Read how the action unfolded below.

2pmGood afternoon and thank you for joining Sports Mole for live text commentary of the Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Hamburger SV at the Allianz Arena.

2.02pmToday’s meeting sees the Bundesliga leaders Bayern, who are unbeaten in 41 league games, take on Hamburg, who sit 13th in the table.

2.05pmBayern will be looking to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League. They were two goals ahead just 12 minutes into the game, but threw away the lead and were just one goal away from being overtaken in the group.

2.08pmDespite their defeat in Europe, Bayern have won their last seven games in the league and remain unbeaten after their first 15 Bundesliga fixtures. They are currently four points clear of Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the league.

2.11pmBAYERN MUNICH XI: Neuer, Rafinha, Contento, Van Buyten, Dante, Lahm, Thiago, Kroos, Gotze, Muller, Mandzukic

2.12pmHAMBURG XI: Drobny, Rincon, Jansen, Badelj, Tah, Djourou, Arslan, Van der Vaart, Lasogga, Daogari, Calhanoglu

2.13pmBAYERN MUNICH SUBS: Starke, Kirchhoff, Hojbjerg, Alaba, Shaqiri, Ribery, Pizarro

2.14pmHAMBURG SUBS: Neuhaus, Mancienne, Rudnevs, Sobiech, Lam, Jiracek, Tesche

2.17pmThe last time these two teams met, Bayern claimed a sensational 9-2 win, with Claudio Pizarro scoring four of those goals.

2.20pmLast weekend they thrashed Werder Bremen 7-0, to take their tally to 39 goals scored in the league this season.

2.23pmHamburg will be looking to recover from last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Augsburg, but will be well aware of the challenge that faces them today. They have won two of their seven away league games, but face a Bayern side that have won all eight of their home fixtures.

2.26pmPREDICTION: I fully expect Bayern to bounce back from their defeat in Europe with a victory at home today. They have been in stunning form in the league and should stretch their winning run to eight games. Hamburg have leaked goals away from home and I don’t see things being any different today. A 3-0 win to Bayern is how I see this one ending.

4 minYELLOW CARD! Hamburg have picked up their second booking in the opening four minutes, as keeper Drobny is cautioned.

6 minBayern have seen more of the ball in the opening stages of this game, but it has been very scrappy so far, with quite a few late tackles flying in.

8 minHamburg put together a good team move down the right hand side and manage to get the ball back across the box, but there is no one on hand to latch onto it.

12 minDante attempts to find Muller with a low pass from long range, but it is well cut out by the centre backs.

14 minCHANCE! Hamburg register their first shot of the game as Calhanoglu lets fly from long range, but it is comfortable for Neuer who keeps hold of the low strike.

16 minBayern have the ball in the back of the net as Muller latches onto Gotze's through ball, before rounding the keeper and slotting home, but the flag is rightly raised by the assistant.

18 minThe home side are starting to take control of this game, and are working it well between their midfielders, as they look for gaps in the Hamburg defence.

20 minBadelj does well to work himself some space just outside the box, but his strike on goal is poor, and he scuffs it well wide.

23 minBayern are yet to find their usual flowing game, and have given the ball away cheaply in some promising attacking positions.

27 minThe home side win a corner, and it is whipped into the box where Dante meets it, but it is a poor header from the defender and it goes wide of the post.

37 minCHANCE! Kroos takes the set piece and whips in a brilliant ball, that Mandzukic meets in the middle, but his header flashes just wide of the post.

3.22pmThe home side's dominance in the first 45 minutes is underlined by the huge amount of possession they have had. They have seen 77% of the ball, compared to Hamburg's 23%.

3.26pmBayern have yet to really click into first gear, but have done their job so far. As for Hamburg, their manager will be glad that they have fared better than last year's 9-2 mauling, and with the score at just 1-0, there is every chance for them today.

63 minSUBSTITUTION: Goalscorer Gotze makes way, and Ribery is on to take his place.

65 minRibery shows his first flashes of skill since coming on when he weaves his way to the byline and whips in a cross to the back post for Muller. It is slightly too long though, and he can't stretch enough to direct an effort on target.

69 minBayern win a corner and Kroos's delivery into the middle is cleared to Thiago, who is 25 yards out from goal. The midfielder tries his luck from long range, but his powerful effort is struck high over the bar.
