Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Augsburg climb up to 15th - but more importantly, they'll be hoping that this impressive result can kickstart their season. Bayern remain top, but if Dortmund win tomorrow the gap at the top will be cut to just one point.
Augsburg hold on to secure a precious win over Bayern. The hosts were under serious pressure heading into this match, after a poor start to the season had left them in 16th. But they started bravely and found themselves enjoying a shock lead when Pedersen drilled in a fierce strike from eight yards. And it got even better for Augsburg when a rapid counter-attack ended with Hahn steering in Iago's cross. Bayern struck back immediately though through Lewandowski to set up a tense second-half. The visitors threw everything at Augsburg, with Lewandowski and Davies missing huge chances to equalise. But Augsburg defended brilliantly and managed to just about hold onto a hugely important 2-1 win.
90' + 5' FULL TIME: Augsburg 2-1 Bayern Munich
90' + 3' Bayern knock cross after cross into the box without reward. Eventually, it drops back to Neuer on the halfway-line, only for the goalkeeper to slice it out of play.
90' + 1' Four minutes of stoppage time are added on as Augsburg desperately attempt to cling onto a precious three points.
89' Another Bayern move grinds to a halt as Kouassi hammers a cross wastefully out of play.

86' Bayern are finally creating clear chances, but they just can't apply the finishing touch! Still, the pressure is building on Augsburg.
84' CHANCE! Musiala creates a little space to shoot from 12 yards and bends a strike that Gikiewicz pushes into danger! It falls to Muller, but he can only prod an awkward effort wide from five yards!

A. Hahn
Augsburg
82' Hahn also departs with Jensen taking his spot.
S. Córdova
A. Zeqiri
Augsburg
82' Zeqiri heads off with Cordova taking his place.
80' HUGE CHANCE! Bayern sweep forward as Muller picks out an unmarked Lewandowski with a crisp pass into the box. The striker swivels and fires from 12 yards only for Gikiewicz to block it away! The rebound falls to Davies who cushions an effort narrowly over the open net from 12 yards! That was the chance the visitors were waiting for.
R. Framberger
Yellow Card
Augsburg
79' Framberger's shown a yellow card for timewasting.
78' Bayern are running out of time. Despite their total dominance, they're still struggling to find clear shooting opportunities and it looks like it might require a moment of inspiration for them to draw level.
76' Choupo-Moting slips inside from the right before chipping an inviting cross towards Lewandowski, only for Oxford to knock it behind. Hernandez flicks on the resulting corner at the near post, but Augsburg smuggle it clear and survive a dangerous situation.
C. Gruezo
M. Pedersen
Augsburg
74' Two more changes for Augsburg. The goalscorer Pedersen heads off to be replaced by Gruezo.
J. Morávek
N. Dorsch
Augsburg
74' Dorsch also heads off with Moravek taking his place.
73' CLOSE! Davies darts inside from the left and rides a challenge from Maier on his way into the box. Eventually, he fires a crisp, 18-yard strike that flashes across goal and inches wide of the far post!
71' Chance! Davies battles with Gumny to get to a throughball ahead of Gikiewicz, but the defender just about sees off the danger by lunging in and poking the ball behind!
E. Choupo-Moting
L. Sané
Bayern München
69' Bayern make another substitution as they continue to hunt for an equaliser. This time, Sane makes way for Choupo-Moting.
68' Augsburg have shown impressive organisation in this game. They've had to deal with plenty of Bayern pressure but have surrendered only a few clear chances.
66' An intricate Bayern move culminates with Musiala turning and blasting over from 20 yards.
64' Goretzka picks out Davies near the byline, but a promising move is halted after an offside call against the wingback.
62' Bayern have had 80 per cent of possession so far in the second-half and they've been in total control. Nevertheless, they've still only produced two shots from this dominance.
60' The hosts are sitting deep inside their own half following the break. They're struggling to escape as Bayern continue to probe and it feels like an equaliser will arrive sooner rather than later.
R. Framberger
D. Caligiuri
Augsburg
58' Caligiuri is replaced by Framberger as Augsburg make their first change.
56' Oxford lunges to concede a corner and prevent Sane from dribbling from the byline. The hosts struggle to deal with a number of corners until Gikiewicz plucks Hernandez's header away from harm.
54' Chance! Augsburg struggle to clear a succession of corners until Goretzka collects a pass from Davies before lashing a 12-yard strike over the bar.
J. Musiala
M. Sabitzer
Bayern München
52' Sabitzer also makes way for Musiala, after a difficult outing.
A. Davies
O. Richards
Bayern München
52' Bayern quickly make a double substitution to try and turn this one around. The first change sees Richards depart for Davies.
50' CHANCE! Pavard whips in a cross from deep and it ricochets off Gumny, before falling perfectly for Lewandowski! However, the striker lashes his five-yard strike well over the bar! That really should have found the net and Gumny sheepishly apologises to his goalkeeper.
48' Sane swings in a dangerous cross towards an unmarked Gnabry but it narrowly misses the attacker before drifting away for a throw-in.
46' Bayern kick off the second 45.
Bayern weren't at their fluent best in that half, and could be missing Kimmich. His replacement, Sabitzer, made a costly mistake for the second goal and the visitors have just looked a little disjointed so far.
Augsburg take a shock 2-1 lead into the interval. The hosts entered this one near the bottom of the table and in bad form - the most likely result seemed a comfortable win for Bayern. But they produced an excellent first-half. After restricting Bayern's dangerous forwards early on, they took the lead when Pedersen drilled in from eight yards. And they followed up a surprising opener, with an equally surprising second goal. On this occasion, Hahn rose highest to plant a header in following Iago's cross. But Bayern showed resolved and cut the deficit in half just before the break when Lewandowski fired in from close range.
45' + 2' HALF TIME: Augsburg 2-1 Bayern Munich
45' + 1' Pedersen latches onto Zeqiri's cut-back, but his low shot deflects behind.
L. Hernández
Yellow Card
Bayern München
45' + 1' Hernandez is also shown a yellow card after clashing with Hahn.
A. Hahn
Yellow Card
Augsburg
45' Hahn and Hernandez clash off the ball, prompting pushes from both teams. Hahn is booked for his role in that.
42' Lewandowski has now scored 11 goals away from home against Augsburg. The only player to score that many goals away from home at a team in Bundesliga history was Gerd Muller at Schalke (11).
40' That's a huge response from Bayern. It would have been difficult to come back from a two-goal deficit at half-time, but now they have hope before the break.
T. Müller
Assist
Bayern München
38' Muller's been finding space all game, and he finally punishes Augsburg. On this occasion, he managed to latch onto Pavard's cross and flick it through to Lewandowski, who made no mistake from close range!
R. Lewandowski
Goal
Bayern München
38' GOAL! And Lewandowski halves the deficit immediately! 2-1. Muller flicks on Pavard's awkward cross, and it drifts through to Lewandowski at the back post, where the striker fires a low volley into the bottom corner from close range!
37' What a half it's been for Augsburg! After struggling for goals all season, they have two inside the first half against Bayern.
Iago
Assist
Augsburg
35' It was a brilliant run and cross for Iago. He drove towards the edge of the box, before whipping in a pacey delivery that was just waiting for a finish!
A. Hahn
Goal
Augsburg
35' GOALLL! Hahn doubles Augsburg's lead! 2-0. Zeqiri snatches possession away from Sabitzer, before rolling it out towards Iago to kickstart a counter-attack. Iago races towards the box and whips in an inviting delivery, allowing Hahn to climb above Hernandez to guide a header across goal and past Neuer!
34' The visitors will be confident that they have the firepower to turn this game around. Bayern have scored 40 goals in this season's Bundesliga, more than any other team in the first 11 games of a season in the history of the competition. Nevertheless, they've still only produced five shots so far.
34' Sabitzer hammers a vicious effort from 20 yards, only for Oxford to block it away. That would have been dangerous had it not been for Oxford's intervention.
32' Sane slaloms in from the left before picking out Gnabry, who drives in a fierce effort from a tight angle that deflects behind. The resulting corner is cleared out to Pavard who fires a harmless 30-yard volley straight at Gikiewicz.
31' Chance! Bayern slice through the hosts, as Muller picks out Richards inside the box. The wingback jinks inside past Gumny before lashing a fierce effort that Gouweleeuw bravely charges down.
29' Bayern attempt to regain their composure with a long spell of possession inside their own half.
27' Gnabry's deep free-kick is headed clear comfortably by Gouweleeuw.
25' Well, that's a huge goal for the hosts! They desperately needed to start well today to have any hope of a result, and they've done just that. Head coach, Markus Weinzierl, was punching the air with delight, knowing what an important goal that could be.
M. Pedersen
Goal
Augsburg
23' PEDERSEN! 1-0 AUGSBURG! The hosts take a shock lead. Iago gallops down the left, before whipping in a low cross towards the near post. Zeqiri gets there first and flicks it back towards Pedersen who rushes in to drill a fierce strike into the bottom corner from eight yards!
22' Augsburg make a rare foray forward as Zeqiri hammers in a low, dangerous cross that Hernandez knocks behind. The resulting set-piece amounts to nothing.
20' Nervy moment for Gikiewicz! Dorsch's backpass is difficult for Gikiewicz and it rolls underneath the goalkeeper's foot before sliding narrowly wide! The resulting corner falls to Lewandowski inside the six-yard box, but he can only divert his effort way over the bar.
18' Gouweleeuw's wild 40-yard volley trickles harmlessly wide of the target.
16' Gnabry's deep free-kick is too close to the goalkeeper, and Gikiewicz sails out to claim it.
14' Sane and Gnabry link up down the right flank, but Gnabry's eventual cross is flicked clear by Oxford.
12' Bayern are dominating possession now as they assertively knock it around inside the Augsburg half.
10' Muller gets to the byline but loses his footing at the crucial moment, and it runs out of play. Bayern are just beginning to control this game, though.
8' Chance! Augsburg fail to clear a cross, allowing Sane to nod a header down for Richards. The wingback swivels, before blazing a volley high and wide from just eight yards out.
7' Richards gets to the byline and drills in a dangerous low cross that Gouweleeuw slices nervously behind. Sane works the resulting corner short to Gnabry, but the attacker is quickly dispossessed.
5' Hahn barges into Hernandez after the ball has gone, conceding a free-kick. Augsburg have started with an aggressive intensity and they're pressing the visitors high up the pitch.
3' Augsburg win a throw-in deep inside the Bayern half. They work it to Gumny, whose deep cross is nudged clear by Upamecano.
1' Augsburg get the first half underway.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Augsburg desperately need to find some form, but Bayern represent the most difficult opposition to kickstart your season against. With just nine points from 11 games, Augsburg have made their worst start to a Bundesliga season since 2015-16 (six points), finishing 12th that campaign.
Bayern, meanwhile, make four changes to the side that defeated Freiburg. The main news is that Joshua Kimmich misses out through quarantine, with Sabitzer replacing him in midfield. Meanwhile, Sule, Coman and Davies make way for Pavard, Gnabry and Richards.
Augsburg make three changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Wolfsburg prior to the international break. Strobl, Vargas and Finnbogason make way for Iago, Hahn and Dorsch.
