FULL-TIME: BAYERN 1-0 ARMINIA

Leroy Sane sends Bayern back above Dortmund. They were made to sweat, but created a stack of chances and might easily have won at a canter. Spare a thought for a spirited Bielefeld, who remain in the bottom two. All eyes now turn to next week's Klassiker in Dortmund.

NO THEY CAN'T

Bayern throw men in front of the ball, and eventually regain possession. It looks like they're going to scrape a win...

TIME ADDED ON

Three minutes still to play at the Allianz Arena. Can Arminia land a sucker-punch?

CH-CH-CH-CHANGES

Like-for-like in the Bayern defence as Süle makes his return in place of Hernandez. Kramer's final throw of the dice is former Dortmund reserve team striker Janni Serra.

HIGH BOOT

Lasme's backing in to Upamecano as the pair challenge for a high ball. He raises a boot in a bid to get the first touch, but only succeeds in catching the Bayern defender in the cheek.

LASME PACE

Bryan Lasme chases a long put. He has the legs on Hernandez and manages to dig out a cross that Neuer has to pounce on at his near post. It'll be interesting to see how the Bielefeld sub fares in a footrace with Davies...
79'

OFF THE BAR!

Gnabry keeps the ball in down by the by-line. The angle's tight and there are men in the middle, but he goes for goal and slaps the crossbar.
78'

COMAN!

Coman's caused Andrade all manner of problems. He gets in behind the Arminia left-back once again, only to see his fierce shot turned away by Ortega at full stretch. That's Andrade's final action - he's one of the Bielefeld changes.

OKUGAWA THE DANGER MAN

Upamecano's slow to react as Okugawa twists and turns in the Bayern box. He shoots wide, before the whistle sounds for offside. Bielefeld haven't given up hope yet!
73'

SANE WITH THE BREAKTHROUGH!

Sane's last action is to break Arminia's stubborn resistance. He collects from Müller outside the box, dead centre, and whips an unstoppable effort past Ortega for Bayern's 102nd Bundesliga goal of the calendar year - a new record!

OKUGAWA!

Okugawa wellies a loose ball past the upright from range. Why not?! The upset could be on...
67'

A WHISKER AWAY

It just will not sit for Bayern as Lewandowski fails to turn in Coman's deflected cross.
66'

KLOS-E!

Klos with a rare sight of Neuer's goal. His glancing header from Schöpf's delivery goes wide, though. He's kicking himself!
65'

ACTION STATIONS

Tolisso heads wide at the far post as the chance count ramps up. Kramer responds by hooking Wimmer, who's worked his socks off, in favour of Robin Hack. Now Bielefeld have a free-kick in a dangerous position...

WAYWARD FINISH

Coman clips a ball over to the left-hand side of the Arminia six-yard box. Sane swings his trusty left boot at it, but doesn't make a full connection and the chance is gone. You'd expect a player of his calibre to have buried that!
57'

MUSIALA ON

Jamal Musiala joins the fray in place of Leon Goretzka. The teen has the creativity to make the difference.

Crucial intervention from Nilsson to put Coman's inviting low cross behind. Lewandowski was lurking.

MÜLLER!

Müller with an improvised finish to Lewy's pass, but Ortega is untroubled. How many chances do Bayern need?
47'

SO CLOSE!

Bayern go within inches of taking the lead. Upamecano starts the move, playing a pass to Müller, before getting it back via Tolisso. The defender slips through Sane, who gets there ahead of Ortega, but sees his effort trickle wide of the upright.

HERE WE GO AGAIN!

A big half awaits. Bayern need a win to regain top spot ahead of Der Klassiker...

HALF-TIME: BAYERN 0-0 ARMINIA

Bayern have created chance after chance, but Ortega's in no mood to be beaten. Can they find a way through in the second half? Stay tuned to find out!

OVER AND OUT

Andrade has a go, with his strike deflecting behind for a corner. Vasiliadis takes on a shot form the edge of the D, but balloons high over Neuer's goal frame. That should be that for the first half...
42'

BIELEFELD BREAKAWAY

Bielefeld have a man over in Klos if Wimmer can find him. He doesn't as Bayern recover to get men behind the ball, and his eventual shot hits teammate Okugawa. If Arminia are to score, you have to think it'll come on the counter...
40'

ANOTHER BAYERN SHOT, ANOTHER ORTEGA SAVE

A routine one at that, with Coman not getting enough behind his strike from outside the Arminia area.

TAME EFFORT

Bayern move the ball with ease across the midfield. Hernandez loops in a cross for Lewandowski, who's caught in two minds. With Müller to his left, he loops a harmless header into Ortega's bread basket.

GETTING CLOSER

Lewandowski heads over from Sane. Bayern keep the pressure on with Davies, who drives at Ortega. Arminia will do really well to go in level at the break, at this rate...

NEUER TO THE RESCUE

Prietl exposes Bayern's high line with a through-ball for Okugawa. The offside flag goes up, but not before Neuer is forced into evasive action at the feet of the Bielefeld man.
25'

WIDE!

Pavard goes direct with a long ball into the Arminia box. Coman works it back to the edge of the box for Tolisso, who's urged to shoot by the Bayern fans. Instead, he squares for Lewandowski, whose goalbound shot is deflected behind off the studs of Brunner.

MÜLLER!

Bielefeld only half clear the ensuing corner. Müller has a sniff of goal, but Ortega is equal to it. A Bayern goal feels inevitable...

COMAN!

Hernandez advances and disguises a wonderful pass into the channel for Sane. He cuts it back, with the red shirts lying in wait. Coman connects, but his effort is deflected over.
19'

DAVIES UP FOR THIS!

Davies is on the rampage again. He scampers away and plays a pass into the area, but Arminia scramble it clear.
16'

DAVIES SOLO EFFORT

Davies slaloms through the Bielefeld defence. He turns Brunner inside-out in the box, before the on-rushing Ortega rides to the visitors' rescue with a brave block.
11'

SANE STINGER!

Arminia don't close down Sane, who winds up from 20 yards. He catches it really well, with Ortega flying to his left once again to bat clear. The ensuing corner eventually makes its way to Coman, who blazes over.
8'

ON THE VOLLEY!

Bayern going through the gears as Lewandowski cushions the ball back to Müller. He connects with an acrobatic volley that Ortega turns away on the stretch.
7'

OFF THE LINE!

Lewandowski slips Coman into the channel. The Frenchman hangs up a cross for Müller, whose looping header is hacked away by Andrade on the Arminia goal-line.
6'

BIELEFELD THE BRAVE

Bielefeld are throwing men forward at the Allianz Arena. Okugawa feeds Klos, who doesn't make a clean connection in the box, and is offside, in any case.
5'

BLOCKED

Sane and Müller exchange passes on the edge of the Arminia area. Müller tries to place one, but an Arminia shirt gets in the way.
3'

DAVIES INTERVENES

Bielefeld win the ball back and play directly towards the Bayern goal. Okugawa's into the box, but Davies slides in at the expense of a corner that comes to nothing.
2:03

WATCH: BAYERN 3-3 ARMINIA

Alphonso Davies spared Bayern's blushes in last season's corresponding fixure, so this is by no means a formality for the record champions...
Kick-off!

RECORD GOAL?

Bayern have scored an astonishing 101 times in 2021, and can set a new Bundesliga record for most calendar year goals today. They haven't drawn a Bundesliga blank since 9 February 2020...

MÜLLER MILESTONE

Thomas Müller makes his 396th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern, drawing level with the great Franz Beckenbauer for league games with the club. It puts him joint sixth on the club’s all-time list of appearances in the Bundesliga since the record champions were first promoted in 1965. Top of the pile is Sepp Maier (473), with a gap then down to Oliver Kahn (429) and Gerd Müller (427). Georg Schwarzenbeck (416) and Klaus Augenthaler (404) can both be caught by Müller this season. The self-appointed Raumdeuter has started every match in 2021/22 and will surpass Schwarzenbeck by one if he keeps that up until the end of the campaign.

NAGELSMANN WARY OF IMPROVING ARMINIA

Julian Nagelsmann doesn't expect Bayern to have an easy time of things, despite the gulf between the clubs in the standings. "Bielefeld are improving," said Nagelsmann. "They have very clear patterns and always good ideas for how to get the opposition to open up spaces. They can be particularly dangerous from balls over the top. They have a good structure and always look to get in behind. They sacrifice a lot physically and in how they play, and defend with real passion."

WATCH: LEWY'S NOSE FOR GOALS AND HEART OF GOLD

Having won the 2020 Best FIFA Player award, Robert Lewandowski is now among the frontrunners to claim world football’s other major indi-vidual prize, the Ballon d’Or. Just days ahead of 29 November’s announcement of the 2021 winner, we get another angle on Bayern München’s multiple record-breaking goal-grabber – the devoted family man, with a huge heart for children.

FIGHTING TO STAY AFLOAT

Bielefeld are second bottom after 12 matches, with nine points on the board and four to make up on the safe house.

BAYERN THE CHASERS

Bayern's shock loss at Augsburg coupled with back-to-back Dortmund wins means the record champions begin the game in second place, two points behind BVB. The sides meet next week in the first Bundesliga Klassiker of the season.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

Julian Nagelsmann welcomes back Niklas Süle, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Josip Stanisic to the bench, after they missing the Champions League win over Kyiv. The only change to the starting line-up is Dayot Upamecano in for Tanguy Nianzou at centre-back. As for Arminia, Frank Kramer makes two changes to the team that beat Stuttgart last weekend. Andres Andrade’s in at left-back for Jacob Laursen, while Alessandro Schöpf is preferred to Florian Krüger in attack.
