Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +4 FULL-TIME: BAYER LEVERKUSEN 1-3 BAYERN MUNICH.
90' +2 C. Tolisso enters the game and replaces T. Müller.
A final change for Bayern as they look to run the clock out, with Tolisso replacing Muller.
90' +1 J. Rodríguez has scored a goal for Bayern München!
THREE GOALS, THREE POINTS! Absolutely sublime! James caps off a terrific night with a goal of the highest quality as he places a gorgeous free-kick into the top corner! That truly is a work of art, and it wraps up the points for Bayern!
90' James goes down just outside the penalty area, squarely in the centre of the pitch, as he's caught by Lars Bender. That was an important challenge from the midfielder, as it denied the Colombia international what would have been a clean shot at goal.
88' For a while there Bayern's lead was looking under real threat, but they're looking much more assured now in their efforts to see this through. Victory would widen their commanding lead at the summit to 14 points - a gap that is incredibly likely to be overcome.
86' Bayern doing their best to take the sting out of the match here, working the ball around as they try and stay in possession. Their patience is pulling Leverkusen out of position as the hosts press desperately to win it back. They finally do, deep in their own end, but quickly give it back in the final third following two failed attempts to force their way through.
84' STAT: Leverkusen failed to beat any of their top five counterparts (FCB, S04, BVB and RBL) before Christmas, taking just three of a possible 12 points.
82' Wonderfuly poised at the BayArena for what's shaping up to be a frantic conclusion. The tempo is back in the match as the hosts commit bodies forward, leaving themselves vulnerable to Bayern on the break, which in turn is leaving more room for Leverkusen to attack as the visitors send men forward on the counter.
80' Can Wagner mark his return with a goal? He has an impressive record against Bayern's opponents tonight: Wagner – Bayern’s second-most expensive winter purchase – has claimed more goals and assists against Leverkusen than any other side (6 in 9 outings; 4 goals, 2 assists).
79' S. Wagner enters the game and replaces F. Ribéry.
HERE HE IS! Sandro Wagner is brought on for his much-anticipated return, making his first Bayern appearance since 2007! The striker replaces Ribery for the final 10 minutes.
