Bayern Munich surpasses Cologne in the Bundesliga

BERLIN-. Raphaël Guerreiro and Thomas muller led the 2-0 victory of Bayern Munich on Saturday against Cologne, which is in danger of relegation, and with which Bayer Leverkusen will have to wait another day to celebrate its Bundesliga title.

A defeat for Bayern and another for Stuttgart, which is third, would have confirmed Bayer's title. But with Bayern's victory, Leverkusen will have to wait for their own result on Sunday when they host Werder Bremen to confirm their first title.

Bayern, who drew 2-2 in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals in London against Arsenal on Tuesday, ended their two-match losing streak in the Bundesliga.

Visiting Cologne had two chances to go ahead before Harry Kane's shot forced Marvin Schwäbe to prevent the goal. Mathys Tel hit the post before halftime.

Bayern winger Kingsley Coman had to go off due to injury early on, a blow ahead of Arsenal's visit on Wednesday. Guerreiro finally opened the scoring with a fine shot in the 65th minute.

Müller sealed the result on a counterattack in added time.

Bayern cut the deficit to Leverkusen to 13 points, although Xabi Alonso's team needs just one win in its last six games to confirm the title.

Leipzig defended fourth place by beating Wolfsburg 3-0. Only the first four places are guaranteed a ticket to the next Champions League.

Two goals in the first half from Marcel Sabitzer were enough for Dortmund to beat Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1. Dortmund's Kari Adeyemi was sent off in the 55th for his second yellow card. Dortmund remains behind Leipzig on goal difference.

Ivory Coast hero Sébastien Haller's first start for Dortmund since winning the African Cup of Nations lasted just eight minutes due to injury.

Bochum defender Keven Schlotterbeck scored both goals in the 1-1 draw with Heidenheim and Bochum avoided falling into the relegation zone where Mainz remains despite the 4-1 victory against Hoffenheim.
