Bayern Begin Cup Defence With Big Win

Bayern Munich began their defence of the DFB Pokal title with a 4-1 win over German third division side, Preussen Munster.

The win also helped the Bavarians bounce back from last weekend's disappointing 0-2 loss to bitter rivals, Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup final.

The first goal of the match came through German World cup winner, Mario Gotze.

Gotze was picked-up by a fantastic cross from Lewandoski, and the German international nodded home for the opener in the 19th minute. 

Thomas Muller made it two ten minutes later. The lanky midfielder had an easy finish, slotting the ball past the goalkeeper for the second goal of the match.

The match headed for the break with Bayern enjoying a 2-0 lead.

In the second half, Bayern continued where they left off, dominating possession.

Austrian, David Alaba, then added the third goal to put his name among the goal scorers with a great strike from range.

From there, it was all Bayern as substitute Pizarro also registered a goal in the 73rd minute to make it 4-0.

The home side managed to get a consolation goal towards the end after being rewarded with a penalty to make it 4-1. Krohne converts the penalty coolly, sending Neuer the wrong way. 

Lewandoski failed to increase the scoring in additional time, missing a penalty.
