Bayern smash seven past Spurs

UEFA Champions League

Bayern Munich were in a rampant mood as they humiliated Tottenham Hotspur 7-2 in their UEFA Champions League Group B encounter in London.

Spurs broke the deadlock on 12 minutes as Moussa Sissoko sent Son Heung-Min on goal, and the South Korean managed to fire into the far corner past Manuel Neuer.

The joy was short-lived though as Bayern restored parity three minutes later through Joshua Kimmich, who skipped past Sissoko before unleashing a stinging low effort.

The game suffered a bit of a lull at the midway point of the first stanza, but Bayern completed the turnaround on the stroke of halftime courtesy of a stunning finish from Robert Lewandowski.

The Bavarians picked up from where they left off as Serge Gnabry cut onto his right foot before buryin the ball into the far corner. Gnabry was not done there as the Germany international bagged his second three minutes later with another fine individual effort that ended with a bottom-corner finish.

The drama continued in the 59th minute when Spurs were awarded a penalty when Kingsley Coman was adjudged to have fouled Danny Rose. Kane stepped up and slotted home to halve the deficit.

Both coaches opted for changes in the final 20 minutes as Spurs introduced Lucas Moura for Dele Alli, while Niko Kovac threw on Ivan Perisic.

However, Bayern sealed the win with seven minutes remaining as Thiago Alcantara played in Gnabry with a neat ball over the top and the German winger calmly slotted home for his hat-trick.

There was enough time for a sixth goal through Lewandowski's neat first-time finish in the 10-yard are while Gnabry completed the rout with his fourth and Bayern's seventh in the 88th minute.
