Commentary

Thanks for joining us for live coverage of the 2-2 draw between Bayern Munich and Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.
With the draw, Stuttgart pick up what could be a crucial point come the end of the season. They remain in the relegation play-off spot though, and will host seventh-placed Cologne on the final day as they look for a miraculous escape. The title is already secured for the hosts, and they will travel to Wolfsburg in their last game of the season as they look to finish on a high note.
The referee blows the whistle to end the match, as the teams share the spoils after a 2-2 draw. The visitors took an unlikely lead early on against the champions, after Marmoush pulled the ball back for Tomas on the edge of the box. Tomas took it first time, and sent a powerful drive into the back of the net. The hosts hit back though, when Gnabry cut onto his left foot and fired into the back of the net via a Mavropanos deflection. Bayern Munich then took the lead just before half-time, when Muller brilliantly turned past Ito before poking past Neuer to make it 2-1 at the interval. Kalajdzic then got his side back on level terms early into the second half, when Sosa lofted a cross over to him. The striker outjumped Kouassi, before heading home. Both teams had chances to win the game but neither could take them and the game finishes level, despite Nagelsmann's side ending the game with ten men when Coman received a late red card for a slap on Mavropanos.

K. Coman
Red Card
90' + 5' Coman is sent off!!! The Frenchman receives a red card for a slap on Mavropanos, as he felt aggrieved at a challenge by the Greek defender. The hosts will finish this game with ten men.
90' + 5' A Coman cross to the back post is poor and flies out for a goal-kick, and that may be enough for Stuttgart to see out the remaining seconds.
90' + 3' Karazor is in some discomfort, but he's going to try and finish the game.
A. Davies
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Davies gets a yellow card for a late challenge on Karazor.

78' Kalajdzic is down after being bundled over by Upamecano in midfield.

62' Pavard sends a rasping drive towards the bottom corner, but it's blocked by Anton before it can reach Florian Muller's goal.
60' Florian Muller is alert to rush out of his goal and snuff out an opportunity, after Gnabry played a pass through to Coman in the box.
58' Sosa sends another excellent cross flashing across the face of the goal, but none of his teammates are there to meet it and it goes all the way out for a throw-in.
58' A superb pass from Kimmich slides Davies into the left of the box, but his pull-back is cleared by the well-placed Endo.
56' The visitors have come flying out of the blocks in the second half, and are looking the more likely to grab the fifth goal of the game.
54' Kalajdzic has a golden opportunity to put his side into the lead, but his low shot doesn't have the power or direction to trouble Neuer and the goalkeeper saves it relatively comfortably.
B. Sosa
Assist
52' Sosa's cross was perfect to allow Kalajdzic to leap above Kouassi and head home.
S. Kalajdzic
Goal

O. Mangala

Stuttgart are desperate for points as they try to stave off relegation. Matarazzo will surely have to gamble in the second half, but will Bayern Munich be able to pick them off and secure the victory?
The referee blows the whistle to end the first half, with the scoreline 2-1 to the hosts. They found themselves behind though after just eight minutes, when Marmoush charged down the right before squaring to Tomas. The Portuguese forward shot first time, sending a powerful effort past Neuer to give the visitors a surprising lead. They nearly found themselves 2-0 up on 23 minutes when Kalajdzic set Marmoush away, but the Egyptian couldn't keep his cool and sent a tame effort wide of the post. The hosts hit the bar through Thomas Muller while Goretzka also missed a big opportunity, but they did finally get themselves on level terms after 35 minutes when Gnabry cut onto his left foot, firing into the back of the net despite Mavropanos' attempted block on the line. They then took the lead on the stroke of half-time, when Upamecano found Thomas Muller in the area. The German turned superbly, before poking the ball past the goalkeeper to make it 2-1 at the interval.

45' The referee has added on two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
D. Upamecano
Assist
44' The ball into Thomas Muller was clever by Upamecano, and the sublime turn from the German left the Stuttgart defence and goalkeeper with no chance.
T. Müller
Goal
44' It's 2-1 to the hosts!!! It's an excellent goal too, as Thomas Muller pokes into the back of the net. The ball was played into him by Upamecano, and a brilliant turn by Thomas Muller creates the space for him to stab into the bottom corner.
42' Lewandowski weaves into the box before shooting, but he just has to dig the ball out of his own feet a little and his tame effort is comfortably caught by the goalkeeper.
41' Kouassi is momentarily down after clashing heads with Mavropanos as a free-kick came over into the box, though he's now up and back playing.

Assist
35' Lewandowski laid the ball off to Gnabry, who calmly finished.
S. Gnabry
Goal
35' The hosts are level!!! Gnabry had a sighter a moment ago, and now he has the equaliser. The ball is played out to him on the right by Lewandowski, and he cuts onto his left in the box. He fires at goal, and despite Mavropanos' attempted block on the line, the ball nestles in the back of the net to make it 1-1.
34' Gnabry cuts onto his left foot and sets his sights for the far corner, but he can't get enough bend on his curler and it goes wide of the left post. Florian Muller never looked too worried about it.
32' Nagelsmann's side are ramping up the pressure here as they try to find an equaliser. However, so far the visitors have remained resolute.
30' Bayern Munich have won 67 out of 105 Bundesliga games against Stuttgart, but will have to come from behind if they are to beat them here.
28' What a save!!! Florian Muller makes an unbelievable save to tip a Thomas Muller header round the post, after Pavard picked him out in the middle. The header looked destined for the back of the net, until the goalkeeper was able to push it wide at full stretch.
27' Mavropanos makes a vital headed clearance to nod a dangerous Pavard cross out for a throw-in, as Coman and Lewandowski lurked around him.
25' The hosts have been victorious in 18 of their last 19 Bundesliga games against Stuttgart. The one defeat came in a 4-1 home thrashing, in which Bayern were already champions.
23' What a miss! Marmoush is set through on goal by Kalajdzic, but he loses his composure at the vital moment, and his dinked effort goes wide of the left post. That was a huge opportunity to double his side's lead.
22' Davies and Thomas Muller link up nicely in the box, but there's one pass too many and the visitors are able to hack it out for a throw-in.
20' Kimmich lets fly from distance, but Endo rushes out quickly to block it. The ball loops into the air, and Florian Muller easily catches it.
18' Coman is limping a little after a heavy challenge from Fuhrich, but he looks okay to continue.
16' A Marmoush corner goes through everybody and out to Sosa, but he gets his shot wrong and it bounces well wide of Neuer's goal.
15' It's all hands to the pump right now for Stuttgart, as they try and see off the hosts' pressure. Coman nods a Pavard cross back into the middle of the box, but the visitors are able to scramble it clear before any harm can be done.
13' Bayern Munich miss another big opportunity, as Coman lays the ball off to Goretzka in the middle of the box. The German midfielder looks as if he is going to bury it, but the ball comes off the wrong part of his foot and slices wide.
12' Off the bar!!! The hosts are nearly level almost immediately after a ball sits up nicely in the box for Thomas Muller to hit. He tries an acrobatic effort, but sends it crashing off the crossbar and away from danger.
10' Could Bayern Munich be on their way to another shock defeat here?
Omar Marmoush
Assist
8' Marmoush kept his calm to find Tomas just outside the area, before his teammate fired past Neuer.
Tiago Tomás
Goal
8' Stuttgart take the lead!!! Tomas is the scorer, after Marmoush picked him out on the edge of the box. The Portuguese forward smashed it first time, sending it flying into the roof of the net past Neuer to make it 1-0.
7' Endo then gets on the end of a Sosa corner, but his left-footed volley goes just over the crossbar.
7' Kouassi makes a big tackle to deny Marmoush, as the Egyptian winger charged towards goal.
T. Nianzou
Yellow Card
6' Kouassi is the first player to go in the referee's book, for pulling back Marmoush as the visitors looked to counter.

1' The visitors kick us off and we are underway.
The two teams make their way onto the pitch at the Allianz Arena.

The visitors meanwhile are embroiled in a battle at the bottom of the table, as they look to avoid relegation. They’re on a terrible run of form, having not won in six matches, and would love a surprise result here to strengthen their chances of surviving the drop.
The hosts come into this game knowing that they have already secured the Bundesliga title, holding a nine point lead over second-placed Borussia Dortmund. Their last game was a surprise defeat to mid-table Mainz, and they’ll look to get back on track with a victory here.
