Conclusion:Two of FC Bayern's streaks in the Champions League are broken: The Munich team could not get beyond a 75-000 (0-0) draw against FC Copenhagen on Wednesday evening in front of 0,0 spectators at the sold-out Allianz Arena. It was the first Champions League game since 11.4.2018 (against Sevilla) without a goal of their own. In addition, after 17 preliminary round victories in a row, they failed to win in the group stage for the first time. After an exhausting few weeks, the German record champions acted passively with little pace and dynamism.
World Cup winner Manuel Neuer saved Bayern's clean sheet with a brilliant double save in the 87th minute. On the pitch, there was referee anger around referee Stephanie Frappart. The Frenchwoman had first pointed to the spot after an alleged handball in injury time (90+3), but reversed the decision after a hint from the VAR. After 62 minutes and 85 minutes, the Munich team had already demanded a penalty kick after a pluck and a slide - in vain. Bayern had already qualified for the round of <> before the fifth matchday.

Munich remain without a goal: For the first time in 17 games, no win in Champions League preliminary round
90th minute + 7: The game is over! For the first time in over five-and-a-half years, Bayern have not scored a goal in a Champions League group stage match and remain without a win in the Champions League group stage for the first time in 17 games.
90th minute + 6: Munich coach Tuchel is still upset about the decisions of the referee team. In doing so, the main interpretations of the French could be understood.

90th minute + 3: Attention! The Bavarians claim handball in the penalty area of the Danes. A ricochet bounces Ankersen against the bent arm. The French referee first gives a penalty - but then takes it back. The VAR calls them to the screen And: The decision is again comprehensible on the basis of the TV images. FCB coach Tuchel is still raging on the sidelines and complaining loudly to the fourth official. He obviously saw the scene differently.

90th minute: Five minutes of stoppage time at the Munich Arena.
87th minute: Huge effort from Neuer! After a corner kick, the world champion is on the spot twice. Copenhagen closes from very close range. But the 37-year-old is twice sensationally back up on the line and also fends off the follow-up shot.
86th minute: Bayern make a substitution: Young player Krätzig gets the chance to collect a few Champions League minutes. For Davies, the working day on the pitch is over.

85th minute: Excitement in Fröttmaning! Once again, the Schiri team from France checks a potential penalty after a Munich player went down in the opponent's penalty area. Kimmich complains vigorously, claims to have seen a bump against Müller. However, the TV pictures show: This was harmless!
83rd minute: Copenhagen push forward again, apparently trying to put on a discreet pressing in the final minutes. Is anyone still waiting for that one chance?
78th minute: Bayern don't have much pace. Grabara can pick up the next cross ball. Will there be something from Copenhagen instead? A win would be extremely valuable for the Danes with a view to a possible round of <> on this cold November evening in Munich.
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen live score: Sven Ulreich is booked.
73rd minute: Uiuiuiuiuiui ... Stand-in goalkeeper Sven Ulreich is shown the yellow card. The Swabian had complained loudly on the bench about a decision by referee Frappart.
71st minute: Copenhagen make a substitution with P. Ankersen replacing Boilesen. The tactical orientation of the Scandinavians remains clearly defensive. They want the draw for the showdown on the last matchday.
68th minute: Kane! Now it's time to get moving. The Englishman shoots from around 25 yards out. Grabara has to stretch to steer the ball over the bar.
67th minute: Careful! Achouri, who has just come on as a substitute, cuts inside from the left after a quick hook and shoots straight to the first post. Neuer is down and saves the ball.
64th minute: Bayern make a triple substitution: Gnabry comes on for Tel, Sané for Coman and youngster Pavlovic for veteran Guerreiro.

62nd minute: Uhhhhh... Tel goes down after a slight tug in the Danish penalty area. Referee Frappart and her team try to do a video check - the Frenchwoman decides against a penalty.
60th minute: Copenhagen make a double substitution: Tunisian international Achouri replaces super-talented Roony. Oskarsson is allowed to come in for Claesson.
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Surprise in Munich?
57th minute: A surprise is brewing in Munich. It looks like Copenhagen could actually play for a draw. The Bavarians can't think of much at the moment and the Danes are disciplined in keeping their positions around their own goal.
52nd minute: A cross from Coman lands in the gloves of goalie Grabara. Bavaria is currently only doing the bare minimum. Saving energy is probably the order of the day for the final spurt before Christmas.
50th minute: Kane loses the ball in the opponent's box. There is still nothing to be seen of the English superstar today. However, the striker obviously doesn't play with one hundred percent of his ability either.
48th minute: Dangerous! Copenhagen come out of the dressing room bravely and with a lot of pull to the goal. Diogo marches and tries a curler from distance. However, the Portuguese circles the ball around the right post.
46th minute: The Champions League match in Fröttmaning continues!

45th minute + 1: Break in Munich! Without goals, it goes into the dressing rooms in the arena.
44th minute: The chance? No! Laimer shovels the ball to the six-yard box. Müller slips past. Tel is ready, but fouls his opponent when he tries to shoot, who intervenes.
40th minute: Young Tel is extremely eager and motivated. There's no question about it: The 18-year-old Frenchman wants to recommend himself for more playing time. But since he has to play on the flanks today, he hardly gets into finishing positions. Patience is required.
36th minute: Bayer now try to play long diagonal balls across half the pitch. The Munich team can't get into a high passing tempo because the Danes are densely staggered with eight men around their own penalty area when FCB are in possession. Very disciplined play by the guests.
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Thomas Müller fails to beat the goalkeeper
30th minute: Great chance for Munich! Kimmich sends Laimer towards the baseline. The Austrian crosses into the back of the defence to Tel, who lays it back directly with his head. Müller has run in at the back post, but fails from close range to keeper Grabara, who plays with a face mask.
27th minute: Huge chance for Copenhagen! Pass through the alley and suddenly Lerager is through. However, the 30-year-old Dane breaks off the attack and crosses to Roony Bardghji. The Swedish super-talent flicks the ball inches past the left post. That can be the 1:0 for the guests ...
24th minute: FC Bayern play patiently around the Danish penalty area. So far, however, there is no way through, as the opponent usually stops with five, sometimes six players on the last line and builds a Scandinavian bulwark. Müller crosses again and again, but can't (yet) tear any gaps.

20th minute: Copenhagen look stable and take the initiative. The Bavarians are now letting the opponent come. It's still a wait and see in Fröttmaning.
FC Bayern gegen FC Kopenhagen im Live-Ticker: Mathys Tel vergibt Großchance
14. Minute: Großchance für Bayern! Tel leitet den Angriff selber ein. Diagonaler Chippball an der Box und dann ist der junge Franzose plötzlich frei. Der Stürmer nimmt den Ball mit vollem Risiko und zimmert die Kugel einen Meter über das Kreuzeck hinweg.
9. Minute: Der erfahrene Keeper Grabara muss gegen Müller aus dem Tor kommen - und hat den Ball sicher. Bayerns Oldie ist viel in Bewegung und bindet die Abwehrspieler der Dänen.
6. Minute: Erneut bleibt Coman hängen, diesmal am Sechzehner. Müller war in der Box gekreuzt. Aus der Szene hätten die Bayern mehr machen können.
5. Minute: Coman geht das erste Mal gefährlich in den gegnerischen Strafraum. Doch Müller kommt nicht an das Zuspiel des schnellen Franzosen ran.
3. Minute: Die Münchner beginnen mit einem hohen Pressing und setzen die Dänen früh unter Druck. Kopenhagen zieht sich direkt in die eigene Hälfte zurück.

Update from 29 November, 20:45 CET: This record is impressive: The Munich team have won all of their last 17 group games in the Champions League. In addition, Bayern are unbeaten in 38 games in the preliminary round of the Champions League. Both series are running records in the competition.
Update from 29 November, 20:35 CET: Bayern will be without Minjae Kim (hip contusion), Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (knee problems) and Noussair Mazraoui (gastrointestinal infection) against Copenhagen. Kim is not spared after exhausting weeks with eternally long international trips, but is battered. "Choupo" also came back from the away game in Cologne with an injury.
Munich line-up: Leon Goretzka has to play in the middle of the defence
Update from November 29, 20:25 p.m.: Thomas Tuchel is on the microphone at DAZN. "It's about keeping our form. We always play against our own standards when we put on the jersey," explained the Munich coach: "We play to keep our best limit and clearly to win."
On opponents Copenhagen, he said: "They're a very flexible team who play very bravely and have nothing to lose. The rooms, if they are open at all, are only open for a very short time." The Bavarians were "forced to change. Otherwise, Goretzka would have played in an eight-man or ten-man position," he said, confirming that the actual midfielder plays in the centre of defence. Why can't striker Serge Gnabry start from the start?
"When you change five or six players, they don't have any rhythm with each other. That's why it makes more sense to change two or three players," Tuchel explained. This is more stable for the overall formation.
Update from November 29, 20:15 p.m.: How does coach Tuchel let his Bayern line up against Copenhagen? In Fröttmaning, 50 minutes before kick-off, it was discussed in the Arena that Goretzka could move into central defence with a back four and Guerreiro would play as a six next to Kimmich. The line-up of the Munich team would then look like this:

FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Kim missing, Müller in the starting eleven
Update from November 29, 19:58 p.m.: Bayern's line-up is in: South Korean centre-back Kim is not in the squad, Leroy Sané is on the bench. It could be that the Munich team will play with a double striker today. Mathys Tel, Thomas Müller and Harry Kane are on the pitch together. Does FC Bayern play with a back three or a back four today? Coach Thomas Tuchel will answer that question in a moment in Fröttmaning.
Line-up Bavaria: Neuer - Laimer, Upamecano, Davies - Coman, Kimmich, Goretzka, Guerreiro - Müller - Tel, Kane
Update from November 29, 19:45 p.m.: The first match of Group A is already underway. Manchester United led Galatasaray 2-1 at half-time. Garnacho (11th minute) and Bruno Fernandes (18th) scored for England, Ziyech (29th) reduced the deficit for the Turks with a free-kick goal. The atmosphere in the Turkish metropolis is once again magnificent. The winner of this game can put themselves in a position for the showdown for the round of <> on the last matchday of the preliminary round in mid-December. Currently, Man United are second with six points.
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen live ticker: Matthijs de Ligt in rehabilitation training
Update from November 29, 19:25 p.m.: Matthijs de Ligt is currently missing due to injury. The Dutch defender is currently recovering from a medial ligament injury in his knee. On Monday, the 24-year-old central defender was able to complete a running session.
Nevertheless, the fans should probably not hope for a return of de Ligt soon. On Tuesday, FCB coach Thomas Tuchel was asked if de Ligt was still an option for this year. "My feeling is no," the coach said succinctly. So the German record champions will have to play the remaining games until Christmas with only Dayot Upameanco and Minjae Kim in the middle of the defence.
Update from November 29, 19:10 p.m.: Do the Danes really have hopes of winning in Munich? A fellow countryman is restrained. "I have a hard time with the idea of FC Copenhagen winning away from home. Even though the club has played very well in the Champions League so far, it is an extremely difficult task that awaits at the Allianz Arena," said Danish journalist Kristian Porse from the portal bold.dk to tz: "I think that FC Copenhagen can take a maximum of one point from the game. To be honest, it would be a bit of a sensation if they drew away to Bayern Munich."
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Munich clearly lead the table
Update from November 29, 18:50 p.m.: Let's move on to the standings in Group A of the Champions League. The Bavarians are clearly at the top of the rankings ahead of Copenhagen. Man United are weakening in the Champions League, but have recently shown rising form in the Premier League. The result was a 3-0 win at Everton. Since 18:45 CEST, the English have been challenged in the early game of the group at Galatasaray Istanbul. This is what the table looked like before the start of matchday five.

FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Danes hope for the round of 16
Update from November 29, 18:30 p.m.: Welcome to our live ticker! FC Bayern will take on underdogs FC Copenhagen in the Champions League today. After a spectacular 4-3 win against Manchester United last matchday, the Danes are hoping for the round of <>. Excitement is guaranteed in Fröttmaning, although the Munich team has already qualified for the next round.
First reported on 29 November: Munich - FC Bayern are already in the round of 21 of the Champions League. The Munich side are leading a highly exciting Group A with twelve points, in which FC Copenhagen are surprisingly in second place ahead of matchday five. Tonight (<> p.m.), the Danes are now guests at the Allianz Arena.
Mystery about Bayern's line-up: How much does Thomas Tuchel rotate through?
Copenhagen (-1 goal) currently has four points, the same number as Galatasaray Istanbul (-2 goals). English record champions Manchester United follow in fourth place with three points and minus two goals.
With their performance on Wednesday evening, the Bavarians can therefore significantly influence the allocation of second place, which entitles them to move into the knockout phase. After coach Thomas Tuchel did not make a single change in the 1-0 (1-0) win against FC Köln last Friday, a larger rotation in the FCB line-up is expected against the outsiders from Scandinavia today.

Candidates for a break after exhausting weeks are likely to be the Frenchman Kingsley Coman and the German international Leroy Sané in attack. Goalgetter Harry Kane could also take a break. Serge Gnabry, Mathys Tel and veteran Thomas Müller are available as substitutes.
FC Bayern vs FC Copenhagen in the live ticker: Thomas Müller once again from the start?
Müller has only played 66 minutes in the premier class so far this season. In the Bundesliga, the 34-year-old World Cup winner was only in the starting line-up four times in ten appearances. The striker from Otterfing never played through and usually did not get beyond the role of a joker, which coincides with the DFB team under national coach Julian Nagelsmann. Will the fan favourite for his "Reds" be allowed to start from the start again today?
