Red Star Belgrade 0-6 Bayern Munich Player Ratings

Bayern’s revival under Hansi Flick continued as they hammered Red Star Belgrade 6-0 away from home in the Champions League. Red Star are not easy to beat at home, as shown by their win over Liverpool and draw against Napoli last season, but they were blown away by the Bavarians, with striker Robert Lewandoski scoring four times after the interval.

It therefore comes as no surprise that the Pole was Bayern’s best rated player on the evening according to Bild. In their four games since Flick took over from Niko Kovac, Bayern now boast of a 16-0 record, finding the back of the net sixteen times and conceding none.

With the results on MD5, Bayern and Spurs have now both confirmed their places in the Round of 16.

Bayern Munich 4:0 Borussia Dortmund Player Ratings | BVB crushed in Der Klassiker, Jadon Sancho poor

Bayern’s first game after the departure of Niko Kovac saw the Bavarian giants outclass rivals Borussia Dortmund. It was a rare Der Klassiker where neither of the teams were top of the table, and Bayern ran out deserved winners thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s brace. The Polish striker has now scored on each of the Bundesliga’s opening 11 game weeks- a new record.

Dortmund’s first shot on target only came in the middle of the second half, and they could have no complaints about the result.

The player ratings from German newspaper Bild tell the story- Axel Witsel the only BVB player to emerge with a level of credit, but every Bayern player on the park was better than him. Sancho, Akanji and Hakimi the worst of the lot according to these Bild ratings. Caretaker Bayern manager Flick (1) comprehensively outplayed his opposite number, with Lucien Favre getting a 5.
