+ 1

ALL OVER

It's another three points for Bayern, who consolidate top spot with a comfortable win over Wolfsburg. The Wolves could have had a goal or two, with Weghorst spurning a couple of opportunities in the first half, but on the overall balance of play, Julian Nagelsmann's side were deserved winners.

LEWANDOWSKI GETS HIS GOAL!

Upamecano floats a ball over the Wolfsburg defence to Musiala, who immediately heads it into the middle. Lewandowski is lurking and volleys in his 19th Bundesliga goal of the season.

TRIPLE CHANGE

Bayern aren't taking their foot off the gas and their lead doesn't look in any danger, so Nagelsmann brings on some fresh legs. Nianzou, Sarr and Richards take to the field for Hernandez, Gnabry and Davies.

THE PAVARD SPECIAL - ALMOST

A corner from the left bounces to Pavard, who's about 10 yards outside the Wolfsburg area. He lines up a slice-across-the-ball shot in the manner of his Goal of the Tournament winner at the 2018 World Cup with France, but although he catches it well, the ball is always heading over the bar.

LEWANDOWSKI DENIED!

Gnabry flicks Pavard's cross into the box, where Lewandowski is arriving. His first-time volley is going in, but Casteels produces an outstanding reflex save to keep it out!

UPAMECANO OPENS HIS ACCOUNT

The 23-year-old's goal was his first in Bayern colours, following his summer move from RB Leipzig. He also has four Bundesliga assists this season, making him one of the league's most dangerous defenders in the final third.
66'

CHANCE FOR LEWANDOWSKI!

Bayern carve open the Wolfsburg defence once again with some quick, incisive passing. Gnabry crosses low from the right to Lewandowski at the back post, but the striker doesn't catch it properly on his left foot and fires over.

EXPECTED GOALS

information
xGoals
The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
According to the expected goals metric, Wolfsburg should have 1.5 goals by now, in light of the quality of chances they've created. Bayern, by contrast, are ahead of the curve...

BORNAUW ALMOST IN

Waldschmidt floats a free-kick from the right into the Bayern box. It drifts all the way through to the back post, where Bornauw is arriving, but he can't quite stretch enough to prod it in and Neuer comes out to collect.
59'

BEAUTIFUL FROM SANE!

That's surely game, set and match now for Bayern. The Reds attack down the right and Gnabry touches the ball into Sane's path. He cuts onto his left foot and curls a sumptuous shot into the far corner from the edge of the area, very much á la Arjen Robben.

DOUBLE CHANCE FOR BAYERN

Lewandowski nutmegs Bornauw as he threads the ball into Musiala's path. The teenager shoots from just inside the box but it's straight at Casteels, with Sane firing over on the rebound.
52'

DAVIES MAKING MISCHIEF

Davies dribbles past two Wolfsburg defenders on the Bayern left, before getting to the byline and trying to cut the ball back to the unmarked Müller. A Wolfsburg toe is in the way though, and the visitors survive - just.
51'

UPHILL BATTLE FOR WOLFSBURG

The Wolves haven’t won any of the last 48 Bundesliga games in which they’ve been behind at the break, drawing 10 and losing 38. The last time they overturned a half-time deficit to win was a 2-1 triumph over Hoffenheim in February 2017.
48'

TRICKY FOR SANE

Sane lines up a volley at the back post to connect with a high Müller cross from the right. It's a difficult one to take as the ball is dropping from a great height, and Sane's shot bounces into the ground before going wide of the target.
47'

BROOKS HEADS OVER

Arnold delivers a deep free-kick from the left into the Bayern penalty area. It comes to Brooks, who stoops to head it, but he can't get any direction on his effort and it loops high over the frame of the goal.
46'

OFF AGAIN

Wolfsburg get the ball rolling in the second half. No changes from either side at the break.
Kick-off!
camera-photo

DESERVED LEAD

Bayern have dominated in terms of possession and territory, with Müller's early goal giving them a slender advantage at the break. Wolfsburg will take heart from the chances they've created though, as Weghorst has had several glimpses of Neuer's goal, giving them cause for optimism going into the second 45 minutes.
Half-time
44'

UPAMECANO FIRES OVER

Bayern break forward with Davies and Lewandowski, but Bornauw does very well to keep tight to the latter and keep forcing him backwards. Eventually the ball is worked to Upamecano, around 25 yards out and with a crowded box in front of him, and the Frenchman shoots at goal but it's always rising and whizzes over the top.
42'

WEGHORST AGAIN

Arnold picks out Weghorst with a lovely cross from the left. It's a tricky one to take, but the Dutchman manages to flick it goalwards with the outside of his right foot. It's on target, but lacks the requisite power to beat Neuer.
41'

BAYERN PROBING

The Reds have been more dangerous in front of goal, although Wolfsburg have arguably had the better chances with those two for Weghorst.

LACROIX TIDIES UP

Bayern break forward at pace as Müller plays it to Sane, who releases Lewandowski down the left. He tries to return the pass as the Germany international charges into the box, but Lacroix reads the danger and manages to clear.
33'

NEXT CHANCE FOR WEGHORST!

Gerhardt curls a beautiful cross into the Bayern box from the left. It's the kind of opportunity Weghorst usually buries with his eyes closed, but this time he doesn't make a clean connection and fires wide. He could, and probably should, have two goals already this half.

Sane gets to the byline on the left and stands up a cross to the back post. Müller heads it back into the middle for Lewandowski, but he can't get enough power on his header to beat Casteels.

RECORD IN SIGHT

Bayern have now scored in 64 consecutive Bundesliga games, since their goalless draw with RB Leipzig in February 2020. That leaves them just one match away from equalling the league record for goals scored in successive matches.

WOLFSBURG HOLDING THEIR OWN

Far from letting their heads hang after going behind, the visitors are trying to battle their way back into the game. They're giving as good as they're getting in what has become an intense midfield battle in the last few minutes.

MILESTONE EVENING FOR MÜLLER

Thomas Müller now has 222 competitive goals for Bayern, putting him third on the club's all-time scorers list after namesake Gerd (552) and Lewandowski (323). It's the Germany international's 134th Bundesliga goal, crowning his 400th top-flight appearance. Three of his five league goals this term have put Bayern 1-0 up.
11'

OVER FROM LEWY

This is very similar to Bayern's opener as Sane fires a powerful shot from outside the box. Casteels blocks it, but it falls straight to Lewandowski. It's a tricky one to take as the ball bounces high and he's under pressure from a defender, and the striker ends up lifting his effort over the crossbar.
9'

WEGHORST IS IN!

A glorious chance for Wolfsburg to equalise instantly as Weghorst wriggles free inside the Bayern box. He just has Neuer to beat and there's a big space to aim for at the back post, but the Dutchman fails to make a clean connection with his shot and Neuer saves. Those are the kind of chances you have to take against Bayern, as you don't get many do-overs...
7'

BAYERN LEAD!

Wolfsburg struggle to clear a free-kick from Sane and the ball is worked to Gnabry, just outside the penalty area. He unleashes a vicious shot that Casteels does well to save, but he can only parry it into the path of Müller, who finishes from close range on the rebound.

FIRST GLIMPSE FOR LEWY

The Bayern No.9 receives the ball in the left-hand side of the Wolfsburg box and executes a nice turn to escape the clutches of two defenders. It opens up for him to shoot towards the back post but he can't quite get a shot away before a Wolfsburg toe pokes the ball clear.
4'

LEWANDOWSKI TO SCORE?

The 33-year-old has found the net in 10 of his last 11 Bundesliga meetings with Wolfsburg, having hit 24 goals in 24 games against the Wolves. The fact he's also chasing Gerd Müller's 42-goal calendar year record tonight will give him extra motivation...

HERE WE GO!

Matchday 17 is under way in Munich!
Kick-off!

FORM - BAYERN

While Wolfsburg have lost their last six, Bayern have won their last six in all competitions, following their surprise defeat in Augsburg on 19 November. They've scored 16 goals in that period, so are firing on all cylinders ahead of this one.

FORM - WOLFSBURG

The Allianz Arena is arguably the last place Wolfsburg would want to come to tonight given that they're on a six-game losing streak in all competitions. The team's last win was a 1-0 triumph at home to Augsburg on 6 November, while they've lost nine of the last 10 Bundesliga meetings with Bayern. One glimmer of hope is that the Wolves have been decent on the road this season, prior to their present blip at any rate, taking 10 points from a possible 21 (W3 D1 L3).

INJURY HIT

Both teams have somewhat depleted squads here, with each naming just six outfield players on the bench. Choupo-Moting (match fitness), Coman (thigh), Goretzka (foot), Kimmich (lungs), Stanisic (thigh), Süle (back) and Tolisso (muscular) all miss out for Bayern, while Mehmedi (muscular), Otavio (knee), Philipp (muscular), Roussillon (suspended), Schlager (knee) and William (knee) are absent for the Wolves.

TEAM NEWS - WOLFSBURG

Florian Kohfeldt has made four changes to his team following the last-gasp defeat by Cologne during the week. John Brooks is back in the team and the expense of Jerome Roussillon, which could mean the visitors are going with a three-man defence. Elsewhere, Yannick Gerhardt, Renato Steffen and Luca Waldschmidt replace Felix Nmecha, Dodi Lukebakio and the injured Lukas Nmecha.

TEAM NEWS - BAYERN

Julian Nagelsmann makes two changes to his side following the victory in Stuttgart on Tuesday, with Leroy Sane starting in place of the injured Kingsley Coman, while Dayot Upamecano comes in for Niklas Süle, who is sidelined with a back complaint.
