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.

Player Ratings Bayern-Belgrade 3:0 | FCB open campaign with victory over Crvena Zvezda

Bayern put their 1:1 draw over the weekend against Leipzig behind them as they began their UCL campaign with a 3:0 win over Belgrade. With the other group game between Tottenham and Olympiacos ending in a 2:2 draw, Bayern are currently top of their group.

The Red Star Belgrade side that played this evening had some familiar names in their starting lineup- Marko Marin (their skipper), Jose Canas (ex Swansea), Rajiv van La Parra (ex Huddersfield, Brighton and Wolves).

Here are the player ratings from Bild- a good day at the office for Bayern’s midfielders and forwards.

Bayern’s goals in the game came through Coman, Lewandowski and Muller, the last of whom also became the club’s most capped UCL forward.

Who will German teams face in the group stage of the Champions League?

Here is a look at what teams the Bundesliga clubs will face as opponents in the group stage of the 2019/2020 Champions League.

Bayern are in Group B with Tottenham Hotspur, Olympiakos and Red Star Belgrade.

BVB are in Group E with Barcelona, Inter Milan and Slavia Praha

Leipzig are in Group G with Zenit St Petersburg, SL Benfica and Olympique Lyonnais.

Leverkusen are in Group D along with Juve, Atletico and Lokomotiv Moscow

In our opinion, Bayern’s chances of qualifying are the best, followed by Leipzig’s. Dortmund have Barcelona and an Inter team coached by Antonio Conte in theirs, while Leverkusen have to contend with Ronaldo’s Juve and Simeone’s Atleti- a pretty tough ask of them.
