A recap of today's action before we leave you.

In Spain, Barcelona go five points clear of Real Madrid with a 2-0 win over city rivals Espanyol.

In France, Paris St-Germain thrashed Lille 6-1 to go three points above Lyon at the top.

And in Germany, Bayern Munich edged Hertha Berlin 1-0 to move closer to the title. They will be champions for a third successive year if Wolfsburg do not beat Borussia Monchengladbach tomorrow.

Next up for Pep Guardiola's treble chasers is Tuesday's German Cup semi-final with Borussia Dortmund.

Story of the game

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

Story of the game
.

The stats would imply it was easy for Bayern Munich. Almost 80% possession and twice as many shots - but Hertha Berlin really pushed them all the way.

FULL-TIME

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

They were made to work but Bayern Munich beat Hertha Berlin to move to the verge of the Bundesliga title.

INJURY TIME

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

There'll be two extra minutes.

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

Just as my computer crashes, Jerome Boateng plays Robert Lewandowski in but the striker's shot is straight at keeper Sascha Burchert.

Then the keeper denies Bastian Schweinsteiger after some fantastic individual play to burst into the box and jink past a couple of Hertha defenders.

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin's Genki Haraguchi is played through, in acres of space, similar to Nico Schulz's big chance earlier. However the Japanese player is offside.

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin

As things stand... Bayern Munich can only miss out on the title if they lose every single game, Wolfsburg win all of their matches and overturn a goal difference of over 30.

Easy job then.

If Wolfsburg don't beat Borussia Monchengladbach tomorrow, then Bayern will officially be champions (again).

GOAL

Bayern Munich 1-0 Hertha Berlin - Bastian Schweinsteiger

Before I could even see a replay of that last chance to tell you more about it, Bastian Schweinsteiger lashes Bayern into the lead. It's great play by Mitchell Weiser down the right wing as he takes on four or five Hertha defenders and pulls it across to the midfield maestro to fire home from 16 yards out.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger hits the post.

Bayern Munich have maybe their first big chance of the game. Thiago's corner is met by the head of Robert Lewandowski but keeper Sascha Burchert - making his first Bundesliga start in five years - palms it around the post.

SUBSTITUTION

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

As if to prove my point, 36-year-old former Chelsea striker Claudio Pizarro comes on for Mario Gotze, the man who scored the winner in the World Cup final this summer.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

A cynic would say Bayern Munich are saving themselves for Tuesday's German Cup semi-final with Borussia Dortmund.

SUBSTITUTION

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin bring on midfielder Jens Hegeler for Valentin Stocker. Seventeen minutes left.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich are starting to get on top now and Jerome Boateng forces a save from distance.

SUBSTITUTION

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

A change for both teams - Salomon Kalou comes off for Marcel Ndjeng.

And Bayern replace Thomas Muller with Thiago.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bastian Schweinsteiger plays the ball forward to Robert Lewandowski but the Pole, one of only two non-Germans in the Bayern team, can't control it and Hertha are able to clear.

Philipp Lahm gets in a cross which the striker is unable to get his head onto. A bit better from the champions.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich midfielder Mitchell Weiser is in a bit of trouble at the back, he is facing the byeline and under pressure. But luckily for him he has Manuel Neuer as an option.

The goalkeeper, who is so comfortable on the ball, just receives it, plays it out and Bayern move forward. Is there anybody who wouldn't like to see Neuer play a game outfield to see how he got on?

Nico Schulz

Oh that was the chance for Hertha Berlin. Nico Schulz is played in, he almost has the Bayern Munich half to himself - he charges in on goal but Manuel Neuer stands tall to keep out his effort.

That would have been the chance Schulz was dreaming of last night, the defence were nowhere.

Not sure if Bayern Munich are lacking motivation. They can wrap up the title this weekend - but they know realistically they'll win the league even if they lose every game.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich midfielder Mitchell Weiser puts in a cross, only he gets it wrong and it's heading towards goal. Is it going to dip in under the crossbar? No it lands into keeper Sascha Burchert's hands.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich's Sebastian Rode tries to find Mario Gotze with a ball over the top but the Germany World Cup hero is offside.

KICK-OFF

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern bring on Sinan Kurt for fellow 18-year-old Gianluca Gaudino at half-time. It's Kurt's senior debut.

Second half is under way.

Almost ready to go now for the second half. As things stand a Wolfsburg defeat tomorrow will hand Bayern the title.

All of today's other Bundesliga matches are finished. Hamburg moved up to the relegation play-off spot with a 3-2 win over Augsburg. Stuttgart are now in the bottom two after drawing with Freiburg. Borussia Dortmund are up to eighth.

Half-time. Boring game.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

I watched Bayern Munich thrashing Porto 6-1 during the week to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals.

You wouldn't even guess this was the same side really.

Hertha Berlin keeper Sascha Burchert is making his first Bundesliga start since October 2011 today. His side lost 3-0 to Nuremberg that day.

The 25-year-old hasn't had too much to do. Yet.

By the way stats fans.

There are nine Germans in Bayern Munich's starting line-up. The last time that happened was in 1999.

FULL-TIME

Paris St-Germain 6-1 Lille

Paris St-Germain go three points clear of Lyon at the top of Ligue 1 with a dominant victory over Lille.

Ezequiel Lavezzi scored a hat-trick and Edinson Cavani scored twice after Maxwell's opener. The champions lost keeper Salvatore Sirigu and right-back Serge Aurier to injury in the first half.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berlin forward Salomon Kalou shows a bit of pace and then takes a poor shot - not sure that's the first time that's ever happened.

The speedy Ivorian, once of Chelsea, cuts insider Sebastian Rode from the left but his effort is too high.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern Munich's first shot on target is by 18-year-old Gianluca Gaudino. The young German is looking for his first senior goal but it's straight at Sascha Burchert.

Moments later, the keeper has to dive to deny Thomas Muller's low shot.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Sebastian Rode

Bayern Munich are playing midfielder Sebastian Rode at right-back today (the anti-Philipp Lahm). The 24-year-old gets forward well and crosses into Thomas Muller, whose header lands wide of the post.

That is Bayern's first chance.

Before the game, Germany's former luge Olympic and world champion Georg Hackl met Bayern's mascot, Berni the bear. That's the most entertaining thing to have happened so far.

Valentin Stocker

Hertha Berlin have the first chance of the game but Valentin Stocker puts a cross wide at the far post. It had perhaps just gone beyond him when he got his shot in.

GOAL

Paris St-Germain 6-1 Lille - Ezequiel Lavezzi (77 mins)

Who needs Zlatan Ibrahimovic? The limelight is on other players with the Swede suspended and Ezequiel Lavezzi completes his hat-trick.

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Not much to report from the Allianz Arena. Bayern Munich have had 80% of the possession but nobody has had a shot yet.

Javi Martinez

Bayern Munich have Spain defender-midfielder Javi Martinez on the bench today. He hasn't played since the season-opening German Supercup following a bad knee injury.

GOAL (AND RED CARD)

Paris St-Germain 5-1 Lille - Edinson Cavani (73 mins pen)

Sebastien Corchia fouls Ezequiel Lavezzi in the box. It's a penalty. And a red card...

Edinson Cavani steps up. And that's 5-1. See ya round Lille.

KICK-OFF

Bayern Munich 0-0 Hertha Berlin

Bayern get us going.
