Dominant win

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).
Another big and deserved win for Bayern, who followed up their six goals in Frankfurt with seven in Bochum. Their next away game is in Union Berlin, can they get eight there?

So close to a consolation

Hofmann's shot takes a deflection off Upamecano's foot, making it a difficult save for Neuer to make, but he wants his clean sheet and looks like he will get it.

Two from Mane, seven for Bayern.

It is definitely not Bochum's day, as Zoller's shot comes back off the woodwork. Not even a consolation for the hosts.

There are still 15 minutes left to improve on the 7-0 from last season, with Gnabry threading a shot through the legs of Ordets and in off the far post.

When it is not your day...

Nothing is going right for Bochum, and there is a sixth goal for Bayern, with a helping hand from Gamboa. He lunges to prevent Sane from getting in a shot, but all he manages to do is turn the ball past his own goalkeeper. Unlucky for Gamboa.

Penalty for Bayern!

Chance for a fifth goal as Coman's heal is clipped as he entered the area.

Coman close

He's deserved a few goals for all of his work today, and that was nearly a second. Coman sends a low shot just inches wide of the far post

Kimmich over!

Another good chance for Bayern, with Sane pulling the ball back for Kimmich, who's almost level with the penalty spot when he scoops his effort over the crossbar.

Almost five!

Mane turns the ball back for Müller, whose scissor-kick sails wide. Bayern not happy with 'just' four goals before the break.
44'

Risky Riemann!

Riemann delays kicking the ball away and Mane is bearing down on him - when he finally tries to clear his lines, he strikes the Bayern player and is relieved to see the rebound go wide of the post!
43'

Same combination, no doubt this time!

Coman sets up Mane again, but there is no need to check the VAR for this one. The Senegalese cuts back onto his left foot and sends a low shot inside the near post. And now it IS four for Bayern.

Handball given

The goal is cancelled after a VAR check - it did not hit Sane's hip, but rather his hand. We're back to 3-0, and a cheeky look by Sane before celebrating suggested as much.

And it's four!

Coman's header hits the post and it strikes Mane and goes in - a fourth goal for Bayern, and he did not really know much about it as it struck his hip on its way in.

Asano close

And still Bochum look for a goal, this time Asano curling an effort which may have been going wide, but Neuer collects it anyway.

Busy day for Riemann

Bayern are giving the Bochum goalkeeper plenty of work, all within 35 minutes.

A mistake by the Bochum defence and Riemann tries to repair the damage from Gamboa's back header, but he cannot get the ball away and Coman is on hand to tuck the ball in - 3-0 to Bayern!

Bochum still trying

Hofmann holds off Upamecano - which is a challenge in itself - and manages to get a header on target, which is easy for Neuer but shows that Bochum are not going to give up without a fight.

What a chance!

Great move from Bochum with Hofmann teeing up Losilla, with only Neuer to beat, but he snaps at his volley and sends it high over the crossbar. A huge chance for the hosts goes begging.

Sane again!

Another sweet strike from Sane, but this time Riemann is equal to it, making a remarkable save at full stretch to turn the ball behind for a corner.

Zoller tries to reply

Almost a swift response from the hosts with Zoller getting in a shot which is deflected behind for a corner. The hosts' confidence does not seem to have been dented by that early Bayern goal.

Champagne football

What a move, and what a finish. Sane exchanges passes with Sabitzer and the ball then makes its way out to Coman, with first-time ping-passing, and he pulls it back to Sane who wraps his right foot around it and curls it inside the near post. Stunning strike!

The hosts are taking the game to Bayern, showing no signs of intimidation and being urged on by a vociferous crowd.

What an atmosphere!

The stadium is bouncing - this is one of the games Bochum's fans have been really looking forward to.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

Nagelsmann shuffles his pack for the first time this season, due to injuries to Davies and Musiala. Matthijs de Ligt makes his full debut, with Hernandez moving over to left-back. Sane comes in for Davies, and there's a start for Coman. Gnabry is only fit enough for the bench. As for Bochum, Förster is preferred to Osei-Tutu in attack.

BAYERN'S FANTASTIC FOUR

Jamal Musiala looks set to be miss out on today's encounter with a hip problem, but that's no reason not to take a look at Bayern's collective attacking quartet as part of the build up to today's fascinating fixture.

NAGELSMANN SPEAKS

Chatting ahead of today's game, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said, "[Bochum] were strong in both games against us [last season]. I'm looking forward to the game, and hopefully to a different result to last season."

WHEN THEY WERE KINGS

Feast your eyes on this! You can be sure VfL's players will ahead of kick off today. The 70th encounter between Bochum and Bayern left the Vonovia-Ruhrstadion bouncing last term.

BOCHUM HOPE?

The visitors have been on fire so far this term, scoring goal after goal against Leipzig [in the Supercup], Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg. Bochum, on the other hand, not so much. But wait. There is inspiration for the hosts in the form of last season's stunning 4-2 win against the record champions at this very venue!

HELLO, AND WELCOME !

What's not to love about Matchday 3 of the Bundesliga so far? We've had it all and now, to conclude, we're all set for a barnstormer between Bochum and Bayern.
