Bayern Munich strolled past Viktoria Pilsen with a 5-0 win on Tuesday at Allianz Arena.

Bayern and Viktoria sit 1st, (9 points) and 4th, (0 points), in the league respectively, after 3 matches.

The momentum was again with The Reds, who then scored again courtesy of a goal from Serge Gnabry on the 13 minute mark to establish a 2-0 result. They then scored again, pulling level thanks to a goal from Sadio Mane in the 21st minute. The first half ended 3-0.

The Reds staged a comeback in the second half, with an early 2nd effort from Leroy Sane in the 50th minute. Bayern then netted once more and increased their advantage thanks to a goal from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the 59th minute to give a final score of 5-0.
