FULL TIME! Bayern win 4-1 against Hamburg. The game looked far more even at halftime, but Bayern’s substitute players handily dominated Hamburg’s. The players exchange greetings on the pitch and both teams seem to part ways in good spirits.
90’ — Süle taps away Hamburg’s last chance at a breakaway. Hamburg cannot score on the corner kick, and the game is over.
86’ — GOAL BAYERN! Müller strikes again. Ribery plays Kimmich in a tidy one-two in Hamburg’s penalty area. On the return pass, Ribery lets the ball roll by straight to Müller who fires it hast the keeper into the left corner of the goal.
78’— Müller narrowly misses a second goal off a cross by Kimmich. Hamburg’s defense breaks up the attack at the last moment.
73’ — GOAL BAYERN! Thomas Müller makes it 3-1, as he slots away a slightly deflected assist from Franzke.
SUBSTITUTION: 17-year-old Joshua Zirkzee replaces Sandro Wagner.
72’ — Kimmich has words with Hamburg’s Janjicic after a scene on the sidelines. They have to be separated.
83’ — SUBSTITUTION: Marvin Cuni replaces Derrick Köhn.
82’ — Ribery passes to Zirkzee out wide on the left. The youngster takes a promising shot, but the angle is just too narrow, and it rolls across the goal and just past the far post.
70’ — Senkbeil makes a strong last-man clearance.
66’ — Now Hamburg make some noise, forcing Ulreich into a rather acrobatic punching clearance.
63’ — Ribery nearly has a chance on goal but can’t quite control the ball well enough to shoot immediately. He passes left to Sanches, but he strikes the near post on a tight shot.
59’ — SUBSTITUTIONS: Thomas Müller, Joshua Kimmich, Maximilian Franzke, Kilian Senkbeil, and Thiago come on for Goretzka, Rafinha, Coman, Mihaljevic, and Rudy.
56’ — Another highlight move: Goretzka brings down the ball in Hamburg’s penalty area and back-heels it to Coman, but Coman’s left-footed shot is caught by the keeper.
54’ — Coman dazzles on the right with a behind-the-back pass to Sanches. Sanches unfortunately blasts the ball forward into no man’s land across Hamburg’s goal line.
50’ — Renato Sanches makes a run at goal, but is narrowly dispossessed just as he goes to shoot. He manages to take a back-heel shot of his own, but the goalkeeper blocks him.
48’ — Samperio wins the ball in the penalty area and creates a dangerous chance.
SECOND HALF SUBSTITUTIONS — For Bayern, Franck Ribery replaces Robben, Sven Ulreich replaces Manuel Neuer, Niklas Süle replaces Awoudja. Coman moves over to the right.
HALFTIME — The half comes to a close seconds after Ito fires a free kick to no one and straight out of bounds. Hamburg have put on a good show, but Bayern’s team of professionals and youth players has maintained an edge, despite occasional mistakes.
41’ — GOAL BAYERN! Sandro Wagner makes it two with style: the movement began when Sanches overlapped with Robben on the right and received the ball wide. Sanches overhits the cross, but it is recovered by Leon Goretzka, who shoots it back into the box to Wagner. Wagner then deftly taps the ball into the net with a leaping back-heel! #WagnerLove
39’ — Sanches checks his man like a hockey player; Hamburg receive a free kick.
37’ — Wagner would like to take that shot back. Wagner looked as if he were doing an impression of Ronaldo in the Champions League semifinals...
36’ — Tatsuya Ito dances his way past Rafinha into Bayern’s penalty area, but he is eventually closed down and dispossessed.
31’ — GOAL BAYERN! (PENALTY) — Gotoku Sakai fouls Kingsley Coman near the goal line inside Hamburg’s penalty area. The referee duly points to the spot. Sandro Wagner converts.
25’ — Hamburg almost make it two goals as Renato Sanches loses the ball and allows Jann-Fiete Arp to fire a dangerous shot at Bayern’s goal. Fortunately, over it.
24’ — GOAL HAMBURG! Hamburg take a 1-0 lead. Ivan Mikaljevic is outmuscled by Jann-Fiete Arp in the penalty area. The failed clearance bounces into the path of an unmarked Lewis Holtby, who draws Neuer toward him and passes to Kheled Narey on his right. Narey puts it away.
22’ — Still a stalemate. Bayern’s Coman and Rudy are pressing ruthlessly in Hamburg’s midfield, but the Dinosaurs are managing to retain the ball fairly successfully.
16’ — Robben cuts left and fires a dangerous shot just wide of the net. HSV swiftly counter and Narey takes a dangerous shot at the near corner that bounces off the post.
Yep, we’re starting the liveblog a bit late today. Apologies!
Some new faces in Bayern Munich’s starting lineup today!
Bayern Munich will return to the field on Wednesday afternoon for another summer friendly in the build up to the new Bundesliga season. Their opponent? The former Bundesliga Dinosaur from the north: Hamburg.
It’s been a wild start for Hamburg in the 2.Bundesliga where they’re already two matches deep into the season. The first match saw Hamburg hammered by Holstein Kiel to a 0-3 scoreline. Then, in the second match, they returned the favor with a 3-0 victory over Sandhausen.
Niko Kovac will use his substitutions liberally in this one as the club is still preparing for Saturday’s first round DFB Pokal match. Don’t expect to see any even remotely injured players get a run out in this one, unless the club is confident in their health.
It’s Bayern time.
Location: Volksparkstadion, Hamburg, Germany
Time: 6:00 pm local time, 12:00 pm EST
