Commentary

Minute   Description
88' There's still a thrust from Bayern to find a fourth goal as we approach the dying minutes of the game here at the Allianz Arena. Ribery has been at the centre of a lot of the hosts' best play in this second half.
87' B. Gorka enters the game and replaces F. Holland.
Schuster makes his third and final change of the game for Darmstadt this afternoon as Holland, who worked hard in midfield for the visitors today, comes off in place of Gorka late on.
86' CHANCE! Lewandowski almost grabs his second of the game as he races through on goal but misses the target from close range as he skips past a challenge from Garics inside the penalty area.
84' R. Lewandowski has scored a goal for Bayern Munich! Assist by F. Ribéry.
Ribery registers the assist for Lewandowski's strike as Bayern go 3-1 up here against Darmstadt. The French winger picks out the Poland forward with a cultured cross from the left-hand side.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL!! It's 3-1 to Bayern! Game, set and match for Guardiola's men as Lewandowski ghosts into Darmstadt's penalty area and taps home from Ribery's low cross from the left with aplomb.
83' Lewandowski surges forward down the left-hand side after being fed in by RIbery but with little on for the striker, he turns back around past two Darmstadt shirts and ensures Bayern maintain possession.
81' Xabi Alonso enters the game and replaces A. Robben.
Guardiola makes his third and final change of the game for Bayern today as Alonso comes on in place of Robben, who missed a great chance to score in the first half but has otherwise been bright for the hosts.
Darmstadt are pushing more men forward now as time ticks on in the second half. They've worked their socks off today and, with nothing to lose now, they've opened up a little bit more in hope of finding a lucrative equaliser.
79' A short suspension in play occurs as Kimmich goes down holding his face. The defender challenges for the ball in the air with the gangly Wagner and comes off second best as their heads clash together.
77' Bayern are knocking possession around comfortably at the moment in the knowledge that they are marching towards another three points in the Bundesliga. Darmstadt, having chased shadows for most of the second period, look jaded.
75' Costa bends in a decent corner towards the near post as Muller brings possession down well for Bayern, but almost clears the danger for Darmstadt as he clips a wayward cross out of the danger zone towards the left flank.
73' M. Sailer enters the game and replaces S. Sirigu.
Schuster makes his second change of the game for Darmstadt this afternoon as Sirigu, who set up his side's opener with a great cross in the first half, comes off in place of Sailer.
Darmstadt have put their bodies on the line brilliantly for long spells of the game but a second for Bayern had been coming for a while in truth. The visitors still have all 11 players on the pitch but it's been backs-to-the-wall stuff for the entire second half for them.
