Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means Bayern go seven points clear at the top of the league as they close in on another title, while Wolfsburg remain in third.   
Bayern claim an important 3-2 victory over Wolfsburg through Musiala's brace. The visitors did the damage in the first half: they took the lead early on when Musiala squeezed a low shot beyond Casteels. And they made it two on 24 minutes when Choupo-Moting capitalised on a mistake from Casteels to tap into an empty net. Although Wolfsburg pulled one back through Weghorst's neat finish, Bayern re-established their two-goal lead just before the break when Musiala headed in. The hosts made it nervy in the second period when Philipp steered in Otavio's cross, but Bayern defended stoically to hold onto a crucial three points.

Goal

Wolfsburg will need to completely tighten up at the back if they're to attempt a stunning comeback in the second half.  
Bayern take a comfortable 3-1 lead into the break after a brace from Musiala. The visitors took the lead early on when Musiala's shot squirmed past Casteels and they never looked back. Casteels spilled Alaba's cross enabling Choupo-Moting to score a simple tap-in, and although Weghorst cut the lead in half with a neat finish, Bayern quickly restored their two-goal advantage. Musiala rose highest to steer a brilliant header across Casteels and in, following a precise cross from Muller, to make it 3-1 at half-time.

45' + 2' Brooks heads Philipp's corner high and wide.

43' Baku draws a foul from Boateng to win the hosts a promising free-kick. But Philipp's delivery sails over the heads and behind.    
41' Musiala's second goal will really frustrate Wolfsburg. They worked hard to drag a goal back and prepare a route to recovery in this game, but as soon as they made a breakthrough Bayern punished them immediately.    
39' Muller has now provided an assist in each of Bayern's last five Bundesliga matches!
J. Musiala
Goal

T. Müller
Assist
37' Muller may have cost Bayern for the Wolfsburg goal, but he makes up for it by sending in an inch-perfect cross for Musiala to head into the top corner from eight yards!
X. Schlager
Assist
35' Schlager intercepted Muller's poor pass and then had the poise to pick out Weghorst, who finished the attack with a delightful effort!
W. Weghorst
Goal
35' WEGHORST! 2-1! Wolfsburg pull one back as Schlager wins possession deep inside the Bayern half, before feeding it through to Weghorst, who curls a precise, low shot into the far corner from 12 yards!  
34' Huge chance for Sane! Bayern break rapidly as Muller races into the box, before cutting it back to Sane, who plants a side-footed shot wide of the far post from 12 yards!  
32' Close! Sane almost makes it three, as he hits a first-time shot from 20 yards inches over the bar following a neat pass from Muller. 
30' Sane goes down under a challenge from Brooks inside the box, but the referee and VAR remain unmoved. 
28' That was Choupo-Moting's sixth career goal against Wolfsburg!  
26' It's a poor mistake from Casteels, who's gifted a goal to Bayern there - and with the visitors leading 2-0 after just 25 minutes, Wolfsburg will be aiming to limit the damage right now.  
E. Choupo-Moting
Goal
24' CHOUPO-MOTING! 2-0! Alaba gets to the byline and stands up a straightforward cross for Casteels to gather. However, the goalkeeper makes a terrible error and spills it, allowing Choupo-Moting to pounce and tap it into an empty net from close range!
23' Mbabu's deep cross is headed away comfortably by Pavard.  
21' Kimmich's crossfield pass is cut out by Otavio, forcing the visitors back momentarily.
19' Victor's low cross is hacked to safety by Boateng.
17' Well, this is ominous for Wolfsburg. They'd have been aiming to frustrate Bayern early on and stay in the game, but Musiala's early goal has squashed that plan.  
J. Musiala
Goal
15' MUSIALA! 1-0! Mbabu's firm challenge on Davies inside the box falls to Musiala, and the attacker wriggles past Lacroix before firing a low effort from eight yards towards the near post that squirms past Casteels and in!  
A. Davies
Assist
15' Davies made an enterprising run into the box by jinking past Baku, but when Mbabu challenged him the ball fell perfectly for Musiala to shimmy into space and plant a neat shot beyond Casteels!
13' Wolfsburg have a notably poor record against Bayern and they'll see today as an opportunity to turn it around. They're without a win in 11 Bundesliga games against Bayern, picking up just a solitary point (D1, L10) – they’ve only endured a longer winless run in the top flight against Bayern between 1997 and 2003 (12 games).
11' Davies' diagonal pass over the top of the defence is too powerful for Musiala and Casteels strolls out to claim it.  
9' Mbabu heads high and wide after meeting Philipp's corner.
8' Big save from Neuer! Philipp and Baku work a smart interchange on the edge of the box, allowing the latter to race through on goal! However, Baku has to take his eight-yard shot from an angle, and it lacks power, allowing Neuer to push it around the post!  
6' Choupo-Moting charges into the box before rifling a powerful effort straight at Casteels from 18 yards.
4' Bayern settle into the game with a long spell of possession inside their own half.  
2' Schlager immediately drills a 25-yard effort that flicks off Weghorst before drifting well wide.
1' Wolfsburg get the first half under way.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Despite their Champions League exit, the visitors will be a daunting prospect for Wolfsburg. Bayern dropped points for the first time since February last time out against Union Berlin (1-1). The league leaders have 65 points from 28 games – their best tally since 2017/18 (69).
Bayern make just one change to the team that were knocked out of the Champions League by PSG during the week: Coman is replaced in attack by Musiala.
Wolfsburg make three changes to the side that lost 4-3 to Eintracht Frankfurt last time out: Roussillon, Maximilian Arnold and Brekalo drop out for Otavio, Philipp and Victor.
