COLOGNE HIT THE BAR

So unlucky, Thielman clatters his header against the bar with Neuer well beaten. With the game gone, Cologne have started to make the right decisions and look dangerous.

68' 

MODESTE SHOULD CLAIM ONE FOR COLOGNE

Modest has been waiting all game for that chance but puts his header over the bar. Neuer looking robust every time he is tested.

65' 

STUFFING KNOCKED OUT OF COLOGNE

Tolisso should claim a second of the match as a corner whips past him. Muller collects a long ball from Neuer and almost tees ups the fourth.

VERY DIFFERENT WAVE LENGTHS

Cologne are full of running but their passing has been very poor. A ball goes straight of play.

56' 

NEUER NOT TESTED

Cologne try for the set-piece routine rather than shot. The sheer presence of Neuer seemed enough to dissuade them. It comes to nothing.

55' 

COLOGNE WITH A DANGEROUS FREEKICK

Tolisso isn't happy after clattering into a white shirt.

51' 

MULLER FREES LEWANDOWSKI

The Poland striker is denied a third Bayern goal when he should have scored, through on goal. It was a tantalising first-time ball from Muller.

49' 

SERGE GNABRY ON THE SURGE

Gnabry plucks the ball out of the air and is unlucky not to find Muller with his cut back. Cologne press but Bayern with the better chances.

48' 

PAVARD DOES JUST ENOUGH

The World Cup winner clears the danger after a low cross.

46' 

COLOGNE ALMOST START WITH A BANG

Hector pushes the ball into a dangerous area but there isn't a Cologne player in sight. They should have done more with an early freekick.

  • 2nd Half
45'

BACK UNDERWAY HERE

Can Cologne claw their way back into this? They will take confidence from their disallowed goal.

45'+2 

BAYERN IN FRONT AT HALFWAY

It's not been convincing but Tolisso's wonderful strike has made it comfortable.

45'+2 

MULLER ALMOST MAKES IT THREE

Cologne just about get it clear after Muller was denied. That really would have put the leaders out of reach.

A chaotic half comes to an end.

45' 

SO CLOSE FOR COLOGE

A chance to claw one back goes wanting as Kilian Duda drags his shot wide. Bayern looked very light at the back.

43' 

COLOGNE BREAK

Cologne should be back in this. It's sloppy passing that lets them down on the break. They are finding the opportunities, but the quality is lacking to make Bayern, who look fallible, really pay.

40' 

BAYERN CORNER GOES CLOSE

Muller does a Muller and tries the lob from a ridiculous angle. Why not?

39' 

FEAST YOUR EYES ON THIS

Tolisso's torpedo for two.

37' 

COLOGNE KNOW THEY NEED TO MAKE A MARK

It's neat, tidy but comes to nothing for Cologne. They are chasing shadows at the moment and expending energy doing it.

32'

COLOGNE 0 - BAYERN 2: UTH OFFSIDE

It's cruel, but after a long check, Uth is judged to be offiside. Cologne sense there's a chance to get back into this however.

30' 

COLOGNE 1 - BAYERN 2: UTH CLAWS ONE BACK

Playing right on the shoulder, Cologne spring clear. Mark Uth was just onside as the ball was popped through to him. He took a touch and finished crisply.

28' 

BAYERN BLUDGEON THROUGH AGAIN

Schwabe does just enough to deny Bayern as they swarm on his goal. They just seem a foot taller and a yard faster than Cologne at the moment.

23' 

FIRST TEST FOR NEUER

Anthony Modeste reminds Manuel Neuer that he is involved in this game with a header on target. Modeste would have been offside, however.

22' 

LEWANDOWSKI JUST MISSES THE PASS

He plucks it out of the air like he is playing in his sitting room in his slippers, but the pass that would have set Gnabry clear is just too casual.

19' 

THE GOAT

Communication is key in any team, and with the stadium close to empty, you can clearly hear the bleating of Cologne's caprine mascot. They are called the 'Billy-Goats' after all.

18' 

WHAT A PARTNERSHIP

COLOGNE FIND SOME RESPITE AS KAINZ BREAKS

A chance to catch their breath, but Bayern squeeze up and force them back.

HUBERS CUTS OUT THE CROSS

Cologne do just enough stop a low Gnabry cross from finding its target.

13' 

BAYERN SENSE BLOOD

Bayern pushing and Cologne already look ragged. Their press is starting to drop.

The ref plays advantage as Duda crunches in. Lewandowski plucks his way through two challenges before slamming the ball home. VAR just checking...

COVID RESTRICTIONS ON THE CROWD

With capacity limited to 750, the ground feels empty. The Cologne crowd doing what they can to bring the noise.

COLOGNE PLAY THROUGH THE PRESS

It's assured stuff as Cologne break the press with some lovely interwoven passing.

Cologne looking to stay tight and then turn up the pressure when they can break. It's high energy stuff. How long can they keep it up?

AND WE'RE OFF

The match is underway here at the RheinEnergieStadion.

14:25 

ALL OF A SUDDEN WE HAVE A TITLE RACE

A wobble from Bayern and a surge from Dortmund have upped the stakes in the Bundesliga.

14:20 

TEN MINUTES TO GO

The teams are out and walming up.

14:16 

THE KEEPER’S OFF HIS LINE

Is there anything better than when a keeper fancies himself as a midfielder? Manuel Neuer reminds us that he’s one of the best.

14:09 

A MODESTE HAUL

With 12 goals already this season Cologne striker Anthony Modeste sits only behind Robert Lewandowski, Patrik Schick and Erling Haaland in the German goalscoring charts.

Lewandowski has scored 20 times already this season, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the nets bulge at either end.

14:07 

A ONE-SIDED MATCH UP

With 14 wins and a draw in their last 15 meetings, Bayern’s record against today’s opponents makes for scary reading.

Bayern will be keen to make a statement to claim the fifteenth after showing a glimpse of weakness last time out.

14:00 

30 MINUTES TO GO

We're just half an hour from kick-off here at the RheinEnergieStadion.

13:52 

LAST TIME OUT FOR BAYERN

An early blip to start the year at home to Monchengladbach slowed their seasonal procession to the title, but they remain three points clear of the pursuing Borussia Dortmund.

Julian Nagelsmann can point to a severe Covid outbreak as an excuse; Marcel Sabitzer filled in at full-back, Steven Ulreich filled the Neuer-shaped gap between the sticks and Malik Tillman started his first ever game for the club.

But Bayern are too strong a squad to have expected to lose and will rage against the prospect of doing so again.

13:50 

LAST TIME OUT FOR COLOGNE

Goals from Anthony Modeste, Ondrej Duda in the first half and a third from Vladimir Darida in the second sealed the points against Hertha Berlin.

It was an impressive performance for a team knocking on the door of the top four. A positive result today would see them wedge a foot in it.

13:45 

BAYERN TO BOUNCE BACK?

The league leaders have looked menacing all season but saw Covid-19 and injuries unveil flaws in their squad.

Manuel Neuer, Lucas Hernandez, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Alphonso Davies and Kingsley Coman were all sidelined as the champions slumped to a defeat at home to Mochengladbach.

They seem to always perform well after a setback however.

13:40 

COLOGNE PUSHING FOR TOP FOUR

Three consecutive victories have seen today's host to just two points off the top four. This season has been a revelation for Cologne, having just avoided the drop last time out by a pair of points.

Steffan Baumgart has maintained their excellent start to the season and made this a team that no one will relish facing.
