Jerome Boateng: Netted a late winner for Bayern

Runaway leaders Bayern twice trailed before Jerome Boateng's first goal for the club four minutes from time earned them a narrow win.

Mathis Bolly put the visitors in front in the 16th minute, but Thomas Muller replied on the stroke of half-time. Andreas Lambertz gave the visitors the lead for the second time in the 71st minute, but Franck Ribery equalised three minutes later to set up the late victory.

The win extended Bayern's lead at the top to 20 minutes as Borussia Dortmund lost 2-1 at derby rivals Schalke.

Julian Draxler got the home team on their way to victory on 11 minutes with Klaas Jan Huntelaar doubling their advantage on 35. The defending champions tried to respond in the second half, but only had a Robert Lewandowski consolation goal to show for their efforts.

The win sent Schalke up to fourth, seven points behind their opponents and six below Bayer Leverkusen, who missed the chance to go second by losing 1-0 at Mainz. Andreas Ivanschitz netted the game's only goal from the penalty spot in the 61st minute to lift the hosts to sixth.

Wolfsburg eased their relegation worries with a thumping 5-2 win at Freiburg.

Max Kruse put Freiburg ahead in the second minute, but an own goal from Cedric Makiadi and fine strikes from Vieirinha and Ivica Olic turned the game on its head within 20 minutes.

Olic's second gave Dieter Hecking's side an even more comfortable lead after the break before Johannes Flum scored a second for the home team. Diego added a fifth Wolfsburg goal with the last kick of the game as they opened a nine-point cushion over the relegation zone.

Hoffenheim picked up a crucial victory in the fight against the drop with a 3-0 success at bottom club Greuther Furth. Roberto Firmino gave Hoffenheim the lead in the 10th minute, Joselu made it 2-0 after 16 minutes and Weis wrapped up the win five minutes into the second half.

The win moved second-bottom Hoffenheim two points off Augsburg in the relegation play-off spot, and five ahead of Furth.

In the late kick-off Borussia Monchengladbach and Werder Bremen drew 1-1.

Peniel Mlapa gave Monchengladbach the lead in the 72nd minute, but Aleksandar Ignjovski equalised for the visitors five minutes later.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
