WATCH: LEWANDOWSKI DEDICATES HISTORIC GOAL TO HIS MOTHER
WATCH: LEWANDOWSKI: "I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE I'VE DONE IT!"
HE'S DONE IT!!!!!
Lewandowski sets a new record for single-season goals!!!! Gikiewicz can't hold onto Sane's strike, Lewy digs it out, takes it away from the keeper and tucks away his 41st Bundesliga goal of the campaign. What a moment!!!!

Alaba's holding back the tears as he leaves the field of play. What a servant he's been since joining the club at 16!
AUGSBURG STRIKE AGAIN
Hel-lo! Davies misplaces a pass, and Niederlechner is away. He's only got Neuer to beat, and doesn't disappoint. Emotions getting the better of the champions? Suddenly, it's 4-2!
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Manuel Neuer won't claim the outright clean sheet record. He's beaten by a towering Hahn header.
Jerome Boateng is holding back the tears as he makes way. There are high fives and hugs all round, before a very touching embrace between the long-serving defender and coach Hansi Flick. The outgoing Javi Martinez is his replacement. Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala are also on, with Coman and Gnabry withdrawn.
Davies breezes past a handful of Augsburg shirts, before laying the ball off to Gnabry. Lewandowski pulls away at the far post, but Gnabry's caught in two minds and his eventual effort is neither cross nor shot.
A low ball is delivered into the six-yard box. Lewandowski's on to it first, but Suchy slides in to block. A wry smile from the Pole - he might be beginning to feel it's not his day...
OVER FROM LEWANDOWSKI!
A corner comes in from Gnabry. Lewandowski meets it, but sends his head off target!
BETTER FORM AUGSBURG
Augsburg have gone to three at the back since the restart, making it very difficult for Bayern to find Lewandowski. Can he find that historic goal...?
HERE WE GO AGAIN
No changes for Bayern, though we're bound to see Martinez at some point. Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl introduces Raphael Framberger and Marek Suchy in a bid to stop the rot. Pedersen and Caligiuri make way.
A gala performance from the champions. The only thing missing is a Lewandowski goal...
COMAN THE BAVARIAN!
Coman thunders in a fourth Bayern goal from range. Lovely shimmy to open up the shot, followed by a precision finish right into the bottom corner. Despair for the full-stretch Gikiewicz, who's played a blinder between the Augsburg goal-posts.
LEWY OFF CUE!
Lewandowski with the chance for the record, but he steers his header from Coman's inch-perfect cross wide of the far post. The ball just will not go in for the Bayern No.9...
Gikiewicz is at it again, repelling quick-fire efforts from Lewandowski and Alaba. Bayern would be 5-0 or even 6-0 up, but for the Polish custodian!
PICK THAT OUT!
Kimmich adds a third Bayern goal with a rasping drive from fully 25 yards. Gikiewicz didn't move - that's how true the Bayern midfielder struck that one.
Augsburg's No.1 has not read the script as he dives full stretch to push away Alaba's low strike. Lewandowski returns the follow-up with interest, but Gikiewicz recovers the ground to make a quite brilliant goal-line stop.

STIR IT UP!
Gnabry's reached double figures for goals in all five of his seasons in the Bundesliga. The last player to do that was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. There must be something special in his cooking pot...
Daniel Caligiuri steps up, but it's a pretty poor attempt. Too close to Neuer, and not enough power. He didn't even have to dive.
Niederlechner goes down under Hernandez's challenge. The referee initially waves play on, but it's called back. Augsburg have a penalty...
BAYERN DOUBLE THEIR LEAD!
Gikiewicz pulls off a brilliant save to deny Lewandowski. Pinball ensues as Coman strikes the upright and Lewy is foiled by his countryman once more, before Gnabry heads home - despite Lewandowski's best efforts to poke it over the line.
Gnabry slips in Alaba, but the Bayern midfielder can only find the side netting under pressure from the advancing Gikiewicz. What a moment that would have been! He's only scored 33 times in 13 years at Bayern...
MANU THE WALL
Neuer follows suit with a flying save to claw away a Caligiuri header. Superb neck muscles from the Augsburg midfielder - even better reflexes from the world's best goalkeeper. Augsburg are right in this...
Neuer goes long for Lewy, who helps it on to Gnabry. He's through on goal with only Gikiewicz to beat, but the Augsburg stopper spreads himself well and blocks for a corner.
Bayern have now scored at least once in 71 competitive matches on the spin, dating back to their goalless draw with Julian Nagelsmann's RB Leipzig on 9 February 2020. Nagelsmann will succeed Flick in the summer, remember.
Müller wins back possession on the edge of the Augsburg area. It's worked to Coman and then out to Gnabry on the right. He crosses low for Lewandowski, who can't quite turn it home. Coman reacts to the loose ball, but it's Augsburg defender Jeffrey Gouweleeuw with the final touch. Let party commence!
First chance for Lewandowski, who heads a Gnabry cross straight at Gikiewicz. It wouldn't have counted, though - Gnabry was offside.
Marco Richter has never been afraid to shoot. He tries his luck from range, but doesn't catch out Manuel Neuer, who is chasing down the outright record for most Bundesliga clean sheets. The Bayern skipper is currently tied on 204, with Oliver Kahn.
BLACK AND GOLD
We have supporters at the Allianz Arena for the first time in over a year. Dipping covid rates in Munich have allowed 250 supporters to attend today.
Long-serving trainer Hermann Gerland is presented with a commemorative print. The 66-year-old is leaving the club after 25 years. Tiago Dantas, Javi Martinez, David Alaba and Jerome Boateng follow suit, before Hansi Flick takes to the field for a moment to savour. Douglas Costa, who is not present today, is also honoured.
So it's three changes for champions Bayern following their 2-2 draw in Freiburg. Manuel Neuer, Benjamin Pavard and Kingsley Coman return to the side, with Alexander Nübel, Niklas Süle and Leroy Sane dropping to the bench. Augsburg show four changes to the side that secured top-flight safety with victory over Werder Bremen, meanwhile. Mads Pedersen, Daniel Caligiuri, Carlos Gruezo and Laszlo Benes replace Iago, Ruben Vargas, Jan Moravek and Rani Khedira.
CAN LEWY DO IT?
END OF AN ERA
It's also Hansi Flick's swan song as Bayern coach. The 56-year-old takes charge of Bayern for the 86th time in all competitions. His record reads: W69, D8, L8 and seven trophies won. What an 18 months it's been!
FAREWELL TO THREE LEGENDS
David Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez will play their final games for Bayern today. The trio are among the five players to have won the treble twice with the Bavarian giants, alongside Thomas Müller and Manuel Neuer. Alaba and Boateng start - expect Martinez to join the action mid-contest.
ONE MORE FOR THE RECORD!
Robert Lewandowski has scored 40 times with one game of the 2020/21 season to go. Will the Bayern Munich striker break Gerd Müller's 49-year-old record? Considering he has managed to score on average every 58 minutes this term, that appears to be well within his grasp, especially as the striker has 20 goals in 16 appearances against Augsburg...
