WATCH: GNABRY - 'WE HAD TO SHOW IT'
Bayern unseat Freiburg in second to close the gap on leaders Union to four points. A superb display by the defending champions.
The Senegal forward takes aim, but the ball hits a bump in the turf and completely throws him.
Sabitzer cushions a Gnabry cross into the path of Tel, who sends a half-volley over. Bayern have been brilliant today.
Ginter blocks Mane's path to goal, but only succeeds in poking the ball back to the edge of the box, where Sabitzer sweeps unerringly into the bottom corner.
Mazraoui's pulled something, but smiles as he goes off - so it can't be that bad. Young Stanisic is on.
Seventeen-year-old Tel follows Sabitzer and Pavard onto the pitch. Sane's annoyed he didn't add a second goal to his tally, but it was another superb display by the Bayern No.10. Goretzka and De Ligt also get a breather. Höler's on for Freiburg as the visitors chase a measure of pride.
Musiala sends Sane in on goal. He could go it alone, but elects to square a pass to Davies - blocked! If that had been on his left foot, the break would surely have ended differently.
The list goes on...
HERE COMES BAMBI
Warm applause for Choupo-Moting - he's led the line to great effect. Bayern's five-goal teen and Kopa trophy candidate Musiala is on...
Bayern playing keep-ball as Sane works the ball out to the right. Mazraoui's decoy run allows Gnabry to pick out a cross. Goretzka darts into the box, but it's headed clear.
Ex-Bayern striker Petersen is among the changes. Freiburg have been outplayed from the off...
Mane is left all alone as Gnabry chips a pass into the box. He takes a touch and lofts over the advancing Flekken. Bayern are running away with it.
Choups and Gnabry combine again. Sane takes posssesion from 18 yards, takes aim and leathers an unstoppable effort past Flekken.
Lovely interchange of passes between Choupo-Moting and Gnabry, whose shot strikes the upright.
As you were in Munich. Can Freiburg gert a foothold in the game?
Bayern lead, and lead comfortably at the break. Goals from Gnabry and Choupo-Moting have provided the rewards for a tasty 45 minutes of football from Julian Nagelsmann's side.
CHOUPO-MOTING'S HAPPY STAT
The ball is spread wide from Gnaby, who side foots a shot at the target. Flekken blocks that one wide. Following a slightly nervy start, Bayern have been pretty rampant here.
Sane blooters an effort way off target. Probably worth an effort, but Sane will want to do a lot better next time he gets a look at goal.
HOSTS LOOKING UP
As things stand, Bayern are going second in the Bundesliga standings, four points behind Union Berlin, although it is still very early days in this game.
BAYERN DOUBLE UP
Bayern build. Sane plays the most delicious of passes with the outside of his boot in for Choupo-Moting, who thumps home Bayern's second. The hosts are well in command at the Allianz Arena.
Günter gets into an excellent position down the left but the Freiburg captain makes the wrong option by choosing a cut back tat rolls to nobody in particular. Bayern clear.
GNABRY EYES MORE GOALS
Sadio Mane watches a dropping ball into the box and begins to wind up for a volley. The Senegalese attacker is off target.
Gnabry again. This time with a low shot from distance that flies all the way through to Flekken, who parries the ball away low down.
STILL BAYERN COME
Bayern are looking threatening every time they come forward now. Kimmich plays a tasty, looping pass in for Gnabry, who volleys across the face of goal. There's nobody there for the hosts.
GNABRY'S HEADER HISTORY
Gnabry's opener was his third goal of the season. He scored with a header for the first time since May 22, 2021.
Freiburg win a corner. The ball is eventually poked back to Ginter. The defender shoots but the ball takes a deflection wide.
GNABRY MAKES HIS MARK
The hosts hit the front after some lovely build up. Davies strikes a low cross for Sane, whose point-blank shot is stopped by a fine reaction save by Flekken. The rebound loops out to Gnabry who power-headers home for 1-0.
DAVIES TO BAYERN'S RESCUE
Schade does well and squares towards Doan. Davies nips in to make a crucial intervention and concede the corner, which comes to nothing.
Flekken's rushed clearance falls straight to the feet of Kimmch, who drives the ball straight back at goal. To the Freiburg shot stopper's relief, Kimmich's shot is off target.
DAVIES HAS A GO
Bayern get going through Davies, who wallops a rising shot at goal from the left. The ball fizzes narrowly over the top.
FREIBURG STRIKE FIRST
Ritsu Doan flashes a shot across the face of goal as the visitors settle quickly. Schade then sees an effort blocked by De Ligt.
ROBBEN IN THE HOUSE
We've just spotted former Bayern favourite Arjen Robben in the crowd and taking in tonight's game.
Bayern kick off and immediately start to play it about, with Freiburg's players in hot pressing pursuit.

BAYERN'S KLASSIKER MEMORIES
FREIBURG'S "NICE POSITION"
Freiburg are unbeaten in seven Bundesliga games, of which they have won four. It's just that sort of form that has the Black Forest side in second place in the standings going into Super Sunday. “It’s nice that we can travel to Munich in this position," coach Chrsitian Streich said. "[Bayern] aren’t above us for once and we hope that they won’t be after the game either,” he added.
