Minute   Description
88' SAVE!! A wonderful save from Fahrmann keeps the score at 3-0! Thiago spreads the ball wide to Muller in space on the right-hand side and the German international drills a low cross into the path of Rodriguez who opens his body up and guides the ball towards the near corner from 12 yards out, but Fahrmann gets down quickly to his left to keep the effort out.
87' Thiago Alcântara gets yellow.
Schalke win a free-kick following a foul on Bentaleb by Thiago and the referee deems the foul serious enough to warrant a yellow card.
85' Rudy produces a lovely turn to spin away from Goretzka midway through the Schalke half but Schalke, who look as though they’re playing five at the back now in a damage limitation strategy, have enough men around the ball to just about sniff out the danger.
82' Bentaleb is now penalised for a high boot just inside the centre circle, but Bayern are in absolutely no rush to take the free-kick.
80' Vidal is penalised for a foul on Konoplyanka just in front of the dugouts, where both managers are still patrolling their technical areas despite the result appearing to be confirmed.
78' F. Di Santo enters the game and replaces G. Burgstaller.
A third and final change for Schalke too now and it’s Franco Di Santo who comes on to replace Burgstaller, who’s worked hard as the lone striker.
77' M. Hummels enters the game and replaces Javi Martínez.
A change for Bayern now as former Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels comes on to a slightly frosty reception, with Martinez going off.
75' A. Vidal has scored a goal for Bayern München! Assist by J. Rodríguez.
James has been outstanding on his full Bundesliga debut today and that moment of magic showed exactly why Bayern brought him into the club from Real Madrid.
GOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!! Vidal surely wraps up the three points for Bayern!! James shows exceptional footwork just inside the penalty box before lifting a delicate pass into the middle of the area, and Vidal runs onto it before side-footing a first-time volley past Fahrmann from 10 yards out.
73' Bayern are knocking the ball around with ease now but the home fans are still making plenty of noise and trying to give their side a lift ahead of the final few minutes.
71' A half-chance for Bayern now as the game starts to open up as Muller gets in behind the Schalke defence inside the right-hand edge of the penalty area, but his well-struck volley is always unlikely to test Fahrmann from such a tight angle and he watches it sail over his crossbar.
