GORETZKA SURELY SEALS THE WIN!
The substitute gets the vital touch to put Bayern two goals to the good. It's quality between him and Gnabry as they exchange one-twos into the box before Gnabry flicks Goretzka in and he quickly slots the ball past Luthe. A classy, classy goal.
GOAL!2 : 0
Augsburg have the ball in the Bayern net through Niederlechner, but the striker was offside when he was played in on goal. A big let-off for Bayern there!
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR GNABRY
Superb football from Bayern as they pass their way through the Augsburg team. Müller sends Davies into the box and he cuts the ball across to Gnabry, but he can't slide the ball into the net from the near post.
Both Thiago and Finnbogason are down after a collision. The Spaniard will likely receive a booking, but the pair are both slow to get up.
WAS THAT THE CHANCE!?
A huge, huge opportunity for Augsburg and it falls to Niederlechner. A cross comes into the box from left the and the striker meets it perfectly, but Neuer makes a huge save. The rebound falls back to him but it's deflected behind for a corner. Niederlechner has his head in his hands after that one...
STILL ONLY 1-0...
Bayern have dominated this second half with 12 attempts on goal to Augsburg's 0, but the score remains the same. The chance for Augsburg to get an equaliser still remains, but Bayern are looking to make sure of victory.
GNABRY CLOSE AGAIN
The German picks up the ball 30 yards from goal and skips past Jedvaj before shooting low at goal. Luthe is down well to make another save, this time with his legs.
GNABRY IN ON GOAL
A big chance for 2-0, but Gnabry can't take it. He's sent in one-on-one with Luthe and reaches the box before shooting, across Luthe towards the far bottom corner, but his effort drags just wide.
THE NEXT BIG SAVE!
Gnabry weaves his way through the Augsburg defence into the box before passing to Coutinho to shoot, but Luthe is across his goal well to make a big save.
Max looks shattered as he comes off, replaced by Vargas with Augsburg looking to make sure they have energy in attack.
ZIRKZEE SO CLOSE!
A few good chances for Bayern who come within inches of doubling their lead. Gnabry finds Coutinho in the box and he shoots but it's blocked and runs the way of Müller. He cuts past one defender and lays the ball to Zirkzee who flicks it at goal, but Luthe is on hand to make a diving save. Augsburg defending for their lives.
MÜLLER RECORD UNDER FLICK
The German forward has been in ridiculous form for Bayern under Hansi Flick. Since his appointment, Müller has scored six goals and provided 12 assists in 15 games.
As things stand, Bayern have a four-point lead on Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga table.
ZIRKZEE HITS ONE WIDE
Kimmich's corner comes out to Thiago on the edge. He chests to control and volleys a shot, but it's blocked down and picked up by Zirkzee. He quickly turns and pokes a shot at goal, but it drifts wide off the outside of his right foot.
MÜLLER THE MAN!
After all those attempts to breakdown the Augsburg defence, a long ball does the job. Jerome Boateng is the architect with a delightful long ball into the Augsburg box. Müller makes the perfect run to meet it and side-foots the ball beyond Luthe. A difficult one for him to handle, but he does so for his sixth of the season.
GOAL!1 : 0
GNABRY HEADS OVER
Patient build-up from Bayern who are looking for any opening in the Augsburg defence. Gnabry plays a pass wide to Pavard and then races into the box to meet his cross, but it's a touch too high for him and he can't angle his header on target.
MAX FIRES HIGH AND WIDE
First attempt of the second also goes to Augsburg, as it did in the first. Max fires a shot high and wide of the mark on a counter.
We're off and running for the second half with no changes for either side. Will we see Bayern attack with more intent?
MÜLLER COMES SO CLOSE!
First real chance of the game for the home side comes seconds before the half-time whistle is blown. Gnabry swings in a cross from the right which meets Müller's run, but he sends his half-volley high over the crossbar from in front of goal on the penalty spot.
DAVIES DOING DAVIES THINGS
The Canadian is causing problems for Augsburg down the left here, always sprinting, always asking for the ball. He's such a threat with Gnabry down that left flank. A key area for Augsburg to keep control of in this game.
The first shot of the game for Bayern comes from their full-back, who volleys at goal after a corner is cleared to the edge of the Augsburg box. His effort is blocked.
AUGSBURG DEFENDING THEIR GROUND
It's been a strange first half here in Munich with the home side unable to find their flow in attack. Maybe it's the one-off kits, maybe it's the sunshine, or maybe it's Augsburg defensive front which is causing them problems. The away side pressing high and making sure Bayern have no time to choose their path forward.
THE LONGEST WAIT OF THE SEASON
Bayern fans haven't had to wait beyond the 26th minute of a Bundesliga game this season to see their side take a shot at goal. We're over the half-hour mark now and still no attempts on goal made by the home side. Credit to Augsburg for that.
MAX TAKES A KNOCK
The wing-back is slow to get up after a challenge with Davies, but he should be able to continue. A vital part of the way Augsburg play.
NO SHOTS ON TARGET
It's not often that Bayern are kept from having a shot on target this long into a game, especially at home. Up to now, the final pass has been lacking for the home side.
NOT A LOT OF JOY SO FAR
Bayern have had most of the possession so far, but Augsburg's defence has snuffed out all of their attacks thus far. Not quite ticking as you'd expect for the home side.
FIRST SHOT ON TARGET
Augsburg have the first shot on goal of the game as Löwen picks up possession from Niederlechner on the edge of the Bayern box and shoots at goal, but it's easy for Neuer to handle.
The away side are defending well in these early minutes, winning the ball in midfield and always looking to get in behind the Bayern defence with quick balls forward.
LÖWEN ALMOST UP FRONT
In the early going, it looks as if Eduard Löwen is playing almost up front alongisde Florian Niederlechner for Augsburg. Perhaps Martin Schmidt is looking to get a solid defensive player further up the pitch.
EARLY KNOCK FOR KIMMICH
The midfielder will be able to continue, but he's had a slight limp after a challenge with Niederlechner in the opening minutes.
The sun is shining in Munich as we get things underway for our Sunday double-header.
READY TO RUMBLE
Bayern and Augbsurg are lined-up in the tunnel ready to enter the gladiator's arena here in Munich. We're just minutes away from it all kicking-off...
MÜLLER CHASING A BIG RECORD
The Bayern Munich legend needs five more assists to break the Bundesliga's record for assists in a season, currently at 20, held by Kevin de Bruyne. Müller has scored eight goals and provided seven assists in his 10 Bundesliga meetings with Augsburg, so form is on his side in terms of adding to his tally today.
A BIG CHOREO PLANNED
It sounds like the home crowd will be partaking in a big choreographic display at the Allianz Arena today, helping to celebrate the club's 120th birthday. Looking forward to seeing the end result in under 15 minutes time...
SCHMIDT AND HIS MUNICH SECRETS
Martin Schmidt has not lost at the Allianz Arena as a coach since 2015. With Mainz, he won in Munich in 2016, while he's gone unbeaten with Augsburg as well. Can he produce another special performance today at Bayern?
"LUTHE HAS TRAINED WELL FOR WEEKS"
Martin Schmidt says Andreas Luthe has come in today because of an extended period of high quality training from the goalkeeper himself. He gives praise to Koubek, speaking to Sky before the game, and says there are no bad feelings between the pair. "Luthe has earned this chance"
TIGHT AT THE TOP
Playing on a Sunday means that Bayern know exactly what they need to do today. After a win for Dortmund over Gladbach and draw for Leipzig on Saturday, Bayern sit just one point ahead of BVB at the top of the table. Three points will take them to a four-point lead before a huge couple of weeks before Bayern travel to face Dortmund on 4 April.
HAPPY 120, BAYERN!
A reminder that Bayern Munich will be donning a special edition kit today in celebration of the club's 120th birthday which fell on 27 February. No sponsors, no added extras, a classy number which has been worn by all of the club's other teams throughout the weekend. Get your TV on or head onto social media to take a look at the kit itself.
CHANGES FOR AUGSBURG
There's a couple of noticeable moves from Martin Schmidt, with Andreas Luthe replacing Tomas Koubek in goal for this Bavarian derby. Meanwhile, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw has been given the captain's armband ahead of Daniel Baier today. Iago has also come into defence, sending Philipp Max further up the pitch to be part of a five-man midfield.
AS YOU WERE FOR BAYERN
The league leaders are unchanged from their 6-0 defeat of Hoffenheim last time out in the Bundesliga as Joshua Zirkzee leads the attack again. He'll be looking to score for the fourth time in the Bundesliga this season with his second successive start of the campaign.
