Kingsley Coman’s double paved the way to a comprehensive and ruthless 4-0 rout.
MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich picked up where it left off in the Champions League, starting its title defense with a 4-0 rout of Atlético Madrid on Wednesday after overcoming the club’s first coronavirus case.
Kingsley Coman netted twice as Bayern took its winning streak to 12 straight games in Europe’s premier competition, with Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso also scoring.
The buildup was overshadowed by Serge Gnabry testing positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday after he had taken part in the team’s final training session for the game.
“It was a shock even if it was clear it would happen,” Goretzka said.
Local health authorities gave the go-ahead for the match to proceed as planned after Gnabry’s teammates tested negative in further tests conducted early Wednesday.
No fans were allowed as per restrictions previously announced due to rising infections in
