Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Bayern extend their lead at the top of the table to three points. Furth, meanwhile, remain bottom of the Bundesliga. Lewandowski's Bundesliga scoring streak ends at 15 games, one short of Gerd Muller's record.
Bayern see out an impressive 3-1 victory with 10 men. The visitors started excellently: Davies' low cross found its way to Muller who squeezed in a precise shot from 10 yards. And they doubled their lead midway through the half, when Kimmich beat Burchert with a superb strike from 25 yards. Bayern wobbled slightly in the second period when Pavard was sent off for a professional foul, but they maintained their composure. Lewandowski forced Griesbeck into an unfortunate own goal to put the game beyond the hosts. But Furth didn't give up and got a deserved consolation goal when Itten headed past Neuer late on to ensure it finished 3-1.
90' + 3' FULL TIME: Greuther Furth 1-3 Bayern Munich
90' + 1' Three minutes of stoppage time are added on.
89' Furth suddenly have some confidence as Abiama runs in behind the Bayern defence, only to be called back for offside.
T. Tillman
Assist
87' Furth have been crying out for a cross like that all game. Tillman whipped in a dangerous delivery with pace, and it allowed Itten to ghost in between the centre-backs and head beyond Neuer.
C. Itten
Goal
87' ITTEN! 3-1! Greuther Furth pull one back. Tillman finds space down the right flank and whips in an inviting cross. Itten cleverly runs in between the centre-backs and heads the cross into the ground, across goal, and beyond Neuer from six yards!
J. Musiala
L. Goretzka
87' In Bayern's second change of the double substitution, Musiala comes on for Goretzka.
J. Stanišić
N. Süle
86' Two more changes for Bayern: the first sees Sule make way for Stanisic.
J. Leweling
J. Green
86' Green departs with Leweling taking his place on the wing.
84' Chance! Neuer gets caught outside his goal, presenting Itten with a promising chance from a tight angle! Itten opts to shoot early though, and his curled effort across goal is cleared away by Davies under little pressure.   
A. Barry
Yellow Card
83' Barry is booked after a foul on Gnabry to prevent a counter-attack.
82' Sule goes down following a fair challenge from Green. The defender has to take a break for treatment, but he's deemed okay to continue.
80' Green cuts inside from the left and hits a weak effort wide of the near post from 25 yards. 
79' Furth are still working hard to find a way back into this game, but nothing's working right now. Their latest move ends with Abiama unable to find Dudziak inside the box.
A. Barry
J. Willems
76' Willems walks off to be replaced by Barry in defence. 
T. Tillman
S. Griesbeck
76' Griesbeck is replaced in midfield by Tillman.
S. Gnabry
T. Müller
76' Muller makes way for Gnabry after an excellent performance that included the opening goal.
C. Itten
B. Hrgota
76' Hrgota makes way for Itten in attack.
75' Lewandowski almost gets clean through on goal, but Burchert rushes out to clear it just before Lewandowski arrives.  
74' Chance! Griesbeck gets free inside the box, but despite a free route to goal, his eventual shot is tame and Neuer's able to save comfortably.
72' Sule attempts a spectacular lob from 40 yards, but it's comfortable for Burchert who doesn't have to jump to gather it.
70' Furth have failed to improve since Bayern's red card, and the visitors punish them from a set-piece. That should rule out any chance of a comeback now.  
S. Griesbeck
Own Goal
68' OWN GOAL FOR GRIESBECK! 3-0! That should make the game safe for Bayern. Kimmich swings a dangerous free-kick into the six-yard box, where Lewandowski and Griesbeck are fighting for position. The delivery ricochets off Griesbeck and through the legs of Burchert before nestling in the bottom corner!
D. Abiama
Yellow Card
67' Abiama fouls Davies near the touchline and earns himself an immediate yellow card. 
D. Abiama
H. Nielsen
67' Nielsen is replaced by Abiama as Furth search for an injection of energy in attack.   
65' Furth have still only managed one shot in the second half and this was from a free-kick. They'll need to find a way to carry more threat in attack if they're to capitalise on their numerical advantage.   
63' Sabitzer can provide a little more defensive security off the ball compared to Sane. That substitution highlights Bayern's anxiety as they try and see out this win with 10 men.
M. Sabitzer
L. Sané
61' Sane makes way for Sabitzer as Bayern look to tighten up.
59' Chance! Sane finds Lewandowski inside the box with a low cross, but the striker can only steer it straight at Burchert from eight yards!
57' Kimmich searches for the run of Sane in behind the defence with a cross-field switch, but Mayerhofer just about smuggles it behind. The resulting set-piece amounts to nothing.
55' Sane's 25-yard strike is blocked away by Bauer.
N. Viergever
Yellow Card
53' Viergever is shown a yellow card after a late challenge on Goretzka.
52' The hosts suddenly have a glimmer of hope. They looked defeated heading into the break, but Pavard's red card will at least give them hope of a turnaround now.   
50' Hrgota bends the free-kick up and over the wall from 25 yards but it's a simple save for Neuer.
B. Pavard
Red Card
48' Red card for Bayern! Pavard is shown a straight red. Furth rip through Bayern with a series of rapid interchanges that send Dudziak through on goal. Pavard attempts to poke the ball away with a slide challenge but only brings down the Furth man, and after careful hesitation, the referee sends him off.
47' It's going to take a dramatic change in fortunes for Furth's attack to click into gear and save the game. Furth have only scored three goals this season, with two of them coming from the penalty spot. Only Augsburg have scored fewer goals than Furth this season. No team have scored fewer goals from open play than Furth.
46' Greuther Furth get the second half under way.   
Furth will need to summon something special in the second half if they're to climb off the bottom of the table tonight.
Muller and Kimmich give Bayern a commanding lead at half time. The visitors have been in total control of this game and they have the lead they deserve. Bayern broke the deadlock quickly: Davies’ cross found its way to Muller who finished from 10 yards with unerring accuracy. Furth fought hard to fend the visitors off, but their resistance crumbled again when Kimmich fired in an excellent strike from 25 yards. The hosts almost pulled one back just before the interval, but Hrgota couldn’t quite meet Dudziak’s cross and the scoreline stayed at 2-0 going into half time.
45' + 2' HALF TIME: Greuther Furth 0-2 Bayern
45' + 1' Close! Dudziak's corner is flicked on at the near post and sails agonisingly past the lunging Hrgota who was poised for a tap-in!
45' One minute of stoppage time is added on.
L. Sané
Yellow Card
44' Sane mistimes his shot and accidentally kicks Mayerhofer. The referee shows him a yellow card as a result.  
43' Bayern are pushing hard for that third goal, which would surely end this game as a contest before the break!
41' Off the bar! Lewandowski gets to Kimmich's corner first and attempts a deft volley across goal. Despite beating Burchert, his effort flicks off the bar and behind for a goal kick!  
39' Almost a third! Davies gets to the byline and knocks in a low cross that beats Burchert. However, Willems remains alert and is on hand at the back post to clear it behind. Furth struggle to clear the resulting set-piece and it ends with Mayerhofer conceding another corner to prevent a Muller tap-in.
37' It's been an excellent half for Bayern and they gather their breath with a long spell of possession in their own half.
35' Goretzka wastefully chips a cross behind for a goal kick.
33' Bayern have profited heavily from long-distance efforts today. They've taken four shots from outside the box, including their second goal!
L. Sané
Assist
31' It was a neat pass from Sane to enable Kimmich's shot, but that goal was all about the strike. Kimmich beat Burchert from difference with superb accuracy! 
J. Kimmich
Goal
31' KIMMICH! 2-0! Bayern double their lead. An intricate passing sequence around the box ends with Sane laying it off to Kimmich 25 yards out. Kimmich curls a low, first-time effort that beats Burchert before nestling precisely in the far corner! 
29' Close! Goretzka's 25-yard strike flashes narrowly wide of Burchert's right-hand post!
27' Upamecano handles Dudziak's cross, presenting Furth with a promising free-kick. They opt to work it short, allowing Green to fire a low effort from 20 yards, but it doesn't trouble Neuer.
25' Furth force a succession of corners. The second set-piece has Neuer under pressure at the near post, but Sule rises to clear.
23' Bayern are in total control. They're moving the ball around fluently to consistently test the Furth defence. The hosts are struggling to create any shooting opportunities.  
21' Chance! Muller works a neat interchange with Lewandowski on the edge of the box, before rifling a low shot across goal and narrowly wide. 
B. Hrgota
Yellow Card
20' Hrgota is shown a yellow card after bringing Davies down near the touchline.
19' Kimmich chips in a cross looking for Davies at the back post, but Mayerhofer is there to head clear.
17' Davies finds space again on the left wing and drills in another dangerous low cross that Bauer fearfully hacks clear.  
15' Hrgota lets fly from 30 yards but Sule charges down the shot.
12' Well, Bayern have got the start they expected. They've controlled the game so far, and they've capitalised on this by converting their first clear chance.
T. Müller
Goal
10' MULLER! 1-0! Bayern take an early lead. Davies races away down the wing, before cutting it back across goal. The cross flicks off Bauer and perfectly into the path of Muller who side-foots a precise low finish off the post and in from 10 yards!
9' Willems swings in a deep cross that forces Sane into conceding a corner. Furth work the corner short, but the eventual cross is cleared by Goretzka.  
8' Sane skips past Griesbeck and plays an ambitious throughball in search of Lewandowski. It's a little too powerful for the striker though and it rolls through to Burchert. 
6' Close! Viergever blocks Lewandowski's shot, but it falls to Goretzka on the edge of the box. Goretzka proceeds to drive a first-time effort narrowly wide of Burchert's right-hand post. 
4' Sane dances into the area and rides a number of challenges before Bauer gets across to halt his run with a firm tackle.  
2' Bayern start with intent: an intricate move ends with Viergever heading away Pavard's dangerous cross at the near post.   
1' Bayern get the first half under way.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
History doesn’t look good for Greuther Furth today. Bayern have lost only one of their last 48 Bundesliga matches against newly promoted teams (W44 D3). Bayern have scored in each of these matches at an average of 3.2 goals per match (155 goals in total).
Bayern, meanwhile, make two changes: Stanisic is replaced by Pavard at right-back, while Gnabry drops out with Upamecano coming in. This reshuffle at the back means that Davies may well line up on the wing.
Greuther Furth make one change following a 2-1 defeat to Hertha Berlin. Itten drops out with Green coming in.
