Bayern thrash Hamburg, BVB lose

Bayern Munich booked their place in the final with Gladbach after a strong performance against Hamburg

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund averted a first meeting of the season by winning and losing their respective semi-final ties in the Telekom Cup, a pre-season tournament in Monchengladbach.

Bayern demolished Bundesliga rivals Hamburg 4-0 in their first real test under new coach Pep Guardiola.

New Bayern midfielder Thiago Alcantara shone on his debut less than a week after joining the champions, although the goals were scored by Jerome Boateng, Mario Mandzukic, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller.

Hamburg could perhaps be grateful that the game lasted only an hour and not 90 minutes as memories of their 9-2 humbling in Munich last season sprang to mind. For Guardiola, however, it was an ideal start to life as Bayern coach.

“We're happy,” he said to Sat.1 television. “We're in the final and our defenders pushed forwards well.”

Dortmund, meanwhile, fell to a late penalty in a 1-0 defeat against the hosts, Borussia Monchengladbach.

A Filip Daems penalty put Gladbach in the final, despite Dortmund controlling their semi-final clash at the Borussia Park stadium.

Elsewhere, Augsburg picked up a notable victory against ambitious Ligue 1 side Monaco with Sascha Molders on target in a 1-0 win.

Monaco, coached by former Chelsea coach Claudio Ranieri, had new signings Radamel Falcao and Joao Moutinho in their starting XI.

Stuttgart also picked up a confidence-boosting win ahead of their first appointment of the season in the Europa League at the start of next month by defeating Valencia 1-0, thanks to a Daniel Schwaab goal.
