Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
The result means that Bayern move 10 points clear at the top of the league, although second-place Dortmund have two games in hand. Hoffenheim, meanwhile, drop to fifth after Freiburg's late winner against Wolfsburg.
Hoffenheim hold Bayern to a 1-1 draw. The hosts made a bright start to this game: Kramaric and Rutter both went close before Baumgartner gave them the lead with an excellent volley. However, from there Bayern dominated. The visitors piled on the pressure and equalised on the stroke of half-time through Lewandowski's header. And the second half continued in the same vein. Gnabry hit the post, Muller had a shot brilliantly cleared off the line and Musiala could only find the side netting after rounding Baumann. Nevertheless, the hosts defended bravely and held on for what could be an important point.

90' Chance! The hosts break again as Bebou surges down the right flank. His cross finds Larsen unmarked, but he can only head it straight at Neuer from eight yards!
88' Hoffenheim are looking to slow the game down at every opportunity as they look to cling onto a crucial point.
86' Chance! Coman swings in another inviting cross and Choupo-Moting glances it agonisingly wide of the far post!

M. Sabitzer
J. Musiala
81' Musiala also heads off with Sabitzer coming on.
E. Choupo-Moting
T. Müller
81' This time Bayern make two changes. The first sees Muller head off for Choupo-Moting.
81' Bayern work a corner short and Sane's cross eventually finds Sule at the back post. However, the defender's volley is knocked behind.
79' SAVE! Akpoguma sends a clever pass down the line for Larsen, who jinks his way towards the byline. Larsen cuts it back perfectly for Stiller, whose eight-yard strike is pushed away by Neuer!
77' Bayern have thrown everything at Hoffenheim in this half, but they've yet to find that precious second goal.
75' BLOCK! A brilliant dummy from Lewandowski releases Muller with a clear shot at goal. Muller's strike beats Baumann, but Posch races back to slide in and clear it off the line! Bayern will be wondering how they aren't ahead.
K. Akpoguma
P. Kadeřábek
74' Kaderabek also makes way with Akpoguma taking his place.
J. Bruun Larsen
C. Baumgartner
74' Hoffenheim make two changes as they look for more energy in the final 20 minutes. The first substitution sees Baumgartner make way for Larsen.
72' Hoffenheim need to settle. Bayern pressure has forced two mistakes in two minutes that have led to clear chances!
70' Chance! Baumann passes it straight to Musiala, presenting Bayern with a huge chance! Musiala rounds the goalkeeper before rolling it into the side netting from a tight angle!
68' Off the post! Gnabry snatches possession away from Raum and finds himself clean through on goal at an angle! The attacker surges into the box before slamming a low strike across goal and against the post!

Yellow Card
66' Posch is booked after tripping Muller.
65' Coman's 25-yard strike is easy for Baumann to grasp.

D. Geiger
D. Samassékou
61' Samassekou heads off with Geiger taking his place. The midfielder was on a yellow card and this move will prevent the hosts from a suffering a red card.
61' Musiala dances into the box, but Posch steps in to concede a corner. The hosts repel the resulting set-piece.
60' Hoffenheim make a rare foray forward as Raum sends in a low cross that Kramaric fires at Neuer. However, Raum was offside during the build-up and it wouldn't have counted anyway.
58' Hoffenheim settle the game down with a spell of possession.
56' GREAT SAVE! Kimmich slides Gnabry in behind the defence and the attacker races to the byline before cutting it back to Sane. Sane drills a low effort towards the near post, but Baumann acrobatically tips it behind! The resulting corner amounts to nothing.
54' Hoffenheim are having to absorb plenty of pressure at the start of this half. If they're to get a result today you'd think they'd need to show a little bit more threat on the break.
52' WIDE! Bayern cut through the hosts again as Muller slips Sane in behind the defence. The attacker is driven out wide but his 12-yard strike flashes just wide of the far post!
50' Save! Baumann pushes away Gnabry's low, 20-yard volley! Bayern have made a strong start to the second half.
48' Muller has another goal ruled out for offside. This time the attacker had diverted in Coman's 25-yard strike from an offside position.
I. Bebou
G. Rutter
46' Rutter is replaced by Bebou at half-time.
46' Bayern kick off the second half.
It was a close first half: Hoffenheim produced five shots compared to Bayern's five. If this continues we can expect another thrilling 45 minutes after the break.
It's 1-1 at half-time following an entertaining opening 45 minutes. Hoffenheim more than held their own against the league leaders and started brightly: Kramaric and Rutter both had clear chances to open the scoring. Bayern grew into the game though and Hoffenheim were forced to absorb pressure up until the moment they struck on the break - Baumgartner finished off Raum's cross to give the hosts the lead. However, Bayern responded well and equalised on the stroke of half-time through Lewandowski's header.
45' + 4' HALF-TIME: HOFFENHEIM 1-1 BAYERN MUNICH
J. Kimmich
Assist
45' + 3' It was an inviting delivery from Kimmich, but that goal was all about Lewandowski overpowering the defence to head home.
R. Lewandowski
Goal
45' + 3' GOALL! LEWANDOWSKI! 1-1. Bayern equalise on the stroke of half-time. Kimmich puts in an outswinging corner and Lewandowski climbs over Samassekou to plant a powerful header beyond Baumann and in!
G. Rutter
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Rutter's now shown a yellow card as he stops Coman near the touchline. Lewandowski can't quite control Sane's delivery and the hosts concede a corner.

42' Muller neatly finishes a one-on-one through Baumann's legs, but the flag is up for offside.
40' Sule forces Baumann into a smart save with a header from a free-kick, but it wouldn't have counted. The defender was offside.
38' This period of the first half has proven to be tricky for Bayern again today. They've conceded 10 goals in the last 15 minutes of the first half, no team has conceded more in the Bundesliga this season.
F. Grillitsch
Yellow Card
37' Grillitsch is booked after a cynical foul on Gnabry.
36' Sane's stooping header from 12 yards is comfortable for Baumann.
34' Well, Hoffenheim will be delighted with their work so far. They've had to absorb plenty of Bayern pressure, but a superbly executed counter-attack has helped them take the lead!
D. Raum
Assist
32' Baumgartner found a pocket of space inside the box and Raum delivered the perfect, chipped cross to find his teammate!
C. Baumgartner
Goal
32' GOALL! BAUMGARTNER! 1-0. Hoffenheim take the lead. The hosts sweep forward as Kramaric feed Raum near the byline. Raum sends in a precise cross and Baumgartner acrobatically guides it beyond Neuer and into the bottom corner from eight yards!
D. Samassékou
Yellow Card
30' Samassekou cynically stops Sane from driving through midfield with a high foot. He's deservedly shown a yellow card.
30' Chance! Rutter rides the challenge of Hernandez and continues into the box before blasting over from 12 yards! The striker could easily have gone down then and given the referee a difficult decision to make.
29' Muller pokes it in from close range following a neat cut-back from Gnabry, but it won't count. Gnabry is pulled up for an offside and the goal is instantly ruled out.
27' Stiller hooks a speculative volley from 25 yards, but it's straight at Neuer.
25' Raum gets to the byline but his cross flicks off Pavard, before drifting away from the cluster of attackers waiting for the delivery.
23' The visitors continue to push for an opener. This time, Sane swivels 30 yards from goal and screws a speculative effort well wide.
21' WIDE! Grillitsch heads behind another dangerous cross from Coman. The resulting corner drops to Sane on the edge of the box and the attacker bends a 25-yard strike narrowly wide of the far post!
19' Bayern continue to grow in confidence as they enjoy a long spell of possession inside their own half.
17' SAVE! Coman chops in from the left and curls in an inviting cross. Muller nips in front of his marker to nudge an awkward effort at goal from five yards but Baumann is able to get down low and push it wide!
15' Bayern are beginning to settle after a shaky start - the hosts will have to be extremely wary about going behind against the run of play.
13' Close! Gnabry races down the right flank before whipping in a dangerous low cross that Vogt deflects narrowly wide of his own post! The resulting corner amounts to nothing.
10' Save! Bayern make their first real foray forward with an intricate move. Eventually, Coman chips it to Gnabry who lashes a fierce 12-yard volley that Baumann beats away!
8' Hoffenheim seem fired up for this game and they've made Bayern uncomfortable so far. If Kramaric could have finished off either of his chances, they'd already have the lead.
6' HUGE CHANCE! Sane gets shrugged off the ball and the hosts sweep forward against a depleted Bayern defence. Baumgartner picks out an unmarked Kramaric inside the box and the striker jinks inside of Pavard before lashing a powerful eight-yard strike that Neuer pushes away! The rebound returns to Kramaric but Sule charges his next effort down.
4' This time Raum pounces on a loose ball inside the Bayern half, but again the visitors scramble to contain Hoffenheim. It's been a promising start from the hosts.
3' Rutter wins possession high up the pitch and drives into the box. However, Hernandez manages to stand him up and dispossess Rutter before a chance materialises.
1' Hoffenheim kick off the first half.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
