WATCH: CHOUPO-MOTING: "I'M HAPPY TO BE BACK AND TO HAVE SCORED"
WATCH: GNABRY: "I'M HAPPY JAMAL MUSIALA CHOSE TO PLAY FOR GERMANY"
Painful for Cologne. Goretzka asks the question with a peach of a ball towards the back post. The visiting defence stands still, allowing the unmarked Gnabry to head home from close range.
That's the three points in the bag for Bayern. Sane feeds Hernandez on the left. He plays it first-time into the danger zone - Lewandowski can't get there, but Gnabry does.
MUCH TIGHTER SECOND HALF
Leon Goretzka shows why he never skips leg day with a thunderous half-volley from 18 yards that has Horn at full stretch. Very good save.
OFF THE POST!
Yikes! Manuel Neuer comes a long way out of his box. He wins the ball, but is dispossessed by Drexler. His shot at the unguarded net hits the post, and a big, big chance is gone!
Lucas Hernandez is on at left-back for Davies. Kid Canada's played a string of games from the start of late, so nothing out of the ordinary about that one.
Cologne have given a strong account of themselves this second half, but it's going to take a gargantuan effort to get something from the game. Can Drexler and Meyer deliver?
LEWY AT THE DOUBLE!
Lewandowski scores AGAIN to give Bayern breathing space. Müller's first meaningful touch is a piercing ball straight the middle of the Cologne defence. Lewandowski collects and applies the finishing touch, despite the best efforts of Timo Horn.
Musiala and Choupo-Moting make way. On come Gnabry and Müller, at a time when Cologne are finding joy in the Bayern half...
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
WIDE FROM KIMMICH
Bayern play keep-ball, before Kimmich whips one wide from 20 yards. Plenty of dip on that, but Horn probably had it covered.
MAN FOR THE BIG STAGE
Skhiri scored twice in Dortmund in November - now he's got one in Munich. That's four for the season for the Cologne midfielder, who has given his side every hope. The last time they won in Munich - in February 2011 - they trailed 2-0 at the break...
Cologne pull one back! The Bayern defence stands still as Duda clips a ball to Skhiri on the edge of the box. Boateng and Alaba get in a bit of a muddle, Davies doesn't commit to his challenge, and Skhiri chips a superb finish over the advancing Neuer. Suddenly, we have a game on our hands...
A possible change in system as Jannes Horn replaces defender Rafael Czichos, who was on a booking. Emmanuel Dennis is also withdrawn, with 18-year-old Jan Thielmann on in his stead.
Lewandowski with an obligatory goal for 2-0! After Dennis loses possession, Lewy finds Goretzka with a cute back-heel before continuing his run. Goretzka slips the ball through the legs of Czichos and feeds Bayern's imperious No.9, who makes no mistake with his finish. That's 27 goals in 22 Bundesliga matches for the Pole. Gerd Müller's 40-goal season record is in sight...
THE WAIT IS OVER
That was Choupo-Moting's first Bundesliga goal for Bayern, and his first in the German top flight for 1553 days dating back to 27 November 2016. He's now scored for all five of the Bundesliga clubs he's represented: Hamburg, Nuremberg, Mainz, Schalke and the record champions.

So, so close to a 27th Bundesliga goal of the season for Lewandowski. Sane plays a clever disguised pass into the path of Süle. He lifts a fine ball onto the head of Lewandowski, who powers a header from an awkward angle narrowly wide. Horn was not stopping that. Great effort!
Alaba can have no real complaints as he brings down Duda, who was threatening to break clear. Cologne always looking to exploit that high line...
QUITE THE SPREAD
EMCM is Bayern's 15th different Bundesliga goalscorer this season. That puts them level with second-placed Leipzig, in that regard.
A close shave for Cologne as Davies chases down a seemingly lost cause and finds Lewandowski. He swivels this way and that, but is eventually crowded out. Bayern come again through Sane, who finds Goretzka. He hangs up a superb cross towards the near-post - Choupo-Moting is first to it, and can't miss from two yards out. Lovely, lovely goal.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Not far away at all from roaming right-back Süle. He gets his sizeable frame behind the ball, rattling the stanchion from a good 25 yards, with Horn beaten.
POWER OF THE PUNCH
Cologne win another corner that's floated in by Rexhbecaj. Neuer's first to it, though, punching clear. Bayern have conceded 12 goals from corners this season...
DAVIES THE ROCK
The break is on for Cologne. If Özcan gets round Davies, he's in - but that's one big 'if'. The Canadian calmly regains possession, spins one way and back the other and passes to a man. Supremely confident defending.
Choupo-Moting's left-wing cross is only half cleared. Sane takes on the loose ball, but his shot lacks the power to seriously trouble Timo Horn in the Cologne goal.
Ismail Jakobs uses his pace to get in behind the Bayern defence, but his attempted cross goes behind for a corner off Niklas Süle. It comes to nothing - but that was encouraging from the unfancied visitors.
Bayern are head-to-toe in red. Cologne line up in their change burger relish number: a bright mustard yellow, topped with a slice of red tomato and a green lettuce leaf.
WINLESS IN TWO
That goes for both Bayern and Cologne in Bundesliga fare. The record champions drew 3-3 with Bielefeld, before losing 2-1 in Frankfurt. Cologne also lost in Frankfurt, before falling to a single Sasa Kalajdzic goal against Stuttgart on Matchday 22.
Bayern haven't lost any of their last 20 Bundesliga home games, collecting 52 of a possible 60 points at the Allianz Arena in that time.
COLOGNE 1-2 BAYERN - HIGHLIGHTS
Cologne have picked up just one point from their last 13 Bundesliga meetings with Bayern. The Billy Goats have waited longer for a win against the record champions than against any other team...
GERMANY'S GOT TALENT
It's been quite the week for Jamal Musiala. After becoming Bayern's youngest Champions League goalscorer, the Anglo-German teen broke England hearts by pledging his allegiance to the Germany senior international team. He turned 18 on Friday - will he be celebrating in style today?
MORE ON THAT BAYERN TEAM
With the exception of the benched Kingsley Coman, it's the same team that won 4-1 at Lazio on Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League last 16. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting returns in attacking midfield, while Thomas Müller and Serge Gnabry are fit enough for the bench.
MORE ON THAT COLOGNE TEAM
Markus Gisdol makes one change to the team that lost 1-0 to VfB Stuttgart last weekend, with Salih Özcan starting in midfield at the expense of Munich-born Kingsley Ehizibue.
