...
FULL TIME Bayern 1-0 City
...
87' 3 minutes to go in the game and it has not been a very impressive performance but it is a very inexperienced City side so not much can be made of this performance. Only Pep knows what needs to be done
...
85' Almost for City! Celina cut inside a couple of defenders and took his shot but it deflected off the GK and Bayern clear their lines
...
83' Bayern celebrating the goal
83' Bayern celebrating the goal
...
82' OOOH CITY GO CLOSE! Yaya Toure just about misses the near post from his free-kick! 
...
78' So can Pep's City find a way to equalize with a little over 10 minutes to go? Not if they play the way they have been so far!
...
75' BAYERN SCORE! Right-footed effort from young man Erdal Ozturk hits Clichy and wrong foots the keeper and lands in the back of the net! We have the first goal of the Guardiola ... oh wait not yet!
...
76' City's lack of attacking play is probably due to them not understanding Pep's world famous and complicated hand motions yet! You'll get there boys don't worry
...
73' Alex Garcia comes on for Fernandinho
...
76' BONY GOES CLOSE! Angelino with a lovely ball in and Bony gets a glance on it with his header but it's wide! Best thing to happen all half!
...
74' Right now I'M hoping of more ripped shirts in this game. At least we get some interesting post-match questions then!
...
68'  A big moment for young Felix Goetze Mario GOetze's younger brother who comes on for Bayern 
...
64' Bayern's attackers have fell flat a bit so now both sides are just hoping to get a lucky break I guess. The only person who seems to be back from their summer vacations is Pep Guardiola
...
58' CITY LET OFF THE HOOK! The inexperienced Adarabioyo let the ball run behind him but did not see the onrushing Bayern player but his shot from a  tight angle is straightforward for Gunn
...
56' Celina and Yaya Toure have also come on for Pep's side. 
...
54' Clichy and Bony combining again as the striker's shot deflects out for another corner. The resulting corner lands at Fernandinho's feet but his volley is way over. Tough chance for City
...
52' City have started brighter as Guardiola is very animated on the touchline demanding his players to work hard and press!
...
50' Corner for City 
...
48' Clichy and Bony are on for Manchester City. A little more experience in the team now
...
46' Two changes for Bayern a couple of youngsters will get a run out
...
And we are underway again!
...
Half Time Bayern 0-0 City
...
44' So as we come to the end of the first half there will have to be a 'Pep' talk for these City players. They seem afraid to express themselves on the pitch. They need a little more confidence
...
41' Corner for City! Can they take  surprise lead?
...
39' Caballero easily the most active player in City's team so far! He's even sweating!
...
38' Bayern threaten again with Ribery at heart things again! He finds Rafinha with a brilliant aerial ball and his low cross is intercepted by the keeper
...
35' BRILLIANT FROM RIBERY! Once again the Frenchman waltz his way to the byline in the box and finds Green again but Caballero is there to save City's blushes!
...
33' City so far playing it very safe. None of their youngsters look like they are taking a chance when they are in the final third. 
...
30' Green looks very lively in and around the box. the City defense are unable to deal with his movement and skill. He chips the ball into the net only for the flag to be raised but the decision is wrong as Maffeo was playing him onside
...
28' ANOTHER SAVE FROM CABALLERO!! Bayern just cut through the City midfield and Green ends up with a one-on-one chance and shoots it right at Caballero! Poor finish from the American
...
22' If you are wondering Guardiola is playing a 4-2-3-1 the system he is widely expected to play when the season starts
...
21' GREAT EFFORT! Navas wins the race against the Bayern right back and gives it to IHEANACHO who's attempted curling effort from outside the area lands on the roof of the net
...
20' Well you can't change a team overnight and City are proving it here! The youngsters are struggling to make an impression on Bayern
...
18' The change of guard at Bayern Munich
18' The change of guard at Bayern Munich
...
17' SAVE!!! Ribery weaved his magic in the box played a one-two with Alaba and the Austrian from point blank range hit it straight at Caballero! What a chance for Bayern! Should have been 1-0!
...
16' So no real clear cut chance from either side but Bayern dominating possession.The City youngsters coping well so far
...
13' Deja Vu of the EUROS as Ribery's shirt is torn already! Somebody somewhere has started writing an apology letter to the Frenchman!
...
11' Iheanacho has a huge season ahead of him. The striker really impressed last season and will need to impress Pep today if he wants a first-team starting berth
...
10' So far Bayern team seem to be more sharper than their English counterparts.  It shows relative experience of the two teams
...
6' Bayern with the first real opening of the game. Ribery controls a long ball beautifully and then finds Alaba on the overlap whose cross is just missed the onrushing striker
...
5' The high press from City very evident in these opening minutes
...
2' A very young and unknown side from Manchester City, Iheanacho, Navas , Fernando and Fernandinho the only recognizable names on the team sheet
...
KICK OFF!!!
...
Here's the Bayern XI:
Ulreich, Ribery, Martinez, Rafinha, Alonso, Bernat, Lahm Alaba, Feldhahn, Green, Benko
...
So a lot of unknown players on the squad as Guardiola is set to test out his youngsters
...
Here are the lineups:

Man City: Caballero; Maffeo, Adarabioyo, Kolarov, Angelino; Fernando, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; Barker, Iheanacho, Navas
...
So it's Pep's first game in charge and what a fitting way to kick off the new era, against his former club Bayern Munich!
