Bayern Munich beat Lokomotiv Moscow, Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich scored the goals as holders
Bayern Munich recorded their 13th successive
UEFA Champions League win with a hard-fought 2-1 victory away to Lokomotiv Moscow in Group A.
Bayern Munich beat Lokomotiv Moscow, though Lokomotiv got off to a better start but Bayern were
dominant for long spells,
Leon Goretzka handing them an early lead. Lokomotiv’s Aleksey Miranchuk leveled the scores with
20 minutes to go, but Joshua Kimmich soon restored the lead.
The Bavarians started with Manuel Neuer in goal and Benjamin Pavard, Niklas Süle, David Alaba
and Lucas Hernández in a back four.
Kimmich and Goretzka anchored a midfield featuring Thomas Müller, Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman,
with Robert Lewandowski up front. Javi Martínez and Serge Gnabry came on for Goretzka and Müller at
half-time, Douglas Costa taking over from Coman with 20 minutes to go.
Bayern will be back in action on Saturday when they travel to face Köln in the Bundesliga.
