The win for Bayern pushes them closer to winning an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title, which they will secure if they win four of their final six matches.

Dortmund, under the guidance of now-Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, won the Bundesliga in 2010-11 and again the following season in 2011-12 but Bayern have won the title every year since.
