Bayern make it six out of six with win over Tottenham

Bayern Munich became only the seventh team to win all six group games in the Champions League

Bayern Munich completed a perfect six victories in Champions League Group B with a 3-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday with Kingsley Coman, Thomas Mueller and Philippe Coutinho all on target.

Bayern had already qualified for the last 16 as group winners and with Tottenham also through as runners-up with 10 points there was little at stake but the hosts turned on the style.

They became only the seventh team to win all six group games in the Champions League.

The only bright spot for a much-changed Tottenham side was a goal for 19-year-old Ryan Sessegnon whose thumping 20th-minute equaliser on his first start in the competition made him the club’s youngest scorer in the Champions League.

French forward Coman slotted Bayern ahead in the 14th minute after good work by Serge Gnabry but did not last much longer after appearing to suffer a nasty knee injury.

Mueller, who replaced the stricken Coman, restored Bayern’s lead shortly before halftime and Coutinho punished Tottenham’s defence for standing off when he bent a low shot past Paulo Gazzaniga in the 64th minute.

Results from the Champions League on Wednesday:

Bayern Munich 3
Tottenham 1

Man City 4

Shakhtar Donetsk 0
