    • 40' Mueller able to claim the assist for Gomez's second goal of the night with a neat through ball.
    • 39' It is two for Bayern and two for Gomez as he stokes the ball past an exposed Sergio into the bottom corner. Expert finishing after some slack defending from the home side.

    • 37' Bayern continue to flirt with danger in defence with a series of intricate passes on the edge of their own penalty area.
    • 35' Gomez maintains his impressive Champions League record of a goal a game. 5 in 5 from the big German.

    • 24' Another example of cynical foul play from the Italians. Jeremy Menez with the most blatant of ankle taps.
    • 23' Roma finally look to have settled into their stride. Can they follow it up with the opening goal?
    • 22' Fine save from Kraft to deny Greco whose 25 yard strike looked destined for the bottom corner.
    • 21' Lahm opting to play with fire, sending a risky pass across his own goal. Roma get a corner out of it.
    • 20' One more name goes in the book. Philippe Mexes joins Greco and Kroos for a foul on Franck Ribery.
    • 19' Harsh yellow card shown to Kroos for taking the free kick before being prompted by the referee.
    • 18' Greco continue to tread on thin ice as he commits yet another foul. Any more of that and he could be on his way.
    • 17' Danijel Pranjic swings in the resulting free kick but Sergio is quick off of his line to punch clear.
    • 16' Riise guilty of bringing Thomas Mueller down in a threatening position for Bayern.
    • 15' Vucinic tries his luck from distance but troubles no one but the fans behind the goal.

    • 6' Roma of course the ones needing a result tonight with the Germans having already sealed qualification to the knockout stages.
    • 5' Bayern looking more than comfortable in possession.
    • 4' An open start to this Group E game. Just how will the cookie crumble after 90 minutes?
    • 3' First gilt edged chance of the evening goes the way of the home side as Marco Borriello stings the hands of Thomas Kraft in the Bayern goal.
    • 2' Hesitant start for Roma goalkeeper Julio Sergio as he scuffs his first kick but fortunately for him and his team, Bayern are unable to capitalise.
    • 1' The whistle is blown and we are under way at the Stadio Olimpico
    • 19:40 Roma have conceded eight Champions League goals this season, more than they shipped in their eight games the last time they played in the competition (seven in 2008-09).
    • 19:35 Bayern have only lost one of their last five European games away from home in Italy, though this was at Fiorentina in March.
    • 19:30 Roma have lost all three games against Bayern in European competition, with the Germans scoring exactly two goals in each match.
    • 19:25 Bayern ran out 2-0 winners the last time the two teams went head to head on Matchday 1 with goals from Thomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose
    • 19:20 A win for Roma and a draw in the other match would see the Italian side progress to the next stage, but a win for either Basel or Cluj would see qualification go to the final match day.
    • 19:15 Bayern have already qualified for the Last 16 and will win the group unless they lose this match by two goals or more.
