CHANGES MADE

Fürth make three moves from the bench with Barry, Itten and Tillman - against the side he grew up with - all on. Meanwhile, Gnabry is on in place of Müller.

GRIESBECK MISFIRES!

A chance opens up for Fürth with Abiama found in attack with a bit of space. As Süle closes in on him, he slots the ball in behind towards Griesbeck making a run forward but he miscues his shot with his left and it's a simple save for Neuer.
72'

BAYERN TOO STRONG

Despite the man advantage, Fürth haven't been able to make inroads here going forward. Bayern are maintaining control of the ball for the most part. Opportunities are opening up on the break for the hosts, but they can't take them.
68'

OWN-GOAL FOR GRIESBECK

An unfortunate moment for the midfielder who attempts to defend Kimmich's free-kick into the middle. Griesbeck challenges Lewandowski to reach the ball first and beats him to it, but his toe on the ball pokes it under Burchert and into the net.

LEWANDOWSKI ON TARGET

A first shot on target of the game for Bayern's No.9 after he hit the crossbar earlier on. This one is with his left foot from around the penalty area, but it's straight at Burchert in Fürth's goal.

PAVARD SENT OFF!

Benjamin Pavard is shown a straight red card as he brings down Green on the way through goal. It's a tactical foul and Pavard is on his way.

ALMOST THREE!

Bayern inches from adding another as Upamecano leaps high at the back post to head a cross back across goal. Müller is waiting at the back post, but Meyerhöfer is ahead of him and make a crucial interception to put the ball behind for a corner.

HERNANDEZ ON TOP

The French defender has won nine duels so far, the most of any player in the game. Keeping things tidy at the back for Bayern.

GORETZKA WIDE AGAIN

Bayern continuing the pressure on Fürth's goal as Goretzka's cross floats over the crossbar of Burchert's goal. Bayern are allowing things to tick over in possession.
31'

KIMMICH DOUBLES THE LEAD

And it's two for Bayern with Kimmich doubling the lead from distance. Davies cuts inside from the left and finds Sane on the edge of the area. He looks for options, and goes back to Kimmich who is standing alone 25 yards from goal. It's a superbly precise hit from the midfielder, who cooly curls the ball into the far bottom corner.

GORETZKA FIRES WIDE

Another shot wide from the Bayern midfielder as he drags wide again from the edge of the penalty area. Bayern haven't peppered the Fürth goal with shots, only having five so far, but are 1-0 up.

MÜLLER MAGIC

Thomas Müller scored his 218th official goal for Bayern, moving level with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge for third place in the club's all-time list. Only Gerd Müller and Robert Lewandowski scored more often for Bayern (552 and 305 times respectively).

FÜRTH RESPONSE

The home side are bouncing back well after conceding, with the majority of their attacks coming down the right flank. Still no shots on Neuer's goal, however.

MÜLLER FOR THE LEAD!

And the pressure pays off for Bayern as Davies races away down the left flank. His cross is deflected out to the top of the area, and Müller slots home beyond Burchert from around 16 yards out. Bayern ahead early on!

THREE-MAN DEFENCE

Nagelsmann appears to have switched to a three-man defence for this evening, with Süle, Upamecano and Hernandez. Pavard is at right wing-back and Alphonso Davies on the left.

LOOKING FOR GAPS

Bayern are finding space through the Fürth midfield as Sane picks up possession and looks for Lewandowski's run, but his pass is too heavy for the No.9 to latch onto.

GORETZKA HAS A GO!

First go at goal for Bayern as the ball falls kindly to Goretkza on the edge of the area, but his sweet hit drags just wide of the mark with Burchert at full-stretch.

BAYERN IN CONTROL

As expected, Bayern are taking control of the ball early on here and looking to build pressure around the Fürth penalty area. So far, the home side are handling the pressure well.

KICK-OFF!

Kick-off!

LEWY'S RECORD NIGHT?

Lewandowski would equal a record set by Maier's former teammate Gerd Müller if he finds the target against Fürth and scores in a 16th consecutive Bundesliga game. The former Borussia Dortmund striker already has seven goals in five games this term - one every 57 minutes.

GOOD LUCK CHARM FOR THE SHAMROCKS

Good luck charm for Die Kleeblätter? Fürth have averaged a point per game from their Friday fixtures in the Bundesliga, compared to 0.5 on other days. However, Fürth last beat Bayern in August 1964, when they put two past a team featuring goalkeeping great Sepp Maier. It's been a long time coming for that win over Bayern...

WATCH: ANALYSIS - THE NEW LEROY SANE

One of the standout performers in Bayern Munich's 7-0 battering of Bochum, Leroy Sane has enjoyed an impressive return to form in recent weeks after a so-so start to the season.

FÜRTH TEAM NEWS

Fürth dropped their midfield diamond and went 4-4-2 recently, with the powerful Dudziak coming into the side and winning a penalty against Hertha. He starts again here alongside Green, but defender Jung, as well as attackers Kehr and Ngankam, remain sidelined with injury.

BAYERN TEAM NEWS

Sane looks in good form after netting in the last two league matches, while Müller scored on Bayern's last visit to Fürth - a game which ended in a 3-0 victory for the visitors in August 2012. French winger Coman missed out for Nagelsmann's nine-in-a-row champions, while Musiala and Gnabry have seen their training interrupted this week with knocks, but are both on the bench here.

An inside look at where the Bayern players will prepare to face Fürth this evening.

TEAM NEWS COMING UP

We're just over an hour from kick-off here in Fürth, and that means that team news will be with us in the next 15 minutes or so.

TALE OF THE TAPE

With it being bottom against top, there's quite a contrast to how these two sides have started the campaign. Fürth have picked up just a single point from their first five games of the season, suffering four defeats thus far and having the joint-worst defence and attack so far. Meanwhile, Bayern have won four in a row since opening the season with a draw at Gladbach. They have scored 20 goals in the process to lead the league heading into this weekend.
2:30

WATCH: BOTTOM VS. TOP - FÜRTH VS. BAYERN!

DAVID VS. GOLIATH

With just a single point to their name, Fürth have had a hard time of it so far following their unexpected promotion to the Bundesliga last season. A home meeting with record champs Bayern does not, on the face of it, make their immediate lot any easier. The Franconians can, however, take some measure of solace from an historic mid-1990s DFB Cup victory earned by pre-fusion partner club TSV Vestenbergsgreuth over a star-packed Bayern side.
