  • GOAL! BAYERN TAKE THE LEAD! Lewandowski marks his 100th Champions League game with a goal! Kimmich finds Coman down the right wing, who does brilliantly to skip past Grimaldo and sneak into the box, before chipping a lovely cross towards Lewandowski at the far post. The striker meets it and powers his header down and into the back of the net. He simply couldn’t miss from there! Bayern lead 1-0.

  • GOAL! SANE MAKES IT 3-1! Once again it’s a superb ball from Kimmich to pick out Davies in behind the Benfica defence and the left-back heads the ball back to Sane, who is unmarked in the box and Sane volleys it into the bottom right corner of the net. Great finish by Sane and he gets Bayern off to the perfect start in the second half!
