THREE minutes of added time.
SUB! Chong comes on for Rashica.
GREAT SAVE! This is so open now! Sargent bursts through and gets a shot away inside the box, but Neuer parries it away with a strong right hand and its out for a Bremen corner. The set-piece comes to nothing.
WHAT A MISS! Alaba plays a lovely dinked ball over the top and finds Sane, who squares the ball to the near post but Choupo-Moting hits it over the bar!
WHAT A BLOCK! Bremen with another threatening counter-attack and Sargent gets a shot away, but it was Goretzka who slides in at the vital moment to make a crucial block! Bremen with a corner now, but Bayern clear.
OVER! Alaba plays fine cross into the area and Lewandowski rises highest to meet it, but he heads it over the bar.
YELLOW! For Bremen's manager Kohfeldt for his complaints over a foul earlier on.
Lewandowski appears to have pulled up with a slight knock after a challenge on Gebre Selassie. He seems ok to play on, though.
Bayern are moving further up the pitch but they are not able to get many shots away. Bremen have defended admirably in this game.
- OffKevin MöhwaldWerder Bremen
- OnJean-Manuel MbomWerder Bremen
SUB! Mbom comes on for Mohwald, who has had a quiet game so far.
- OffLeonardo BittencourtWerder Bremen
- OnFelix AguWerder Bremen
SUB! Agu comes on for Bittencourt as Bremen look to find a way to swing the momentum back in their favour. It's been all Bayern in this second half.
- OffDouglas CostaFC Bayern Munich
- OnLeroy SanéFC Bayern Munich
SUBS! Bayern are bringing on the big guns. Musiala, Costa and Coman come off for Sane, Gnabry and Choupo-Moting. This could get very interesting...
- GoalKingsley ComanFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Coman scores at the far post! It's a delightful cross from Goretzka who picks out the France international to nod in his first Bundesliga goal of the season.
Coman plays a low cross into the area but Bremen clear their lines. Bayern are camped inside Bremen's half but they are unable to find a way past the visitors' resolute backline.
Bittencourt tries to set through Neuer but he sprints off his line, as he characteristically does, and smashes the ball clear.
SAVE! Coman gets a shot away from inside the area but Pavlenka is able to bat it away. Bayern are applying real pressure now.
OFF THE BAR! Douglas Costa's spectacular left-footed strike from the edge of the box comes off the underside of the woodwork, off the line and back out again! What an effort that was and how desperately unfortunate for the Brazilian that it didn't go in!
RASHICA MAKES A MESS OF IT! The forward is completely free on goal after being set through by Sargent, but he hesitates at the crucial moment and Boateng makes a vital interception to ensure the Kosovan's strike hits the side netting! That was a glorious chance for Bremen to extend their lead! They may not get another like it...
- 2nd Half
Back on for the second half!
Can Bremen stop Bayern from making it 11 wins in a row and upset Hansi Flick in his 50th competitive game in charge? Maybe. Lets see what happens...
- End of 1st Half
Well well well... Bayern started so strongly but it is Bremen who have the lead at the break thanks to Eggestein's lovely finish.
ONE minute of added time at the end of the first half.
- GoalMaximilian EggesteinWerder Bremen
GOAL! Just on the stroke of half-time Bremen take the lead! A throw-in goes straight to Sargent who spins Martinez. The American then squares the ball for Eggestein who calmly slots it past Neuer's outstretched right arm into the bottom corner! The visitors are in front and perhaps deservedly so, they have managed this game really well.
- Yellow cardLudwig AugustinssonWerder Bremen
A great run into the area by Musiala before Toprak, who has been a rock at the back so far, makes a good challenge.
YELLOW! Pavard is fouled by Augustinsson and he goes into the book. It was a definite yellow.
Musiala, who has shown some bright moments, picks the ball up on the edge of the area and has a shot on the run, but it takes a deflection and goes out for a corner. This time Lewandowski flicks it on but no one is there to meet it. Bremen have been pinned back in the last ten minutes or so.
Alaba's cross to the near post is headed behind by Gross and Bayern have another corner. Costa plays an outswinger into the centre of the box looking for Boateng, but Toprak heads clear.
Coman's low cross looking for Lewandowski is headed away before Toprak eventually boots it clear.
- Yellow cardLeonardo BittencourtWerder Bremen
YELLOW! For Bittencourt, his first of the season, for a poorly timed sliding challenge on Musiala. Bayern have a free-kick in a good position but it comes to nothing.
Musiala gets his first shot away, but the teenager's effort from close-range is blocked and the 17-year-old is denied a third goal this season.
Pavard floats a ball into the area but Pavlenka can collect. Bayern came out of the traps quickly in this one but they are now struggling a bit to break through this Bremen backline. The visitors have had the better goalscoring opportunities as we hit the half-hour mark.
Coman is down on the floor after a tough but fair challenge from Toprak. Bayern could be forced into another first-half substitution here... although Sane and Gnabry are not exactly bad options to have off the bench.
BIG CHANCE! Rashica finds space down the left and plays a dangerous cross to the far post. Bittencourt is there but he hits his half volley into the side netting! Bremen are looking good now.
Toprak with a wayward pass. Bremen have grown into the game but Bayern's attacking line has looked sharp so far.
- OffLucas HernándezFC Bayern Munich
- OnLeon GoretzkaFC Bayern Munich
SUB! Goretzka comes on for Hernandez so there will be a reshuffle with Martinez now in at central defence and Alaba has moved to left-back.
- Yellow cardBenjamin PavardFC Bayern Munich
WHAT A DOUBLE SAVE! A great cross into the box is met by Sargent and he stabs it on goal in front of his marker, but Neuer is there to make a great save with his legs before making a stunning fingertip stop to deny Augustinsson on the rebound!
Hernandez's lower back injury picked up a few minutes ago seems to have flared up again. He will probably go off soon.
SHOT! Plenty of zip on Coman's 25-yard strike, but it skids off the slick surface and wide of Pavlenka's right post.
Hernandez is down in some discomfort after landing awkwardly. He went over the top of Gebre Selassie when the pair went for an aerial duel. He's back up on his feet now, though which is a relief.
Bayern are all over Bremen and Gross is forced into conceding another corner for the hosts. Costa plays it short to Alaba who crosses it in, it's flicked on by Boateng but nothing comes of it.
CHANCE! Costa whips a really dangerous ball into the box, but Friedl does excellently to get back and nod behind for a corner. That looked destined to end up in the Bremen goal with Lewandowski lurking.
The corner, flicked on at the near post by Muller, goes out for a goal-kick.
Bayern are already applying plenty of pressure. Costa, free on the left, tries to peg the ball back for Lewandowski but he overcooks it and the ball goes out of play.
Bayern counter with Coman bombing down the right flank, but his cross is claimed by Pavlenka.

Here he is... Musiala.
Will today be a game where we all say "remember the name"? That, we will find out.
A win for Bayern Munich today and they will guarantee to finish the weekend two points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table.
It's hard, maybe even impossible, to see anyone stopping them from winning the league this season. The 29-time Bundesliga champions showed they were a cut above Dortmund before the international break.
Ah yes, that familiar derby name...
