Defending Champions Bayern Munich Demolishes Atletico Madrid In Champions League Opener (WATCH )

 

 



Bayern Munich began the defence of their Champions League with a 4-0 thrashing of Atletico Madrid at the Allianz Arena.

Two goals were scored in each half of the match as the defending champions recorded a comfortable win over last season's last 16 competitors.

Kingsley Coman scored a brace while Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso grabbed a goal each in the match.

Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid: Coman scores brace in Bavarians 4-0 win.

Bayern were rewarded for their persistence after Coman brilliantly executed a perfect delivery from Josua Kimmich to make it 1-0 in the 28th minute.

The Bavarians scored even a better second goal after goalscorer Coman provided a beautiful cross to Goretzka who made it 2-0 with an instinctive finish four minutes before half time. A

 minute after the break, Atletico thought they had reduced the deficit after Joao Felix's deflected shot beat Manuel Neuer on goal but Luis Suarez was spotted in an offside position as the goal did not stand.

Tolisso's goal sealed the deal with an outrageous strike from 25 yards as he unleashed a belter that beat Jan Oblak in goal to make it 3-0 in the 66th minute.

Coman produced a brilliant individual effort to score Bayern's fourth as finished off an assist from Thomas Mueller to make it 4-0.

Bayern continued from where they stopped last season as they top Group A as Lokomotiv Moscow and Redbull Salzburg settled for a 2-2 draw in the other group match.

Ronaldo currently holds the record for scoring in nine consecutive opening Champions League matches and Lewandoski can go one better than the Portuguese if he finds the back of the net.
