UEFA Champions League: Bayern ease to 3-0 win over Red Star

Published

on

Bayern Munich kicked off their Champions League campaign by easing to a 3-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday in a one-sided Group B encounter.

Kingsley Coman headed them into the lead in the 34th minute from a fine Ivan Perisic cross and the Bundesliga’s leading scorer Robert Lewandowski slid in for the second goal in the 80th.

Thomas Mueller, who became the club’s record Champions League appearance maker when he came on as a substitute for his 106th game in the competition, volleyed in his first goal of the season in stoppage time.

Bayern stretched their unbeaten run in Champions League group stage home matches to 16.

The hosts carved out chance after chance and twice hit the woodwork, while the Serbs, who battled through qualifying, were largely toothless up front.

In the group’s other game, Olympiakos Piraeus came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in Athens. (Reuters/)
