Full-time: Bayern 2-0 Hertha
Christensen denies Sane
Almost a third for Bayern in injury time, but Christensen, who has been brilliant, makes another strong save to thwart the winger.
Hertha attacks in vain
Dardai's men are opening up as they attempt to stage a comeback, but they are struggling to create many clear-cut opportunities.
Kimmich on form
Bayern double their advantage!
Coman has been a danger throughout this match, and this time, Christensen can't deny him. Kimmich, again, is the provider, and the French winger shows plenty of composure to control and slot through the goalkeeper's legs.
Fingertip save from Christensen
Coman's stinging shot is tipped over by the Danish shot-stopper to keep Hertha in it.
Cancelo takes aim
Bayern are looking to put this game to bed now, and his shot is deflected wide for a corner. The set-piece ultimately comes to nothing though.
Hertha up against it
The Berlin outfit could really do with at least a point here to keep their survival hopes alive.
Bayern move ahead!
The Bavarians have their goal! Gnabry is the hero, getting on the end of a clever Kimmich dink to bury a diving header. Advantage Bayern in the title race!
Maza makes his debut
Dardai calls upon 17-year-old Ibrahim Maza - what a time to make your Bundesliga bow!
All hands on deck
Müller thrown into the fray
Can the club legend inspire Bayern to victory?
Hertha yet to test Sommer
De Ligt misses the target
Another corner, and another Bayern header goes begging. This time, De Ligt is the man to get on the end of a ball into the area, but also nods over.
Müller waiting in the wings
First chance of the half
Kimmich whips a cross into Mane, but his header is always going over, albeit narrowly.
Second half begins
Bayern kick off this vital 45 minutes of Bundesliga football.
Honours even at the break
Mane goes close
Mane has a free header, but cannot get it on target. Another Bayern chance goes begging.
Goretzka takes aim
A first-time effort from the Germany international is easily gathered by Christensen.
Huge Christensen save
Bayern are starting to turn up the pressure, as Christensen is required to make a fantastic stop to deny Gnabry.
5 minutes left
Just five minutes left in this half for either side to find an opener.
Pavard goes close
The Frenchman loves a spectacular goal, but his drive from range flies narrowly over the bar.
The hosts are in front in terms of xGoals, but still need to do more to break the deadlock.
Bayern leading xGoals
A big opportunity for Coman, who cuts inside on to his left foot and fires at goal. Christensen, though, blocks the low shot with his feet to keep us on level terms.
Hertha standing firm
Bayern shouts for a penalty!
Coman takes a tumble in the area when played in by Gnabry, but referee Patrick Ittrich does not think the contact from Mittelstädt is enough to point to the spot.
Hertha looking to counter with Lukebakio
Lukebakio is Hertha's top goalscorer in the Bundesliga this season with 11 strikes, and the visitors are looking to get the ball into him at every opportunity. He's managed to work himself into a couple of dangerous positions, but hasn't been able to test Sommer between the sticks.
'Die Alte Dame' aren't getting their foot on the ball right now, but no-one can doubt their dedication and commitment - they're throwing themselves in the way of every cross and shot.
Plenty of possession
Bayern dominating possession
All Bayern at the moment as they looked to put their opponents under early pressure. Just that one Cancelo chance to show for it so far.
Christensen called into action
Barely a minute on the clock and Bayern have their first shot, as Joao Cancelo fires a first-time effort straight at the Hertha goalkeeper.
And we're off!
Hertha get us underway!
Tuchel looking to extend run
10 minutes until kick-off
Not long to go now before this huge match for both sides!

Coach view: Bayern
Coach view: Hertha
Pal Dardai: "We have try to make the most out of our trip to Munich. We have to make better use of our set pieces, and we practiced that in training this week. The team spirit exists in the dressing room, but we have to see it on the pitch too."

Hertha on the brink
There was to be no new coach bounce for Hertha under the returning Pal Dardai. They were soundly beaten at home to Bremen, and remain rooted to the foot of the table. Prior to Matchday 30, the gap to Stuttgart in the relegation play-off spot is three points and five to the safe house.
Bayern doing the hunting with five games to go
The defending champions' shock 3-1 loss in Mainz has opened the door to title rivals Dortmund. Bayern ended Matchday 29 a point behind the new leaders, but could be as many as four off the pace if BVB win in Bochum on Friday.
