Coutinho decides to go alone when he should have picked out Müller, who gives him a deathly stare. It matters little though, Bayern are easy winners today.
Kimmich collects his customary booking.
Perisic has been bright since coming on. He twists and turns in the Dortmund box but can't quite get a shot away.
Perisic goes for goal with what would have been a stunning volley. He catches it sweetly, but it goes wide of the far post.
Martinez has been excellent in defence for Bayern today. He cuts out a pass by Reus that was heading for Alcacer.
This win will take Bayern up to third place in the Bundesliga, level on points with second placed RB Leipzig, who won 4-2 at Hertha Berlin earlier today. Borussia Mönchengladbach remain top though, and can extend their lead to four points with victory over Werder Bremen on Sunday.
Guerreiro inexplicably passes the ball straight out of play. What is going on with Dortmund?
It's been men against boys out there. Borussia Dortmund are heading for another heavy defeat at the Allianz Arena. In the past four seasons they've lost 5-0 (18/19), 6-0 (17/18), 4-1 (16/17) and 5-1 (15/16). Not a happy hunting ground.
GOAL! Bayern Munich 4-0 Borussia Dortmund - It's an own goal by Mats Hummels against his former club. Perisic's cross is aimed for Thiago at the near post, but Hummels diverts it into his own net as he tries to cut out the cross.
Almost a fourth for Bayern as Pavard races clear down the right and picks out Perisic at the back post, but the Croatian puts it wide.
After a tedious VAR check that needlessly holds up play, we're back underway.
GOAL! Bayern Munich 3-0 Borussia Dortmund - It's another for Bayern and another for Lewandowski! The Pole's flick-on reaches Müller, who lifts the ball back to Lewandowski, who caressed it into the bottom corner. Easy as you like, and Bayern are cruising to victory.
Bayern sub: Perisic on, Coman off.
Lucien Favre is stomping his feet around in the technical area, but his team have been outdone in every department today. Dortmund's best play has come since going 2-0 down, and since Reus and Alcacer came on.
Coman goes close! If there's anyone out there who deserves a goal, it's Kingsley Coman. The Frenchman cuts in from the left, a la Franck Ribery, but drills his shot centimeters over.
Brilliant trickery again by Coman. This time he digs out a cross but the ball somehow evades Müller, who was trying to glance his header in.
Bayern sub: Thiago on, Goretzka off.
Bayern have just taken their foot off the pedal in the past few minutes.
So close to a Dortmund goal! A cross from the right is deflected slightly by Martinez, which does just enough to take the sting out of the cross and put Alcacer off his stride. The Spaniard can't adjust his feet in time, and puts the ball wide from a meter out. That was agonisingly close for Dortmund.
Coman picks up a silly yellow for booting the ball into the crowd. That was quite silly.
A risky ball by Neuer lets Dortmund in, but Javi Martinez steps in to make a crucial interception.
If Dortmund score the next goal we could be in for an interesting finish (but they probably won't).
Double change for Dortmund: Reus and Alcacer on, Götze and Weigl off. The big guns are on for Dortmund and it's an attacking change, but that could just open them up to further punishment...
Lewandowski misses a sitter! Yes, you read that correctly. An easy chance by his standards is put wide, when you expected him to the stroke the ball in for 3-0.
Dortmund quite simply second best in every department. This still has the potential to get really ugly for them, as it so often does in this fixture.
Marco Reus is warming up for Dortmund, but it's surely too little too late for the Black and Yellows now.
Coman has been superb and his cross reaches Gnabry, but the outstretched forward puts it narrowly wide. So close to a third, which would have cued party time in Munich.
Anyway, the correct decision was probably reached and Bayern have a 2-0 lead, which is probably unassailable given how they're playing, and how impotent Dortmund have been.
VAR creates some very strange scenarios and that was another, with Bayern believing that the goal had been ruled out, only for anticlimactic celebration when the goal went in.
GOAL! Bayern Munich 2-0 Borussia Dortmund - Gnabry levels for Bayern as VAR rears its ugly head again. Gnabry's strike is initially chalked off after Lewandowski was deemed to be in an offside position, but they've checked it and he was level.
We're back underway in Munich.
HT - Bayern Munich 1-0 Borussia Dortmund. Robert Lewandowski's 22nd Bayern goal of the season gives Bayern the edge at the break. But in truth, Bayern have been utterly dominant. Dortmund haven't turned up.
Bayern launch a blistering counter-attack. Coman has Müller and Lewandowski in support but goes for goal and, well, it's an absolutely woeful shot. The ball ends up closer to the corner flag than the goal.
You feel that Dortmund's best chance to score today could be from a set piece.
Hakimi is fouled by Alaba and Dortmund have a free-kick in a dangerous area on the right... but Gueirrero's whipped shot-cum-cross goes wide of the far post despite Witsel's best efforts to keep it in.
2-0 wouldn't have flattered Bayern at all...
Goal ruled out! Bayern have a goal chalked off for offside. Davies' cross reaches Lewandowski, whose shot deflects off Schulz and is put in by Gnabry, but the former Arsenal man was in an offside position when Lewandowski struck the ball.
Here's that change. Gueirrero is on for Sancho. The Englishman hasn't looked sharp, and the effects of that injury have taken its toll. Hazard moves across to the right.
Goretzka gets involved in a petty scrap with Witsel after the Belgian fouled Kimmich. Nothing more, and the referee has a word with Goretzka.
Dortmund are making an early change, with Gueirrero warming up. Unclear whether it's tactical or for injury at the moment. Sancho came into the game carrying an injury... we'll see in a moment.
Gnabry fires in a dangerous low cross that almost reaches Lewandowski, but Bürki is there. Dortmund can be thankful that their goalkeeper is having a good game.
Hakimi tries to send Götze on his way with a diagonal pass, but Pavard deals with it easily. Dortmund offering absolutely nothing at the moment.
Dortmund don't seem to know whether to press high or sit deep. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Smart pivot and shot by Gnabry and Bürki parries it away. Dortmund are under real pressure here. At the moment, it would be a miracle if they make it to half time only one goal down.
Chance for Bayern as Lewandowski cuts the ball back to Coman, whose shot is blocked on the line.
Meanwhile, it's a struggle for Dortmund. Individual mistakes meaning they just can't keep the ball. Bayern putting them under great pressure.
Bayern enjoying themselves out there. Coman goes past Hakimi with ease and produces a superb cross from the left, but it's centimetres too high for Gnabry, who had made a late run into the box.
Dortmund need to respond, but they also need to keep their heads. Bayern have demonstrated how ruthless they are, and the Bavarians have taken control now.
Lewandowski's goal means he maintains his extraordinary record of scoring in EVERY Bundesliga and Champions League game this season. Quite amazing.
GOAL! Bayern Munich 1-0 Borussia Dortmund - Lewandowski scores! An initial mistake by Sancho lets in Bayern, who work the ball out to Pavard and the Frenchman's cross is nodded in by Lewandowski.
Hakimi dispossessed by Alaba, who unleashes a swift counter-attack for Bayern. It breaks down but Bayern still have the ball...
Gnabry has a go with a volley, but it's an easy one for Bürki.
A missed opportunity for Dortmund as Sancho drives forward on the break, shapes to shoot but holds on to the ball a little too long and Bayern can get a foot in and make the clearance. Sancho had Dortmund players in support there too.
It's Dortmund who are playing with the greater confidence and composure at the moment. Of course, Bayern can break at and time but Dortmund are controlling things.
Alaba catches Götze late, but it's all laughs and smiles between the two former teammates.
Good running by Götze, who forces a corner off Martinez. The resulting corner from Hazard is headed clear. Dortmund applying some good pressure at the moment.
Coman launches a counter-attack for Bayern and immediately finds Lewandowski, who drives at the Dortmund defence but Hummels gets a foot in.
Sancho going head-to-head with Davies tonight. Both players are just 19.
Sancho gets into a good position but just runs out of space under pressure from Davies.
Coman again forced into some early defensive work after Hakimi pins him back.
A stand-offish start by both sides, as Dortmund show signs of settling. This is a game that neither side want to lose just as much as they want to win.
A long ball by Coman reaches Lewandowski, but he was just offside.
Dortmund have five points fewer than they did at this stage of last season. They really need to get the win today to re-establish themselves as title contenders.
Mario Götze is stopped in his tracks as he's launching a promising Dortmund counter-attack. The reason being that Thorgan Hazard had strayed offside.
Bayern dominating the early exchanges here - Dortmund yet to get their foot on it.
A chance within 40 seconds for Lewandowski, who runs behind the Dortmund defence to collect a loose backpass, but Bürki is alert and sweeps up just before the Pole reaches the ball.
We're underway! The 101st Bundesliga meeting between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund is underway...
The players are out and we're just about ready to go here...
Worth noting ahead of this one that Robert Lewandowski has quite remarkably scored in every single Bundesliga and Champions League game this season. The Pole is looking to keep that extraordinary run going tonight.
Borussia Dortmund are not without their problems either. Unlike their opponents' defensive issues, BVB are short on numbers in attack. Marco Reus is only deemed fit enough for the bench after he picked up an injury in last weekend's win over Wolfsburg and Paco Alcacer is also on the bench. Mario Götze starts as a false nine, with Jadon Sancho, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard just behind the front man.
Bayern Munich are playing their first league game since coach Niko Kovac was fired, following Bayern's 5-1 humbling at Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. Interim coach Hansi Flick, who has been promoted from his role as assistant coach while Bayern's search for a new head coach goes on, has immediately reinstated Javi Martinez, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman to the starting line-up. Philippe Coutinho and Thiago Alcantara drop to the bench as Bayern field a makeshift defence, given the absence of Niklas Süle and Lucas Hernandez through injury and Jerome Boateng through suspension.
