Carlo Ancelotti decided to play with his ideal starting 11 despite they comfortable lead the Bundesliga. The only change the Italian manager did in his line-uo was in the defense. Mats Hummels didn’t play and Jerome Boating replaced him after recovering from a long injury. Ancelotti couldn’t count with his goalkeeper Neuer, who is expected to return against Real Madrid and Thomas Müller, who this season has not been in the his usual line-up in Champions League.

The team managed by Ancelotti started really good the game and in the 10th minute they already scored the second goal, from a great free kick of the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski. The team managed by Carlo Ancelotti was creating a lot of chances, and it looked like they were going to score the third one but Arturo Vidal did a defensive mistake and the Portuguese Rapahel Guerreiro scored the first goal for Tuchel’s side.
At the beginning of the second half, Real Madrid former player Robben scored the third goal for Bayern Munich from a great counterattack, started with a great pass from Ribery that the Dutch finished it with a great shot. In the 69th minute Robert Lewansowski scored the the fourth goal form a penalty kick.
