Champions Bayern Make Light Work Of Leverkusen

Bayern Munich showed no signs of slipping up as they cruised to a 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Serge Gnabry was handed his first Bundesliga start for the Bavarians , while the likes of James Rodriguez and David Alaba started on the bench.

It was Leverkusen who got off to the better start as they took the lead in the seventh minute after Wendell converted a penalty.

Bayern hit back straight away as Corentin Tolisso slotted home for his first league goal of the season.

The champions completed the turnaround in the 19th minutes thanks to Arjen Robben's impressive volley.

It was proved to be the same trend in the second half, as Niko Kovavc's charges dominated the ecounter although chances were hard to come by.

Leverkusen's chances of a comeback took a knock in the 80th minute when Karim Bellarabi was shown a straight red card for a stamp on Rafinha just four minutes after coming on a substitute.

The win was sealed in the 89th minute when second-half substitute James Rodriguez nodded home a cross from Thiago Alcantara.
