    • 87' To take a peek at the latest photos from around Europe, click here.

    • 69' Credit to Cluj, they've come out fighting in this second half after a limp first 45.
    • 68' Rada rises to meet an inswinging free-kick and hits the post! Great effort and an escape for Bayern!
    • 66' How's this for a scoreline with a little under 30 minutes to play: Zilina 0-7 Marseille
    • 65' Costa plays in Traore who, with his back to goal, tries to find a team-mate ghosting into the box but his pass is blocked.
    • 64' Cluj's next Champions League fixture is a trip to Basel.

    • 58' Kroos requires treatment on the sidelines after clashing with team-mate Panjic.

    • 40' Cluj done the double last season, winning their third Romanian cup as well as the league.
    • 39' Here's bcfcconhart's prediction: "5-0 Bayern Gomez scores 3, Schweinsteiger scores 1, Kroos 1"
    • 38' Cluj are giving Bayern far too much time on the ball. The visitors are playing it around in the final third with ease.
    • 37' Traore fouls in the centre circle to give Bayern a free-kick.
    • 36' Cluj corner. It's deep to the back post and Traore rises but doesn't see the ball coming and it bounces off the forward for a Bayern goal-kick.
    • 35' Gomez attempts to latch onto a neat through ball but Stancioiu is off his line to get there first. It looks like he tok a knock en-route but is soon back to his feet.
    • 33' It's all Bayern - with everything coming down the right - and surely only a matter of time before a third. The Cluj defence went to sleep for the first two.
    • 32' Stancioiu is called into action, rushing off his line to clear.
    • 31' Pranjic's corner is hoofed clear for a Bayern throw near the flag.
    • 30' Altintop, causing problems again on the right, attempts to fire in a low cross but it's blocked for a corner.
    • 29' Schweinsteiger's booking means the German international will miss Bayern's visit to Roma on November 23.
    • 28' Bastos sees yellow for a late challenge.
    • 27' Cluj earn a corner on the left. Culio swings it into the near post and Cadu is on hand to try and trn it goalward but his shot is easily blocked.
    • 26' Cluj have never lost by more than two goals at home in a UEFA competition. Will Bayern put them to the sword tonight?
    • 25' Schweinsteiger is booked.
    • 24' Altinop swung in a superb deep cross from the right which Lahm calmly headed back across goal and there was Gomez to make it two!
    • 23' GOAL! Bayern double their advanatage - and it's Gomez again!
    • 22' The game is being played at a surprisingly low tempo. That will surely play into Bayern's hands.
    • 21' Any more predictions? Post them below.
    • 20' Cluj won the Romanian league last year for only the second time having previously triumphed in 2007/08.
    • 18' Here's what Adel had to say in the comments section below: "Bayern will win this one 3-1 Gomez Muller Kroos." Can you do the lottery numbers as well, Adel? Although Muller will need to make an early appearance from the subs bench.
    • 17' Stancioiu rises well to claim Schweinsteiger's deep cross.
    • 16' Costa goes for goal from the free-kick 25 yards out but it's easily collected by Butt.
    • 15' Costa breaks through the middle and is hauled down by Ottl, who is the first into the referees book. Yellow card.
    • 14' Bayern will qualify from Group E if they win tonight. So far, so good.
    • 13' That was a really smart move by Bayern. Lahm was fed in down the right channel and squared a low cross, with Ottl seeing his shot parried into the path of Gomez, who fired home from close range.
    • 12' GOAL! Bayern take the lead through Gomez!
    • 11' It's Bayern's turn to keep possession, but they're unable to press forward.
    • 10' Follow the scores from all tonight's Champions League games here.
    • 9' A poor touch by Van Buyten gifts Cluj a throw-in. It's taken quickly and Butt has to be sharp off his line to punt clear.
    • 8' Lahm slides in with a well-timed challenge to stop Culio in his tracks on the left.
    • 7' Cluj are happy to knock the ball around the back, patiently looking for an opening.
    • 6' Cluj reached the Intertoto Cup final in 2005/06 - their best progress in a European competition.
    • 5' Bayern make their first foray forward but it ends with Piccolo seeing the ball out for a Cluj goal-kick.
    • 4' Culio fires in a cross from the right but it's easily collected.
    • 3' Neither side is able to grab hold of the game in these early stages.
    • 2' Cluj are playing in their traditional maroon home strip, while Bayern are in their white away kit.
    • 1' And we're off!
    • 19:42 The teams are emerging from the tunnel...
    • 19:40 This is the second time Romanian champions Cluj have competed in the Champions League. They were knocked out at the group stage in 2008/09. Bayern won the competition in three times on the bounce in 1974, 1975 and 1976 before adding a fourth triumph in 2001.
    • 19:35 Cluj's Cristian Panin and Emil Dica will incur a ban with their next bookings, while Bastian Schweinsteiger and Danijel Pranjic will be walking on egg shells for Bayern.
