Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has scored nine goals in 30 appearances for Bayern Munich in all competitions this season

Bayern Munich need one win from their remaining four league games to claim a ninth successive Bundesliga title after a comfortable victory against Bayer Leverkusen.

Former Stoke forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting opened the scoring when he volleyed home after Thomas Muller's shot rebounded into his path.

Midfielder Joshua Kimmich made it 2-0 when he drove into the bottom corner.

Bayern are now 10 points clear of RB Leipzig, who lost 2-1 at Cologne.

Choupo-Moting has now scored in three successive games for the second time in his career, having previously done so in March 2014 when he was at Mainz.

Bayern can win the league at Mainz on Saturday (14:30 BST) and win coach Hansi Flick his seventh trophy at the club before he leaves at the end of the season.
