That's full time. A simple and easy win, ultimately deflating, like much of Bayern's season. Schweinsteiger got his goal, though, which might be a fitting end to his career should he choose to leave in the summer.

Karius comes out close to the halfway line to clear the ball. He has revolutionised goalkeeping even more than it had already been revolutionised.

Neuer pulls off a great save. De Blasis brings down a ball into the box, and he spins his marker, sending a shot to the roof off his net, that Neuer tips away. At the other end, Pizzaro is one-on-one with the 'keeper, but Karius gets down well to save.

Rafinha uses some impressive trickery on the right to send in a cross, but it comes to nothing. A metaphor for life.

Lewandowski strains to reach a cross at the back post, that forces Karius into tipping the ball over as a precaution, but the ref still awards a goal kick.

Baumgartlinger has the ball inside the box, and he wastes his chance by drilling a shot straight at Neuer. He revolutionised goalkeeping with that save!

GOAL! Bayern Munich 2-0 Mainz - Schweinsteiger scores. Lewandowski brings down a high ball into the box, and as he tries to control it, it rolls to Schweinsteiger, who fires it into the net.

The free kick is chipped low, to the back post, with Schweinsteiger straining for it. It took a touch on the way, so Bayern have a corner on the left wing. Alonso takes, and Karius punches clear.

Bayern have won the league and Mainz are safe, without the possibility of getting into Europe either. So the atmosphere will obviously be electric.
