There were early signs that Bayern were going in for an absolute mauling of their opponents right from the start as Choupo Moting hit the crossbar with his effort before Muslara got in on the act.

Choupo Moting, a former Stoke City player, scored twice more before the break to complete his hat trick as Bayern went into halftime leading 7-0.

Former Manchester City man Leroy Sane made it eight before things went from bad to worse for Bremer as Udo Nobile was sent off for a bad challenge.

Bayern somehow cranked up the pressure despite leading by a massive eight goals and scored four more before the final whistle, with all their four final goals being scored in eight minutes from minute 80.

Michael Cuisance, Bouna Sarr and Corentin Tolisso all got in on the act while Choupo Moting continued his ruthlessness by adding his fourth on the day late on.

The result was quite massive and spoke volumes of Bayern’s professionalism and desire to win even against opponents considered to be minions.

500 UCL Goals

YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Bayern Munich had joined the exclusive rights of clubs with 500 UCL goals - They also won the Champions League title without losing a single game following their 1-0 win over Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League final at the Estadio da Luz last season.

They have now joined Real Madrid and Barcelona on the list of elite clubs that have achieved the same feat before now.

They also recorded a staggering 8-2 victory over Barcelona at the quarterfinal stage, as Tottenham suffered a similar scoreline during last year's champions league.

Resounding victory

Despite the resounding victory, it still did not match the scoreline which Bayern set back in 1997, when they beat DJK Waldberg 16-1.

Bayern boss Nangelsman spoke after the game where he praised youngster Jamal Musiala.

“Musiala has good forward activity. Somehow he seems to have a magnet between his legs, the ball keeps falling to him,” Nagelsmann said (as captured by Tz).

On his part, Muslara said it was all about having fun and scoring as much as possible.

“That was a lot of fun. Free your mind, have fun, score goals. That was cool. We wanted to score more and more goals and kept going. I always try to give 100% and have fun,” said Musiala.
