Bayern Munich vs. Schalke 04 - Football Match Report

Coman celebrates scoring for Bayern during their Champions League final against PSG

Coman celebrates scoring for Bayern during their Champions League final against PSG

Bayern Munich, victor of the treble last season, started the new season without showing any mercy and overcame Schalke 8-0 in the 2020-21 Bundesliga.

Several other milestones were achieved during the thrashing with veteran Thomas Muller scoring his 200th competitive goal for the club, with only three players getting more since Bayern were promoted to the top division in 1965.

Germany winger Leroy Sané starred on Friday and scored on his Bayern debut and Jamal Musiala became Bayern's youngest ever goal-scorer at 17 years, 205 days, but otherwise it was business as usual as they totally dominated and the visitors tried limiting the damage.

With the biggest opening win in Bundesliga history, Bayern showed it had lost none of sharpness that helped them to lift the Champions League trophy less than a month ago in dominant fashion.

The icing on the cake came from youngster Musiala who came off the bench to score his first Bundesliga goal late on as Bayern Munich wrapped up the massive win.

'Of course, I was at Schalke for a long time, ' Sane said. "This is now a benchmark for both Gnabry and Sane and the whole team".

TikTok vowed to fight the Trump crackdown in court, saying it impedes a tool "for entertainment, self-expression and connection". The app is popular among Chinese students, ex-pats and Americans who have personal and business relationships in China.

Bayern Munich begin the new footballing season where they left off, scoring goals for fun.

We might have had the assist of the season on the very first day itself.

Gnabry got his second two minutes after the break before completing his hat-trick just before the hour mark.

Hansi Flick's side already had an incredible front line last season, with Robert Lewandowski leading the line alongside Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller and one of Ivan Perisic or Kingsley Coman. We have to shake ourselves now, accept this bitter defeat and show the reaction against Werder Bremen that we expect of ourselves. He clumsily brought down Lewandowski for the penalty that led to Bayern's third goal and made just two successful tackles during a game to forget.

"Bayern were in sensationally good form", said Wagner, whose team has failed to win any of their last 17 league matches. "We didn't play well; Bayern were outstanding".
