THE NUMBERS TELL the tale of Bayern Munich’s dominance against Viktoria Plzen tonight.

A whopping 706 completed passes (to Plzen’s 154), 76% possession (to 24%), 35 shots on goal (to just one)… oh, and five goals.

Franck Ribery got a goal in either half and David Alaba, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mario Gotze added one apiece for Pep Guardiola’s side in an easy 5-0 win.
