BAYERN GO SIX CLEAR

Another barnstorming performance from Bayern and their talismanic striker Lewandowski. He put them in front before Tolisso's screamer made it 2-0 at half-time. Lewandowski added two more in the second half to complete his hat-trick and bring him to 300 career goals in the German top flight. The visitors go six points clear of Dormtund again thanks to an excellent performance.

300 UP!

That's a whopping 300 Bundesliga career goals for Lewandowski. Former Bayern star Gerd Müller - the Bundesliga's all-time record goalscorer with 365 - is the only other player to have reached that milestone.

LEWANDOWSKI HAT-TRICK!

Bayern go from back to front again and at the end of the move it's a carbon copy of the third goal. Sane slides the ball to Lewandowski, the Pole tucks it home left-footed. That's 23 league goals for the season now.

BAYERN IN COMMAND

Bayern are looking good at the break, getting off to a great start when the clinical Lewandowski scored against Cologne for the seventh match running. That first goal came from a one-on-one, and Thomas Müller got his second assist of the match - and 16th of the season - when he set up Tolisso a little further out. The French midfielder got the ball out of his feet and smashed home to give the champions a two-goal lead at half-time. Cologne have struggled to create many chances, but Uth had a goal disallowed and Duda had a great opportunity right before the break.

COLOGNE GOAL DISALLOWED!

Neuer hits a weak clearance to halfway, after which Florian Kainz wriggles into some space. His pass through for Uth is a good one, and the Cologne striker slots the ball home. Unfortunately for the Billy Goats, though, the goal is chalked off for offside after a VAR review.

MÜLLER DENIED!

It could be three. After a spot of head tennis, Müller is six yards out and volleys the ball goalwards on his left foot. Marvin Schwäbe reacts brilliantly to make a sharp save with his left knee.

TOLISSO THUMPS HOME!

What a goal! Bayern break again and the move ends with Tolisso heading the ball to Müller on the right corner of the Cologne area. The German touches it back first time on the volley, and French midfielder Tolisso takes a touch with his right foot before smashing home from the edge of the box with his left. A cracking first goal of the season for the ex-Lyon player.

LEWANDOWSKI SCORES!

First chance, first goal! Thomas Müller plays in Robert Lewadowski and the Pole has plenty of time to sweep his shot home from inside the area. The flag is up initially but the Bayern striker was onside and the goal is confirmed after a VAR review. That's Lewandowski's 21st strike of this Bundelsiga campaign.

GNABRY'S GREAT RECORD

A MODESTE THREAT?

Cologne ran Bayern close earlier in the season, hitting back from 2-0 down in Munich before eventually losing 3-2 in that Matchday 2 encounter. Serge Gnabry scored twice in that meeting and has a remarkable record against the home side - netting 11 times in eight career games against the Billy Goats. Cologne striker Anthony Modeste was also on target in the reverse fixture, however, and he has 12 Bundesliga goals this season after getting the opener in last week's win at Hertha.

THE LAST TIME THEY MET

NAGELSMANN EXPECTS

Bayern's lead at the top has been cut to three points following Dortmund's win at Freiburg, but Julian Nagelsmann is hoping his side restore a six-point advantage. "It's clear we're the favourites'" he said. "It's also clear we want to win. Our job will be to get a better result than we did against Gladbach."

NEUER AND TOLISSO RETURN

Bayern have made two changes today, boosted by the return of captain Manuel Neuer in goal and France international Corentin Tolisso in midfield. Sven Ulreich and Malik Tillman drop to the bench.

COLOGNE UNCHANGED

Not surprisingly, the home side have made no changes compared to the team that beat Hertha Berlin 3-1 away last time out.

BAYERN XI

BAYERN: Neuer (c) - Kimmich, Pavard, Süle, Sabitzer - Roca, Tolisso - Gnabry, Müller, Musiala - Lewandowski. Subs: Ulreich, Upamecano, Richards, Sane, Wanner, Nianzou, Copado, Tillman.

COLOGNE XI

COLOGNE: Schwäbe - Schmitz, Kilian, Hübers, Hector (c) - Özcan - Schaub, Duda, Kainz - Modeste, Uth. Subs: Urbig, Ljubicic, Andersson, Schindler, Ehizibue, J. Horn, Lemperle, Thielmann, Ostrak.

A PIVOTAL ENCOUNTER

A big game ahead of us today. Bayern will be looking to maintain their advantage at the top after Borussia Dortmund beat Freiburg yesterday. But they're up against a Cologne side that have won their last three games.
