Champions League - Record breakers Bayern win 10th in a row


Champions League, Group D, Arena-Khimki – CSKA Moscow 1 (Honda pen. 61’) Bayern Munich 3 (Robben 17’, Goetze 56’, Mueller pen. 65’).

Eurosport - Bayern Munich celebrate a goal at CSKA Moscow
Bayern Munich shrugged off an injury crisis to beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Russia and extend their winning Champions League streak to a record 10 matches.
In horrendous conditions on a terrible pitch, Arjen Robben opened the scoring with a neat finish from Thomas Mueller’s cut-back.
Bayern – who had already qualified – were having more of the possession but fewer opportunities, with Keisuke Honda missing two gilt-edged chances in quick succession early in the second half.
And the Germans made them pay as Mario Goetze ran through the defence to add a superb second.
Honda did pull one back from the spot after Dante was harshly adjudged to have handled in the box, but Bayern were soon awarded a penalty of their own, which Mueller duly converted.
With Manchester City also through before this matchday, CSKA must now avoid defeat at Viktoria Plzen in their final game to secure a place in the Europa League.
