THEY'VE DONE IT!
Jubilant scenes on the Frankfurt bench and among their players as the Eagles win for the first time in the Bundesliga this season. They were under intense pressure for much of the match and needed several brilliant saves from Kevin Trapp to keep them in the game, but goals from Hinteregger and Kostic did the business!
Neuer comes up for a corner in the fourth of five minutes of stoppage time. Will there be late drama?

GORETZKA VOLLEYS OVER!
A header falls to Goretzka just outside the Frankfurt box and he volleys it at goal, but gets too much power behind it and the ball flies over.
My oh my! Frankfurt are in front! Sow nips in ahead of Sabitzer of the ball as Bayern try to clear an attack and he feeds it to his left to Kostic. The winger smacks a fierce low drive across Neuer and into the net!
The Germany international is replaced by Choupo-Moting.

NEXT FRANKFURT SUB
Fresh legs up front as Lammers comes on for Borre.
Sabitzer comes on for Süle as Bayern replace a defender with another more attack-minded player in a bid to get a winner.
HINTEREGGER FROM HALFWAY!
The Frankfurt defender spies Neuer well off his line and lets fly with an audacious effort from about 45 yards out. It lacks both the power and precision to go in, though.
NO GOAL FOR LEWANDOWSKI?
The Polish hitman didn't score against Fürth last week and is yet to find the target today - though not for a lack of trying. The last time he went two Bundesliga games without scoring was in November / December 2019, when he even fired blanks in three straight games.
FIRST BAYERN SUB
On comes Musiala for Gnabry as Nagelsmann bids to find a solution to getting past Trapp.
Sane unleashes a brilliant volley from 20 yards. It's flying in at the near post but Trapp pulls off another flying save.
Lewandowski tees up Gnabry for a shot as he arrives at pace in the right-hand side of the box, but his powerful shot is well saved by Trapp.
Hauge looks like he's going one-on-one with Neuer as he races to collect a through-ball, but suddenly the Bayern keeper appears and nicks the ball off his foot just in time.
SÜLE LINES ONE UP
Gnabry cushions the ball down to Süle on the edge of the Frankfurt box and the defender lashes a first-time effort at goal, but it's blocked before it reaches Trapp.
DOUBLE CHANGE FOR FRANKFURT
Visiting coach Glasner makes the first substitutions of the game, bringing on Hauge and Da Costa for Lindström and Toure.

TRAPP DENIES LEWANDOWSKI
Bayern are really knocking on the door here and Trapp makes a stunning save to keep out Lewndowski's close-range header, before keeping out another shot from Sane moments later.
SANE TRACKING BACK
The Germany international tried to dribble into the Frankfurt box but was crowded out and lost the ball. He sprinted back 30 or 40 yards to recover possession on the halfway line though - and his effort was met with a huge roar of approval from the home crowd.
Distance run (km)
Sow plays another brilliant ball forward, this time low, and it cuts out two or three Bayern players to send Borre clear. He's still a good 45 yards from goal though and doesn't have the pace in a footrace against Davies, who nicks the ball off his toe.
SANE BLAZES OVER
The Bayern attacker beats Tuta to a through-ball but can't keep his shot down on his weaker right foot.
UNDER WAY AGAIN!
Here we go!

GNABRY SURELY... BUT NO?!?!?!
Sane collects Goretzka's ball over the defence and plays it low across the face of goal. Gnabry is arriving at the back post and has the goal at his mercy, but he somehow side-foots it wide!
TOURE MUST SCORE!
Another chance against the run of play as Sow pings a long ball forward. Toure catches Davies flat-footed and chests it down, leaving him 16 yards out with just Neuer to beat. He shoots with his left foot, but the Bayern custodian makes a huge save to keep the score at 1-1!
KIMMICH FROM RANGE
The Bayern midfielder lines up a shot from outside the box but Trapp - who's had plenty of practice today - keeps it out.
OUT OF THE BLUE
Frankfurt have been under pressure for most of the match but they scored from their first real chance of the game, Hinteregger grabbing his first goal of the season and Frankfurt's first headed goal too.
Captain for the day. Hinteregger atones for his earlier mistake to thunder in a header from a corner, leaving Neuer no chance from six yards.
SANE ALMOST MAKES IT TWO!
Tearing into space down the left, Sane has a sight of goal but his shot hits Trapp on the chest and bounces clear.
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
It's been coming and Bayern finally manage to break through. Hinteregger attempts to dribble the ball out from the back and his attempted pass his blocked. Lewandowski lays it off into the path of the onrushing Goretzka, who places a low shot across Trapp and into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.
SO CLOSE FROM SÜLE!
The defender, operating at right-back today, gets forward down the right and plays a one-two with Müller as he enters the box. As he receives the return pass the Germany international flicks it over a defender's boot and lashes a left-footed drive at goal that flashes just wide of the near post.
It's still 0-0 as Frankfurt dig in. They've ridden their luck a couple of times but will only increase in confidence from here the longer the game remains goalless.

GORETZKA HAS A GO
Another Bayern shot, another Trapp save. Goretzka pops up in space about 35 yards from goal and shoots low. Trapp sees it all the way and gets down to his right to keep it out.
MÜLLER STRAIGHT AT TRAPP
The openings are coming thick and fast for Bayern, this time for Müller. His left-footed shot on the turn from the edge of the area is a comfortable one for the Frankfurt goalkeeper though.
TRAPP PREVENTS OWN GOAL!
Gnabry crosses low into the middle from the left. Jakic is tracking back into the box and inadvertently sends the ball looping towards his own goal as he tries to clear. Trapp is alert to the danger and tips it over for a corner.
SANE FREE-KICK GOES WIDE
Bayern are awarded a free-kick in a central position, about 25 yards out. Sane takes it and gets the ball over the ball, but it whizzes just wide of Trapp's left-hand post.
They may need a tactical rethink after those two chances for Lewandowski, but Frankfurt are set up defensively here. There's no high press; instead they're sitting back in their own half and only attacking the opposition when they cross the halfway line. Borre is alone up top, with the side becoming a 5-4-1 formation out of possession.
OVER FROM LEWANDOWSKI!
Stunning from Davies in the build-up, nutmegging his marker before sprinting 30 yards to the byline down the left and standing up a cross for Lewandowski. It's usually the kind of header the Pole buries with his eyes closed, but he's under pressure from a defender here and can't keep it down.
FIRST CHANCE FOR LEWANDOWSKI!
A quick break forward from Bayern down the right as Gnabry feeds Müller in the middle, and he immediately clips the ball to his left to Lewandowski, arriving at the back post. He pokes it at goal, but Trapp is there to save!
HERE WE GO!
The balling is rolling at the Allianz Arena!
The teams are walking out on to the pitch and lining up for the pre-match formalities. We'll be up and running soon!

FIRST OUTING FOR TUTA
The 22-year-old Brazilian is making his first Bundesliga appearance of the season, having only previously featured as a substitute in the DFB Cup and Europa League. Meanwhile, Ilsanker makes just his second start under Glasner.

TEAM NEWS - BAYERN
It's largely as expected for Bayern as Süle replaces the suspended Pavard at right-back in an unchanged line-up from the win over Dynamo Kiev - a first under Nagelsmann. Kimmich and Goretzka continue their partnership in central midfield, with summer arrivals Sabitzer on the bench once more, while the in-form Sane begins in attacking midfield with Gnabry and Müller, meaning Musiala is among the substitutes again.

TEAM NEWS - FRANKFURT
Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner has made three changes to his side following the victory in Antwerp on Thursday. Lindström comes in for Lammers up top alongside Borre, Ilsanker provides greater steel in midfield than the more attack-minded Hrustic, while Tuta replaces Hasebe at centre-back.

101ST BUNDESLIGA MEETING
Across the 100 top-flight matches contested to date, Bayern have won 55 to Frankfurt's 23 (22 draws). The Eagles did take all three points the last time the teams met, earning a 2-1 home victory in February this year, but they've conceded five goals in each of their last three visits to the Allianz Arena.
Wins for Dortmund and Freiburg yesterday closed Bayern's lead at the top to just a single point, something Julian Nagelsmann's side will obviously be keen to rectify here. Frankfurt, meanwhile, are the Bundesliga's draw specialists, having shared the points in five of their six league outings so far. They're yet to win in the Bundesliga in 2021/22 - what a confidence booster it would be if they broke that particular duck today.
Thank you for joining us as we gear up for a mouth-watering clash at the Allianz Arena as league leaders Bayern take on an improving Frankfurt side. Both teams earned victory in Europe during the week, the Champions League and Europa League respectively, so who will take that form into today's game?
