The stage is set - goodnight!
Full-time: Bayern Munich 6-1 Fenerbahce (Sanches '22, Goretzka '28, Muller '31, (pen) '44, '59, Coman '40 - Kruse '64)

Result says it all, domination. Fenerbahce actually started and ended quite well but were woeful for the middle period.

Bayern progress to tomorrow's final, also at the Allianz Arena, against Tottenham as they aim to win their fourth Audi Cup. Fenerbahce play Real Madrid for third place.

How the onslaught began
Dirar fuming
'73: It is unknown whether it's the Bayern or Fener fans booing Dirar, but he's frustrated at it either way. Couple more Bayern subs have just been made as Thiago and Lewandowski leave the field.

'59: GOAL! It's six! Muller receives the ball over the top as he beats the offside trap. Harun is miles off his line but Muller aims round him and converts from 40-yards for his hat-trick!

Leroy Sane rumours
Chairman of the executive board of Bayern, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has been speaking on the club's links to Manchester City's Leroy Sane at half-time.
One word to sum it all up
HALF-TIME: Bayern Munich 5-0 Fenerbahce (Sanches '22, Goretzka '28, Muller '31, (pen) '44, Coman '40)

Dominant. Not from start to finish as Fenerbahce had started well but Bayern look all but confirmed for tomorrow's final with Spurs.

'44: GOAL! This is quickly becoming a cricket score in the first half as Muller slots his penalty beyond Harun after Lewandowski was brought down.

'38: Goretzka heads home from a cross for his second but the flag was up on the far side.
'31: GOAL! Substitute Muller gets in on the fun, wrestling off a defender after a poor lack of judgment in the six-yard box and firing beyond Harun. Game over?  

Bayern Munich 3-0 Fenerbahce

'29: GOAL! Alaba cuts back for Goretzka who this time converts.

Bayern Munich 2-0 Fenerbahce

'26: Muller is on hand with the through ball this time, Kimmich attempts to get onto the chance but instead wins a corner. Goretzka connects with the corner but this is blocked.
'22: GOAL! Thiago splits open the Fener defence with a through pass that finds Lewandowski. The Polish striker squares for Renato Sanches who gratefully taps home.

Early Bayern sub

'15: The hosts have had three corners in the opening quarter of an hour here, all to no avail. Coming into this slowly.

Fenerbahce chance
'5: Garry Rodrigues feeds Max Kruse on the counter but the former Werder Bremen man fires wide of the far post.

5 minutes to go!
The teams are on their way out! The second semi-final of the Audi Cup is almost upon us.
Spurs make the final!
It's official - Spurs beat Real Madrid 1-0 and make tomorrow's Audi Cup final. The winner of tonight's game will join them, whilst the loser will face Real for third place.
Strong sides
As expected, big money signing Hernandez doesn't start but manager Niko Kovac fields a strong Bayern side. Their bench consists of a range of fringe and first-time players, including the likes of Thomas Muller and Corentin Tolisso.

It's matchday! Bayern Munich and Fenerbahce do battle in the second Audi Cup semi-final at 7.30pm (BST).
Team News
Bayern will be without big money signing Hernandez as he continues to recover from a ligament injury suffered in February. Other than that, their full squad is moreorless at manager Niko Kovac's disposal.

Goalkeeper Erten Ersu is unavailable for Fener whilst youngster Okan Turp will also miss out.

Fenerbahce not splashing the cash
The Turkish side have only spent an estimated total of around £5m so far but have made plenty of additions with that total. Attacking talent in Vedat Muriqi and Allahyar Sayyadmanesh have joined the club whilst Werder Bremen's Max Kruse has made the switch on a free transfer. The likes of Yasir Subasi and Murat Saglam come in as young defensive options.


Their most notable departure of the summer is Napoli's signing of 19-year-old midfielder Eljif Elmas for a fee in the region of £15m.

Bayern's buying
The German giants have spent over £100m in the window so far this season and this looks set to increase should the rumoured addition of Manchester City winger Leroy Sane go through. As for completed transfers, Lucas Hernandez joined from Atletico for a fee in the region of £70m and French World Cup hero Benjamin Pavard finally completed his move to the Allianz Arena from relegated Stuttgart.


The departures of Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and James Rodriguez leave the squad worse off, though, and Mats Hummels has rejoined Borussia Dortmund.

A little bit of history here, as the two sides have never met in a competitive fixture. This gives off the element of the unknown although Bayern have never lost against Turkish opposition. First time for everything?
Mixed pre-seasons for both
Bayern played for the International Champions Cup this summer but a loss to Arsenal in their first fixture was enough to make sure they couldn't win the title for the first time. They did, however, recover with wins over a struggling Real Madrid and AC Milan.

Fenerbahce saw off two Turkish counterparts in mid-July before drawing and losing to Bundesliga opposition in Wolfsburg and Hertha Berlin respectively. Bayern will be their third and toughest German challenge of the month as they aim to secure a late boost before the start of the Super Lig season on August 18.

What is the Audi Cup?
The Audi Cup is a two-day pre-season tournament sponsored by, well, Audi. It features Bayern Munich as well as three other clubs and all fixtures are played at the German side's Allianz Arena home.


Both semi-finals are played on the first day before the final and third-place play-off during the second. The tournament occurs every two years and this is the sixth edition. Atletico Madrid are the holders but city rivals Real are the only Spanish representation in this season's edition, as they do battle with Tottenham in the day's earlier game.


Then, three-time winners and hosts Bayern face off with Turkish side Fenerbahce to determine the finalists.
