FC Bayern München continued to set the pace in UEFA Champions League Group D with a commanding home victory against FC Viktoria Plzeň.

The European title holders overwhelmed the Czech champions with an imperious display which produced countless chances. Franck Ribéry converted a penalty on 25 minutes to get the Bundesliga leaders started before David Alaba added a rare right-foot finish to double the advantage. Further strikes in the second half from Ribéry and Bastian Schweinsteiger preceded Mario Götze's first competitive goal for Bayern as Josep Guardiola's ensemble maintained their three-point cushion at the top of the section.

  • Bayern stay three points clear at top of Group D
  • Ribéry opens scoring from spot, Alaba doubles half-time lead

Reaction

It was a good performance today but Plzeň did not make it all that difficult for us. We know that we will still face tougher games in the future.

Bayern were a significantly better side tonight and if it had not been for [Matúš] Kozáčik, the result would have been even worse for us.

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    The game comes to and end and the home fans will no doubt be dissapointed the entertainment is over. What a performance from the hosts.
  • Goal
    90+1
    Götze (Bayern) scores!
    Bayern finish the game in style. Arjen Robben has acres of space on the wing to pick out a cross and he sends the ball to the back post where Mario Götze is arriving late. He nips in front of Radim Řezník, kills the ball with one touch and fires a shot past Matúš Kozáčik from six yards.
