FULL-TIME! LOKOMOTIV 1-2 BAYERN

Bayern are made hard to work for a 13th successive Champions League win, but Kimmich’s moment of magic is enough. Two from two in Group A for the holders – job done in Moscow.

89′ TIME ADDED ON

Hansi Flick looks pensive to say the least as the board goes up to indicate four minutes of added time. Bayern lead, but it’s hardly been a vintage display. Still, that is the stuff of champions…

80′ NEUER DOES HIS JOB

Lokomotiv exploit Bayern’s high line once again. Zhemaletdinov sizes up Neuer’s goal, but the Bayern custodian is up to the task. Important save, within seconds of that stunning Kimmich strike.

79′ GOAAAAAL! LOKOMOTIV 1-2 BAYERN

Bayern retake the lead, and boy did they need that! Martinez lays off the ball to Kimmich on the edge of the ‘D’ – he swivels and smashes into the bottom corner. The keeper didn’t move.

78′ WIDE FROM ZE LUIS

Lokomotiv are through on the Bayern goal with a man over. Ze Luis has time to pick his spot – or pass to Zhemaletdinov. He takes the selflish route, and drags his effort wide. Huge chance.

76′ LOKO DOUBLE CHANGE

Zhemaletdinov and Rybchinskii are on for the hosts, with Ignatyev and Smolov making way.

72′ LEWANDOWSKI!

Lewandowski with the header – but it’s straight at Guilherme. The Bayern striker then sizes up a free-kick, which is blocked by Rajkovic. More urgency from Bayern since that Loko equaliser…

70′ GOAL! LOKOMOTIV 1-1 BAYERN

Ignatyev goes over the top for Ze Luis, who is all alone. He plays it into the near post, where Miranchuk applies the touch to fire past Neuer.

69′ COMAN OVER AND OUT

Coman’s last involvement is to balloon an effort over from eight yards. Douglas Costa replaces the French winger.

64′ PENALTY NOT GIVEN!

Lewandowski goes to ground and thinks he has a penalty. He’s about to take, before the referee consults the VAR. The decision is reversed due to an offside in the build-up against Coman.

61′ ALABA COVERS

Ze Luis tears forward into the Bayern area, but his decision to delay the shot allows the back-tracking Alaba to intercept. Superb defending.

57′ ALMOST TWO!

Gnabry opens up the Loko defence and finds Kimmich in the area. He fires goalwards, but Rajkovic puts himself in the firing line to deny a certain goal. Guilherme is so impressed he gives his teammate a peck on the cheek. That’s love.

55′ ZIPPY COMAN

Bayern build patiently, before Coman injects a bit of trademark pace into proceedings. He goes round the outside, unleashing an effort that very nearly catches out Guilherme at his near post. Bayern dictating the tempo early in this second half…

50′ OVER FROM MARTINEZ

Hernandez clashes with Murilo down by the byline. The referee gives a free-kick to Bayern, which Kimmich takes, finding Martinez, who heads over.

SECOND HALF! LOKOMOTIV 0-1 BAYERN

The ball’s rolling again in Moscow. Martinez and Gnabry have replaced Goretzka and Müller, while Rajkovic is on for the injured Corluka for the hosts.

HALF-TIME! LOKOMOTIV 0-1 BAYERN

Goretzka’s goal is the difference at the break. Coman has also struck the woodwork for a superior Bayern unit.

45′ TIME ADDED ON

Sixty seconds for Lokomotiv to hold out. Pavard crosses for the unmarked Tolisso, who can’t direct his header on target.

43′ CORLUKA CROCKED

Loko captain Vedran Corluka is down, signalling to the bench. It looks like a hamstring strain – he won’t be able to continue, but it looks like the hosts are going to see out the half with 10 men.

42′ NEUER TAKING NO CHANCES

Neuer is called on to tip a shot from Kulikov behind for a corner, which comes to nothing. The Bayern captain would have to be half asleep to be beaten from there.

41′ PAVARD!

Hernandez drives forward, twisting, turning and delaying his cross. He eventually releases it and finds Pavard, who thunders an effort straight at Guilherme.

38′ NO TROUBLE FOR NEUER

Krychowiak fires comfortably wide of Neuer’s goal from 25 yards. The Bayern No.1 hasn’t had all that much to do in Moscow.

36′ ALABA RECOVERS

David Alaba’s first touch evades him, but he recovers his composure before a Loko player can profit. Bayern with 66 percent possession as the Austrian loops a cross into the arms of Guilherme.

27′ NEUER SWEEPS UP

Lokomotiv win a second ball in the middle of pitch and proceed to play over the top of the Bayern defence. The flag stays down as Ze Luis gives chase, but Neuer is out in a flash to clear.

25′ COMAN THREAT

Bayern come again with Coman, but his cross is too close to Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme. The Frenchman is on the receiving end of the champions’ next move as Tolisso pings another ball onto the boot of Pavard. He finds Coman, who fires against the foot of the post. Almost a carbon copy of the opening goal. Bayern are purring…

18′ FRENCH CONNECTION

Tolisso’s passing range is causing Lokomotiv some real problems. He’s always on the look out for fellow Frenchmen Hernandez, Coman and Pavard in the wide areas – and has a habit of finding them!

13′ GOAAAAL! LOKOMOTIV 0-1 BAYERN

Bayern strike first. Pavard pings a superb volleyed ball onto the head of Leon Goretzka, who steers the ball home. Superb diagonal ball to start with from Tolisso – it’s been coming!

10 – OVER FROM HERNANDEZ

Pavard advances up the right and crosses into the box. Lokomotiv clear only as far as Hernandez, who wellies over. Signs Bayern are beginning to click…

8′ LEWANDOWSKI!

Kimmich whips in the ensuing corner, but it takes Lewandowski by surprise and he is unable to manipulate his body sufficiently enough to make something of the opening. Massive let-off for Lokomotiv.

7′ COMAN LIVELY

Kingsley Coman, who scored two and assisted another against Atleti, is making his presence felt whenever Bayern go forward. The Frenchman creates a decent opening for Leon Goretzka, but his effort is deflected behind for a corner.

4′ NEUER SAVES

Anton Miranchuk gets in behind the Bayern defence and crosses for Smolov. He’s unchallenged in the area, but heads straight at Neuer. Can’t imagine the hosts will get many chances like that one…

KICK-OFF!

Bayern get us under way in Moscow
