Final score: Bayern Munich 2-2 Spurs, Spurs win 6-5 on penalties.

FT: It’s 2-2. Time for penalties!

84’: Bayern look incredible right now. They may well score before FT.

81’: GOAL! WHAT A STRIKE BY DAVIES! Catch a replay of that ASAP.

76’: Horrible news. Coman comes off with injury, and Alaba goes back to LB. Davies on the LW.

72’: Bad news. Coman has gone down injured after a challenge. It looks bad.

70’: No more child’s play. Muller, Lewandowski, and Coman are all on.

67’: Ulreich gets a good save on Kane’s shot. Otherwise it’s all been Bayern.

61’: GOAL! Arp scores to make it 2-1. Excellent layoff by Davies to set him free.

59’: Goal, Christian Eriksen scores to make it 2-0 to Spurs.

56’: Ulreich gets a save on Son’s shot.

55’: Despite the changes, not much seems to have changed for Bayern. Spurs still have the advantage in midfield, and Harry Kane and Son both seem dangerous.

50’: Bayern have looked positive so far this half. Hopefully they pull one back.

47’: Singh wins a free kick near the box.

45’: We are underway in the second half!

HT; Spurs lead 1-0. Bayern finding it difficult to go forward.

42’: Singh has a nice low shot from distance, but it goes just wide of the mark.

39’: Spurs seem very confident on the ball, and they’re content to just knock it around.

35’: Quiet game for the last few minutes. Singh tries a long shot.

28’: A Spurs free kick hits the wall.

26’: With Corentin Tolisso being the only senior player in midfield, Bayern are struggling against the likes of Sissoko and Lamela.

22’: Bayern get two corners back to back. Can they score?

18’: Erik Lamela scores from the far post. Neuer beaten.

17’: Alphonso Davies makes a good run into the box from out wide, his cross just couldn’t find a man.

12’: Bayern’s youngsters don’t seem out of their depth, which is a good sign.

9’: A cross from Tolisso almost reaches Pavard, it would’ve gone in if he’d made a connection.

5’: Neuer pulls out a huge save on Lucas Moura’s header!

3’: Erik Lamela has the first real chance of the game, as he drifts in between the center backs. He is blocked by Alphonso Davies.

Kickoff: We are underway! With Spurs playing such a strong XI, this promises to be a tough match for the Bavarians. Hopefully Manuel Neuer is up to the task.

Update: Some more info on the personnel situation.

One hour until kickoff: Lineups are out! Kovac has opted for a full B-team. Let’s hope these kids fare well.

It’s time for the final of the Audi Cup! Bayern Munich take on last season’s Champions league runners-up Tottenham Hotspur in a game that will define football for generations. Okay, maybe that’s a bit too much, but this should be a very interesting game.

Niko Kovac has the Supercup looming over the horizon, so he has a decision to make. Should he rest key players in preparation for the Borussia Dortmund game? Or should he give the seniors a run out to build cohesion and see how the team plays against a stern opponent.

In all honesty, the fact that this game comes so soon after the last one doesn’t help anybody. Pochettino will probably be reluctant to give all his star players a run, even though we should expect to see at least Harry Kane or Heung-min Son make an appaearance. Kovac, meanwhile, will have to decide if he wants to give players like Thiago Alcantara or Robert Lewandowski extended minutes, given that they played less than 24 hours ago. In any case, let’s hope this shapes up to be an exciting encounter, and there are no injuries on either side.

It’s Bayern time.
