Watch: Kane: Great to get a couple today
The referee blows the final whistle and Bayern have their second Bundesliga win of 2023/24. Harry Kane has a first double in the German top flight, the Englishman netting from the penalty spot and then applying a superb, striker's finish for his second of the game. The hosts hit the front through Felix Uduokhai's own goal and took time to hit their stride. But Thomas Tuchel and Harry Kane are very much up and running now.
Tel off target
Bayern pour forward and Tel makes himself some space in a central area before wafting a shot high over the bar.
Tidy goal from Augsburg. Demirovic nutmegs De Ligt and Beljo is in right in front of Ulreich. The Croatian finishes smartly and Augsburg have a goal back.
So close Kane!
Dahmen spares Uduokhai
Bayern sub Laimer beats a couple of opponents and looks to cross from the right. Uduokhai gets a toe on the ball, sending it flying towards the near post. Dahmen gets down and parries wide.
Applause all around the stadium as Kim and Coman head off after both having put in a shift. De Ligt and Gravenberch are on.
Cardona pulls back Davies and that's a yellow card for the Augsburg player.
How about a mention for Canada's finest, Alphonso Davies? The flying full back leads the Bundesliga assist charts with three, and two of them have been for Harry Kane!
Robert Lewandowski scored his first Bundesliga brace in his seventh top-flight game for Bayern. Harry Kane has managed his first double after just two Bundesliga matches!
Bayern change things up
Thomas Tuchel throws Müller, Tel and Laimer into the mix. The hosts look home free as the Bayern fans bounce and sing.
Harry Kane has a brace! Coman releases Davies down the left. The Canadian slips a pass in for Kane who brilliantly dinks the ball, first time, past Dahmen. That was a textbook centre forward's finish.
Exceptional from Sane who takes the pass from Noussair Mazraoui before dinking a superb shot towards the far post, which the ball smacks against. So unlucky.
Enrico Maaßen goes for broke. The visiting tactician makes four changes as he attempts to get back into this contest. Cardona, Beljo, Tietz and Berisha are all on.
A lovely, chipped pass from Sane finds Gnabry who, leaning back , nods the ball goalwards. Finn Dahmen makes a top save, palming the ball wide of the upright.
Bayern's attacker picks up possession from Kimmich and twinkle toes his way into the danger zone. A cross across the face just evades Sane.
Rexhbecaj chops down the pacy Sane and the Augsburg man goes into the book.
Worth noting that Bayern failed to concede a single goal in the first half of all 11 Bundesliga games under Thomas Tuchel.
Mergim Berisha, prowling inside the Bayern box, is just forced out of the picture by Upamecano. At the other end, Sane slashes a shot wide of the target.
Lovely dribbling from Coman Kane in the middle. The France international pokes a diagonal pass through to Kane, who hoiks over from a tight angle.
Coman to Kane to Sane to Mazraoui: Bayern are looking to pass it into the net here but the move eventually breaks down.
10 times under pressure
Off we go again
Augsburg, all kitted out in green, get the second half underway.
Berisha heads over the crossbar and with that we head into the break. Bayern have had to work their socks off against a well-organised Augsburg. A touch of fortune led to the hosts' going 1-0 up via an own goal while Harry Kane's perfect penalty doubled Thomas Tuchel's side's lead.
Harry on song
Kane on the spot
Harry Kane's compatriots Kevin Keegan and Tony Woodcock each missed their first (and only) Bundesliga penalties for Hamburg and Cologne respectively.
Bayern suddenly in control
What a difference eight minutes makes! Augsburg looked comfortable at 0-0 not that long ago but Bayern only needed a couple of moments to completely change the complexion of this game. That's what champions do.
Harry Kane places the ball on the spot, takes a few steps back, runs up and whacks the ball down the middle. The Allianz Arena erupts. Kane has his second Bundesliga goal.
Niklas Dorsch's arm is raised and makes contact with Kimmich's shot from outside the area. After a VAR review, Bayern have a penalty.
That's Felix Uduokhai's second-ever own goal in the Bundesliga. He last put through his own net against Dortmund in January 2021.
Well, it always seemed Bayern might need something out of the ordinary to take the lead the way this game has been going and the hosts certainly managed that here. Gnabry plays Sane in on the right. His shot is saved by Dahmen but the ball then ricochets off Uduokhai, then against the post and just over the line.
Augsburg panic in defence and the ball breaks for Goretzka, who gets his head down and whacks a shot goalwards from the edge of the area. Dahmen palms the effort over the crossbar.
Super play from the visitors to get in on goal. Michel rolls a super pass in to Demirovic who suddenly has a sight of goal. The striker snatches at it a little and his effort skews wide of the far post.
Kimmich, Goretzka lead charge
Goretzka and Kimmich show their teammates the way and combine to burst out through the centre. Sane receives possession on the edge of the box but he's forced away from goal and a loose pass follows. Bayern have yet to click here.
Enrico Maaßen's men have not committed a single foul in the opening 23 minutes of this game, quite a feat.
Kane pops a lovely pass out to Mazraoui, who wellies a cross from the right out of play. A few groans sound out around the Allianz Arena. Augsburg are keeping the record champions at an arm's length thus far.
Awaiting first big chance
Fastest runner (km/h)
Leroy Sané Rubén Vargas
Bayern - with yet another corner - swing one into the mixer. Finn Dahmen flaps at it and the ball fizzes behind the goalkeeper. A lucky escape.
Augsburg defender Arne Engels stretches out a leg and gets a crucial touch on the ball with Gnabry threatening to nip in on goal. That was a big intervention.
Bayern bossing it
And there we see Augsburg's gameplan, which won't come as a huge surprise to their opponents. Berisha almost gets away on a quick, direct counter-attack. Ulreich is out quickly to end Augsburg's hopes of an early away shock.
Kimmich has a pop
Mazraoui taps to Kimmich who drills a low one at the target from distance. His effort is deflected wide for a corner, which comes to nothing.
A quick ball over the top has Gnabry racing through but Felix Uduokhai is there to knock a pass back to his goalkeeper. The hosts are dominating possession in the opening stages.
The Battle of Bavaria in ON.
Bayern and Augsburg make their way out onto the pitch at the Allianz Arena. We're all set for kick-off!
Bayern eye top spot
The hosts have a task ahead of them to unseat Union Berlin at the top of the Bundesliga standings today: a win by three clear goals is what Bayern require to go top of the pile at the end of Matchday 2.
Both teams are out on the Allianz Arena turf going through their respective pre-match warm-ups. The stadium is filling nicely as we edge ever closer to kick off.
All eyes on Harry Kane
So, the big man makes his first Bundesliga appearance at the Allianz Arena. His debut last weekend went pretty well, with the 30-year-old weighing in with a maiden top-flight goal and assist. England's record goalscorer will be in good company in attack today, with Gnabry, Coman and Matchday 1's double goalscorer Sane in support.
Joshua Kimmich milestone
No Daniel Peretz
Bayern's new goalkeeper will have to wait for his first squad appearance, with the record champions announcing: "New signing Daniel Peretz is not in the squad today, as he is not yet eligible to play."
Bayern starting XI
Ulreich - Mazraoui, Kim, Upamecano, Davies - Kimmich (c), Goretzka - Gnabry, Sane, Coman - Kane

No goals against
Is it too soon to note that Bayern are currently the only Bundesliga team not to have conceded a goal in the top flight this season? Well, there it is, we've highlighted that nugget for your reading pleasure!
Augsburg's away blues
Bayern may have lost their last two competitive games at the Allianz Arena (see below) but Augsburg's record on the road of late has been worrying. Today's visitors are without a victory on their last 13 road trips, which is an unwanted club record.
Kane's scoring goal
It's a rainy one in Munich today with a high of 17 degrees Celsius, or 62 Fahrenheit. Expect a slick surface at the Allianz Arena.

Maaßen: "We need another perfect day"
Tuchel: "Augsburg have changed their style"
Bayern have a strong record at home against Augsburg, as versus most teams in the Bundesliga, having lost just one of the 12 meetings between the teams at the Allianz Arena in the top flight. However, Die Fuggerstädter are not to be underestimated - they have beaten their more illustrious opponents in each of the past two league campaigns.
