Another chance for Vidal! The ball breaks to the Chilean on the edge of the box and he has space to run onto it and hit a shot. We have seen him hammer so many efforts home over the years, but this time he looks to sidefoot it, and it's an easy save for Oblak. That should be that.


One last chance for Bayern, maybe? Muller whips a fine ball into the six yard area that Benatia gets his head on, but he can't get any direction to it and Oblak comfortably saves.


Costa darts in from the right, beats one man before lashing an effort from range, but it's bravely charged down by Savic. Moments later Alaba looks for the top corner with another bullet from outside the box, but again an Atletico defender gets in front of it.


Four minutes of time added on here.


Vidal is now booked for charging down Juanfran, NFL-style. Bayern are getting more and more frustrated with just minutes of normal time remaining.


Saul's night is over, Thomas Partey comes onto replace him.


Koke threatens to break into space down the left, but he runs the ball out of play. Benatia sticks out a leg to send him sprawling anyway and the entire Atletico bench leaps to its feet in protest. Benatia, who has only been on for the past few minutes, is booked and so is Neuer, who ran over to stick his beak in.


Less than 10 minutes of this contest remaining.


A cross from the right makes it's way over to Alaba on the left but this time he lashes a wild effort well over the bar.


Another change for Bayern, Bernat is coming off, Benatia will replace him.


Atletico hit the post! It's almost the perfect counter finished off by Torres who is freed inside the box by Griezmann. His first touch is immaculate, bamboozling Alaba as he cuts inside for the shot, but it cannons back off the inside of the post! It falls to Koke just inside the box, he steadies himself and shoots, but Neuer keeps it out.


Vidal denied! From the left, the Chile international arrows one towards the far top corner, but Oblak is equal to it. The ball breaks to Ribery who tries to slide a ball through for an onrushing teammate, but he overhits it.


Cheeky effort Costa. The Brazilian, running down the inside right channel into the box, meets a long ball with a first time dink, but there is just too much on it and it sails over.


Vidal plays a terrible ball out from the back that Torres is about an inch away from jumping onto, but it squirms away from him and the Chilean gets away with it.


Pep Guardiola has seen enough, here comes Franck Ribery to replace Coman.


Vidal clips a neat ball over for Lewandowski who tries a shot into the far corner from a tight angle, but he can't quite get it right.


Coman drives into the box and no Atletico player dares challenge him in case they take him down. Instead, Gimenez gets across to make the block. The resulting corner comes in, but Fernando Torres is on the scene to nut it away.


Bayern close again! Coman lifts a cracking corner in straight onto the noggin of Martinez, but it's straight at Oblak who catches well.


What an effort from Alaba! From over 30 yards out, the defender thumps a sublime shot that looks to be veering into the top corner, only for it to come back off the cross bar. Wonderful technique.


It's been all Bayern in the opening five minutes of this half, but Oblak hasn't really been troubled yet.


Bayern still have a couple of handy options on the bench, remember. Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery are kicking back at the minute.


Lewandowski springs down the left flank after clipping the ball wonderfully over Juanfran, before cutting a ball back across the six yard area. It's too far away from Coman but Vidal can reach it, only to punt a poor effort straight at Savic who can clear.


And Atletico get us back underway for the second half.
