We're now into three minutes of added time at the end of this game. Will we find a late winner!?
UNION LEVEL THROUGH INGVARTSEN!
The visitors have been on the back foot all half but have a late, late goal to bring us level here. It's a quality throw-in from Teuchert down the left which meets Andrich's run in behind. He then cuts the ball across goal and Ingvartsen beats Stanisic to the ball in front of goal.
GOAL!1 : 1
Union's first effort on goal in the second half comes from a pair of substitutes as Pohjanaplo heads a cross back to the other side of the Bayern area and Gentner flicks it towards goal, but his effort loops over the crossbar.
The next booking is also for Bayern, with the substitute cautioned for his foul on Prömel.
INTO THE FINAL 10 MINUTES...
The Bundesliga's two longest-serving players are now on the field as Union look for an equaliser. But Neuer has yet to be tested in this second half.

Musiala comes off after potentially winning this one for Bayern, with Nianzou on for just his second Bundesliga appearance.
Fresh legs in attack now for Union with Teuchert and Pohjanpalo coming on.
MAGIC FROM MUSIALA!
It's Jamal Musiala whose twinkle toes have put Bayern ahead, and it's another assist for Müller. A cross from Pavard isn't dealt with and the ball comes to Müller who gets some luck after a touch from Friedrich to find Musiala. The Germany international turns past Knoche with a superb touch before slotting the ball home.
GOAL!1 : 0
Ryerson and Ingvartsen on for Union here who are looking to push on for a potential winner late on.
Pavard is on for Boateng in defence, while there's a debut for 18-year-old Chris Scott as he replaces Dantas.
30 MINUTES TO GO...

Alaba is on for Choupo-Moting here, which should see Müller lead the line and Alaba come into midfield.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
BIG CHANCE FOR KRUSE!
Union break down the right and it's Trimmel who crosses high to the back post. Kruse is alone at the back post and connects with a volley back across goal, but it bounces agonisingly wide of the mark.
KIMMICH RUNNING THE SHOW
Distance run (km)
Joshua Kimmich Grischa Prömel
BOATENG FORCES A SAVE
A corner from Kimmich drops to the back post and Boateng is there to get a shot away at goal. Luthe is equal to it once again for Union.
NOT PLAYING OUT FROM THE BACK
Union are usually a team we see playing the ball out from defence, but today it's been a long-ball game with Bayern pressing high when the Union defence is in possession.
SOLID START AGAIN
Bayern have made a good start to this second half again, as they did in the first. But neither side is making it easy for the other to create clear-cut chances. It's been a defensive battle so far.
The home side get us underway for the second with a change at the break for Bayern. Coman hasn't been able to continue, and Sane is on in his place.
We'll have just one minute of time added on at the end of the first half.
BEST CHANCE SO FAR

Union are leaving such little room for Bayern to work with through the middle, but a pass from Boateng opens them up for a second. Müller is found in the box to the right and his low cross is heading for Choupo-Moting, but Luthe cuts it out.
COMAN CARRYING ON
For now, the winger is carrying on to see if he can continue having taken some treatment.
The French winger is down here and has called to come off. Not good at all for Bayern, and it appeared to be completely inocious. Sane is getting ready to come on.

CHANCES AT BOTH ENDS

1 on target
Union get their first effort on goal and it's a big chance for Bülter. The attack comes down the left and a cross is dinked to the back post by Kruse. It goes over Stanisic and comes to Bülter, but he can only guide the ball straight at Neuer with his close-ranged header.
A quick shot from Musiala having been found in the Union area by Müller, but his shot drags wide across Luthe's goal.
BAYERN ON TOP
The hosts well in control here, with Kimmich dropping in between Boateng and Martinez as Bayern dominate the ball. When they have pushed forward, Union's structured shape hasn't allowed much room to wiggle.
Choupo-Moting exchanges a one-two with Dantas, but Luthe is off his line quickly to dive in and palm the ball away. Müller is onto the loose ball, but his shot is also met by Luthe who turns the ball behind.
SUN-DAY FUN DAY?

FIRST EFFORT ON GOAL!
Sarr is looking confident early on here as he raids forward through midfield before passing into Choupo-Moting. His shot on goal is deflected wide by Knoche, but it's been a good start here for the hosts.
DEFENDING IN NUMBERS
Union on the back foot so far slightly, but are defending well and in numbers. Endo is looking to get involved quickly from the left wing.
BAYERN'S SET UP
It's Sarr at right-back, Stanisic at left-back with Dantas in a more advanced midfield role ahead of Kimmich, and Musiala on the right.
And not just in the sunshine... Sarr does well to combine down the right with Musiala, but his cross goes behind past Luthe and the Union goal. We've gone from snow storms in the Champions League in midweek to bright sunshine here in Munich within a few days.
HERE WE GO!
The ball is rolling in sunny Munich as we get underway!
WHAT'S AT STAKE
An injury-ridden Bayern are seven points clear at the top of the table with seven games to play. Keeping that gap to Leipzig as it is will be Flick's plan for the rest of the season, to help secure a ninth successive league title. For Union, the potential of a place in Europe next season is still very much alive. They're part of a chasing pack which is four points off Leverkusen in the Conference League qualifying spot.
Manuel Neuer (432) and Christian Genter (423) - on the bench for Union are the two highest Bundesliga appearance makers in the league. Gentner has lost 20 of his 25 Bundesliga games against Bayern, with only Richard Golz (21) suffering more defeats against the record champions.
CAN UNION MAKE IT A DOUBLE?
Union picked up their first league point against Bayern the last time the two met - a 1-1 draw on Matchday 11 - and are one of only two teams, alongside Gladbach, to have not been beaten by the league leaders this season.
KRUSE IN FORM
Union's top-scorer Max Kruse has scored four of his 10 league goals across the last five matchdays. Kruse has scored just once, though, in 17 appearances against Bayern.
ALWAYS COUNT ON BAYERN
The champions have scored at least once in each of their last 62 competitive games - a new club record. They last time they failed to score was in the goalless draw with Leipzig on 9 February 2020.

BAYERN TEAM NEWS
Martinez, Sarr and Musiala are among those who could earn rare starts, while Choupo-Moting continues to lead the line in Lewandowski's stead. There are also full Bundesliga debuts for Dantas in midfield and Stanisic in defence.
UNION TEAM NEWS
With Awoniyi, Becker and Ujah all still sidelined, Musa continues in attack alongside Kruse. Urs Fischer is inclined to return to a four-man defence away to Bayern - he used the same system in holding them to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture - with Schlotterbeck making way. Meanwhile, Endo starts on one wing.

WATCH: ANALYSIS: LEWANDOWSKI-LESS BAYERN
STILL IN FINE FORM
Bayern have won each of their past five Bundesliga matches, scoring 17 times in the process at an average of 3.4 goals a game. Flick's side are still unbeaten in all competitions at the Allianz Arena this term (P18, W15, D3).
BAYERN'S INJURY WOES
Flick's side have opened up a seven-point lead at the top of the table, but Lewandowski has been joined in the treatment room by Goretzka, Süle and, latterly, Hernandez. Add in Davies' suspensions and the fact that Bayern have the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, and Flick will be forced to rotate his side to some degree. Martinez and Musiala are among those who could be handed rare starts, while Choupo-Moting will continue to lead the line in Lewandowski's stead.
