To say it opened the floodgates would be an understatement, as Bayern were 5-0 to the good at the interval – with Choupo Moting having secured the matchball with a hat-trick.
Two goals in quick succession immediately after the interval for Malik Tillman and Jamal Musiala were hammer blows to Bremer.

Leroy Sane has come under a bit of pressure from Bayern fans, and he secured a confidence-boosting goal on 65 minutes.
Bremer, who play in the fifth tier in Germany, were reduced to 10 men on 76 minutes when Ugo Mario Nobile was shown a straight red card.
Bayern were a class above with the same amount of players on the field, and with a numerical superiority they ran in four goals in the final 10 minutes to complete a remarkable win.
