Bayern Munich began the Bundesliga on a high note against Schalke 04 on Friday, beating them 8:0. Goals from the usual culprits of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller were accompanied by efforts from former Schalke players Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sané in his Bayern Munich debut, a hattrick from Serge Gnabry and an Arjen Robben esque shot from 17 year old Jamal Musiala.
Bayern look to have started their title defence strongly and seem to have picked up from where they left last season.
Two teams that regularly feature in the latter stages of European competitions, the shared history of both Chelsea and Bayern Munich is a short but storied one. Their 2020 fixtures will no doubt be played in the shadow of the 2012 Champions League final, the highest point of Chelsea’s history but a harrowing memory for any and all Bayern fans.
