WATCH: LEWANDOWSKI: "WE PLAYED VERY WELL!
Jóan Símun Edmundsson
LATE DOUBLE CHANGE
Choupo-Moting is on for his Bundesliga debut for Bayern, replacing Lewandowski. While Musiala is also on in place of Coman.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Bayern are down to 10 men but the home side haven't been able to make the most of their advantage yet. Bayern's defence - despite being a man down - is still standing firm, and they are still controlling the ball.
Nathan de Medina
TOLISSO SENT OFF
The Frenchman has been shown a red card after an attempted tackle on Fabian Klos in behind the Bayern defence.

BIG CHANCE FOR DOAN!
Schipplock is straight into the game as he brings down a throw-in and plays Doan the ball on the run. He skips past a defender on the edge of the Bayern box and fires at goal, but misses the target from 18 yards out.
NOT OFTEN BAYERN ARE OUTRUN

COSTA ON FOR SECOND DEBUT
The Brazilian winger comes on to make his second debut for Bayern, having signed on deadline day from Juventus.
This game is great fun in the second with both sides going hell for leather to try and add to the scoreline. Bielefeld are certainly not giving up on this game.
COMAN GOES CLOSE
Gnabry does fantastically on the right, holding up the play and beating Lucoqui to cross to the back post with his left foot. Coman meets the cross with his run, but fires wide on the volley.
DOAN PULLS ONE BACK!
Superb from the PSV-loan star as the ball is cleared forward for Klos to chase onto. He has Pavard and Alaba around him, but finds Doan to his right who dribbles beyond Pavard and fires a low shot across goal. It beats Neuer and nestles beautifully inside the far post. One back for the home side!
GOAL!1 : 4
17 goals after four matches is a new record for Bayern at the start of a Bundesliga season. That's 17 so far, as well, with over 30 minutes still to play here.
WHAT A GOAL!
Lewandowski turns provider for Müller with an outstanding cross from deep into the box which Müller meets with top-poke at goal to send the ball beyond Ortega and into the back of the net.
GOAL!0 : 4
LEWANDOWSKI OFF THE BAR!
Ortega's pass out from the back goes straight to Müller and he gives Lewandowski the ball in the box, but his shot bounces off the crossbar and is then cleared off the line.
CLOSE FOR GEBAUER
A tidy through ball sends Gebauer in behind the Bayern defence and he reaches the ball, but Neuer makes a solid save.
The second half is underway with no changes to either side.
TWO FOR LEWY!
The Bayern star is in fine form tonight as Bayern break forward after winning the possession back in Bielefeld's half. Müller races towards the penalty area and turns back before slotting Lewandowski the ball in space. He turns and shoots, with a deflection taking the ball beyond Ortega's reach to end the first half with a third Bayern goal.
GOAL!0 : 3
APPROACHING THE BREAK
Bayern still on top here and not letting up on their hosts before the break. Just over 60 percent of the ball is probably an average amount for Bayern, but they're keeping the ball camped in the Bielefeld half as well. Making the work even harder for the home side.
CHANCES GALORE SO FAR!
1 off target
2 on target
1 off target
7 on target
WHAT A HIT FROM TOLISSO!
The Frenchman - who is good for a long-range goal liked he scored at Freiburg two seasons ago - smashes a shot at goal from 30 yards, forcing a great save from Ortega to his right.
DOAN HAS A GO
A touch of space opens up for the Japan international on the right flank and he goes for goal from range. Neuer is down well to save at his near post, but a good few minutes there for the hosts.
KLOS SO CLOSE!
The first major chance of the game for the home side as Klos battles with Alaba to get onto the end of a through ball into the Bayern box and Klos wins. The Bielefeld captain collects possession just in front of Neuer, and in the end his shot is blocked away by the Bayern No.1 in a tight space.
Lewandowski so close to a second after a delicious cross from the left and Hernandez met him in the box. His header his a powerful one, but it's matched superbly by Ortega to parry the ball away.
LEWANDOWSKI MAKES IT TWO!
Superb finish from the Pole, who collects Goretzka's pass from the left side of Bielefeld's box at the edge of the box and smashes the ball home from 18 yards, while stepping back. Outrageous technique from Bayern's No.9, and unstoppable for Ortega in the Bielefeld goal.
GOAL!0 : 2

ALMOST A SECOND FOR MÜLLER
Bayern work space once again down the left with Hernandez found. His cross goes all the way through to the back post this time and Müller catches it on the half-volley. Ortega is across goal to parry it away for a corner, this time.
DICTATING THE PLAY
TOLISSO ON TARGET
Bayern work space down the left and a dinked cross into the Bielefeld box from Hernandez is met by Tolisso, but his header bounces safely into the hands of Ortega.
No rust on show from the defending champions in these opening minutes here after the international break. Slick passing and movement off the ball is keeping them in control so far. Lewandowski and Müller moving all over the pitch, proving near-impossible for the Bielefeld defence to track.
MÜLLER OPENS THE SCORING!
Lovely, simple play from Bayern to open the scoring - with a bit of luck in between too. Süle's pass forward is flicked around the corner by Lewandowski to Müller and he's in behind the home defence. He looks to pass to Coman but Pieper is in between. However his block only sends the ball back to Müller, and he duly slots it into the empty net.
GOAL!0 : 1
SET UP FOR THE HOME SIDE
It's a 4-2-3-1 in possession for the hosts, who then drop into a 5-3-2 when Bayern are in possession in their half. So far, so good.
Bayern enjoying most of the early possession but Bielefeld show what they are capable of on the counter as Klos finds Doan in space on the right. He beats Süle, but his shot is half-blocked on the way through to Neuer.
The ball is rolling in Bielefeld for Bayern's first visit to this part of Germany in the Bundesliga since 2009.
OUTSTANDING ATTACK VS. STALWART DEFENCE
Thirteen goals scored after three matches is a new club record for Bayern. Today, however, they come up against one of the Bundesliga's strongest defences through three games of the campaign, with Bielefeld conceding just twice.
BAYERN AND LEWY ON THE PROWL
The record champions have only lost one of their last 43 Bundesliga matches against promoted clubs (W40, D2). Even that was on the final day of 2017/18 to VfB Stuttgart, with the title already sewn up. Lewandowski, meanwhile, has scored against 17 of the Bundesliga's 18 current clubs. Only Bielefeld - who he has never faced - are missing from the list.
DEFENDING THEIR HOME
Bielefeld last lost a competitive match on home soil on 20 October 2019 - to Schalke in the DFB Cup second round.
