Back come Ajax and Neuer scuffs a clearance straight to De Ligt, who tries to go for goal from half with the keeper well off his line, but just misses the target!
Great idea there from the teenager. An important response from Bayern, who have been quite clearly second best since the restart.
Alaba drives down the left flank and pulls it back across the penalty area, but it gets by everyone despite a crowd of bodies in the penalty area.
Wonderfully worked by the visitors on the front foot, with Tadic and Ziyech featuring prominently in the build-up, but Bayern are just let off the hook as Schone is called for a foul having shoved an opponent on the edge of the penalty area.
Blind catches Muller late with a challenge near the halfway line, and that will see the defender, turned midfielder tonight, into the book. Bayern are feeling generous to start this second half, and Ajax certainly aren't lacking in belief!
Tagliafico this time gets sight of goal from inside the penalty area, but his effort is stopped smartly by Neuer at full-stretch, with the keeper then just getting to the rebound first, with two Ajax players keen to pounce.
A brilliant opportunity for the visitors goes begging! Ziyech lifts a ball over the top for Neres to chase, and the winger in turn clips a tidy delivery in for Tadic, who is left alone in the centre of the penalty area, but lacks composure as he snatches at the chance, bouncing a tame first-time effort straight at Neuer!
Through 45 minutes both sides have three shots on target, they've virtually split possession, have completed right around the same amount of passes and each have a goal to their name.
Many would have expected Bayern to win comfortably here, but that's been far from the case. It's been wonderfully even and remains brilliantly poised in advance of the second half.
Back underway in the second half! No changes to tell you about at the break. Bayern got off to a terrific start when Mats Hummels opened the score inside of four minutes, but a timid-looking Ajax side quickly turned things around.
The visitors dug deep to find their confidence and really took the game to the hosts, before being justly rewarded with their equaliser - a first goal for the club from Noussair Mazraoui.
It's been splitting hairs ever since. What a strike that was by Ziyech, from a little under 30 yards! He puts everything he has behind that one, driving a venomous effort towards goal, but it's just a bit too central as Neuer is able to parry over the bar!
The ensuing corner is met by De Ligt, but he can't quite generate the power needed from his header. Momentum has swung a bit in favour of Bayern again over the last 10 minutes or so, but they're not looking all that threatening.
They're being made to settle for a number of corners and hopeful balls into the area, which Ajax are appearing more than assured in dealing with.
Ajax break threateningly following a Bayern corner, and a sumptuous bit of skill from Ziyech results in a dangerous foul from Martinez, which prompts a gathering of angry Ajax players who come to their team-mate's aid.
The referee initially looked as though he wasn't going to award further discipline, but after a bit of contemplation he shows the midfielder a yellow card.
Ribery wasn't involved in Bayern's goal, but he's certainly been their liveliest player in attack. He prances through on the end of a delightful back-heel from Lewandowski, but a strong block from Mazraoui snuffs out the initial threat, before a Blind interception brings the attack to an end.
Put generic kits on these two teams, and take away the club names, and you wouldn't be able to spot any real talent discrepancy between them - at least not one as big as the perceived gap between Bayern and Ajax.
It's been incredibly even, with both sides enjoying prominent spells, and very little between them at the moment.
A good challenge from Van de Beek breaks up a threatening Bayern move, but it catches Wober by surprise as he gifts possession back to Bayern.
Martinez tries to catch them with a first-time strike from 25 yards, but he just misses at the far post! Onana would have had that covered, though, it seems.
And now a response from Ajax, who aren't backing down in the slightest. They win a free-kick on the left in an advanced position, following an exciting bit of interplay, but the resulting delivery is dealt with by the hosts.
Finally Bayern reply with a bit of pressure of their own, through a terrific passage of play from Ribery down the left. Onana does even better, however, as he gets off his line and just manages to clear Ribery's low cross in to the near post, which Lewandowski was dreaming of getting on the end of!
Ajax attacking with all sorts of confidence right now as Bayern are really stuck on their heels. It's been one-way traffic since about the 15th minute, with Ajax surprisingly dominating.
That goal will have gone a long way to helping their confidence, and now their imagination will have to be running a bit wild Tadic, who has enjoyed a terrific start to life in Amsterdam, provides the assist.
Well it was looking bleak for them following that early Bayern goal, but they've responded really well over the last 10 minutes and have their just reward!
Mazraoui bursts forward from right-back, playing a delightful one-two with Tadic, before guiding a delicious finish beyond the reach of Neuer with his weaker left foot!
Ribery looks to break quickly following an Ajax corner and Van de Beek takes one for the team, tugging on the shirt of the Frenchman to prevent a counter.
It's a professional foul, but also a clear yellow card. Bayern are still looking a bit vulnerable as Ajax continue to spend an increasing amount of time on the ball, and are showing much more of a willingness to get forward.
Neuer is forced into his first save of the night on the end of a testing shot from Ziyech, who bounced an effort toward the near post from 25 yards.
Much better from the visitors. Continued possession for Ajax as they remain in the ascendancy, and it results in their first sight of goal.
Tagliafico, the left-back who scored a double in the match against AEK Athens, is sent through on the overlap down the left flank, and picks out a lovely pull-back for Tadic, but the Serbian skies his first-time effort!
A bit better here from the visitors as they enjoy some time on the ball, temporarily relieving the pressure on their goal.
Usually a fast-paced side, Ajax are lacking the same tempo in possession thus far, and it's really plaguing their ability to push on into attack.
Ajax have some very capable attacking players in their side, but they've shown such little desire to get forward in these opening stages.
This young side is understandably a bit timid, but they really need to show a bit more confidence when in possession.
All the questions being asked by Bayern right now, and Lewandowski's first real threat comes following a delicious first touch, but De Ligt shows excellent awareness and strength to fend off the striker and win his side a goal kick.
That's some play from the teenager, who is captaining the side tonight in his first ever Champions League group match. Conceding an early goal is really the last thing Ajax could afford, as it changes their whole approach now.
Instead of sitting back and play for a draw, looking for chances on the break, they now have to be a bit more brave, which could spell disaster defensively.
Robben picked out that delivery perfectly, making for an easy finish for Hummels. Some poor defending from Ajax as no one marks the run of Hummels towards the back post, allowing the defender to latch onto Robben's perfect cross and head home from close range!
A lively opening in Munich, as both sides threaten from the off. Ziyech gets an early chance on the break as he sprints forward with just one defender to beat, but can't negotiate his way around Hummels.
Back the other way come Bayern and Ribery smacks a volley into the side netting from a difficult angle, before Robben forces Onana into a smart save with a vintage left-footed strike.
Bayern in red as they get the match underway, with Ajax in black! FC Köln and Werder Bremen. Zebec used only 13 players throughout the season.
Udo Lattek took charge in The deciding match in the —72 season against Schalke 04 was the first match in the new Olympiastadion , and was also the first live televised match in Bundesliga history.

The final trophy won by Bayern in this era was the Intercontinental Cup , in which they defeated Brazilian club Cruzeiro over two legs.
The s were a period of off-field turmoil for Bayern, with many changes in personnel and financial problems.

Bayern won the DFB-Pokal in and went on to win five Bundesliga championships in six seasons, including a double in European success, however, was elusive during the decade; Bayern managed to claim the runners-up spot in the European Cup in and Jupp Heynckes was hired as coach in , but after two consecutive championships in —89 and —90 , Bayern's form dipped.

Beckenbauer was then appointed club president. His successors as coach, Giovanni Trapattoni and Otto Rehhagel , both finished trophyless after a season, not meeting the club's high expectations.
For the —97 season , Trapattoni returned to win the championship. In the following season , Bayern lost the title to newly promoted 1.
FC Kaiserslautern and Trapattoni had to take his leave for the second time. In Hitzfeld's first season , Bayern won the Bundesliga and came close to winning the Champions League , losing 2—1 to Manchester United into injury time after leading for most of the match.
The following year, in the club's centenary season , Bayern won the third league and cup double in its history.
A third consecutive Bundesliga title followed in , won with a stoppage time goal on the final day of the league season. The —02 season began with a win in the Intercontinental Cup , but ended trophyless otherwise.

Prior to the start of the —06 season , Bayern moved from the Olympiastadion to the new Allianz Arena , which the club shares with Munich. On the field, their performance in —07 was erratic.
Trailing in the league and having lost to Alemannia Aachen in the cup yet again, coach Magath was sacked shortly after the winter break.
Hitzfeld returned as a trainer in January , but Bayern finished the —07 season in fourth position, thus failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in more than a decade.
For the —08 season , Bayern made drastic squad changes to help rebuild. They signed a total of eight new players and sold, released or loaned out nine of their players.

In the Champions League Bayern also reached the quarter-finals after winning Group F and defeating Sporting CP in the first knockout round, achieving a Champions League record aggregate of 12—1.

Former trainer Jupp Heynckes was named as caretaker until the end of the season. Bayern then signed Dutch manager Louis van Gaal for the —10 season.

In the —12 season , Heynckes returned to coach Bayern for a second permanent spell but the team was to end the season without a trophy for the second season running.
Domestically they finished second in the Bundesliga and lost the DFB-Pokal final 2—5, both times finishing runner-up to Borussia Dortmund. They also reached the final of the Champions League in their home stadium, but lost to Chelsea on penalties 3—4 in what was only the club's second defeat to an English team in Munich, and their first at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern also equaled the record for fewest defeats in a season, losing once, to Bayer Leverkusen. Bayern also reached the Champions League final for the third time in four seasons, winning the club's fifth European Cup with a 2—1 defeat of domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium.
On 1 July , Pep Guardiola took over as manager ahead of the —14 season. With seven matches remaining in the season, it was the earliest the championship had been won in Bundesliga history, breaking the record Bayern had set in the previous season.
Despite being eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League by Real Madrid and the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal by Borussia Dortmund, they managed to clinch a fifth consecutive Bundesliga title with three matches remaining following a 6—0 away win over VfL Wolfsburg.
On 9 October Jupp Heynckes returned for the fourth time to manage Bayern. Heynckes signed a contract until the end of the —18 season. In the original club constitution, Bayern's colours were named as white and blue, but the club played in white shirts with black shorts until , when Bayern joined MSC.

In the s and s, Bayern used a special away kit when playing at 1. FC Kaiserslautern , representing the Brazilian colours blue and yellow, a superstition borne from the fact that the club found it hard to win there.
Bayern's crest has changed several times. Originally it consisted of the stylised letters F, C, B, M, which were woven into one symbol.

Bayern's record crowd at the Grünwalder Stadion is reported as more than 50, in the home game against 1. FC Nürnberg in the —62 season. As was the case at most of this period's stadiums, the vast majority of the stadium was given over to terracing.
Today the second teams of both clubs play in the stadium. For the Summer Olympics the city of Munich built the Olympiastadion.
The stadium, renowned for its architecture,  was inaugurated in the last Bundesliga match of the —72 season.
The match drew a capacity crowd of 79,, a total which was reached again on numerous occasions. The stadium was, in its early days, considered to be one of the foremost stadiums in the world and played host to numerous major finals, such as that of FIFA World Cup.
Many people, however, began to feel that the stadium was too cold in winter, with half the audience exposed to the weather due to lack of cover.
A further complaint was the distance between the spectators and the pitch, betraying the stadium's track and field heritage. Renovation proved impossible, as the architect Günther Behnisch vetoed major modifications of the stadium.
After much discussion, the city of Munich, the state of Bavaria , Bayern Munich and Munich jointly decided at the end of to build a new stadium.
Located on the northern outskirts of Munich, the Allianz Arena has been in use since the beginning of the —06 season. The most prominent feature of the stadium is the translucent outer layer, which can be illuminated in different colours for impressive effects.
