WATCH: ALPHONSO DAVIES ON BAYERN'S NEW MINDSET
BAYERN STAY PERFECT
Bayern make it three competitive wins from three. Despite a bright start, Wolfsburg soon fell away. Bochum are next up for the free-scoring record champions...
Sane drills goalwards from inside the Wolfsburg box. It takes a wicked deflection off Lacroix, but Casteels is able to get something on it.
TIME ADDED ON
Into the first of five added minutes. A good few of use were taken up by VAR reviews...
It's safe to say Bayern are well worth their 2-0 lead...

Alphonso Davies 33.79km/h
Jamal Musiala 33.74km/h
The Bayern fans show their appreciation for Musiala, who has four goals already this season, including a league-leading three in the Bundesliga. Summer signing Ryan Gravenberch is on in the teenager's stead. Kovac, meanwhile, introduces Messrs Vranckx and Brekalo.
TEL ME MORE
Mathys Tel, just 17, is on for Bayern. The French teenager replaces Mane, who was desperately unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
MANE'S LUCK'S OUT
Mane heads in from Müller, but it won't count. After a lengthy review, he's adjudged to have been marginally offside when Sane's initial shot from 18 yards came in.
Decision No goal
Musiala does really well to pick out Mane in the six-yard box. He stoops to head goalwards, but only suceeeds in knocking it down onto his knee and wide. Can he make it three goals in as many competitive games for Bayern?
Marmoush, who had been clutching his right right, makes way for Waldschmidt. The Egypt international has barely had a look-in today.
Bayern have never lost a home Bundesliga match to Wolfsburg (W23, D2). That doesn't look like changing today...
... and 13 in two-and-a-bit competitive games for the record champions!
MORE GOALS THAN EXPECTED...
Musiala shoots, Upamecano turns it home, but Müller is offside. Let-off for the Wolves...
Casteels prevents a third Bayern goal at the Allianz, the Belgian at full stretch to push Sane's deflected strike behind.
Sane goes on the outside of Lacroix, before passing inside to Musiala. He touches it off to Müller, whose first-time shot from 18 yards deflects wide. So fluid from Nagelsmann's side.
Kruse gets on the end of a ball into the Bayern box, but Neuer's out and makes himself big to block. Better from the Wolves, impecabble from Neuer.
Leroy Sane replaces Gnabry in the Bayern attack, while Kruse is on for Wimmer for Wolfsburg. The visitors perhaps switching to a 4-4-2...
BAYERN IN COMPLETE CONTROL
The record champions have been brilliant, and could easily be further ahead. It's a long way back for Wolfsburg, you feel...
Davies sends Mane through on goal. He helps it on to Müller, who selflessly plays a return pass. It opens up for the Senegal star, but he delays his shot, allowing Wolfsburg to scramble back and force a rushed effort that doesn't trouble Casteels.
BAYERN DOUBLE THEIR LEAD!
It's been coming! Davies tears away from Baku down the Bayern left. He cuts a ball back for Kimmich, whose first-time shot looks to be going wide until Müller sticks out a boot to divert it past Casteels.
GOAL!2 : 0
Distance run (km)
Joshua Kimmich Patrick Wimmer
Joshua Kimmich Omar Marmoush
Baku denies Musiala at close quarters. Sabitzer's piledriver is also blocked.
So slick from Bayern in and around the Wolfsburg box. Kimmich eventually takes on the shot, steering a left-footed strike straight at Casteels. Bayern playing with real intent since the goal...
Superb technique by the Frenchman. He gets real power behind his long-range hit that forces Casteels into a diving save.
Bayern lead through their teenaged sensation. Davies stabs a pass to Müller, who helps it on to Musiala. Wolfsburg charge him, but he sees it coming and nonchalantly rolls Lacroix. The Germany international gets a lucky break off Wimmer, before steering past Casteels from 20 yards. He's now Bayern's record U20 scorer with 14 Bundesliga goals.
GOAL!1 : 0
BAYERN IN CHARGE
Mane instigates an incisive Bayern move through the middle. Wimmer fluffs his clearance on the edge of the box, but Sabitzer can't direct his attempted shot on target.

Jamal Musiala 33.74km/h
Omar Marmoush 33.41km/h
Micky van de Ven 33.32km/h
There's a VAR check for a possible handball in the box against Micky van de Ven, but it's not given. Completely accidental.
Situation No penalty
Decision No penalty
With temperatures around 30C in the Bavarian capital, the players are allowed to take on some additional fluids.
Bayern shift the ball with pace once more as Davies drifts inside and plays another outside-of-the-boot pass out to the right. Kimmich clips a pass into the area, but Müller and Mane are caught offside.
Bayern's substitute goalkeeper talks his way into the referee's book.
DISALLOWED MANE GOAL
Brilliant passing from Bayern carves open the Wolfsburg defence. Upamecano - Musiala - Müller - Gnabry and finally Mane. He can't miss from close range, but was clearly offside. The VAR confirms as much.
Decision No goal

ON THE ICE
Hernandez is booked for an uncompromising bodycheck on Wimmer, straight out of the NHL. Marmoush's ensuing free-kick clips the head of Pavard and goes over for a corner that comes to nothing.
OFF THE BAR!
Kimmich with the first corner of the game. It's an out-swinger towards the near post, where Pavard outjumps Arnold and flicks a header against the top of the crossbar.
Rapid from Davies to dispossess Arnold. The Canadian then clips a lovely ball into the box for Mane, but his cut-back is too short and Wolfsburg can clear.
OFF THE POST!
Wolfsburg have started brightly as a ball is clipped to the far post. Wimmer heads it back across goal, where Davies sticks out a boot to divert it behind off the outside of the left-hand post. Crucial intervention - Arnold was ready to pounce!
There's a minute's reflection ahead of the game, in memory of former Bayern president Willi Hoffmann. With Hoffmann in charge, Bayern won the Bundesliga and DFB Cup twice each, and reached the final of the 1982 European Cup. He passed away on 9 August, aged 92.
Kick-off's imminent at the Allianz Arena. Ominously, Bayern have scored in each of their last 28 Bundesliga meetings with Wolfsburg (80 goals all told). That's the record champions' longest goalscoring run against any top-flight team.
WATCH: JAMAL MUSIALA - BAYERN'S 'BAMBI' TAKING GREAT STRIDES
Thomas Müller makes his 417th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern, taking him second on the club's list of all-time appearance-makers. Only his namesake Gerd (472) played more in more top-flight matches.
THE NAGELSMANN VIEW
"We play a very high-speed game, especially in the final third due to having a lot of similar types of player, who like to play with each other and move a lot. In training this week we've again practised playing against opponents who defend deeper. Wolfsburg have a very good team, a very good squad. I expect them in different lines and not to sit back. They'll get in the game and want to win. I'm not expecting them to be wide open, but I don't expect them to park the bus."

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS
Nagelsmann sticks with the same starting line-up that beat Leipzig in the Supercup and Frankfurt on Matchday 1. That means Matthijs de Ligt is again among the substitutes, while Jamal Musiala keeps out Leroy Sane. Kovac makes one change to the side that drew with Bremen as Josuha Guilavogui - on target from the bench on the opening weekend - dislodges Josip Brekalo in midfield.

ONE OF A KIND - ALMOST
Kovac is matched by Franz Beckenbauer and Hansi Flick as the only men to have won the Bundesliga with Bayern as a player and coach.

WIND OUT OF WOLFSBURG'S SAILS
Wolfsburg have a couple of injury worries of their own. Jonas Wind, who scored in the Wolves' 2-2 draw against Bayern on the final day last season, misses out with a hamstring complaint, while midfielder Yannick Gerhardt is also sidelined.

NEVER CHANGE A WINNING TEAM
Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said on Friday he has no need to change his starting line-up from the Frankfurt game, with Benjamin Pavard preferred to summer signing Noussair Mazraoui at right-back, and fellow new arrival Matthijs de Ligt expected to begin on the bench once more.
