Bayern Munich ease to victory over Atletico Madrid

Champions League title holders Bayern Munich extended their record run to 12 straight wins in the competition as they thumped Atletico Madrid.

Just 59 days after lifting the 2020 title in Lisbon, Hansi Flick's side were in ominous form again as they made light work of Diego Simeone's usually watertight side.

Winger Kingsley Coman, matchwinner against Paris St-Germain in Lisbon at the end of August, scored in either half of a superb all-round display.

Midfielders Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso also found the back of the net in a near-faultless performance from the German giants.

Only Real Madrid and AC Milan have retained the European Cup since Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest managed the feat in 1980, but few would back against a Bayern repeat this time around.

Bayern were already favourites with the bookmakers before this warning sign, which saw the holders rain in 16 efforts on goal.
