That's all for today, goodbye!
Despite the draw, Bayern remain at the top of the Bundesliga table after Borussia Dortmund drew 3-3 to Stuttgart. Hoffenheim move up to 13th in the table and host FC Koln in their next league game while Bayern travel to Mainz.
Bayern were the better side in the first half and got their reward in the 17th minute as Pavard poked the ball through Baumann's legs. Coman's initial effort was going wide of the post but the defender reacted quickly to take a touch and score. Hoffenheim did not take a single shot in the first period as Matarazzo's side found it very difficult to move the ball forward against the Bayern press. The visitors played the second period with a lot more attacking intent, but were still on the back foot for most of it. Kramaric then produced a moment of magic in the 71st minute as his free-kick curled in off the post, despite a touch from Sommer. Pavard thought he scored a second soon after, but he was offside from De Ligt's flick-on as the match finished 1-1.
90' + 5' Hoffenheim are fully focused on defending as they smash the ball out of their box and toward Sommer. Bayern do not have long left to get a winner.
90' + 3' CHANCE! Gnabry has a great chance again for Bayern, but he slips while shooting in the box and Baumann collects the ball.
S. Rudy
D. Geiger
90' + 1' Rudy comes on for Geiger in the Hoffenheim midfield.
T. Bischof
I. Bebou
90' + 1' Bischof comes on for Bebou as Hoffenheim add more pace for a potential counter-attack.
90' There will be a minimum of five additional minutes.
88' CHANCE! Gnabry has a big chance to put Bayern back in the lead, but he misses the target completely! He cuts onto his left and aims for the far corner but leans back too much and shoots over the bar.
86' Hoffenheim are defending deep and in numbers to try and secure at least a point. Bayern are struggling to make space for a shooting opportunity.
84' SAVE! Baumann makes another save to keep the scoreline level! Tel is through on goal and shoots to the goalkeeper's left, but Baumann dives quickly and parries the ball away.

78' Hoffenheim are being pinned in their own half at the moment as Bayern are pushing hard for a goal. They know they cannot afford to drop points in this title race.

D. Upamecano

70' Pavard is holding his ribs as he walks off the pitch. It is unclear whether he will continue.
69' Pavard is on the ground and in a lot of pain as the physios come on to help him.
67' Angelino now makes a good block to stop Gnabry from having a clear shot at goal. Bayern are putting a lot of pressure on Hoffenheim now.
66' SAVE! Baumann makes a great diving save to stop Cancelo from scoring! The Portuguese international strikes the ball from outside of the box and it looks to be going into the bottom left corner, but the goalkeeper tips the effort around the post.
64' The midfield is becoming a lot more open as Hoffenheim commit more players forward in order to try and equalise.
S. Nsoki

50' Bayern look very assured on the ball to start this second half. Hoffenheim are trying to engage with the hosts higher up the pitch but are struggling to do so.
48' Muller is once again shouting at the referee after Akpoguma pulls him to the ground. The referee does not give Bayern a free-kick.
46' Baumann is called into action straight away in the second period as Coman shoots low and hard at the goal. The goalkeeper is equal to the attempt and makes a comfortable save.
46' Bayern get the second half underway at the Allianz Arena!
Bayern seem very comfortable in this game, but a one-goal lead is never safe. Hoffenheim will need to start taking more risks and attacking with more players if they want to make a comeback in this match.
Bayern were the better side in the first half and got their reward in the 17th minute as Pavard poked the ball through Baumann's legs. Coman's initial effort was going wide of the post but the defender reacted quickly to take a touch and score. Hoffenheim did not take a single shot in the first period as Matarazzo's side found it very difficult to move the ball forward against the Bayern press.
43' Bayern win the ball in the opposition half but Muller fails to capitalise on the chance as his pass toward Gnabry is far too powerful and goes to Baumann.
41' Kramaric bursts into the final third after a long pass from Baumann. Cancelo reads the danger quickly and puts in a great sliding tackle to stop the attack promptly.
39' Bebou does well to take on De Ligt and win a corner. Angelino takes the set-piece but it comes to nothing for Hoffenheim.
37' Hoffenheim are trying to press higher up the pitch and they win the ball back after a poor pass from Cancelo. However, Kramaric dwells on the ball for too long and Bayern win it back.
35' Muller is not happy with the referee after he feels he should have a penalty. The official disagrees as Hoffenheim come away with the ball.
33' Hoffenheim have conceded 25 first-half goals in 28 games, only Hertha Berlin (30) and Bochum (28) have conceded more in the Bundesliga this season.
31' Muller rises highest from Kimmich's corner but he fails he hit the target with his attempt. The hosts will want to score a second goal before the break.
29' Hoffenheim have a chance to counter after a loose touch from Pavard, but Bayern get numbers back quickly and force the away side to pass backwards.
27' A wayward kick from Sommer gives Schalke the ball in a good area, but Bayern are quick to regain possession. The tempo of the match is slowing down, which is favouring the visitors.
25' Hoffenheim are finally enjoying a good spell of possession but they are playing the ball around the halfway line rather than the Bayern penalty area. The visitors need to start taking a risk or two when attacking.
23' Matarazzo is trying to fire up his side from the touchline but they are finding it difficult to progress forward against the Bayern press.
21' The Bayern fans inside the Allianz Arena are creating a great atmosphere now and their players are feeding off it. Hoffenheim need to find a way to get into this game.
19' Bayern have their tails up now as they look to double their lead. They are committing a lot of players forward as Hoffenheim struggle to retain possession.
K. Coman
17' Coman is in a lot of space outside of the box after Kimmich's corner is cleared away. It looks like he goes for goal but his strike is controlled by Pavard and then finished by the right-back.
B. Pavard
17' GOALLL!!! 1-0 BAYERN!!! PAVARD!!! Bayern open the scoring as Pavard pokes the ball home close range! Coman fires the ball back into the box following a clearance from Kimmich’s corner, and it falls at the feet of Pavard. The defender takes a touch before scoring past Baumann!
15' Hoffenheim have avoided conceding in the first half of each of their last three games for the first time this season. However, Bayern have scored 51 goals before the interval – the league record stands at 52 for an entire season (FC Bayern in 2020-21).
13' Hoffenheim are doing well to make Bayern shoot from outside of the box rather than allowing them to get inside the area and shoot from a good position.
11' Cancelo receives the ball on the left wing and cuts onto his right foot as he tries to find Muller at the far post with a cross. He gets a good amount of curl on the pass but also too much power as Hoffenheim have a goal kick.
9' Bayern are enjoying a lot of the ball as they patiently wait for an opening in the Hoffenheim defence. The visitors are trying to keep a high line instead of dropping deeper.
7' There is a pause in play as Baumgartner receives help from the physios following a clash with Upamecano. The Hoffenheim player is back on his feet and able to continue.
5' Pavard tries his luck from distance but his effort flies over the bar and out for a goal kick for Hoffenheim. Bayern are starting to take control of this game.
3' Both sides are attacking with a lot of intent to start this match as they look for an early goal.
1' Hoffenheim get the game underway at the Allianz Arena!
The players are making their way out of the tunnel and onto the pitch!
Tuchel has only lost one of his 14 Bundesliga games against Hoffenheim (W8, D5), 4-0 at home with Mainz in September 2011 – that remains his biggest defeat at home as a coach in professional football.
Tuchel makes three changes from the side that beat Freiburg as Upamecano, Goretzka, and Coman come in for Davies, Musiala, and Mane. Matarazzo makes two changes as Kabak and Stiller replace Vogt and Becker in the starting 11.
SUBS: Luca Phillip, Ermin Bicakcic, Sebastian Rudy, Thomas Delaney, Kasper Dolberg, Finn Becker, Robert SKov, Stanley Nsoki, Tom Bischof.
Hoffenheim (3-5-2): Oliver Baumann; Ozan Kabak, John Brooks, Kevin Akpoguma; Pavel Kaderabek, Andrej Kramaric, Dennis Geiger, Angelo Stiller, Angelino; Ihlas Bebou, Christoph Baumgartner.
SUBS: Sven Ulreich, Alphonso Davies, Bouna Sarr, Daley Blind, Ryan Gravenberch, Mathys Tel, Noussair Mazraoui, Jamal Musiala, Josip Stanisic.
Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Yann Sommer; Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Matthijs de Ligt, Joao Cancelo; Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Kingsley Coman, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane; Serge Gnabry.
Hoffenheim come into this match with great confidence as three consecutive wins have taken them out of the relegation zone and into 14th. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team have scored seven goals in those three games, having just scored twice in their previous five. A win could take Hoffenheim seven points clear of the drop zone.
Thomas Tuchel will want his side to make a statement win today after a difficult week both on and off the pitch. A 3-0 defeat to Manchester City was followed by a dressing room bust-up between Leroy Sane and Sadio Mane, which saw the latter banned for this fixture. The reigning champions are on good form in the league, winning five of their last six games.
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the Bundesliga fixture between Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim.
