Live Commentary

  • Stay tuned to for ratings and reactions.
  • And that's full time. Bayern Munich limp over the finish line to tighten their stranglehold on the Bundesliga. They now have a five point lead at the top of the table. Augsburg, for all their hard work and graft, leave empty handed.
  • 90' + 3'
    Red Card Anatoliy Tymoshchuk
    RED CARD!! Tymoshchuk receives his marching orders deep into stoppage time for a reckless, studs-up lunge on Daniel Baier. Referee Felix Zwayer wastes no time in producing the red card.

  • 81'
    Kaplani adds to the bad tempered nature of the game by shoving Badstuber off the ball, cue a harsh exchange of words between the duo.

    Reinhardt goes in hard on Ribery again, and although the referee gave no free-kick, the full-back kicks the ball out of play.

  • 75'
    Kroos sends a right-footed shot well over the bar when he should have done much better. Poor attempt.

    Ribery tries to touch Alaba's ball into Gomez's path, but Langkamp, who has had a very solid game for Augsburg, stops it from reaching the 26-year-old's feet.
  • 70'
    This game is getting feisty. Muller is scythed down by Hosogai challenge that goes largely unpunished, not even a booking.

    Goal Hajime Hosogai
    GOAL!!! Hajime Hosogai gets the hosts back into the game. Bayern Munich fail to clear Werner's corner, and after a game of pinball, Hosogai drives the ball over the line, despite Alaba's best efforts to keep the ball out of the goal.
  • 58'
    Werner moves inside and blasts a shot goalwards. It hits Badstuber and goes out for a corner.
  • 57'
    Alaba breaks from midfield and feeds Gomez, but the 26-year-old's touch is too heavy and gifts possession back to Augsburg. Not the first time Gomez's control has let him down.
  • 55'
    Muller whips in a fantastic cross, but it's just a bit too close to the 'keeper for Gomez. Ribery collects the ball on the far-side, but is unable to replicate his teammate's delivery.

  • 46'
    Bayern Munich have got the second half started. Will Bayern add to their two-goal lead?
  • The teams are back out and the second half is about to start.
  • And that's that. 2-0 at half-time and Bayern Munich have completely controlled the game. It would take a comeback of biblical proportions for Augsburg to get anything here today.
  • 44'
    An aimless long-ball from David Alaba rolls out for an Augsburg goal-kick. Wasteful play from the youngster.
  • 42'
    It's a shot for Augsburg. Davids goes down the left before leaving the ball for Werner who crosses the ball to the far post, but Molders' bicycle-kick goes well wide.
  • 41'
    Augsburg can't get the ball of Bayern Munich, who have strung a huge number of pass together.
  • 38'
    Gomez turns beautifully on the edge of the box and feeds Muller, but his pass back to Gomez is blocked away. Bayern Munich going for the perfect goal, it seems.
  • 37'
    Ribery goes on a trademark run into the middle from the flank, but his ball is blocked en route to the wide-open Muller.
  • 34'
    Great interplay from Muller and Gomez once more results in the 26-year-old sending in a cross-shot which fails to find Franck Ribery in the centre.

  • 28'

  • 27'
    Molders is flagged offside.

  • 21'
    Lorenzo Davids attempts to feed Molders, but his pass is lapped up by Van Buyten.
  • 21'
    Van Buten is there to head the free-kick away.
  • 20'
    Yellow Card Rafinha
    Augsburg have a free-kick in a threatening area. Werner dribbles down the left but is stopped in his tracks by Rafinha, who picks up a booking for the challenge.
  • 18'
    Bayern haven't been at their best so far, but all things told, they deserve to be in front.
  • 15'
    Goal M. Gómez
    GOAL!!! Mario Gomez gets another goal. Frank Ribery sung in a corner that Van Buyten flicked on at the near post, leaving Gomez with a simple finish from a matter of inches.
  • 14'
    More injury worries for Jupp Heynckes - Tymoshchuk is visibly in pain and is limping. Thankfully for Bayern Munich, Luiz Gustavo is on the bench and could step in if needed.
  • 11'
    Manuel Neuer charges out of his goal to head the ball away from Molders, who fouls the Germany 'keeper.

  • 8'
    Thomas Muller darts in from the right and sends a tame left-footed shot wide. Bayern are starting to click.
  • 7'
    Gomez has his first shot of the day. Muller and Ribery combine to feed the 26-year-old, who hooks the ball over the the bar.
  • 5'
    Badstuber is called into action to cut out a through ball to Tobias Werner. Bayern were cut apart there, but the Germany international did well to get across and cut out the danger.
  • 4'
    Ribery runs down the left flank for the first time today, but is soon bundled over by Reinhardt.
  • 2'
    David Alaba is filling the Schweinsteiger role today - a big test for the 19-year-old Austrian international.
  • 1'
    And the hosts have got the game underway...
  • We're just seconds away from the Bavarian derby. Will Bayern Munich extend their lead at the top? Or can Augsburg pull off one of the shocks of the season? All will be revealed over the next 90 minutes...
  • Meanwhile, Bayern Munich have Neuer; Rafinha, Van Buyten, Badstuber, Lahm; Tymoshchuk, Alaba; Muller, Kroos, Ribery; Gomez
  • The lineups are in. The hosts start with: Amsif; Reinhardt, Callsen-Bracker, Langhamp, Verhaegh; Hosogai, Davids; Werner, Brinkmann, Baier; Molders
  • This match is surely a foregone conclusion - Bayern Munich can extend their lead at the top of the table to five points with a victory, meanwhile Augsburg sit two points adrift at the foot of the table, but can Bastian Schweinsteiger's injury halt Jupp Heynckes' side's progress?
