B Leverkusen v Bayern München - as it happened
FT: Leverkusen 2-4 Bayern!! Full-time at the BayArena!! Bayern win easily here in Leverkusen. Alario put Leverkusen ahead, but Coman, Goretzka and Gnabry killed the contest before the break. Lewandowski made it 1-4 before Wirtz got a consolation. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
Bayern have a corner with 60 seconds left.
Four added minutes, by the way.
The home jinx is happening again in the Bundesliga. No home teams are winning.
Lovely goal by Wirtz! The 17 year-old gets a consolatiion. Volland gives the ball to Paulinho, he then passes to Wirtz who cuts inside before curling one into Neuer's bottom right hand corner! Nice goal.
Diaby, Leverkusen's best player, does brilliantly once again down this near side, but the end product is lacking. His pass cannot find Paulinho in the middle and it's cleared.
Bayern sub: Hernandez on for Davies.
Bayern are just keeping the ball in Leverkusen's half now. This game has been done since half-time really.

HT: Leverkusen 1-3 Bayern!! Half-time at the Bayarena! Bayern started slowly and Alario punished them after 10 minutes thanks to a VAR intervention. But then, Bayern fought back. Coman, Goretzka and then Gnabry after a defensive mix-up has seen the Bavarian outfit score thrice in 18 minutes. It's a long way back for the hosts. Back soon!
Two added minutes. This should be easy for Bayern.
It's 1-3!! What's the goalie doing!!! Kimmich sends a hopeful long punt forward, Hradecky comes out, then stops, then hesitates and Gnabry just chips it over the keeper. He was in no mans land! What was he thinking? Cheap goal to concede.
Glorious opportunity for 1-3!!! A Bayern move sees Gnabry all on his own and Hradecky makes a brilliant save with his leg.
Goretzka makes it 1-2!!! Leverkusen see the corner cleared and Bayern rip them apart on the counter. Lovely team play ends with Muller flicking the ball to Goretzka who knocks to Hradecky's left and into the corner. I think the GK could have got more than a hand to that, to be honest.

Lewandowski!!! Alaba plays a pinpoint pass to the Pole in the area, he chests it down and then skews it well wide.
