Schützenfest at the Oktoberfest: Munich climb to the top of the Bundesliga with a canter victory
90th minute + 3: Final whistle in Munich! The Bavarians celebrate a shooting festival against Bochum at the Oktoberfest and are once again the leaders of the Bundesliga.
90th minute: Three minutes of injury time.
88th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 7-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Kane. Three-pack for the 100 million man! It is his seventh goal of the season. Laimer puts through for the uncovered Mazraoui, who crosses at the first post on the superstar. The centre-forward does not let this chance pass him by. The VAR intervened, but Mazraoui was probably not offside.
86th minute: The Bavarians bring the result effortlessly over time. The DFB-Pokal continues on Tuesday at third-division club Preußen Münster.

FC Bayern vs. VfL Bochum in the live ticker: Tel strikes again
81st minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 6-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Tel. The young striker strikes again. Bernardo with the next disaster pass directly on Kane. The Englishman serves Tel, who deliberately puts the ball in the bottom right corner from the edge of the penalty area. It's his next wild card goal.
77th minute: Double substitution for Bayern: Goretzka comes in for Kimmich, Müller for Coman.
75th minute: A look at the other places: Borussia Dortmund have taken a 1-0 lead against VfL Wolfsburg thanks to a goal from Marco Reus. Timo Werner also gave RB Leipzig a 1-0 lead in Gladbach.
69th minute: Krätzig almost scores his Bundesliga debut goal. The youngster finishes with the inside from 18 yards. But Riemann has his arms up and deflects the ball over the crossbar. That would have been something.
65th minute: Double substitution at Bayern: The young Tel comes in for veteran Choupo-Moting in the attack, youngster Krätzig is allowed to play for Davies. It's the 20-year-old's Bundesliga debut.
64th minute: Dangerous! After a chippball, Coman puts the ball across with his head. Choupo-Moting almost finishes, but Loosli is in between and clarifies. However, VfL's actions look quite erratic.
61st minute: Bochum now limit themselves to making as few mistakes as possible. What is presented no longer has anything to do with creativity. The Munich-based team plays it down easily.
FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum in the live ticker: Kane converts penalty
54th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 5-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Kane (penalty). The Englishman certainly makes the ball into the bottom left corner. Riemann loaded. It is already the sixth goal of the season for the superstar.
53rd minute: Penalty for Bayern. That's bad from Bochum! Ordets plays the ball right into Choupo-Moting's feet before the sixteenth. The defender wants to make up for his mistake and interferes with the shot. But he clearly gets the ball in his hand.
52nd minute: Bochum look more stable after the break. VfL get better into the duels and have a different body language.
49th minute: Bayern continue to dominate the game after the break. Once again, the in-form Sané drives the ball. He's in a good mood at the moment, and he's showing what he's really capable of.
46th minute: Bochum make a substitution: Gamboa comes on for Losilla.
46th minute: Change at FC Bayern: Upamecano moves into defence for de Ligt.
46th minute: The home game of FC Bayern continues!

38th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 4-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Sané. And the lively goal-scoring continues. The people of Bochum are now eagerly providing support. In defence, the assignment is not correct at all. Kane sends Sané with a simple chipped ball. Sané has no one in front of him, the middle is completely open. The international, who is in top form, looks at Riemann and nets.
36th minute: Bochum make a double substitution: Loosli comes in for Passlack, Hofmann for Wittek. The ex-lion seemed completely overwhelmed near his home town of Freising.
36th minute: And again the Bavarians. Kane gets through for "Choupo", who fails in a one-on-one against Riemann. Bochum's defence cannot find access. In this condition, VfL is a relegation candidate.
33rd minute: Bochum are looking for some relief. But they can't get stuck in front of the Munich Gate. A used afternoon so far for the guests from the pot.
FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum live ticker: Munich has an easy game
29th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 3-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: de Ligt. That's easy! Kimmich hits a corner in front of the five-yard area, where de Ligt gets an unchallenged header. The Dutchman puts the ball in the left corner. Hardly any resistance from the NRW club, which actually has to defend this scene. Will it be clear today?
28th minute: Next chance for Bayern. Coman and Choupo-Moting go into a duel with two defenders. Coman tries it himself, but shoots the ball inches past the right post.
26th minute: Coman gets stuck in the Bochum defence, then Sané loses the ball in a dribble. Technical errors on both sides now.
23rd minute: Dangerous! Sharp ball from the left in front of the first post. Asano almost gets close, but Ulreich has the ball safely. The first good chance for the otherwise harmless VfL.
22nd minute: A look at the other places: The score between Gladbach and Leipzig as well as between Dortmund and Wolfsburg is still 0-0.
18th minute: Bochum's goalkeeper Riemann has to be treated after a collision. Things are not going well for VfL.
12th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 2-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Kane. Munich's opponent is now completely out of character. Davies can literally walk through the defence. Ordets tries to clarify, but instead puts the ball on Kane with his thigh. The Englishman doesn't hesitate for long and scores his fifth goal of the season.
9th minute: Bayern clearly dominate this game. After a Kimmich corner, Laimer heads the ball just over the crossbar.

FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum in the live ticker: Choupo-Moting scores to take the lead
4th minute: Tooooooorrrrr!! FC Bayern 1-0 VfL Bochum, scorer: Chpoupo-Moting. Tuchel's tactics are paying off. The second striker strikes. Sané sends Coman with a fine ball through the interface towards the baseline. The Frenchman raises his head and crosses for "Choupo", who only has to put his foot down.
3rd minute: Wittek hits the ball into the upper tier. The Freisinger once played for the Munich "Löwen" for 14 years. Bochum is at least in the game.
1st minute: Huge chance for Bayern! Sharp cross from the left in front of the five-meter area. In the middle, Choupo-Moting rises high and puts the header right on keeper Riemann. That could have been 1-0.
1st minute: Let's start with the game Bayern against Bochum!
Update from September 23, 15:25 p.m.: Will FC Bayern be top of the table at least until tomorrow? The answer can be found in the Bundesliga home game against VfL Bochum.
Update from September 23, 15:15 p.m.: Why doesn't Mathys Tel start again, Thomas Tuchel is asked on Sky. "It's a matter of time. He'll still play for us and he's in top shape," said the FCB coach. Bochum like to hit high balls, so they need "a different type of player than Mathys, that's why Choupo plays". Munich starts with a dual leadership of Harry Kane and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
FC Bayern vs. VfL Bochum in the live ticker: Ex-Lion Wittek plays for Munich opponents
Update from September 23, 15:10 p.m.: With Maximilian Wittek, an ex-player of TSV 1860 Munich is in the starting line-up of VfL Bochum. Born in Freising, he played for the "Löwen" from 2003 to 2017, with whom he was relegated from the 2nd Bundesliga at the time. Today he starts as a left winger and is expected to move Bayern into a five-man chain when in possession of the ball.
Update from September 23, 15:05 p.m.: For Bayern, of course, it's always interesting to see what Dortmund and Leipzig are doing. At the same time, BVB will face VfL Wolfsburg with ex-Munich coach Niko Kovac this afternoon. At BVB, the German international Füllkrug will strike instead of Haller. Malen, Adeyemi, Can and Süle are all on the bench.
Update from September 23, 14:50 p.m.: Let's move on to the Bochum line-up. Striker Hofmann only sits on the bench. Instead, Japan's Asano and Antwi-Adjei strike for VfL, who are likely to start with a back three defensively.
FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum in the live ticker: Tuchel brings de Ligt and Choupo-Moting
Update from September 23, 14:35 p.m.: Bayern's line-up is there. And: Tuchel is quite surprising. Mazraoui starts at the back right as well as Choupo-Moting in attack - not for, but next to Kane. Müller, Goretzka, Gnabry and Upamecano are only on the bench. De Ligt is allowed to play in the middle of the defence.
Update from September 23, 14:30 p.m.: Will Bayern get a grip on their defence today, which has not looked solid recently? They conceded two goals against Leverkusen and three against Manchester United. Dayot Upamecano in particular had recently shown weaknesses. Will Thomas Tuchel bring Matthijs de Ligt for Frenchman?
FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum live ticker: Thomas Tuchel praises Mathys Tel
Update from September 23, 14:15 p.m.: After the 4-3 win against Manchester United, Munich coach Thomas Tuchel praised the young goalscorer Mathys Tel in particular. "At the moment we have something going on with him. Every time he comes, he scores," Tuchel said on DAZN about the 18-year-old Frenchman: "It's unfair to him, of course. Because, of course, he deserves to start. And yet, when you have a player who makes the difference from the bench so regularly, then that's a quality."
Update from September 23, 13:55 p.m.: Whether Bayern will be top of the table after this matchday also depends heavily on Bayer Leverkusen. The Rhinelanders play on Sunday (15.30 CET) against 1. RB Leipzig, 1899 Hoffenheim and VfL Wolfsburg (nine points each) as well as BVB (eight points) are putting pressure on the Munich team. The excitement is palpable on this match day!
First reported on 23 September: Munich - FC Bayern? Borussia Dortmund? Bayer Leverkusen? RB Leipzig? No, the league leaders of the Bundesliga are VfB Stuttgart with top striker Serhou Guirassy before this Saturday. The attacker has already scored ten goals in five games for the Swabians.
Thomas Tuchel back in the coaching zone: Munich coach sets the tone
Stuttgart lead the standings with twelve points, but Munich (ten points) can pass them today if they beat VfL Bochum. And that, of course, is the declared goal of coach Thomas Tuchel's squad, who is allowed to set the tone again from the coaching zone today after his place in the stands against Manchester United.
Against the kickers from the Ruhr area, his team is the clear favorite. But be careful: VfL have lost only one of their first four games of the season and drawn three times.

FC Bayern vs VfL Bochum live ticker: Is Matthijs de Ligt in the starting line-up?
The fans are likely to be eagerly awaiting Bayern's line-up. For weeks, there has been a lively debate as to whether Joshua Kimmich would not be better off at right-back instead of in midfield. And that far beyond the Isar metropolis.
In addition, Mathys Tel has made a lasting bid for a place in the starting eleven, most recently with another goal in Munich's 4-3 win over Man United in the Champions League. Dutchman Matthijs de Ligt is also hoping for the starting line-up, as the actual defensive boss under Tuchel is currently mostly left out.
