45'
The first card of the game goes to Bensebaini, who is late to a challenge on Pavard and goes into the book
39'
WIDE! Cuisance squanders another huge chance to score against his former club! Perisic and Hernandez create an overload down the left, with the former sending over a wonderful cross. Cuisance is unmarked and has time to direct a header goalwards but cannot hit the target.
37'
GOOAAALLLL!!! PAVARD OWN GOAL! It's 1-1! This first half has been littered with errors, and the latest comes from the Bayern right-back. He brilliantly beats Embolo to a cross moments earlier but then completely loses his bearings from a low Hermann centre, sliding the ball into the bottom-right corner.
35'
An opportunity lost for Gladbach! Kimmich is the latest man to cheaply give up possession, allowing Stindl to run towards the Bayern box. He slides a pass right to Hermann instead of going alone, and the winger also attempts to find a team-mate rather than shooting, instead seeing a cross blocked.
32'
Despite his age, Zirkzee has been very impressive and is slowly but surely showing why Bayern have decided to trust him.
28'
This has been a chaotic start. There have been big misses at either end, a disallowed Gladbach goal, a wonderful Sommer save and then a dreadful error from the same man which led to the opener.
25'
Joshua Zirkzee opens the score minutes after Gladbach almost got ahead!
22'
SAVE! Sommer comes to Gladbach's rescue! Zirkzee's pass into the area is poor, yet Ginter's awful touch knocks the ball into Hernandez's path. The left-footed defender shoots right-footed, but the sprawling Sommer gets down to make a brilliant save.
21'
Each side are attempting long balls that are coming to little. There is little space to work with right now.
11'
CHANCE! Cuisance perhaps should score against his former club! Sommer's awful pass gives Bayern possession on the edge of the area, and Kimmich picks out Perisic with a lovely cross. The winger chooses to chest the ball on to Cuisance rather than controlling and shooting himself, though, and the 20-year-old sends an awkward left-footed volley just wide.
10'
Thuram is unable to continue. Gladbach at least have Embolo fit again to come on, although he and the team would have preferred to delay his return.
6'
NO GOAL! Gladbach thought they had the opener! Embolo teased a gorgeous pass through the Bayern defence for Hofmann, who keeps his cool and sends Neuer the wrong way. But a VAR review shows the scorer is just offside, and Bayern are off the hook.
5'
Thuram went down in the opening seconds and is now really struggling again. He stretches towards a low pass and appears to twist his knee. The striker will need treatment. With Plea out, an early blow here would represent a major setback for Gladbach.
2'
The first flashpoint sees Boateng addressed by the referee after chopping down Thuram, who takes his time to get back to his feet. The Frenchman, who usually plays out wide, looks to have started through the centre in Plea's absence.
1'
And we're off!
Prev.
Teenager Zirkzee given another opportunity to shine and Cuisance making his full debut against his former club. Davies drops to the bench, meanwhile. Gladbach are without Alassane Plea.
Prev.
Both teams are robbed of key attacking pieces due to suspension today. Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski are both out for Bayern.
Prev.
Bayern starting XI: Manuel Neuer; Benjamin Pavard, Jerome Boateng, Lucas Hernandez, David Alaba; Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Serge Gnabry, Mickael Cuisance, Ivan Perisic; Joshua Zirkzee.
Prev.
Gladbach starting XI: Yann Sommer; Stefan Lainer, Matthias Ginter, Nico Elvedi, Ramy Bensebaini; Christoph Kramer, Florian Neuhaus; Patrick Hermann, Lars Stindl, Jonas Hofmann; Marcus Thuram.
