Can’t get enough analysis of this insane sequence of events at Bayern Munich? Well, then check out our latest podcast episode! In this special recording session we talk about Bayerns shaky performance vs Koln, the ruthless sacking of Oliver Kahn and Brazzo, concerns about entering the summer without a sporting director, the drama surrounding everything, and implications for player contracts like Davies and Musiala.

Full time: Bayern Munich win 2-1.
80’ — Penalty to Koln, they score. It’s over.
72’ — What. The sprinklers randomly turned on. Never seen that before. The referee had to stop play.
59’ — Sommer with an incredible save.
45’ — The second half is underway.
Halftime: Bayern Munich may be winning but they look so so so bad. Between Muller’s header on the post and Sane’s disallowed goal, the team created zero chances and let Koln run roughshod over the defense. Awful game from the team.
45’+1’— VAR rules Sane’s goal out, handball in the buildup.
44’ — GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Leroy Sane makes it 2-0! Gnabry with an incredible pass!
9’ — GOOOOOOOOOOAL! Kingsley Coman makes it 1-0, fine assist by Sane.
Kickoff: We’re underway!
One hour until kickoff: We have lineups! Thomas Tuchel has surprisingly benched Jamal Musiala for Ryan Gravenberch, and also Joao Cancelo is nowhere to be seen. Otherwise, the lineup is as expected. Here’s Bayern Munich’s starting XI for the final game of the season.

As it stands, Bayern Munich will fail to win the Bundesliga this season. For the first time since 2012, Borussia Dortmund look like they finally break a decade long hegemony that has strangled the title race in Germany. But it’s not quite over yet. As all the teams kick off at the same time during the final matchday, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are close enough in the table that a loss for BVB and a win for Bayern swaps their respective positions in the table.
This is it. Last chance. It’s really all about luck now — the title isn’t in our hands.
It’s Bayern time.
