Douglas Costa Bayern's brightest spark in romp over Olympiakos

Three first-half goals propelled Bayern Munich comfortably past Olympiakos in Group F.
The ESPN FC team debate which European power is in better form between Spanish side Barcelona or German side Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich cruised to their ninth Champions League home win in succession with a comfortable 4-0 win against Olympiakos.

A triple strike in the opening 20 minutes by Douglas Costa, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller put the result beyond doubt. The German champions applied cruise control in the second half after Holger Badstuber's dismissal on 52 minutes. Frenchman Kingsley Coman added the final goal of the evening after 69 minutes for buoyant Bayern as the visitors were seemingly happy to...

Lewandowski, Aubameyang and the race to reach 30 Bundesliga goals

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Dan Thomas discuss Robert Lewandowski's agent's comments on Premier League interest.

On Friday, Borussia Dortmund put in their worst league performance since April and suffered a deserved 3-1 defeat at Hamburg, their new bogey team. Dortmund were erratic at the back, gifting the opposition all three goals, and uninspired in attack, not least because striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a nondescript game.

Yet even on this dismal night, the Gabon international underlined why he might be the biggest marvel of the season so far. In fact, maybe on this night more than ever.

Bayern Munich progress in Champions League is Pep Guardiola's next objective

Mario Gotze is targeting a January return as he continues his rehabilitation following a thigh problem.

Champions League top spot is on the line when Bayern Munich host Olympiakos on Tuesday.

With two games remaining, both sides are locked on nine points and each need a point to qualify for the knockout stages. However, anything other than a comfortable Bayern win against the Greek champions would be a huge surprise.

The Bavarians will clearly fancy their chances at their Munich fortress, having cruised to eight Champions League wins in a row on home soil -- including an impressive 5-1 demolition...

David Alaba, Thomas Muller guide Bayern Munich past Schalke

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola isn't worried by a reported fallout between Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski.

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany -- Bayern Munich resumed normal service after a fortnight's international break with an edgy 3-1 away win against Schalke 04 on Saturday.

David Alaba's deflected shot put Bayern ahead after only nine minutes before Maximilian Meyer equalised for the Royal Blues eight minutes later on the break.

Bayern were sluggish for long periods after conceding before record signing Javi Martinez restored the team's lead after 69 minutes with a fine header. Thomas Muller sealed the...

Xabi Alonso scores angle-defying goal in Bayern Munich training

There is an acceptance that Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso has ridiculous technique. 

The Spain international's passing is a thing of beauty and he's even been known to score from inside his own half.

To make us mere mortals feel even worse, Alonso has done this ...

The swerve! The nonchalance! Oh, Xabi, you excellent...
