A bending shot from range from the right boot of Kimmich just drops wide of the target. Horn had it covered.

58' 

Wolf breaks down the right on the overlap and fizzes in a dangerous cross, but it's dealt with by the sliding Boateng and Bayern can play out.

57' 

Duda fells Kimmich, and the Bayern attacking phase can continue.

54' 

Well worked down the right by the makeshift full back Sule, and the resulting corner is aimed for him, but nothing doing and here comes the next wave of pressure from the home side.

50' 

Bayern are ramping up the heat now trying to kill their opposition off. Sane wins the corner on the near side, whipped in by Kimmich, but held by Horn.

41' 

Really well grafted by Sane down the right against two Koln players, and he manages to whip in an inswinger, which just evades the heads of Goretzka and Lewandowski.

39' 

A loose pass from Mere, straight to Kimmich, but the through ball is too powerful for Lewandowski and rolls through for Horn.

37' 

Koln just can't get their feet on the ball at the moment. Every time they try and counter, the final or first ball isn't good enough, nor does the initial control suffice, and it allows for a swift Bayern turnover.

  • Robert Lewandowski

30' 

Corner, Bayern, Czichos misjudges it, and Sane delivers, but nodded away at the front post. The hosts' second wave ensues.

25' 

Sule's cross, fed by Goretzka, Lewandowski at the near post! Glanced just wide of the far stick.

24'

Floated in by Kimmich after a wonderful jinking run from Davies, and Musiala steals in, and nods it over.

22' 

Corner resulting from the free kick...in from Duda... nodded away by Boateng, and here go Bayern again.

GOAL! And the second phase brings the first goal! Neatly worked on the edge of the area between Kimmich, Sane and Goretzka, and the midfielder clips it to the back post for the 6'3" winger Eric Choupo-Moting to stoop and nod home.

17' 

A wonderfully weighted floated to the byline from Alaba for Davies, and the Canadian brings it down expertlly, feeding Lewandowski, who, twisting and turning, can't quite get off his shot.

15'

Here come the home side... Sule....!!!!!! A thunderbolt, but the side netting!!! What a hit.

13' 

Here's a corner for the visitors... Rexbhecaj delivers... pawed away by Neuer, and a Bayern attacking phase can blossom.

12' 

Koln certainly aren't afraid to test the frailties of Bayern's defensive structure here, they're throwing men forwards when they can... Ozcan and Rexbhecaj are trying to support the wing backs and the forwards, but they need to improve the quality of the final ball and the first touch if they are to trouble the three centre backs and the rapid Davies.

9' 

It's all hands on deck for Koln defensively. Bayern are pushing, trying to turn the screw. Choupo-Moting has been impressive down the left... here he is with a cross... and Sane drives it back in! Wide.

6' 

Really neatly worked through the field by Koln: a chipped ball wide from Horn finds Ozcan who flicks the ball on, Dennis chests it down for Duda, and the Jakobs cross is sent behind for a corner... short for Duda... but wasted.

4' 

A beautiful roll and flick from Choupo-Moting to set Davies off down the left on the overlap, but Salih Ozcan defends well and wins a free kick deep in his own box.

3' 

It is more of a back three in possession for Bayern: Sule is drifting wider than Alaba on the other side, but he's rarely getting forwards: he's offering passing options, but otherwise little down the right beyond Sane.

1' 

An energetic start here with a determined interception from Joshua Kimmich allows him to break the line, but his fizzed ball towards Sane is cut out.

1' 

And we're underway.

14:24 

5 minutes - the teams are on their way.

14:19 

10 minutes to go.

14:13 

Robert Lewandowski again leads the scoring charts - 26 this season in the league - surely he can't hit four today and make it 30?

14:12 

Koln sit three points above the relegation playoff place, and could make that six if they did the unthinkable and win today, especially considering that Arminia visit Dortmund today.

14:06 

Bayern sit two points clear of their nearest rivals RB Leipzig, and would stretch that lead to five were they to win here, but with Leipzig playing Borussia Monchengladbach later today in what will prove a stern test, Bayern could well see that five point lead sealed, or cut slimly to four.

14:01 

Half an hour to kick off.

13:46 

Two more prominent names to watch out for in the Koln side are the goalkeeper, Timo Horn. once on the radar of Manchester United, and 23-year old Spanish centre-half Jorge Mere, who plays the Fabio Cannavaro 'libero' role in the middle of the defensive trident: at just under 6'0", he's small for a centre-back, but he more than makes up for it with his recovery pace, reading of the game, and technical ability.

13:44 

As for the visitors, Ondrej Duda, once of Norwich City, will roam freely behind the nifty Emmanuel Dennis, with the Nigerian looking to use his pace to stretch the Bayern backline. Marius Wolf and Ismail Jakobs will have their hands full having to deal with Leroy Sane and Alphonso Davies respectively, but they can expect some support in the half-space from supporting midfielders Elvis Rexhbecaj and Salih Ozcan, to double up on their opposite numbers.

13:40 

However, do not be surprised if Bayern plump for a back three in possession, with Sule moving more centrally, and Kimmich drifting into the wide areas to create, becoming a more auxiliary right wing-back as a result, with Alphonso Davies given the licence to bomb forwards on the left, with David Alaba shifting a tad wider to cover the left half-space.

13:39 

Niklas Sule fills in at right-back for the sidelined Benjamin Pavard, and Bouna Sarr is dropped after a woeful performance in the embarrassing draw against Arminia Bielefeld. Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman are rested, and perhaps rightly so, with Der Klassiker next on the agenda for the reigning champions.

13:36 

Tactically, what are we expecting to see?

It seems as though Koln are going to try and flood the midfield with numbers in an attempt to stifle the deep-lying creator Joshua Kimmich, whilst for the hosts, Jamal Musiala comes in and is rewarded for his exceptional performance in midweek against Lazio, roaming behind Robert Lewandowski in the number 10 hole, flanked by Eric Choupo-Moting and Leroy Sane either side.

13:35 

Koln's substitutes are as follows: Ehizibue, Horn, Schmitz, Limnios, Meyer, Katterbach, Thielmann, Drexler, Zieler.

13:34 

Bayern demonstrate their strength in depth with this bench: Dantas, Muller, Martinez, Hernandez, Sarr, Gnabry, Roca, Coman, Hoffmann.

13:33 

Whilst the visitors have adopted a 3-5-2 shape: Horn, Cestic, Mere, Czichos, Wolf, Ozcan, Skhiri, Rexhbecaj, Jakobs, Dennis, Duda.

13:31 

Bayern are in their 4-2-3-1: Neuer, Sule, Boateng, Alaba, Davies, Goretzka, Kimmich, C-Moting, Musiala, Sane, Lewandowski.
