FT Wolfsburg 1-1 Bayern Munich. It's penalties!

Schurrle hammers a low snapshot at goal from 20 yards, but it's parried by Neuer.
Bayern sub: Gotze on, Muller off.
A slightly over zealous challenge by Vidal and the first yellow card of his Bayern career comes five minutes into it.
SAVE! Good save by Neuer, who gets down well to keep out a ferocious drive by Vierinha from 20 yards.
The players from both sides should remember this is effectively a friendly match.
In fact, Wolfsburg's Perisic, who has already been substituted, is yellow carded for throwing the ball towards the referee in an inappropriate manner.
Boateng and Schurrle clash and the Bayern defender has stayed down. A few tackles flying in and tempers fraying a little.
Bayern sub: Vidal on, Thiago off. Vidal comes on for his Bayern Munich debut.
Bendtner picks out Vieirinha, but the full back is unable to get a shot away.
Bayern sub: Rafinha on, Lewandowski off.
Double Wolfsburg sub: Kruse and Bendtner on, Perisic and Dost off.
Wolfsburg's Guilavogui earns a corner for his side, but it's cleared by Bayern. Wolfsburg are probing for that equaliser.
Wolfsburg seeing more of the ball at the moment, but Bayern happy to sit deep and soak up the pressure. No need for them to risk anything right now.
Chance for Bayern as Lewandowski is unable to get his shot away in the box. Muller steps in and tries to poke the ball towards goal, but Wolfsburg clear it. Just.
Wolfsburg sub: Schurrle on, Cagligiuri off.
Naldo knees Lewandowski in the back and Bayern have a free-kick in a promising area here.
BIG CHANCE! De Bruyne sends Dost clean through, Dost's shot is full of power but is straight at Neuer, who bats it away. Lovely through pass by De Bruyne to create the opening.
Chance at the other end for Robben as a wicked delivery comes in from the right, but it's just too quick for Robben who cannot get a meanigful contact on the ball - but wins a corner.
CHANCE! Neuer has to tip over after Klose's header called him into action. A very open game, this.
Bayern well on top at the start of this second half.
Douglas Costa causing problems again down the left flank with his searing pace. This time Wolfsburg are able to hack his cross clear.
GOAL! Wolfsburg 0-1 Bayern Munich: Robben breaks the deadlock, firing in from close range after a good run and cross by Douglas Costa on the left.
Half number two is underway...
HALF-TIME: Wolfsburg 0-0 Bayern. A hugely entertaining first period is brought to a close.
This could feasibly be 3-3 already...
De Bruyne reacted to his miss by barking at the referee. Not sure why.
NO! What. A. Miss. De Bruyne heads the ball over Neuer and is faced with an open goal. Just slot it home, Kev! Somehow, he clips a shot wide of the post.
The Volkswagen Arena is still bouncing. Wolfsburg are growing into the contest...
WHAT A SAVE! Medhi Benatia is a lucky man! The former Roma man diverts a cross towards his own goal, and watches with relief as Neuer reacts brilliantly to save.
This is a most welcome advert for German football. It's been a thrilling match. Now a goal please, lads...
CHANCE! Costa involved again! He's fed by Robert Lewandowski but, for some unknown reason, he tries to play an audacious one-two when he should have just shot...
SO CLOSE! Ivan Perisic flicks a corner towards the back post, but it runs just wide.
YELLOW CARD! Costa has been heavily involved on his German football debut… Sadly, his latest contribution earns him a flash of yellow.
Oops. No they won't.
The resulting corner is absolutely garbage. Still, Bayern quickly force another. Perhaps they'll fare better at the second time of asking?
Robben saunters down the right flank. He forces a corner.
The stadium is absolutely bouncing. What a start to this encounter.
SCORCHER! Vieirinha - the ultimate signing on FIFA - lets rip from a tight angle... So close! Guardiola looks concerned.
An aimless punt downfield relieves the Wolfsburg defence for a few seconds. Manuel Neuer gathers possession. The onslaught resumes.
CHANCE! Jerome Boateng shoots against the crossbar! The opening exchanges are a far cry from the 4-1 thrashing Wolfsburg dished out earlier in 2015. Bayern are completely dominant
All Bayern in the opening stages. Arjen Robben predictably cuts onto his left foot at the first opportunity, but his cross is weak and cleared.
SCRAMBLE! Douglas Costa almost makes an immediate impact. His persistence sparks a melee inside the Wolfsburg six-yard box. Somehow, the ball stays out of the net.
And we're up and running!
BAYERN MUNICH: Neuer, Benatia, Boateng, Alaba, Lahm, Alonso, Thiago, Robben, Mueller, Costa, Lewandowski.
Pep Guardiola fields a tasty XI in German football's curtain raiser. But there's no spot for new recruit Arturo Vidal, who takes a spot on the bench.

Manchester City target Kevin De Bruyne starts for the German Cup holders. Elsewhere, Bas Dost gets the nod in attack.
