Bayern now manage the 2-0 here.

Not much will happen there.

Mané leaves the field and is replaced by youngster Mathys Tel.

74 minutes:

The ball lands in the Wolfsburg goal, but the goal doesn't count.


The VAR then checks for almost three minutes whether this is the case - and then sticks to the decision.

70 minutes:

Musiala and Pavard combine beautifully on the right forward, then the Frenchman brings the cross to the back post where Mané lurks.

But the new superstar is acting a bit unlucky today, as it is here, and somehow manages to get the header in his hand.

Mané has to laugh himself.

66 minutes:

Bayern no longer have to, Wolfsburg can no longer.

So the game is now rippling along.

Sané wants to stage Mané, but his allusion is too imprecise.

58 minutes:

Nicely combined again!

This time Sané with the degree, which is then deflected.

Castreels reacts well again and clears for a corner.

From this Upamecano pushes in to the supposed 3:0 - but the Frenchman was offside and the goal does not count.

55 minutes:

Nice attack via Sané and Musiala.

The youngster puts it down to Müller, who tries his left hand from 17 meters out, but no problem for Casteels.

49 minutes:

First good chance in the second half - for the guests!

Svanberg puts a ball into the five from the right, but Nmecha can't get to it because Upamecano defends well, then the ball is cleared.

46 minutes: The second half continues.

Leroy Sané replaces Gnabry.

Wolfsburg has also changed, Max Kruse is now in the game.

45.+3 minutes:

The first half is whistle-off with three minutes of added time.

FC Bayern deservedly lead here against very destructive Wolfsburg.

Bayern extend the lead!

Müller scores 2-0 with the pike

44 minutes: GOOOOOOOOR!

Bayern follow suit.

Davies gets through strongly on the left, puts it back on Kimmich, whose shot puts Müller into the goal to make it 2-0.

39 minutes:

Musiala serves Mané, who goes into a one-on-one with Bornauw and makes him wet!

But then the ball bounces a little too far for him and Casteels can pick up the ball.

Musiala makes it 1-0!

Youngster puts FCB in front with a sugar goal

33 minutes: GOOOOOOOOOR!

How outstanding is this boy?

Musiala is passed 20 meters in front of the goal with his back to goal, prevails brilliantly and then converts dryly from 17 meters with the bottom right into the left corner!

28 minutes:

Wolfsburg can no longer get out of their own half.

However, the Kovac squad is also very disciplined, which is why there is still little space for Bayern, who are clearly better, but are still struggling.

23 minutes:

Now there's yellow for Sven Ulreich.

The FCB replacement keeper complained too loudly on the bench.

dream combination!

But VAR takes back Mané hits

19 minutes:


Is that superbly played?

Musiala prevails in the center, stages Gnabry and he brings the ball sharply into the middle, where Mané only has to insert the ball.

But VAR checks the place... and the goal doesn't count.

It stays at 0:0.

16 minutes:

Good free-kick situation for the guests.

But the FCB wall can steer the shot over the goal - the corner that follows brings nothing.

14 minutes:

Since we have the first big chance!

Pavard puts a header on the crossbar after a Kimmich corner.

11th Minute:

The Bavarians are still unable to find any means against the cleverly acting wolves.

Now the Nagelsmann squad is firmly established in the Wolfsburg half.

But degrees so far?

5 minutes:

Huge chance for Wolfsburg!

First Nmecha is blocked.

Wimmer heads the ball to the six-yard line, where Davies intervenes but almost maneuvers the ball into his own goal.

The ball still caresses the outer post.

Lucky for Munich in this scene.

3 minutes:

The “Wolves” get into this game well and get a first corner kick.

However, it brings nothing.

Nevertheless: VfL presses far ahead from the start.

You have to act like that against Bayern to even have a chance.

He praises his coach for clear transfer agreements: "That's what makes Julian special.

If we say it doesn't suit the club, he goes with us.

Working with him is relaxed.

We can argue and get loud, but we always step out of the room and understand each other.”

 "It's always nice to come back where you've played or worked as a coach," said the 50-year-old Croatian before the game in the Allianz Arena in Munich: "That's why I'm happy.

You will meet many companions in the game.” Before the duel, his successor Julian Nagelsmann said: “Niko Kovac definitely won more titles in his first season at Bayern than I did.

I know that.

Nevertheless, things did not go perfectly during his term of office.” Nagelsmann “only” won the Bundesliga league in his first season – actually not enough for the Bavarian claims.

After challenger BVB's second win in their second game, Bayern are now under pressure to go three points past Westphalia, who are the only team with a full haul so far.
