Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.
Bayern are next in action against Borussia Monchengladbach on the road in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. Hoffenheim are also in cup action at home to Holsten Kiel on Tuesday.
Bayern continue their outstanding form since the international break with a 4-0 hammering of Hoffenheim in their Bundesliga clash at Allianz Arena. Serge Gnabry put the home side ahead with a crisp finish before Robert Lewandowski curled home a stunner into the top-right corner. The hosts had to wait until the 82nd minute to kill off the game when Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting found the net from close range. Kingsley Coman then added a fourth to put the icing on the cake.

1' We're under way at Allianz Arena.
Hoffenheim have lost 17 Bundesliga games against Bayern, more than against any other team. On average, Hoffenheim averages fewer points (0.65), has a lower win rate (15%), a higher losing rate (65%) and concedes on average more goals (2.38) against Bayern than against any other opponent.
Hoffenheim have made two changes to their side that beat Cologne last time out. Christoph Baumgartner and Pavel Kaderabek are ruled out of the contest and are replaced by Richards and Brunn Larsen in the starting line-up.
Bayern have made three changes to their side from their win over Benfica during the week. Sane and Coman are rotated out of the line-up, despite their excellent displays in Portugal. Gnabry and Musiala start in the final third in their place. Richards also gets the call to start in place of Sule, who drops to the bench. Hernandez shifts inside to play alongside Upamecano.
HOFFENHEIM SUBS: Munnas Dubbur, Philipp Pentke, Angelo Stiller, Sebastian Rudy, Mijat Gacinovic, Kevin Vogt, Sargis Adamyan, Robert Skov, Georginio Rutter.
HOFFENHEIM (3-4-3): Oliver Baumann; Stefan Posch, Florian Grillitsch, Chris Richards; Kevin Akpoguma, Diadie Samassekou, Dennis Geiger, David Raum; Ihlas Bebou, Jacob Bruun Larsen, Andrej Kramaric.
BAYERN SUBS: Niklas Sule, Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bouna Sarr, Tanguy Kouassi, Corentin Tolisso, Christian Fruchtl, Josip Stanisic.
BAYERN (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, Omar Richards; Joshua Kimmich, Marcel Sabitzer; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Jamal Musiala; Robert Lewandowski.
Hoffenheim also enter the match with confidence having beaten Cologne in their last outing 5-0. Sebastian Hoeness' men were beaten 3-1 by Stuttgart before the international break, but his team responded with a strong performance to lift them into mid-table. Hoffenheim have been solid enough this term, but will have to raise the level of their game against the champions.
Bayern have issued the perfect response to their setback against Eintracht Frankfurt three weeks ago by producing dominant victories in their last two outings. Julian Nagelsmann's side crushed Bayer Leverkusen on the road 5-1 in the Bundesliga before following up their display with a 4-0 hammering of Benfica away in the Champions League. They are in top form in front of goal heading into the contest against one of their manager's former sides.
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Hoffeheim at Allianz Arena.
