The visitors made a positive start to the match, and could have taken the lead after just four minutes as Medhi Benatia headed wide from a Xabi Alonso corner.

Dinamo almost took a shock lead moments later, as Ante Coric picked out Josip Pivaric, who was denied by a good save from Bayern keeper Sven Ulreich.

Franck Ribery - in his first start following an ankle injury - forced a save from Dinamo keeper Eduardo from the left, before the Frenchman hit a tame effort straight at the shot-stopper after some good work from Robert Lewandowski.

The hosts continued to look dangerous on the break, and almost found the net on 25 minutes when Domagoj Antolic picked out El Arbi Hillel Soudani in a good position, only for the forward to be denied by Ulreich.

Dinamo missed a good opportunity to take the lead on the stroke of half time, as Soudani headed wide from a free kick, leaving Ulreich escaping punishment for standing off his line.
