What a drubbing that was for Tottenham Hotspur. Bayern Munich were astonishing. Gnabry, Lewandowski, Coutinho... they all played phenomenally well. Serious questions will be asked of Pochettino and Spurs after this. The second half was a disaster. There's a lot of work to be done at Tottenham this season. Yikes.

- End of 2nd Half
FULL TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 2-7 Bayern Munich
This has been a disastrous second half from Tottenham. There has been no fight from them, no organisation and no quality. Bayern Munich have torn them to shreds and it has been so easy.
There's just two minutes of stoppage time to be played at the end of the match.
- GoalSerge GnabryFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham 2 Bayern Munich 7 (88 mins - Serge Gnabry). The former Arsenal man has FOUR and Bayern Munich have SEVEN! That was so easy. Gnabry was allowed time and space to settle himself 20 yards out and then fire a shot past Lloris. This has been a chastening second half for Spurs.
- GoalRobert LewandowskiFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2 Bayern Munich 6 (87 mins - Robert Lewandowski). It's six for the Bundesliga champions! This has turned into a battering for Spurs. Gnabry played the pass into Coutinho who then spun an excellent ball out to Lewandowski. The Polish striker then found the far corner of the net with the low finish.
Gnabry just never looked like missing as soon as he controlled that pass played over the top of the Tottenham defence by Thiago. There is so much confidence oozing through him right now.
One has to wonder why Arsenal decided to let go of Gnabry. He is better than any wide attacker they have at the moment and has flourished since making the move to the Bundesliga.
- GoalSerge GnabryFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2 Bayern Munich 5 (83 mins - Serge Gnabry). What a performance from Gnabry on his return to North London! The ball was played over the top from Thiago for the attacker to run on to, he took an excellent touch and finished with aplomb past Lloris. What a player he is.
Kane's penalty kick gave Spurs a lifeline, but since then you've never really felt that Tottenham were on the brink of a comeback. Bayern Munich have done well to slow down the game.
- OffHarry WinksTottenham Hotspur
- OnErik LamelaTottenham Hotspur
One last throw of the dice from Pochettino as he introduces Lamela.
Son plays the ball straight out of play from the byline and there's a feeling around the new Spurs stadium that this match might have got away from the home team. Time running out.
Eriksen shoots over! The Dane probably should have done better with that. The pass was played to him 20 yards, he was unmarked, but leaned back and sent his shot well over the target.
It's all gone a bit quiet at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the last few minutes. Bayern Munich might well be trying to suffocate this game. They're doing a decent job of doing that.
Bayern Munich have been written off by some in recent years and it's fair to say they aren't the force they were under Pep Guardiola or Jupp Heynckes. But they still have great quality.
Make no mistake, Bayern Munich are in control of this match. They have a two-goal cushion with 15 minutes left to play and are capable of scoring more. But Spurs are still in this.
- OffJérôme BoatengFC Bayern Munich
- OnJavi MartínezFC Bayern Munich
It looks like Boateng might have picked up and injury and so Martinez comes on for the centre back.
- OffDele AlliTottenham Hotspur
- OnLucas MouraTottenham Hotspur
Pochettino has also taken this opportunity to make a sub with Moura replacing Dele.
- OffKingsley ComanFC Bayern Munich
- OnIvan PerišicFC Bayern Munich
Kovac makes a second change of the match and it's Perisic who will get the final 20 minutes.
Spurs aren't dead yet. This has been an extremely open match. They just need to make sure that they create the next two chances and take them. Bayern Munich haven't looked so strong at the back.
Was that a penalty? Rose got lucky there. He slid in on Coman and got nowhere near the ball. There was contact between the two players, but the officials decide it wasn't enough.
What a strike! What a save! Things opened up for Eriksen 20 yards out, the Dane struck the ball powerfully, but Neuer got his fingertips to it to make sure it went over the Bayern Munich crossbar! Instant impact from Eriksen!
- OffTanguy N'DombeleTottenham Hotspur
- OnChristian EriksenTottenham Hotspur
Pochettino makes his first change of the night and Eriksen comes on for Ndombele.
Sissoko shoots over! That was an opportunity for the Spurs midfielder. The cross bounced just in front of Sissoko has he met a cross into the box and he balloons the effort over.
PICTURE: Gnabry has grabbed the headlines on his return to North London.
Will that goal act as a catalyst for Spurs? They've still got a lot of work to do to get back on level terms, but we have already seen that they have the ability to open up the Bavarians.
That looked a soft penalty kick award. There was barely a touch on Rose from Coman, but the officials decided that it was enough to give Spurs the opportunity from the spot.
- Goal by penaltyHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2 (61 mins - Harry Kane) Bayern Munich 4. Kane has given Tottenham a lifeline from the penalty spot! The England captain was made to wait as the officials checked the penalty with VAR, but despite Neuer diving the right way he was able to guide the ball past the Bayern Munich goalkeeper!
PENALTY KICK TO TOTTENHAM! Spurs have been awarded a penalty as Coman brings down Rose inside the box!
This has been a really difficult spell for Spurs and Pochettino and there will be more questions asked of the Argentine after this. Tottenham are in the midst of a difficult run of form.
A hush has descended on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Well, almost. The Bayern Munich supporters are making a right noise, but the Spurs fans have fallen silent. Tough for them to watch.
- GoalSerge GnabryFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 Bayern Munich 4 (55 mins - Serge Gnabry). All of a sudden this is turning into a rout! Winks loses the ball 25 yards out from his own goal with the pass played by Boateng into Gnabry. The former Arsenal player thn guided a low finish past Lloris off he inside of the far post.
Bayern Munich have completed turned this game on its head. They have been ruthless in front of goal this evening. They have so much attacking threat and Muller and Perisic are also on the bench.
- GoalSerge GnabryFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 Bayern Munich 3 (53 mins - Serge Gnabry). The former Arsenal man has found the back of the net against Spurs! Gnabry beats Aurier then drives at Alderweireld. The German international cuts inside and moves the ball on to his right foot, firing a finish past Lloris into the far corner of the net!
Spurs have started this second half a little sluggishly. That's not what Pochettino would have hoped for. Bayern Munich seem to have taken a grip of things since taking the lead.
Straight at Neuer! Dele made a run in behind the Bayern Munich defence with the pass from Alderweireld finding him. It was tough from there and Dele's shot is straight at Neuer.
PICTURE: Bayern Munich took the lead before the break.
Tolisso strike on goal! Lewandowski's shot form 20 yards out is blocked on the edge of the Spurs box, Tolisso picks it up, but sends his effort wide of the far post. Lloris was worried.
Spurs will have gone into the dressing room at half time feeling aggrieved. They had been the better team in the first half, they'd had chances, but Bayern Munich took the lead.
This was the goal that put Bayern ahead before the break...
- Yellow cardHarry KaneTottenham Hotspur
Kane is flashed a yellow card for sending an arm into the face of a Bayern Munich player.
- OffDavid AlabaFC Bayern Munich
- OnThiagoFC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich have made a change at the break with Thiago coming on for Alaba.

- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Bayern Munich. On the whole, Spurs have probably been the better of the two teams, but two goals from Kimmich and Lewandowski have put the Bavarians in control.
- GoalRobert LewandowskiFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 Bayern Munich 2 (45 mins - Robert Lewandowski). Bayern Munich have taken the lead right at the end of the first half! Spurs failed to clear their lines and Lewandowski spun on the ball just inside the box and fired a low instinctive finish past Lloris! What a strike from the Polish forward!
- Yellow cardTanguy N'DombeleTottenham Hotspur
Ndombele is booked for a foul on Coutinho around 20 yards out from goal. Lewandowski's freekick gets through the wall, but flashes wide.
It feels like Tottenham are holding out for half time a little bit here. Bayern Munich are pressing for a second goal. Gnabry, Coman and Coutinho all look dangerous for the away side.
Pochettino is surely worried that Bayern Munich are being given too much time and space on the ball. Spurs are dropping deep, but that's inviting pressure from the Germans.
PICTURE: Son opened the scoring for Spurs.
Was that a foul? Dele wanted either a freekick or a penalty for being barged in the back by Pavard as the two players challenged for an aerial ball. But the referee didn't buy it.
Aurier has improved since making a shaky start to the match. Of course, the right back was sent off in the first half of the Premier League win over Southampton at the weekend.
It's the Bayern Munich supporters making all the noise at the moment. What a travelling fanbase they have. Their team are enjoying a better spell of the match at the moment. Pressing.
The rain is pouring in North London this evening and that is making the pitch a little slippy. There's no sign of it cutting up or anything like that, but still a challenge for the players.
Bayern Munich had bodies flooding forward with Lewandowski eventually playing the pass out to Coman. Spurs tracked back well and stopped the cross from entering their box.
Tottenham have done a good job of attacking Bayern Munich, they have created a number of opportunities and have tested Neuer, but they could really do with a second goal.
Son... wide! Some lovely passing between Ndombele and Dele eventually saw the pass threaded through for Son, but after shifting the ball on to his right foot he shoots wide of the near post.
That was risky! Boateng played a dangerous ball back to Neuer who had to dummy it to shrug off Son who was right on top of him. That was classic Neuer, but his teammates surely held their breath!
Too high! Kane hits the freekick on the edge of the Bayern Munich box, but the Spurs striker gets a bit too much power on his effort and Neuer watches it flash over. He was too close.
This has been an excellent match so far. Very open encounter between two teams who have had real opportunities. Spurs have probably edged things so far, but Bayern well in this.
Big chance for Spurs! That should have been a second goal. Kane showed great composure to pick out Ndombele in the box, but his low shot is saved by Neuer. He should have found the back of the net.
- Yellow cardSerge GnabryFC Bayern Munich
There's the first booking of the night and it's Gnabry who is shown the yellow.
PICTURE: Kimmich levelled things for the away side.
Lloris saves from Coutinho! That's the first time that the former Liverpool playmaker has tested the Spurs goalkeeper. Lloris makes the stop this time, but Tottenham can't afford him too much space.
Spurs have responded well to losing that equaliser so quickly after going ahead. They are taking the game to the Bundesliga champions. Bayern Munich have been on the back foot.
Son gets the strike away! The South Korean is looking very lively. He cuts inside off the left side to get the shot away from about 20 yards out, but Neuer makes the save this time.
Ndombele has started this match well. He has been the best player on the pitch over the opening 20 minutes or so. He very easily could have had two or three assists already. Impressive.
Cleared off the line! Neuer ended up in no man's land in coming out to meet Kane from a Dele pass over the top. Kane got the shot round the goalkeeper, but Alaba was back to clear off the line!
What an excellent start to this match. Most presume that it will be a straight shootout between these two teams to finish top of Group B and both sides are playing like it. Very open!
- GoalJoshua KimmichFC Bayern Munich
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 Bayern Munich 1 (15 mins - Joshua Kimmich). Tottenham's lead didn't last long! Kimmich was allowed to bring down a half-clearance about 20 yards out, Spurs gave him far too much time and space and the German international whipped a finish into the left-hand corner of the net. What a finish!
Bayern Munich argued that Tolisso was fouled as he gave away the ball, but the VAR check is complete and they have no such case. Son's opening goal was perfectly legitimate.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 1 (12 mins - Heung Min-Son) Bayern Munich 0. Spurs have the opener! That had been coming! Bayern gave up the ball cheaply on the edge of their own box, Sissoko played the pass through for Son and the South Korean rifled a finish past Neuer despite the German's best efforts!
Lewandowski has played through by Alaba, he looked to be offside, but still managed to get the shot away. Lloris made the save and then the flag went up. New VAR protocol, of course.
Another chance for Son! Once again, Ndombele finds the South Korean with a threaded pass in behind Bayern Munich, but Son has a shot from a tight angle saved. Was he looking for Kane?
PICTURE: Gnabry had an early chance for Bayern Munich.
Of course, Bayern Munich in the midst of a squad rebuild. They signed Pavard, Hernandez and Coutinho during the summer with legends Ribery and Robben leaving Bavaria.
It was Bayern Munich who forged the first chance of the night, but Spurs have taken a grip of things early on here. They are the ones dictating possession through the middle.
Neuer denies Son! There's Spurs' first real opportunity. Ndombele played the pass in behind for the South Korean, but the Bayern Munich goalkeeper smothered the low shot! That perhaps should have been the opener.
Pochettino made just one change to his Spurs team from the side that struggled to a home win over Southampton at the weekend with Dele returning from injury to replace Eriksen.
Of course, Lloris dropped a clanger for Spurs in the game against Southampton at the weekend, but that early save from Gnabry will have boosted the French goalkeeper's confidence.
The pre-match scenes!
Spurs looked rather open at the back there as the pass was played through for Gnabry. Alderweireld and Vertonghen might struggle against the pace of Gnabry and Coman on the attack.
An early chance! That was a real opening for Bayern Munich! Gnabry was left one-against-one with Alderweireld, the former Arsenal man got the space for a shot, but Lloris made the save to deny him!
