The Bavarians did not make it easy for themselves.
Reduced to ten for forty minutes, Bayern struggled to win on the Wolfsburg lawn (4-2) on Sunday evening.
Still, Julian Nagelsmann's men couldn't imagine a better start.
With three goals in less than 20 minutes, including a brace from former Parisian Kingsley Coman, the match already seemed over.

But after having already conceded a goal just before half-time, Bayern put themselves in danger with the exclusion of Joshua Kimmich in the 54th.
By playing 40 minutes outnumbered, the Munich residents still emerged victorious from their trip to Wolfsburg, thanks in particular to a goal from Jamal Musiala.
Bayern take the lead in the championship
Nine days before the round of 16 first leg of the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain, they won their eleventh success of the season and regained first place in the Bundesliga.
They now have 40 points, one more from Union Berlin (39), and three more from Borussia Dortmund (37).
Crossed behind the scenes by a strong zone of turbulence after the media release of Manuel Neuer, critical of the management of the club, the Munich residents will host VfL Bochum next Saturday for the 20th day, before moving to the Parc des Princes on February 14.
