FC Bayern Munich has also won its third Champions League game this season.

Leroy Sané (2), Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mané and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored against Viktoria Pilsen to secure a 5-0 (3-0) victory.

Inter Milan and FC Barcelona meet in Group C in the evening (9 p.m.).

Both have scored three points so far.

The German record champions have been unbeaten in 31 group games in the Champions League and overtaken Real Madrid, who had 30 unbeaten games between 2012 and 2017.

Compared to the easy 4-0 league win against Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann changed his starting lineup to four positions: In addition to the two corona infected Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich, Benjamin Pavard and Marcel Sabitzer also received a break.

Instead, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui made the starting eleven.

The roles were clearly divided: here the hosts, who started with two wins at Inter Milan and against FC Barcelona, ​​there the guests from the Czech Republic who still have no points.

The course of the game developed accordingly - powerful Bayern created chance after chance, the Czech champions tried to limit the damage.

However, this only worked for a few minutes before Sané chased the ball under the crossbar after a one-two with Musiala (7th minute).

Shortly thereafter, Goretza put the ball on for Gnabry, who deliberately completed the goal from almost 15 meters into the lower right corner of the goal (13th minute).

The preliminary decision then after only 21 minutes: Mané beat several guest games with a great solo run and beat Pilsen's goalkeeper Tvrdon with a powerful shot.

In the second half, too, overwhelmed guests could not get the Munich offensive under control: Sané increased to 4:0 (50th), before substitute Choupo-Moting scored to make it 5:0 (59th).

With the win, the Munich team extended an impressive series: since the 2-3 win against Manchester City in December 2013, they have won 25 games and drawn one in front of their home crowd in the group stage of the Champions League.

The two teams will face each other again next week.

Then the people of Munich travel to Pilsen.

Kick-off is Wednesday, 9 p.m. (TV: Dazn).

Before that, FC Bayern is going to the Bundesliga top game at Borussia Dortmund (Saturday, 6.30 p.m., TV: Sky).
