Thanks for joining our commentary today. Until next time, goodbye.
Both teams return to league action at the weekend. Bayern host Bochum in the Bundesliga on Saturday, while United travel to face Burnley on the same day.
Bayern kick off their Champions League campaign with a 4-3 victory over Manchester United in a thrilling contest at Allianz Arena. A terrible mistake by Andre Onana allowed the hosts to take the lead through Leroy Sane before they extended their advantage as Serge Gnabry found the net. Rasmus Hojlund got United back into the game in the second half with his first goal for the club. But, Harry Kane scored from the penalty spot after Christian Eriksen was penalised for handball. Casemiro threatened to set up a tense finale, only for Mathys Tel to add a fourth for the German outfit. In the dying seconds, Casemiro notched his second of the game, but it was too late for Erik ten Hag's men.
Bruno Fernandes
90' + 5' Fernandes blasts his free-kick towards goal before Casemiro heads it into the net.
90' + 5' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! CASEMIRO GETS A SECOND GOAL!!!!! 4-3!!!! United score a third as Casemiro is in the right place at the right time to guide Fernandes' blast from the left flank into the back of the net. There's not much time left for United, but they haven't given up.
90' + 4' Laimer brings down Garnacho on the left edge of the box. United will have one final chance for a consolation.
J. Kimmich
90' + 2' Kimmich lifts a fine throughball over the top for Tel to collect and score.
M. Tel
90' + 2' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! TEL NOTCHES BAYERN'S FOURTH!!!!! 4-2!!!! The home side end the game as Tel blasts an effort past Onana from close range. Kimmich floats a ball over the top that Tel takes in stride and hammers past Onana before the keeper can react. Game over.
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
A. Martial
88' Martial guides the ball towards Casemiro, who does the rest with a sharp finish from the floor.
88' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! CASEMIRO GETS ANOTHER ONE BACK FOR UNITED!!!!! 3-2!!!! Casemiro produces a great finish on the floor to scoop a low strike into the net to give United hope. Rashford and Martial combine to find the Brazilian in the box. He falls down as he tries to guide a strike towards goal, but it falls kindly for him to shoot on the deck and he connects with his left foot to beat Ulreich.
T. Müller
H. Kane
87' Kane makes way after another Bayern goal. Muller enters the action for the closing stages.
M. Tel
L. Sané
87' Sane is withdrawn after a brilliant performance after notching the Bayern opener. Tel replaces him.
84' Rashford angles a dangerous cross to the back post from the right flank for Garnacho's run. The United man could set up a tense finish, but he can only help the ball behind for a goal-kick.
83' Choupo-Moting twists and turns in the United box and finds space to shoot on his left foot, but Onana holds his strike. United will be wondering if only he did that with Sane's effort in the first half.

F. Pellistri
81' Garnacho enters the action to replace Pellistri for the visitors.
A. Martial
R. Højlund
81' Hojlund makes way after notching his first United goal. Martial replaces him in the final third.
80' CHANCE! Bayern keep flooding forward in numbers. Coman is played into space on the right flank and he drives a low strike at goal from the angle, but Onana makes a solid stop.
78' SAVE! Onana produces a fine save to turn away Choupo-Moting's blast from the edge of the box behind for a corner. It probably won't make him feel better, but it was still a great stop.
77' Laimer finds space down the right flank, but his cutback into the middle is worked away from Kane and Choupo-Moting by Martinez.
E. Choupo-Moting
J. Musiala
75' Musiala makes way after an excellent outing and is replaced Choupo-Moting.
73' Bayern are controlling the ball to frustrate the visitors. If anything the home side are looking for further goal to cap an emphatic result.
71' United are showing no signs of being able to get back into the game. They had a huge boost through Hojlund's early strike, but it proved to be a false dawn.
S. McTominay
C. Eriksen
69' McTominay replaces Eriksen in the United midfield.
68' Kane advances towards the edge of the United box, but Martinez puts his body on the line to prevent his strike reaching the target.
66' Bayern are in complete control of the game. United have been their own worst enemy today making basic mistakes at the back.
64' CHANCE! Sane lines up a strike at goal from 20 yards and the ball dips at the last second forcing Onana into action. He pushes the ball away from the net, although straight into the middle of the area. Lindelof reacts ahead of Kane to turn the ball behind.
K. Coman
S. Gnabry
63' Coman enters the action to replace Gnabry in the final third after a productive performance.
L. Goretzka
Yellow Card
62' Goretzka is booked for his part in the melee with Martinez.
Lisandro Martínez
Yellow Card
62' Martinez clatters into Kane on the sideline and then is involved in a little bit of afters with Goretzka. He gets booked for his part in the melee.
62' SAVE! Kane looks for his second of the night as he latches onto Musiala following a driving run by the midfielder, but Onana punches away his strike at the near post.
60' WIDE! Rashford uses his pace to burst past Laimer down the left flank before he cuts the ball back to Reguilon. The left-back shoots first-time, but drags his effort wide of the right post.
58' Kane almost threads the needle to release Sane in the United box, and only a sliding intervention from Martinez stops it from reaching the winger.
56' OFF THE POST! Bayern come with inches of a fourth goal as Sane sees his right-footed strike hit the post and bounce clear after combining brilliantly with Musiala in the final third.
H. Kane
Penalty Goal
53' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! KANE CONVERTS THE SPOT-KICK!!!! 3-1 BAYERN!!!! The hosts restore their two-goal advantage as Kane holds his nerve from 12 yards. He buries his right-footed strike low and hard into the bottom-left corner giving Onana no chance.
52' PENALTY TO BAYERN! The referee overturns his decision after looking at the screen on the side of the field. The ball strikes Eriksen's arm in an unnatural position and the official points to the spot.
51' PENALTY SHOUT! Bayern appeal for a penalty as Upamecano heads the ball against Eriksen's arm. The call is no on the field, but VAR will have a look.
50' Musiala latches onto an offload from Sane and bursts into the inside-left channel. He shapes to shoot, but sees his effort deflected behind by Dalot.
M. Rashford
49' Rashford works the ball to Hojlund in the penalty area before the forward does the rest.
R. Højlund
49' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! HOJLUND GETS HIS FIRST UNITED GOAL!!!!!! 2-1!!!!! United are back in the game as Hojlund's strike is deflected past Ulreich. Rashford breaks into the box and squares the ball back to the forward. He takes aim on his left foot and it deflects off Kim and squirms under the Bayern keeper to find the net.
46' We're back under way at Allianz Arena.
United need a response at the break otherwise they're heading towards a third-straight defeat in all competitions. Onana's mistake has summed up their recent form, and they now have to show character to dig themselves out of a hole.
Bayern hold a 2-0 lead at the break against Manchester United in their Champions League clash at Allianz Arena. The visitors should have taken the lead through Christian Eriksen, but he saw his close-range effort saved by Sven Ulreich. The deadlock was broken courtesy of a terrible mistake by United keeper Andre Onana, who spilled Leroy Sane's strike into the net. The home side extended their advantage as Serge Gnabry found the net four minutes later. Bayern are in command at the interval.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
45' INCHES WIDE! Bayern almost have a third as Sane curls his left-footed strike inches wide of the left post. He drifts inside from the right flank and is always looking for a left-footed strike. Sane curls his effort towards goal, but Onana watches it just wide.
43' Sane looks for space for another strike at goal following good work between himself and Musiala in the final third, but the visitors hold firm.
41' Goretzka lines up a strike at goal from 25 yards, but his effort is charged down. Bayern recycle possession and Musiala makes another run into the inside-left channel, only to see his cutback cleared on this occasion.
39' Bayern are playing to their strengths now. As United have to commit more bodies forward, the hosts can use their pace on the break to create more chances.
37' WIDE! Dalot breaks down the right flank and delivers a good cross into the box that Hojlund rises to attack, but he glances his header wide of the target.
36' Fernandes tries an ambitious effort from distance as he looks to bring United back into the game, only to launch his attempt well over the top.
34' CLOSE! Rashford plays Reguilon into space in the inside-left channel and he pulls the ball back across the face of goal, but there's no United player there to convert the opening as it trickles behind for a goal-kick.
J. Musiala
32' Musiala produces a great run into the inside-left channel before picking out Gnabry with a fine cutback to allow the winger to score.
S. Gnabry
32' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! GNABRY MAKES IT TWO!!!!!! 2-0 BAYERN!!!!!! The hosts double their advantage as Gnabry places a left-footed strike into the bottom-right corner. Musiala causes havoc down the left flank with a surge into the box. He gets the better of Dalot before he picks out an unmarked Gnabry, who buries the opportunity.
32' Upamecano is played into trouble by Goretzka, but he holds his composure to take a neat touch away from Rashford.
30' Bayern will be elated to be ahead as they've not created a great deal in the final third. United now need to rally in difficult circumstances to avoid another defeat.
H. Kane
28' Kane produces a sharp back heel to find Sane with a one-two before the winger's shot is helped into his own net by Onana.
L. Sané
28' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! ONANA SPILLS SANE'S SHOT INTO THE NET!!!!! 1-0 BAYERN!!!! The home side receive a gift from Onana as he spills Sane's tame strike into the back of the net. The winger cuts inside to play a one-two with Kane before firing at goal on his left foot. The effort is tame and should be saved, but Onana turns the ball into his own net. A nightmare for the United keeper.
26' Sane has space for a break into the United half and he hangs onto the ball even though he has support. Reguilon tracks his progress and slides to knock it away from the winger.
24' Kim looks to release Davies down the left flank, but the full-back is caught offside. Bayern are struggling to sustain possession.
22' Gnabry tries to surge his way through the middle of the United defence, but Martinez puts in a last-ditch challenge to halt his progress.
20' BLOCK! Kane sends Musiala into the final third and the midfielder goes for a first-time strike to angle his attempt across the face goal. Lindelof tracks him all the way and deflects it behind.
17' SAVE! Rashford makes a burst down the left flank and cuts back away from Laimer. He opens up room to shoot at goal on his right foot, but Ulreich gathers his strike with ease.
15' Reguilon has a burst at Upamecano down the left flank and he wins a free-kick as the defender nudges him to the ground.
12' Bayern have not been able to establish themselves in the early stages of the contest. Kane has been very quiet in the final third.
10' United play the ball short out from the corner as Rashford combines with Eriksen to allow him to deliver a curling cross to the back post, but Ulreich makes the early decision to punch it clear.
9' Reguilon goes for the give and go with Rashford to find space down the left flank, and he wins a corner off the legs of Upamecano.
7' Laimer looks for the early ball behind the United defence for Sane, but on this occasion the winger is flagged offside.
6' United press down the right flank and win another corner, but Martinez is penalised for a shove on Kimmich in the penalty area.
4' CHANCE! Eriksen opens up the Bayern defence with a weaving run and sends a cross to the back post. Davies produces a brilliant tackle at the back post to prevent Pellistri firing home, but the loose ball falls to Eriksen. He shoots first-time, but Ulreich spreads himself to make a vital save.
3' Laimer releases Sane down the right flank and he bursts into the inside-right channel, winning a corner off the legs of Martinez.
1' We're under way at Allianz Arena.
The players are out so we should be under way shortly.
United have made one change to their side that was beaten by Brighton in their last outing. McTominay drops out of the team and is replaced by Pellistri in an advanced role down the right flank. McTominay has to settle for a place on the bench along with Garnacho.
Bayern have made one change to their side from their draw against Leverkusen last time out. Musiala returns to the side in the final third to replace Muller in the role just behind Kane, who spearheads the attack.

BAYERN MUNICH (4-2-3-1): Sven Ulreich; Konrad Laimer, Kim Min-Jae, Alphonso Davies; Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Serge Gnabry; Harry Kane.
Manchester United have made a poor start to their season by their standards and are in dire need of a positive result to turn the momentum around. Although the Red Devils did beat Wolves and Nottingham Forest in the Premier League neither were convincing results, while defeats to Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Brighton last time out have put Erik ten Hag under the spotlight. The Dutchman needs a strong effort from his team tonight to start their campaign in Europe on the front foot.
The contest brings back memories of the famous 1999 Champions League final between the clubs as United struck twice at the death to produce a remarkable win. Bayern will want to set a marker down early in the competition against the Red Devils, and they did beat them in their last meeting in 2014 at the quarter-final stage. Thomas Tuchel's men have been in impressive form in the Bundesliga heading into the game, winning three out of their last four matches, although their last outing resulted in a thrilling 2-2 draw against Bayer Leverkusen.
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League clash between Bayern Munich and Manchester United at the Allianz Arena.
