FC Bayern München made history as they became the first club to register ten consecutive UEFA Champions League victories – breaking the record they shared with the FC Barcelona class of 2002/03 – following a 3-1 win at PFC CSKA Moskva.
In spite of their positive start, the Army Men were overwhelmed by an authoritative performance from the holders. Beautifully taken goals from Arjen Robben and Mario Götze either side of half-time put Josep Guardiola's team in control of the Group D contest. Keisuke Honda's 62nd-minute penalty gave CSKA a glimmer of hope, optimism which was extinguished when Thomas Müller converted a spot kick of his own soon after.
Unfortunately we didn't make the most of chances we created. I am proud of the way we played in the second half. I am sorry that we missed our chances.
Leonid Slutski, CSKA coach
I’m very proud, especially because we secured these victories in such a dominant fashion. Ten consecutive victories in Europe is very special.
Josep Guardiola, Bayern coach
