    • Bayern Munich
    • Borussia Dortmund
    • 90+2' The full-time whistle goes at the Allianz Arena, and it ends 1-1 between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, with Toni Kroos's opening goal cancelled out by Mario Gotze's strike for the visitors. Both sides are content with their displays, and it was an enthralling contest. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+1' Both sides press forward desperately in the final minute of this pulsating match, with Bayern on the ball through Ribery once more.
    • 90' Schieber comes on to replace Gotze, who netted the equaliser in this match for Dortmund.
    • 89' Now Gomez ghosts in at the back post and almost bundles it into the back of the net, but cannot quite do so. It's a chaotic finale to the second half of this match.
    • 88' Mueller goes very close again for Bayern as he almost catches out Weidenfeller with a looping shot towards the far corner of the net, but the goalkeeper just manages to get his fingertips to the ball!
    • 87' Kroos races forward and beyond the Dortmund back four, but his shot is lacking in power and Weidenfeller can collect.
    • 86' Mandzukic makes way for Mario Gomez, who will get the final four minutes of this match.
    • 85' What a run from Mueller, who beats the Dortmund defence and drives a low shot towards the far post, but it zips agonisingly wide!
    • 84' Ribery attempts a through ball as Mueller makes the run, but he plays the pass slightly too late and the offside flag goes up.
    • 83' Further reports on Badstuber suggest that he has torn his cruciate knee ligaments, which is extremely bad news for Bayern.
    • 81' Felipe Santana is the man to come on for Subotic, and Dortmund very nearly concede with 10 men on the field as Mueller shoots wide after forcing his way through.
    • 79' Subotic limps off to the touchline after taking a knock, and he may well have to be substituted as Klopp acts quickly.
    • 77' This match is poised for an intriguing finale now with the scores level, and we have seen two brilliant goals already.
    • 75' Ivan Perisic replaces Jakub Blaszczykowski for Dortmund - their first change.
    • 74' GOAL! It's another cracking goal as Gotze takes a deep delivery from a corner down on his chest, and proceeds to lash the ball into the bottom corner of the net in empathic fashion! Dortmund are level.
    • 72' Dortmund are applying real pressure now with Bayern inviting it by sitting deep.
    • 71' Ribery blasts a wild shot way over the crossbar as he attempts an effort from the edge of the box.
    • 69' Dortmund break from deep through Bender, but Bayern are now content to sit deep and allow the visitors to take the initiative.
    • 67' GOAL! What a goal for Bayern as Mueller finds Kroos, who jinks inside two challenges before lashing the ball beyond Weidenfeller and into the far corner of the net! It's a goal worthy of the contest, and separating the two sides!
    • 65' Schweinsteiger wins a free kick at the expense of Gotze, and Bayern are piling on the pressure now.
    • 63' Mueller is absolutely furious as he is bundled over in the box, but the referee doesn't want anything to do with it.
    • 61' Gundogan fouls Martinez, and it's very scrappy again right now as both sides battle away furiously in midfield.
    • 59' Reus whips over a pinpoint cross from the right, and Gotze heads on target from the middle of the penalty area with Neuer making the save.
    • 57' Dante does very well to concede a corner with alert defending as Gundogan puts him under real pressure.
    • 55' Mandzukic tries his luck from the edge of the Dortmund box, but his right-footed shot is saved by Weidenfeller with relative ease.
    • 53' Reports are coming out that Badstuber's injury was to his cruciate knee ligaments. If so, that is not at all good for the defender.
    • 51' What a miss from Hummels! Gotze dinks a precise ball forward from a free kick as Hummels catches out the Bayern defenders with an early run, but he cannot meet it on the volley with just the goalkeeper to beat!
    • 49' Dante handles as he looks to prevent Bender from scampering through, and that was pretty cynical if he meant it.
    • 47' Reus almost gets in at the back post as he looks to meet Bender's cross from the right, but he cannot quite keep his footing.
    • 46' The second half is under way at the Allianz Arena, and neither manager has deemed it necessary to make any changes at the break.
    • 45+1' The half-time whistle goes at the Allianz Arena, and it's goalless between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. It's been an enthralling first half, but neither side has found a way through as yet.
    • 45' There will be just one minute of added time at the end of this frenetic first half.
    • 43' Reus stings the hands of Neuer with a fierce left-footed volley, and it's a magnificent strike which forces the Bayern keeper into a solid save to his right.
    • 42' Piszczek makes ground down the right once more, and he drifts a deep cross to the back post where Gotze almost gets on the end of it on the stretch.
    • 41' Schmelzer wins the ball back for Dortmund superbly as Kroos attempts to advance beyond the halfway line.
    • 39' Bender nips past Martinez, who rather crudely brings the Dortmund midfielder down.
    • 37' It was hard to see what the problem was for Badstuber there, but it seemed innocuous. Boateng is the replacement, and he slots in like-for-like.
    • 35' Jerome Boateng replaces Holger Badstuber because of an injury, and it looked to have been his hamstring.
    • 33' Mandzukic does superbly to swivel past Subotic, who commits a foul as he is too late into the challenge.
    • 31' Dante commits a foul as Lewandowski wins another free kick, and Bayern are suddenly under the cosh.
    • 29' Reus unleashes a fierce shot from range, but he drives the ball wide as the Bayern defence parts.
    • 27' Lewandowski wins a free kick out on the right for Dortmund, and neither side is able to really exert their dominance.
    • 26' Mandzukic fouls Hummels, and it's got rather scrappy recently after a frenetic start.
    • 25' Gotze cannot find a way past Dante, who defends very well and shepherds the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 23' Neuer's distribution continues to be tested as the hosts play the ball back to the goalkeeper at every opportunity.
    • 22' The home fans are really enjoying how their side have started this match, and both sets of supporters are making incredible noise.
    • 21' Ribery is rampant in this match so far, and he flies foward before being fouled by Hummels.
    • 19' Dortmund are enjoying a five-match winning streak against Bayern, who are looking very strong this evening so far.
    • 17' Ribery draws a foul from Piszczek out on the left for Bayern with more fine footwork, and Bayern are on top here.
    • 16' Toni Kroos attempts a through ball in for Mandzukic, but he's ruled very slightly offside. Right call.
    • 15' Schmelzer fouls Mueller as the Bayern man skips past and draws the foul with good footwork.
    • 14' This time it is Kroos's turn to fly forward and shoot wide of the near post after trickery from Ribery in the build up. Both teams are trying their luck from distance early on.
    • 12' Blaszczykowski has a shot from the edge of the Bayern box, but this one drifts wide too!
    • 11' Mueller drives a fierce shot wide of the near post, and that never troubles Weidenfeller.
    • 10' The game finally settles down a bit as Bayern pass the ball around at the back.
    • 9' Neuer is forced to dive to his right to collect the ball as Reus charges down the left once more and continues to cause havoc with a shot to the near post.
    • 8' Mueller makes a fine run into the Dortmund box, but Subotic makes a stunning last-ditch challenge to concede a corner - it had to be perfect, and was!
    • 7' The resulting corner is poor from Schweinsteiger, but Bayern are quickly back on the ball through Alaba.
    • 6' Schweinsteiger wins a corner for the hosts with an enterprising run down the right, and Bayern have six players in the box.
    • 5' Gotze is battling away furiously in the final third as he scraps for the ball, and the pace of the match is incredibly fast early on!
    • 4' Reus is presented with the ball as Neuer makes a poor clearance straight to the Dortmund forward, but he and Lewandowski cannot combine to make the goalkeeper pay for his mistake!
    • 3' Subotic rises imperiously to head clear from the resulting set piece, and Klopp is very animated as he applauds the defender.
    • 2' Ribery does brilliantly to zip past Piszczek, and he is tripped as he is about to cross as he earns a free kick.
    • 1' The first half is under way, and Bayern immediately settle as the hosts stroke the ball around at the back.
    • 17:25 We are just five minutes from kick off now at the Allianz Arena, and the atmosphere is absolutely incredible in the stadium. The players make their way out, and we are all set for kick-off.
    • 17:20 "My aim is for us to extend our lead at the top of the table. It is a prestige duel between the league's top two teams. I hope my team is aware that it needs to come up with an above-average performance," Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said.
    • 17:15 Saturday's clash against third-placed Dortmund, 11 points adrift, is not only vital in Bayern's bid to end a two-season silverware drought. They are also eager to snap Dortmund's five-match winning streak against them as they clinched back-to-back league titles and a German Cup last season with a 5-2 demolition of Bayern.
    • 17:10 Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben is still battling to get fit and misses the season's biggest match. Dutch international Robben has been dogged by a string of injuries again this season but his team has surged to a 10-point lead at the top with 12 wins in 14 matches for the best start of the Bundesliga's 50-year history.
