CONSOLATION GOAL

Neuer's fuming. He denies Rashica in a one-on-one, but Füllkrug tucks in the follow-up. Boy, did he want that clean sheet!

LEWANDOWSKI RECORDS

No player has scored so many goals as Lewandowski's 32 after 25 Bundesliga matches. Gerd Müller held the previous record at 29 - and it's surely only a matter of time before his 40-goal best-mark - that has stood for 49 years - is beaten.

LEWANDOWSKI GETS HIS GOAL!

Pavelenka pulls off a spectacular diving save to keep out another Lewandowski header, but can't do a thing about the ensuing corner. Goretzka helps on Kimmich's delivery, it cannons off a Werder man and into the path of Lewandowski who has the entire goal to aim for from close range. That's his 268th in the Bundesliga, taking him level second with Klaus Fischer in the all-time scoring charts.

TREBLE CHANGE

Positive from Florian Kohfeldt. Sargent's fed on scraps and been far too isolated. Can the fresh legs make a difference?

LEWANDOWSKI DENIED!

Still no goal for Lewandowski. Pavlenka keeps out his first effort from Müller's cross - the upright thwarts him on the follow-up. Not his day so far...
55'

POST!

Bremen have done a fine job of keeping Lewandowski quiet today, but the Bayern striker loses his marker here. He's first to a cross into the box, but his header comes back off the woodwork before nestling into Pavlenka's grateful arms.
53'

SARGENT INVOLVED

Sargent has his back to goal in the Bremen half. He lays the ball off and continues his run. The eventual pass is a bit heavy from Schmid, though, and slows the move down. Davies is back, too, but Sargent works the ball inside and heads for the box. The ball comes in to his feet, but it's cut out amidst half-hearted shouts for a penalty for a foul on the American by Boateng. Nothing doing.

AS YOU WERE

No changes at half-time - in both senses. Bayern begin on the offensive, but Coman's threaded pass goes straight through Pavlenka.
Kick-off!

HALF-TIME: BREMEN 0-2 BAYERN

43'

AUGUSTINSSON OUTLET

Better from Bremen as Augustinsson swings a ball towards the near-post. Gebre Selassie is arriving from deep, but Boateng heads it clear. The left-hand side continues to look like Werder's best route back into this...
39'

MAN IN FORM

Gnabry has scored four goals across his last five Bundesliga appearances - as many in his previous 16.
36'

BAYERN STRIKE AGAIN!

Moments after Gnabry side-foots against the post, the ex-Bremen man fires home to cap a superb team move. Kimmich was involved from deep, but Müller played the final pass - his 13th assist of the campaign - to unlock the Werder defence. This could get ugly...

ACCESS DENIED!

Gnabry and Müller combine to great effect, but the latter's goal-bound strike is charged down by a green-and-white shirt. Bayern are motoring now...
25'

CHANCES!

Bayern opportunities coming thick and fast as Müller fires wide on his weaker left foot. The league leaders come again through Lewandowski, who pulls out wide and hangs up a cross for Gnabry. Over! He knows he should have at least landed his header on target.
24'

BAYERN LEAD!

It's been coming. Not long after Kimmich and Gnabry try their luck from range, Bayern forge ahead. Müller flicks on Kimmich's corner, and Goretzka rises to stick away a towering header.

CLOSE!

Very nearly the commentator's curse as Kimmich slips Davies in behind Gebre Selassie. The Canadian pings a teasing ball across the six-yard box, but nobody gambles. Any touch on that would have put Pavlenka in serious trouble.

NOTHING BETWEEN THE SIDES

Bremen will be happy with this so far. They're matching Bayern across the pitch in the early stages.

OVER FORM GNABRY!

Bayern respond in kind as Müller feeds Gnabry on the edge of the box. He smashes goalwards, but it sails over with Pavlenka at full stretch. The Germany international scored 11 goals in 27 competitive appearances for Werder in 2016/17.
6'

FIRST ATTEMPT

Encouraging stuff from Bremen as Augustinsson bombs up the left, before cutting inside of Pavard and firing straight at Neuer. The first shot on goal goes the way of Werder...

EYES ON LEWY

Pavard advances and whips a ball into the danger zone, where Groß is on hand to shovel clear. Kimmich tries a reverse-pass to Lewandowski, but overcooks it and Pavlenka can gather.
1'

MAN DOWN!

And it's Lewandowski. He collided with Toprak's stray arm when chasing down a ball. He's soon on his feet, though - nothing in that.
1'

AWAY WE GO!

The ball's rolling at the Weser-Stadion. Bayern are unbeaten in their last 24 Bundesliga games with Werder, dating back to a 5-2 home defeat in September 2009. They’ve won 21 of them, including their last 11 on Bremen soil.
Kick-off!

BREMEN'S SARGENT MAJOR

Josh Sargent is enjoying a purple patch of his own with three goals in as many league games. The Bremen forward scored the winner against Frankfurt, opened the scoring in a 1-1 draw with Cologne and broke the deadlock against Bielefeld. Five league goals and seven in all competitions for the campaign marks a career-best return for the US striker, who only turned 21 last month.

WATCH: BIELEFELD 0-2 BREMEN - HIGHLIGHTS

HISTORY IN THE MAKING

Lewandowski scored twice against Dortmund last time out to take his 2020/21 tally to 31 Bundesliga goals. He needs nine to equal Gerd Müller's single-season record set way back in 1971/72 - and has 10 matches to do it. The Bayern No.9 is averaging 1.4 goals per Bundesliga game this term, has scored at least once in 13 of his last 14 league appearances, and has helped himself to 19 goals in 20 career meetings with Bremen.

WATCH: THE RACE TO 40 GOALS

LEWY GOING SECOND

Robert Lewandowski can draw level with - or knowing him, surpass - Schalke legend Klaus Fisher in the all-time Bundesliga scoring charts today. The Pole has struck 267 times in his 344 appearances to date. Fischer produced 268 goals in 535 games. Only Gerd Müller has scored more with 365 goals.

MORE ON THAT BREMEN TEAM

Florian Kohfeldt shuffles his pack following the midweek win over Bielefeld. Centre-back Christian Groß, left-back Ludwig Augustinsson and midfielder Kevin Möhwald come in; Milos Veljkovic, Felix Agu and Leonardo Bittencourt make way.

MORE ON THAT BAYERN TEAM

So, Hansi Flick makes three changes to the side that beat Dortmund 4-2 in Der Klassiker last weekend. Benjamin Pavard is preferred at right-back to Niklas Süle, while compatriot Lucas Hernandez replaces the injured David Alaba as the left-sided central defender. Leroy Sane has been one of Bayern's standout players in recent weeks, but drops to the bench in favour of ex-Werder man Serge Gnabry.
