3 goals inside 20 minutes? Just Bayern Munich being Bayern Munich.

At home Bayern Munich are next to unstoppable. Bayern knows that. Olympiakos knows that. The only question is can Olympiakos hang on to grind out a defensive draw, and perhaps snag a goal on the counterattack?

Well if the first half is any indication, the answer to that question is "No" because Bayern Munich absolutely eviscerated the Greek side in the first 20 minutes, hanging three goals on them from Bayern Munich's potent attacking force.

Douglas Costa got the party started, pouncing on a rebound following a thunderous shot from Jerome Boateng inside the first 10 minutes.

Minutes later it was Robert Lewandowski, who it turns out is completely lethal when you leave him unmarked.

Rounding it off was Thomas Müller who got the easy tap-in that deserves to be added to training reels the world over on how to read opposition positional breakdowns.

Just another half of Bayern Munich out there being Bayern Munich.
