      FULL-TIME! Bayern close out a narrow 1-0 win over an out-of-sorts Atletico, but nothing changes in Group D at all, as we knew. Lewandowski's free-kick was the only bit of inspiration, on what was a fairly dull and tepid affair. That's all that we have time for, we hope to see you again next time.
    • 0'
      HALF-TIME! Bayern go into the break with a 1-0 lead, given to them by a bit of magic from Lewandowski. Aside from that, the hosts have had possession without really threatening, with Atletico coming to rue two missed chances early on that fell to Carrasco.

      After a mini-crisis during the majority of November, Bayern have clicked back into form with back-to-back wins recently. A 2-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen was their first positive result in a few matches for Die Roten, with a victory at the weekend over Mainz ensuring that their confidence continu

      Hello and welcome to live coverage of Atletico Madrid's tough away visit to the Allianz Arena, where Diego Simeone's men fortunately don't require a result to progress into the next round of the Champions League. Bayern Munich have also managed to push clear of third-placed Rostov to secure their ow
    • 1'
      We are underway in the first half of the final Champions League Group D game! There's nothing to play for in terms of finishing position, but these two teams will want to show their pedigree before heading into the knock-out stages.
    • 2'
      Robben cuts infield from the right-hand side, but sees a shot blocked with his left foot. The hosts win a corner, which is half-cleared to the edge of the penalty area, with Douglas Costa then firing the rebound over the crossbar. Bright start from Die Roten!
    • 4'
      Douglas Costa manages to drill a cross in from the left-hand side, but Oblak punches half-clear. Bayern have been pushing players forward and look to be in the hunt for a breakthrough goal immediately. Atletico can't seem to get out of their own penalty box.
    • 6'
      The hosts open play out to the left-hand side, before Douglas Costa goes on a driving run infield, but the Brazilian runs into traffic. Bayern are dominating the early stages and have Atletico camped back deep in their own half. Any breaks from the away side have come to absolutely nothing.
    • 8'
      Lewandowski tries to slide a pass in behind for Costa to chase, but Godin makes a good interception. Atletico look to counter, with Griezmann and Carrasco trying to link up on the edge of the area, but the Belgian is denied the chance to shoot.
    • 10'
      Good save from Neuer! Koke feeds a pass through to Carrasco but the Belgian's low drive is denied by the Bayern goalkeeper. That is the first time that the LaLiga club have looked dangerous at all.
    • 12'
      Bayern work their way from right to left, probing for a gap. Douglas Costa tries to link up with Lewandowski, who looks to flick a pass around the corner, but the execution from the Poland international isn't right. Ancelotti is looking rather worried on the edge of his technical area.
    • 14'
      The home side continue to dominate possession, as may have been predicted before this match, with a few fouls creeping in. Lucas is penalised for sliding through the back of Robben, but the young Frenchman avoids getting the first booking of the night.
    • 16'
      The away side work their way down the left, with Carrasco picked out in the penalty area by a cross from Lucas. The Frenchman finds his attempted target, but the Belgium international guides a curling shot into Neuer's arms. Two great opportunites on the counter for Simeone's men, but they haven't t
    • 18'
      The home side are remaining patient, with Douglas Costa the only bright spark. The Brazil international gets down the left and bends in a cross, but Savic heads away at the near post. Ancelotti's men just keep retaining possession, but they're not going anywhere with it. Atleti are defending charact
    • 20'
      Douglas Costa drills a shot goalwards from the left-hand side, but his attempt from a tight angle is beaten away by Oblak. Moments later, a diagonal pass is clipped into the Atletico penalty area, but the visiting goalkeeper is off his line in a flash to make a good catch.
    • 22'
      Vidal releases Costa down the left-hand side, but the Chilean's pass is slightly too heavy. Bayern maintain their pressure, but Robben is forced inside, before play is fed out to the same left wing yet again. Vrsaljko is being given a stern test in these early minutes, but the Croatian is currently
    • 24'
      Lewandowksi manages to tee Vidal up on the edge of the penalty area, but the Chile international can only scuff a terrible effort wide of the left-hand post. That is a big chance, but the ex-Juventus midfielder fluffed his lines entirely. Godin is now down with an injury problem.
    • 26'
      Rafinha drives down the right-hand side at pace, but Bayern can't seem to exploit any pockets of space on the break. They're being slowed well by Atleti, who have looked comfortable with everything being played in from of them.

      GOOOOOOOAL! LEWANDOWSKI MAKES IT 1-0! Bayern win themselves a free-kick on the edge of the penalty box, as Carrasco is penalised for clipping Bernat's heels. The ex-Valencia full-back goes down and earns his team a good chance to test Oblak. Lewandowski tries his luck from 18 yards out and bends a w
    • 30'
      Atletico counter and try to carve out a response immediately, but Griezmann is robbed of the ball with ease. Moments later, Carrasco is the target of a looping pass down the left-hand side, but the ball bobbles straight through to Neuer.
    • 32'
      A beautiful free-kick from Lewandowski has been the only moment of real quality in this match, and Atletico will be kicking themselves that they squandered two early chances. The only good news for the away side is that Godin is moving well after going down with an injury earlier on.
    • 34'
      Alaba manages to hack a half-clearance away from deep within his own penalty box, before Saul fails to do anything with the rebound other than taking an awful touch. Narrowly over 10 minutes remain in this first half, but Bayern will be happy to keep dominating the ball. Bernat bends a cross in from
    • 35'
      Lewandowski goes down in the Atletico penalty area, claiming a push from Savic, but the Polish striker appeared to be making an absolute meal of that challenge. The referee waves play on. Atletico respond with a break down the left, with Robben forced to foul Lucas and give away a free-kick in a goo
    • 37'
      Thiago tries to clip a throughball over the top for Robben to chase, but the Spaniard's pass is awful and Savic intercepts with ease. Bayern try and threaten moments later, but a long-range strike doesn't trouble Oblak whatsoever.
    • 39'
      Atletico win a free-kick deep on the right-hand side, which is clipped into the penalty box by Gabi. It fails to beat the first man, however. The away side have really disappointed going forward so far tonight, they've only looked dangerous when Lucas has overlapped down the left.
    • 41'
      Bayern enjoy a lengthy, patient spell of possession, with Ancelotti's men happy to sit on this lead. Douglas Costa goes on a mazy dribble infield, which allows for Bernat to overlap, but Die Roten switch play to the other flank instead. Costa is eventually the man to whip in a delivery, but Godin he
    • 43'
      Bayern win a corner on the left-hand side, but a near-post delivery is headed away well with Lewandowski lurking. We're into the final five minutes at the Allianz Arena, and Simeone's men look happy to see it out with the scoreline as it is. Bernat bends in a delivery from deep on the same flank, bu
    • 45'
      There is one minute of stoppage time in the first half. Atletico try to threaten down the right-hand side, but Vidal makes a simple interception on the edge of his own penalty area to deny a throughball from Saul.
    • 46'
      We are back underway in the second half at the Allianz Arena! Bayern currently hold a narrow 1-0 lead, given to them by Lewandowski, but Atletico won't be wanting to end the group game with a whimper.
    • 48'
      Great defending from Savic! Godin makes a rare mistake, which allows for Lewandowski to get in behind him. The Poland international twists and turns, in an attempt to get into the box, but the ex-Man City defender reads the situation well and robs the ball off his opponent's toes.
    • 50'
      Bayern settle back down into their rhythm, with the hosts easily able to stroke the ball around. Alaba does well to nod a clipped throughball away from Carrasco, as the Belgian continues to look like Atletico's most likely route back into this fixture.
    • 52'
      Bernat overlaps down the left and combines with Douglas Costa. Bayern open play out from flank to flank, searching for a gap, before a low pass is drilled into Lewandowski's feet. The ex-Lech Poznan striker tries to flick a pass into an onrushing teammate, but instead Oblak comes out and gobbles up
    • 54'
      Saul manages to win the away side a free-kick in a very deep area, which enables Gabi to lift a long ball down the flank - but Griezmann can't do anything with it. Bayern respond with a break, and Robben is slotted in behind by Renato Sanches, but the Dutchman cuts onto his left foot and then sees a
    • 55'
      Robben wants a penalty, and you can see why! The Netherlands international saw his heels clipped in the box, but chose to stay up, with the referee letting the foul slide. From the resulting corner, Douglas Costa is picked out on the edge of the box, but the Brazilian can only dip a half-volley stra
    • 57'
      Simeone is already readying some substitutes on the sideline, as Atletico have been fairly dreadful tonight. Defensively, they have been managed to hold Bayern at arm's length for long periods, but on the attack only Carrasco has offered anything. Correa and Gameiro could be seeing action sooner rat
    • 59'
      Bayern are utterly dominating this game, with Atletico chasing shadows in the midfield third. Oblak is forced into another save at his near post, this time from Bernat, as the Spaniard cracks a low drive straight at the Slovenian.

      Robben goes down in the box for Bayern, claiming that he had been subject to another foul inside the area, but once again the referee isn't interested. The home fans are clearly under the impression that their Dutch star is not getting the rub of the green tonight, judging by the grumbling from the

    • 63'
      Atletico just can't seem to string more than five passes together, in what has been a truly dismal performance. Costa gets to the left byline for the home side and cuts back a delivery, but it is hacked away at the near post by Savic. Ancelotti's men are asking all the questions.
    • 65'
      The hosts are just asking Atletico to chase, and Simeone's men have got no choice but to comply. Some scrappy defending denies Thiago the chance to dance into the box, with a resulting break down the right from Gameiro dealt with brilliantly by a pacey recovery from Alaba.
    • 67'
      Bayern continue to try and force their luck down this left-hand side, with Vrsaljko not being afforded the chase to get forward and support any Atletico attacks. The visitors are pegged back and just limiting the damage that could be done to them. It has been a troubling performance from them so far

      Atletico win themselves a free-kick on the left, as Rafinha goes in late on Lucas, with the French left-back continuing to be one of Los Colchoneros' main attacking outlets. The initial set-piece is half-cleared, with Thomas firing the rebound a long way wide of Neuer's left-hand post.
    • 72'
      We're into the last 20 minutes in Bavaria, where Simeone is going crazy on the sidelines. He is urging his players to press high and put in some effort, and it appears that if Atletico don't come out of this contest with at least a share of the spoils, the Argentine coach will be livid.
    • 74'
      Lewandowski is the target of a long ball in behind the Atletico lines, but Oblak comes out to dribble the danger to safety. The away side try and break, with Gameiro stabbed towards the lefy byline, but he can't put in a telling cross. Bayern instead respond with a counter of their own, but a cross
    • 76'
      Bayern are trying to get back on the front foot, but Atletico look to be a little more fierce when looking to get forward on the counter. Gameiro releases Griezmann down the right, with a cross eventually whipped in by the Frenchman, but Neuer is off his line to capitalise on a poor touch from the e
    • 78'
      Narrowly over 10 minutes remain in this contest, and Bayern almost made it 2-0! Thiago is picked out by a great cut-back from the left byline, but when it looked easier to stroke home from close-range, the ex-Barcelona midfielder lifts an awful finish over the bar. What a miss.

      Atletico earn themselves a free-kick on the left-hand side, which is clipped into the penalty area by Gabi. Godin manages to flick it on, but an acrobatic over-head kick from Douglas Costa clears the danger. The away side have improved a little since the hour mark, but an equaliser still looks unlik

      Atletico are only managing to get the ball into the box from free-kick deliveries, as the away side continue to labour their way forward.

      We're into the last few minutes at the Allianz Arena, and it appears that Bayern will be able to close out a narrow win. Lucas lifts a cross in towards the back post, but a volley from Gameiro is thumped straight at Neuer.

    • 89'
      Rafinha is forced to make a sliding intervention inside his own penalty area, before Martinez is fouled to make his first contribution to tonight's clash. Simeone is still gesticulating wildly on the sideline, as he clearly still believes that Los Colchoneros can get something out of this.
    • 90'
      Rafinha comes across to make a great covering tackle, after Renato Sanches was played into trouble in the middle of midfield. Atletico manage to earn a corner from Bernat, who goes down with a spot of cramp. The set-piece comes to nothing.
    • 90'
      Bayern are happy to sit back and leave Muller up top, with Martinez and Kimmich able to contribute more defensively to the hosts' set-up now. Die Roten win back possession and choose to play backwards and sideways at a slow pace in order to see out the win.
    • 90'
