    • Bayern Munich
    • 90+3 FULL TIME Bayern seal the victory after a hard fought match.
    • 90' GOAL! Basel 1-2 Bayern Munich. Schweinsteiger looks to have clinched the points for the Germans as he sneaks in at the far post to divert Badstuber's free kick into the net.
    • 85' SUBSTITUTION for Basel. Benjamin Huggel departs and Genseric Kusunga enters the field of play.
    • 81' Patient approach play from Bayern creates a half chance for Olic but the substitute fires high and wide of the target.
    • 78' Streller goes into the book for scything down Schweinsteiger.
    • 76' Chance for Muller at the other end. The German forward turns neatly on to his left foot but his shot is wayward.
    • 75' A soft free kick goes the way of the home team and Frei is poised to strike from 25 yards. He does so but only gets the ball as far as the Bayern wall who does its job.
    • 74' SUBSTITUTION for Basel. The impressive Shaqiri departs to a standing ovation and is replaced by Australian Scott Chipperfield.
    • 72' Gasps from the home crowd as Gilles Yapi looks to find the far corner but his curling effort drifts fractionally wide of the Bayern goal.
    • 71' Third and final SUBSTITUTION for Bayern Munich. Anatoliy Tymoshchuk on for Klose.
    • 70' Tireless running from Frei earns his side a corner kick which amounts to nothing.
    • 68' Muller twists and turns in an attempt to create space for the cross but his delivery is poor and sails over the Basel goal.
    • 67' Surge of pace from Klose sees him drift past two Basel defenders into the penalty area and take a hopeful swing with his right foot but he only draws a routine save from Costanzo.
    • 65' Dangerous cross from the lively Shaqiri is headed clear but Basel reload and deliver from the opposite flank to find the head of Streller who can only divert the ball into the arms of a grateful Butt.
    • 64' A decent spell of possession allows Lahm to find space on the right wing and his low cross causes mayhem in the Basel six yard box before the ball is hastily swiped clear by Samuel Inkoom ahead of Olic.
    • 62' A much more open game being played in the second half with both sides seemingly not content with a share of the spoils.
    • 60' A cross to the far post finds Frei in space but his speculative left foot volley flies well wide of the left hand post.
    • 58' Schweinsteiger is booked for a tackle from behind.
    • 56' Schweinsteiger involved again as Bayern look to seize the momentum but his illegal use of the arm is spotted by the referee who awards a free kick to Basel.
    • 55' Danijel Pranjic goes into the referee's notebook for a petty foul.
    • 54' SUBSTITUTION for Bayern Munich. Ivica Olic on for Toni Kroos.
    • 53' GOAL! Basel 1-1 Bayern Munich. Schweinsteiger steps up and cooly slots the ball into the bottom right hand corner past Costanzo who dives the wrong way.
    • 52' PENALTY! Muller goes down in the box and the referee points to the spot.
    • 50' Shaqiri is proving to be a real thorn in Bayern's side tonight and stings the hands of goalkeeper Butt with a powerful left foot shot from the edge of the box.
    • 48' Badstuber, guilty of that free kick, is given another chance from a similar position on the right wing but again fails to trouble to Basel defence.
    • 47' Bayern waste an opporunity as a free kick in a threatening area is floated harmlessly into the arms of Costanzo.
    • 45 Substitution for Bayern Munich. Mario Gomez replaces Altintop.
    • 45 The second half kicks off
    • 45+1 Bayern denied a final effort of the half as the referee blows for half time before the Germans have time to take a free kick. Basel lead 1-0 at the break.
    • 44' One minute of first half injury time to be played.
    • 42' Another fine save from Basel goalkeeper Costanzo to keep out Van Bommel's long range effort and is quick to his feet to keep out Klose's follow up but play is called to a halt for offside.
    • 41' A lot more passing from one side of the pitch to the other from Bayern who have been unable to penetrate the Basel backline thus far.
    • 39' Shaqiri finds space on the edge of the box and wastes no time in firing a powerful effort at goal and draws a smart save from Butt.
    • 38' Another foul from Badstuber who is walking on very thin ice after being booked for an earlier offence.
    • 36' Muller looks for strike partner Klose but his lofted ball is overhit and out of reach.

    • 32' Toni Kroos drifts in from the left wing and takes on a speculative shot that Costanzo gathers with ease.
    • 31' Long spell of possession for Bayern but without much attacking intent. Basel looking comfortable in defence.
    • 29' Scenes reminiscent of the World Cup final as a crude challenge from Dutchman Mark Van Bommel goes unpunished.
    • 28' Positive signs again for the Germans as Altintop drives to the by line but his cutback finds only the sidenetting.
    • 27' Basel have the ball in the net again! But the offside flag comes to Bayern's rescue to keep the score at 1-0.
    • 26' Badstuber's hesitancy on the ball results in a desperate lunge and the German World Cup player is shown the first yellow card of the game.

    • 24' Strong hold up play sees Streller earn his side a free kick on the half way line
    • 23' Basel are beginning to worm their way into this game and Shaqiri's fierce ball across the six yard box passes everybody and runs through to safety.
    • 22' Hamit Altintop attempts to shield the ball behind for a goal kick and is left bemused as the referee awards a corner
    • 20' It is clear that Bayern are struggling to come to terms with the shock deficit and for all their possession are being very wasteful in the final third.
    • 19' A real shock for the German side who have had all the play so far. Clinical counter attacking football from Basel.

    • 15' As Basel fail to clear their lines, Daniel Van Buyten has the opportunity to test Costanzo but fires well wide
    • 14' Bayern are appealing for a penalty after the ball brushes the hand of Basel midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri. The Scottish referee is quick to wave away the protests.
    • 12' The visitors are really dominating proceedings here. Basel are struggling to weave their way into this match.
    • 10' Toni Kroos has the first shot in anger and forces a fantastic save out of Costanzo who tips the ball around the post. From the resulting corner the goalkeeper is forced into another save.
    • 9' A neat one-two between Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Muller sees the midfield player surge into the box but his shot is blocked.
