Musiala scored two goals and was involved in the other as Bayern held on for a 3-2 win at third-place Wolfsburg. Following Leipzig’s scoreless draw with Hoffenheim the night before, it meant Bayern is closing in on a record-extending ninth consecutive title with just five rounds of the season remaining.

Tell me, Hansi Flick!

 Tell me, Hansi Flick! DFB and FC Bayern eggs at the national coach search rum.

How easy everything could be. But nothing seems more just these days. I am depressed. Two German defeats in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, the constant blam of the national team, boredom in the league and the DFB trainer chaos have hollowed me.

Hansi Flick has confirmed he will leave Bayern Munich after falling out with the club's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic. Flick was frustrated with how the club dealt with the summer transfer window last season, having allowed Thiago Alcantara to leave . The manager was also irritated by Bayern 's inability to find suitable cover for their star striker Robert Lewandowski. Speaking after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Wolfsburg, he said : 'I told the team today that I informed the club during the week, after the game in Paris, I would like to terminate my contract at the end of the season.'

Flick , who led Bayern to a Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble in his first campaign with the team, has told the champions-elect he will leave at the end of the season amid reports that he has fallen out with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic. Flick is widely expected to replace Jogi Low in the German national side top job after the conclusion of this summer's European Championships, with Flick having acted as Low's assistant for more than a decade including during their 2014 triumph at the World Cup in Brazil. He had initially joined Bayern as an assistant to Kovac

Flick has a contract with Bayern to 2023 but has clashed with sporting director Hasan Salihamidžic. He has also been linked with the Germany national team job, which will be vacant once Joachim Löw steps down after this summer's European Championship.

The 18-year-old Musiala opened the scoring in the 15th minute when he eluded three Wolfsburg defenders before squeezing his shot under goalkeeper Koen Casteels.

Musiala was again involved for Bayern’s second in the 24th, playing in David Alaba. Casteels cut out the Austrian defender’s cross but dropped the ball right at the feet of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who gratefully tapped it in.

Wout Weghorst pulled one back against the run of play in the 35th, but Thomas Müller crossed for Musiala to head in his second goal two minutes later. All Wolfsburg coach Oliver Glasner could do was shake his head.

But his team regrouped after the break. Bayern left too much room for Paulo Otavio to cross from the left for Maximilian Philipp to score in the 54th. Jérôme Roussillon missed another good chance for Wolfsburg as Bayern held on for the win.

FUTURE EMPLOYERS MEET

Borussia Mönchengladbach beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-0 in the first game since it was announced that Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter will be taking over from Gladbach coach Marco Rose next season. Rose is leaving to take over Borussia Dortmund, which has a chance Sunday to close the gap on Frankfurt in the last place for Champions League qualification by beating Werder Bremen.

UNION WANTS MORE

Union Berlin had already achieved its goal of hitting the safety level of 40 points with a draw against Bayern last week. Now the club is thinking of European qualification after a 2-1 win over Stuttgart.

Christopher Trimmel delivered a captain’s performance despite having his broken nose straightened on Tuesday. Trimmel played with a mask. He did brilliantly to cross for Grischa Prömel to score at the back post with a diving header and also set up Union’s second when he crossed for Petar Musa before the break.

“If we land among the (qualification) places in the end, we'd be super happy,” Prömel said after his 100th competitive game for Union.

LEVERKUSEN WINS DERBY

Leon Bailey scored twice as Bayer Leverkusen beat Cologne 3-0 in the Rhine derby, dealing the visitors' survival hopes a blow in Friedhelm Funkel's debut as coach.

Cologne remained last but one, four points behind Arminia Bielefeld, which left the relegation zone earlier with a 0-0 draw at Augsburg. That left Hertha Berlin to take it place. Hertha’s next three games were called off due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at the club.

Also, Freiburg routed last-place Schalke 4-0. Schalke's 20th defeat brings its relegation even closer.
