A POINT APIECE !
My oh my did Gladbach earn that point. And what can you say about Yann Sommer? The Swiss keeper was inspired as he pulled out stop after stop. He was ultimately beaten by Leroy Sane but Marcus Thuram's first-half goal ensures the Foals hold the champions.
TIME ALMOST UP
Coman prods a shot wide and that might just be that ...
Bayern are lining up to shoot here. Musiala does so and fires over the top. Nagelsmann drops to his knees.
NO WAY THROUGH
Pavard is in here and unleashes a power-blaster at goal. You've guessed it, Sommer saves.
Just to keep Bayern on their toes, Hermann breaks and finds Thuram, who cuts back inside and fires straight into Neuer's arms.
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 90 minutes
Leroy Sane's equaliser came after Bayern's 27th shot of the night.
Hermann is straight into the action and rockets a shot high and wide of the upright.
BAYERN, AT LAST
Davies feeds Musiala who turns and finds Sane. The Bayern No.10 picks his corner and drills home. Simple but deadly from the champions.
BIG TEN MINUTES
Leroy Sane sees yellow, Nagelsmann is arguing with the assistant and the crowd are whistling their frustration; this is not going Bayern's way at all. There is still plenty of time for the hosts to turn this around, however.
YANN THE MAN
Yann Sommer has just made his 14th (fourteenth) save of this game, Pavard this time the frustrated player as super Sommer dives across and palms the shot away.
SOMMER SOMMER SOMMER
How many times have we seen the Gladbach 'keeper in this kind of form? A block from Gnabry's shot precedes one more save from a Müller header.
MUSIALA IN ACTION
Musiala looks fresh as a daisy as he jinks his way through the Gladbach back-line. The 19-year-old can only find Sommer with his subsequent pass.
Julian Nagelsmann switches things up a little with the introduction of Gnabry and Musiala. Just after the attackers come on, Sane accepts a Kimmich pass from a free kick before sending one down Sommer's throat. The Swiss stopper will pick those off all night.
Neuhaus sends a very ambitious effort over the crossbar. The pressure on Gladbach is only temporarily lifted. Bayern are on the attack again ....
BAYERN FRUSTRATION BUILDING
A couple of Bayern bookings with Sabitzer and Kimmich seeing yellow hints at the frustration being felt by the hosts here. The crowd are doing their bit to lift the men in red who are desperate for a goal.
SUPER SOMMER !
Yann Sommer keeps Gladbach in the lead just when it looks like Mane has a goal at his feet. The 'keeper makes a double save with his legs to deny Bayern's attacker from close range.
Gladbach win their first corner of the game. Hofmann takes from the right. Itakura rises and sends a downward header at the target. Neuer saves that with ease.
BAYERN LACK CUTTING EDGE
Plenty of good work from Mane, Sane, and Müller in and around the area but the hosts are just lacking that killer final touch here as Borussia defend their lead.
MANE COMES ALIVE
Mane zips forward and sends a low centre into the danger zone from the left. Hofmann smashes clear.
That's not great news for the visitors, who lose Alassane Plea to injury. Hannes Wolf is on for the Foals.
DECENT BAYERN OMEN
The last time Bayern were 1-0 down in a home game at half-time, they managed to recover to win 4-1. That was against Greuther Fürth on Matchday 23 last season.
MÜLLER OFF TARGET
Kimmich drops a pass towards the near post and Müller looks a little unsure of his surroundings as he jumps to head the ball, knocking out for a goal kick as a result.
A quick look at the shots count in that first half and Bayern had 11 to Gladbach's one.
OFF WE GO AGAIN ...
Away we go in the second half. This is the first time Bayern have been behind this season. Can they pull themselves back into this one or will Gladbach be able to hold out against the champions?
FOALS RACE INTO THE BREAK
It's one of those ones for Bayern, but Gladbach won't care. The visitors have been up against it all half, surviving a couple of disallowed goals against them and seeing Sommer pick off a couple of decent stops. Cue an Upamecano miskick before the break and Thuram nips in to net his third of the season.
GLADBACH HIT THE FRONT !
Football. Incredible. Bayern have been lining up to score all game and Thuram has gone and stunned the hosts on the counter. Upamecano is at fault, hacking wildly at a dropping ball inside his own half. Thuram still has plenty of work to do once he's snaffled possession but the French forward races through and finishes with what looks like apparent ease.
GLADBACH SET PIECE
Upamecano upends Thuram and Gladbach have a chance to stick one into the mixer. The Foals do just that, but Bayern clear easily enough.
Situation No goal
Decision No goal
AGAIN NO, MANE
Incredible, Mane has had another one ruled out. The Senegalese attacker has his hands on his head and is wearing a rueful smile.
Decision No goal
GOAL CHALKED OFF
Nope. That one won't count as Sane was in an offside position prior to Mane netting ...
BAYERN BREAKTHROUGH ?
The hosts finally edge in front with Mane tapping in at the far post following a wonderful move ... but wait ...
Speed check: The fastest player in the game after 30 minutes
Davies feeds Sane who beats his first man, flicking the ball up and over, before dropping Itakura on his backside with the most wonderful feint. Itakura recovers to put a block on what would have been a spectacular goal.
SANE SMASHES ONE
Sane teams up brilliantly with Müller before the former wellies a volley not all that far over the crossbar. The home fans likes that link-up play.
STILL BAYERN COME
A dangerous Davies centre is fisted out by Sommer. Scally then clips the ball of Mane's toes after Müller popped a pass into the area.
BAYERN IN FRONT?
Lovely move from Bayern and they finally make the breakthrough with Mane tapping in at the far post ... but wait
COMAN GOES IT ALONE
Coman tricks, turns and generally bamboozles his way in from the right. A pass would look to be the sensible option here, but Coman's not giving this away having worked so hard. He flashes an effort off target and gets appreciative applause from the home support.
SO CLOSE MÜLLER
Kimmich's centre from the set-piece looks like one of those that just needs the slightest of touches to go in. Müller is there to apply said touch, but the Raumdeuter fails to make contact by millimetres.
SCALLY SAVES GLADBACH'S BACON
Pavard launches a very inviting cross to the back stick where Scally gets his noggin to the ball ahead of the waiting Davies. That was a crucial clearance from the USMNT man.
KIMMICH WITH A SNIFF
Kimmich has a pop at the target. Sommer saves with relative ease. This game has had a couple of chances but is just lacking a touch of flow as both sides find their stride.
Plea looks to release Thuram on the counter attack with a chipped pass through the centre and for a second it looks on, until Bayern's central pairing shut the door.
Yann Sommer's got a bit of a sweat on already. Not all that surprising with Gladbach's 'keeper called into action early doors and Bayern pouring forward at will.
EARLY PENALTY APPEAL
Prior to the earlier corner, Mane called for a handball in the area when Itakura slid in to block with his arm out. The ref said nothing doing.
Gladbach rally and come straight back up the other end but Thuram and Plea can't work an opening. Super start to this game ...
SOMMER SAVES GLADBACH
Bayern go straight onto the attack and win a corner. Kimmich takes, Upamecano angles a header downwards and Sommer makes a flying one-handed stop.
GAME ON !
Bayern get the ball rolling and we are underway in the Bavarian capital ...
HERE COME THE TEAMS !
Both sides make their way out onto the pitch in Munich. Who've you got in this one?

SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE
Bayern are unbeaten at home in their last eight games in the Bundesliga while Gladbach haven't lost any of their last five away games in Germany's top division, making this one tricky to predict.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS
Alphonso Davies goes straight back into the side at left-back after missing the 7-0 rout of Bochum. Matthijs de Ligt makes way in the only change from that game. The returning Jamal Musiala joins the Dutchman and Serge Gnabry on the bench. Gladbach's Daniel Farke is without Ramy Bensebaini, so Luca Netz gets the nod at left-back.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING - GLADBACH
