The referee blows the final whistle, and Bayern Munich has won 3-0 winners against Arminia Bielefeld.
In truth, it was a comfortable victory, and they could have scored more than the three goals they did.
They were set on their way early on after Lewandowski got on the end of a Davies cross.
Lewandowski nudged towards goal before the ball went in off Laursen.
The goal was initially ruled out for offside. However, a VAR check awarded the goal.
The hosts thought they were level on the verge of half-time when Okugawa dinked the ball over Neuer into the back of the net.
However, the flag went up straight away as the Japanese midfielder was offside from Pieper’s long ball.
The Bayern lead was doubled in the first-half added time when Gnabry fired home from a Kimmich through ball.
The goal was again flagged offside, only for the VAR official to overturn the linesman’s decision.
Musiala finished the game off with six minutes remaining when Kimmich and Lewandowski combined before the Pole crossed for Musiala to finish and ensure that the match ended 3-0.
ARMINIA BIELEFELD (4-2-3-1): Stefan Ortega Moreno;
Guilherme Ramos, Amos Pieper, Joakim Nilsson, Jacob Laursen;
Fabian Kunze, Manuel Prietl; Patrick Wimmer, Alessandro Schopf, Masaya Okugawa;
BAYERN MUNICH (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer;
Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Tanguy Kouassi, Alphonso Davies;
Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Marcel Sabitzer;
The goal is given. Lewandowski can reach a Davies cross. The visitors are indeed in front. His effort deflects off Laursen and goes in to put his side 1-0 up.
The goal is given. After another VAR check, Gnabry is ruled to be onside, and the visitors indeed lead 2-0.
Musiala makes it 3-0. Kimmich sets Lewandowski away down the left before the Polish striker slides the ball across the face of the goal. Musiala is there to meet it and taps it into the back of the net to surely kill the game off.
So, what’s next?
Defeat for the hosts means they remain in trouble at the bottom of the Bundesliga, staying in 17th place and three points off safety.
They travel to Koln next as they desperately try to pick up the points that would steer them from relegation.
The three points for Nagelsmann’s men extend their lead at the top to nine points.
And means that they can secure the title with a home victory over their nearest challengers Dortmund in their next match.
