              The race for a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title has come to a close for Bayern Munich, with Bayern just looking to close the gap to Bayer Leverkusen as much as possible. Koln, however, are looking to get out of the automatic relegation zone and close in on safety.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Bayern have three wins and two losses.

              In the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16, Bayern hosted Lazio. The Italian side were limited to five shots, without a single shot on target as a brace from Kane and a goal from Thomas Muller gave Bayern the 3 - 0 win.

              Back in the Bundesliga, Bayern took on Mainz. Nadiem Amiri did get on the scoresheet for Mainz, but his first half goal was merely a consolation. A hat-trick from Kane, a brace from Leon Goretzka and goals from Muller, Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry secured a massive 8 - 1 win for Bayern.

              Tim Skarke did open the scoring for Darmstadt but Musiala’s first goal and a goal from Kane made it 2 - 1 to Bayern before the halftime whistle. Musiala grabbed another goal in the second half and was joined on the scoresheet by Gnabry and Methys Tel in the 5 - 2 win for Bayern, Oscar Vilhelmsson scoring in the 95th minute for Darmstadt.

              In a fixture Bayern have dominated recently, especially at home, saw them handed a shock defeat. Karim Adeyemi and Julian Ryerson both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Borussia Dortmund, their first at the Allianz Arena in ten years.

              Goals from Kane and Gnabry gave Bayern the 2 - 0 lead over Heidenheim at halftime. However, a brace from Tim Kleindienst and a goal from Kevin Sessa gave Heidenheim the shock 3 - 2 win.

              Bayern drew 2-2 away at Arsenal in the Champions League Quarter Finals on Tuesday as Serge Gnabry's and Harry Kane's goals were cancelled out by strikes from Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Koln have one win, three draws and one loss.

              Koln hosted top of the league Bayer Leverkusen and saw themselves down to ten men after just 14 minutes with Jan Thielmann shown a red card. Jeremie Frimpong and Alex Grimaldo both scored to give Leverkusen the 2 - 0 win.

              The visit to Borussia Monchengladbach saw Faride Alidou open the scoring in the seventh minute, but Franck Honorat equalised before halftime. Alidou scored again just after the hour mark to regain the lead for Koln, but a brace from Robin Hack gave Monchengladbach the 3 - 2 lead with 15 minutes to go. However, a late goal from Damion Downs gave Koln a big 3 - 3 draw.

              Xavi Simons gave RB Leipzig the lead in the 15th minute but Sargis Adamyan equalised for Koln just three minutes later. However, in the second half, a brace from Lois Openda and goals from Amadou Haidara and Yussuf Poulsen secured the 5 - 1 win for RB Leipzig.

              Koln were behind yet again, with Arne Maier opening the scoring for Augsburg in the 18th minute. Davie Selke did equalise for Koln before halftime but Koln were unable to convert any of their other 11 chances and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

              The last time out for Koln was against Bochum. Felix Passlack gave Bochum the lead early in the second half, however goals from Steffan Tigges and Luca Walschmidt after the 90th minute to give Koln the 2 - 1 win.
