Full time: Bayern Munich 0-3 RB Leipzig.
67’ — Goal. Olmo converts from the penalty spot. 3-0.
62’ — Sub: Harry Kane comes on for Mathys Tel! Save US!
45’ — Subs: Mazraoui, Kim, and Coman on for Pavard, De Ligt, and Laimer.
Halftime: Bayern Munich 0-2 RB Leipzig.
44’ — Goal. Dani Olmo makes it 2-0. Yep, expected.
30’ — No goals from Bayern yet and it looks like it’ll stay that way. Can Kane be our coach maybe?
3’ — Goal. Dani Olmo scores to make it 1-0.
Kickoff: We’re underway!
One hour until kickoff: We have lineups! Harry Kane doesn’t start as we expected, but otherwise Thomas Tuchel has some surprises in store. Bayern Munich lines up in what could either be a back-four or a back-three, with Mathys Tel up top and Gnabry, Musiala, and Sane behind him. Joshua Kimmich and Konrad Laimer start in the middle while Kim Min-Jae misses out in favor of Dayot Upamecano.
Neither Choupo-Moting nor Thomas Muller are on the bench.

You know, after all the transfer chaos of the last 48 hours, it’s nice to have games back.
Bayern Munich almost lost the Bundesliga title because of RB Leipzig last season, suffering a crushing defeat that shocked fans and put the coach under major scrutiny. With those memories in mind, Thomas Tuchel will be well aware that he needs his team to come out of the gates firing on all cylinders.
Harry Kane should be eligible to play, but probably won’t because let’s be serious, he hasn’t trained with the team yet. In his place, Mathys Tel will get a chance to prove himself — a good performance here could recommend him for more minutes down the line. Konrad Laimer, meanwhile, will be raring to go against his former employers — ironically he was the one who put the nail in the coffin when these two sides met last time, scoring at the death to make it 3-1. Another one of those incoming?
Whatever happens, this promises to be a major clash. Leipzig, unlike Borussia Dortmund, have always given Bayern trouble in their clashes over the years. In many ways they’re the second strongest team in Germany for the last few years, and this game will show us if Tuchel’s Bayern is heading in the direction we want it to.
It’s Bayern time.
