The essentials in brief: And mia san champions again: In a memorable and breathtaking title finish, FC Bayern Munich secured their eleventh German championship title in a row thanks to young star Jamal Musiala. At the end of an overall messed-up season, Bayern trembled after a not-so-masterful performance to a 2-1 (1-0) win at 1. FC Köln and benefited from rival Borussia Dortmund’s 2-2 win over Mainz 05. Bayern succeeded at 33rd league title for only the third time after 1986 and 2000, finally triumphing despite not going into the final round as leaders.

After Kingsley Coman took the lead (8′), Dejan Ljubicic’s hand penalty (81′) seemed to snatch the title away from Bayern, then Musiala, who had been on the bench four minutes earlier, scored (89′). Thus, coach Thomas Tuchel, who was hired in March, won his first German championship title after being eliminated from the Champions League and the DFB Cup. It remains to be seen whether CEO Oliver Kahn, who was absent from Cologne with the flu on Saturday, and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic will save the job at the supervisory board meeting on Tuesday.

BVB or FC Bayern: All information at a glance

Who will be German champion? Borussia Dortmund. Or not? Despite a two-point deficit before the final day of the Bundesliga title race, FC Bayern are not giving up. A win in Cologne could help if BVB fails at home against Mainz.

That speaks for Borussia Dortmund

The home strength of Borussia was last reliable. In the largest Bundesliga stadium, Dortmund have won all of the past eleven games without exception. Another win over Mainz would set the club record. There is also another record: BVB have never recorded 15 home wins and 46 home points in a Bundesliga season. Another plus is the accurate offensive: Since the end of the winter break, coach Edin Terzic’s team has scored an impressive 56 goals in 18 games.

That speaks against Borussia Dortmund

BVB was a good hunter this season, but a nervous league leader. During the winter break, the gap to FC Bayern was a whopping nine points. Since then, BVB has worked its way up from sixth to first place and is now two points ahead of Munich.

However, two points in the table have already been lost again. The point conquered on the 25th match day was lost again two weeks later in the crashing 2:4 in Munich. After beating Frankfurt 4-0 on April 22, BVB again overtook the record champions, but stumbled again on the following matchday in a 1-1 draw in Bochum.

That speaks for FC Bayern

Actually nothing more – and that could be the chance for FC Bayern. Because who – if not Munich – can Bundesliga final. A point on the last day of the 1999/2000 season at SpVgg Unterhaching would have been enough for Leverkusen to win their first German championship.

But Bayern took advantage of Leverkusen’s 2-0 defeat with a 3-1 victory of their own and still triumphed. In the stoppage time of the 2000/01 season, Bayern snatched the league from FC Schalke at the last moment. Another Bayern plus: BVB often didn’t have their nerves under control when it mattered.

That speaks against FC Bayern

Ten years after the first treble in the club’s history, the Munich team were eliminated from the cup and Champions League and lost their lead in the 1-3 draw against Leipzig a week ago. The performance upset coach Thomas Tuchel. Even if the stars manage to win again in Cologne, they no longer have the title in their own hands.

And with a performance like against the cup winners Leipzig, a win in Cologne is anything but certain. Bayern already had big problems with FC in the first leg, Joshua Kimmich saved just one point with his equalizer at the last minute.
