Watch: Cheeky Thiago Freekick Helps Bayern Munich To Comfortable Win

They're perhaps slipping under the radar in Europe this season but Bayern Munich still began their Champions League in style, cruising comfortably to a 3-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.

But it was a late Thomas Muller goal that had the home fans swooning at the Allianz Arena.

Earlier goals from Robert Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman had all but sealed the three points for five-time winners of the competition, but the German giants continued to press forward and the thirty-year-old finished off a brazen set-piece in additional time.

However, it was all about the free-taker - Thiago Alcantara. The Spanish midfielder dinked the ball over the Serbian side's wall, leaving his teammate with little to do but roll the ball home.

One man that will be taking note of tonight's performance in Munich will be Mauricio Pochettino given Tottenham are also drawn in the Group B. Earlier on in the evening, they produced a below-par performance away to Olympiacos, only managing a 2-2 draw.

The London side's next game in Europe will be at home against no other than Bayern Munich in two weeks' time.
