A comfortable half for Bayern whose remorseless start to the campaign continues.
A good cross from the left flank from Green but Goretzka is back to head the ball clear.

Hrgota goes in the book for a foul on Hernandez.
Another chance for Muller on his left foot, this time he is given space to line up the target from outside the box but he drags his effort wide.
Davies slides another dangerous ball into the penalty area but Greuther have numbers back and manage to clear the danger.
Hrgota shoots from 25 yards out but his effort is blocked by Pavard.
GOAL FOR BAYERN! Muller slots the ball home, Sane broke quickly then played Davies down the left flank and his pulled back centre got a slight deflection putting the ball into the path of Muller who stroked home his 131st Bayern goal with his left foot.
A bit of pressure from Greuther and Sane is forced to come back and give away a corner from Willems' cross.

The ball dropped for Goretzka 25 yards from goal and he aimed an effort well on the half-volley but it drifted just wide of the left-hand goalpost.
As expected Bayern are in control passing the ball at will in the Greuther half.
Bayern get the game underway...
A lovely singalong from the Greuther fans ahead of the game.
The sides are coming out onto the field now, not far away from kick off.
If Bayern get ahead early in this match we may seem them resting players in the second half with the home game in the Champions League against Dynamo Kiev coming up.
Whereas Greuther have just a point from their five games, Bayern have dropped just two, banging in 20 goals in the process.
So Bayern fielding a strong side against their fellow Bavarians who are propping up the table.
And this is how Greuther line up as they look to shock the Bundesliga champions...
This is the Bayern side who will take the field in just under an hour's time...
