WATCH: TOPPMÖLLER: "THOMAS MÜLLER IS SO IMPORTANT"
WATCH: SANE: "WE WANTED TO SHOW A REACTION FOR THE FANS"
FULL-TIME: UNION 2-5 BAYERN
Fantastic entertainment, but Bayern's superior firepower told in the end. They stay top, ahead of Dortmund.
Union's tired legs on show as Upamecano is allowed to run with the ball at his feet from inside the Bayern half. He reaches the edge of the Union area and plays a pass to his left, where Müller arrows a fine effort into the top corner. Bayern now lead 5-2!
FINAL THROW OF THE DICE
Urs Fischer uses up his last remaining substitutes. Becker's worked his socks off, and wasn't having as much joy up against Bayern's fresh defensive legs.
Nagelsmann's assistant, Dino Toppmöller, rings the changes. The fact defenders Pavard and Upamecano are among them, tells you all you need to know about the threat Union still pose to the leaders.
UNION HIT BACK AGAIN!
Union are not giving up without a fight! Behrens hares away up the left and cuts a ball back for fellow sub Julian Ryerson to stroke home ahead of Davies. They couldn't, could they...?
Awoniyi is one of three Union players to make way, which is something of a surprise. Then again, Kevin Behrens was on target in the DFB Cup in midweek.
Sane makes way following another impressive shift. He was playing more central and closer to Lewy - that's one to watch, for sure. Jamal Musiala, 18, is on.
WHAT A HIT!
Bayern knock the stuffing out of Union as Coman drives into the box and smacks an unstoppable effort high past Luthe as his near-post. So much power in that, just when Union were looking more and more like scoring.
Bayern can't live with Awoniyi and Becker. The former sends the latter in on goal. Stainisic can't keep up, and Neuer has to dive low to his right to push the shot away. Gießelmann was unmarked in the middle, if Becker had looked up!
Haraguchi has a pop from the left hand side, but it's a routine diving save for Neuer to make. Very good spell for Union, this...
Frenetic stuff in the capital. Sane attacks at one end, before Union go straight up the other. Becker gets away from Stanisic and crosses towards Awoniyi, who's inches away from applying the telling touch in front of Neuer's goal.
HALF-TIME: UNION 1-3 BAYERN
What a first half in Berlin! Bayern lead, but Union are not out of it yet!
Bayern are suddenly rocking as Union get in behind once again. Awoniyi's involved, Becker puts it past Neuer - but the referee rules it out for offside.
UNION HIT BACK!
Hel-lo! Haraguchi rolls Tolisso and pings an inviting ball across the face of the six-yard box. Stanisic can't get it clear, and Gießelmann slaps an effort in off Neuer's near-post.
TALE OF THE TAPE
Normal service resumed for Bayern. Moments after Luthe denies Sane following an audacious piece of control and over-the-shoulder pass from Lewandowski, the record champions add a third. Coman's right-wing cross is helped on by Müller. The touch takes the ball away from Luthe, allowing Sane to turn home into the empty net in front of the goal line. No moping after that heavy Gladbach loss - no moping whatsoever.
The record champions turn defence into attack as a Union corner comes to nothing. Sane's through with Luthe to beat, but the keeper makes himself big and the shot can only find the side netting. Bayern moved like greased lightning, there.
Niklas Süle concedes a free-kick right on the edge of the Bayern area. It's perfect for the right foot of Trimmel, but his in-swinger doesn't clear the front post.

LEWANDOWSKI STRIKES AGAIN!
Lovely goal to extend Bayern's lead. Kimmich touches a free-kick on the edge of the area to Müller - he slows it down for Lewandowski, who sidefoots out of Luthe's reach. Straight off the training ground - too quick for Union. Bayern are 2-0 up via a pair of deadballs.
Davies continues to find joy in the attacking wide areas. He crosses for Coman, who doesn't quite catch it right on the volley. Union are up aganst it...
Lewandowski fires home from the spot. Luthe moves first, hoodwinked by Lewy's stuttering run, and the Bayern man rolls the ball the other way. That's his 11th Bundesliga goal in 10 games this season.
Davies creates space and cuts a ball back for Sane. He smashes it first time with his right foot, his effort catching the stray elbow of Paul Jaeckel. Good spot by the referee - penalty!
The first chance goes the way of Bayern. Leroy Sane dribbles goalwards, but can't direct his fierce effort on Luthe's goal.
Bayern with plenty of the ball, but a mistake from Kimmich allows Union a chance to break. It's shifted up to Awoniyi, but he's crowded out on the edge of the area. Expect to see Union prey on those kinds of errors...
Bayern suffered their heaviest defeat since 1978 in midweek, losing 5-0 to Gladbach in the DFB Cup. Union will be very wary of a backlash...
The Virtual Bundesliga season is about to begin!
AWONIYI IN FORM
Taiwo Awoniyi's taken centre stage with seven goals in nine Bundesliga appearances, including four across his last three. The former Liverpool striker has in fact found the net in all but three top-flight assignments for a Union side that's only lost once this term and with a four-game unbeaten run to uphold. Awoniyi was also on target in the DFB Cup in midweek, scoring in extra-time before Kevin Behrens put away his second of the contest to seal Die Eisernen's progress to the last 16 against Waldhof Mannheim.
UNION ARE HERE!
