The referee decides to spare Schalke the additional humiliation and brings the contest to the end on the 90-minute mark. This was an intimidating display from Bayern Munich. They took the lead after just three minutes and never relented from that point on. What a team the Bavarians are and what an impact Sane made.

FULL TIME: Bayern Munich 8-0 Schalke

89' 
88' 

Schalke are enjoying a rare spell of possession, with Bayern Munich standing off them for once. Have they given up on 10? There's still plenty time for them to score two more!

87' 

Bayern Munich have a busy schedule ahead of them. They will face Sevilla in the European Super Cup. Then they will take on Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup.

86' 

One of Flick's tasks as Bayern Munich manager is to help bring through the next generation of young players. He has spoken about how he wants to make more use of the academy.

This has been a supreme demonstration from Bayern Munich, but it is also an illustration of how poor Schalke are at the moment. This is just unacceptable from them. Yikes.

This isn't over yet in terms of the scoring. Bayern Munich surely recognise that they can stick double figures past Schalke here. They are still pressing. This has been remarkable.

Into the side netting! That was a decent opportunity for Schalke to get one back, with Raman played through inside the area. The angle was tight, but he could only find the side netting.

PICTURE: It's been far too easy for Bayern

Bayern Munich
68' 

Bayern Munich are cutting through Schalke with such ease. The Bavarians have taken their foot off the pedal a little bit, but they are still creating an abundance of opportunities.

67' 
66' 

And this is Bayern Munich *after* they allowed Thiago to leave for Liverpool this afternoon. What a team they are. They can outscore anymore. They are so potent in attack.

65' 

This has been humiliating for Schalke. After the way they finished last season, you'd have to think that the 2020/21 campaign will be a really difficult one for them. Tough times.

64'

What a save! Tolisso must have thought he'd scored the sixth goal of the match, with the ball played back to the midfielder inside the area, but Fahrmann pulled off a stunning diving save.

63' 
61' 

Will we now see Flick rest some of his more important players with this game already won and the points in the bag? Bayern Munich have a hectic schedule to start the season.

60' 

This has been such a demonstration from Bayern Munich. Sane has already added so much to their attack. Should he remain for, they are going to score a lot of goals this season.

  • Serge Gnabry
    GoalSerge GnabryFC Bayern MunichGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! Bayern Munich 5 (59 mins - Serge Gnabry) Schalke 0. It's a fifth goal for Bayern Munich! Sane was released in behind the Schalke defence, he spun on the edge of the box and played the pass to Gnabry who made no mistake in tucking home the finish! This is emphatic for the Bavarians.

55' 

Will this be another procession in the Bundesliga this season? Bayern Munich started last season poorly, but won it at a canter by the end. Will it be the same story this season?

54' 

It's fair to say Sane has settled in quickly at the his new club. The former Manchester City winger has added some real forward thrust to the Bayern Munich attack, like they needed any more!

53' 
52' 

It's likely we will see quite a bit of rotation from Bayern Munich over the early part of the season. It was only a few weeks ago that they were playing a Champions League final!

This has become another tragic demonstration of how far from the top of the German game Schalke have fallen. They are nowhere even close to Bayern Munich's level right now.

HALF TIME: Bayern Munich 3-0 Schalke. Well, it's fair to say the German and European champions are in charge of this one. There's no way back for Schalke. This is about saving face for them now.

45'

There will be one minute of stoppage time played at the end of the first half.

44'

Off the post! First, Muller has a shot blocked on the line. Then Sule sends a shot towards goal, but his effort comes off the outside of the near post and goes behind. More pressure!

43' 

Hernandez gallops forward. The Frenchman is a very different sort of full back to Davies. He is more adept on the defensive side of the ball, whereas Davies is essentially a winger.

42' 

This has been an impressive show of strength from Bayern Munich in this first half. It's as if they have just carried on from last season without even missing a stride. Exceptional.

40' 
39' 

Of course, Thiago isn't the only player to have left Bayern Munich since the end of last season. Coutinho and Perisic both returned to their parent club. Will they be missed this season?

38' 

A half chance! Harit made a run in behind the Bayern Munich defence and was found by the pass, but Sule tracked back to make the tackle before he could even get a shot away.

37' 

The pressing from Bayern Munich is relentless. Schalke are just trying to gain some confidence by playing a few passes around their defence, but the home side aren't having a bit of it.

36' 

PICTURE: Not much of a fight so far.

Schale just can't keep the ball at the moment and every time Bayern Munich come forward on the attack they look like scoring. This could get really ugly for the away side.

PENALTY KICK TO BAYERN MUNICH! Lewandowski is brought down in the area by Kabak and the referee points to the spot.

29'

Serdar injury? Uh oh. This is not good for Schalke. Serdar looks to have picked up an injury and is off the pitch at the moment. He suffered an injury disrupted season last season too.

28' 
26' 

This has been a difficult first half for Schalke. There was a slight recovery after conceding the opening goal, but there has been nothing like that after the second goal.

25' 

Goretzka was one of the biggest success stories of last season for Bayern Munich. While he arrived at the Allianz Arena as a midfield anchor, he has managed to add goals to his game.

24' 

Miscue from Lewandowski! Sane was played in behind down the left channel, he cut back and waited for teammates before setting up Lewandowski, but he skewed his shot high and wide.

In Lisbon last month, Bayern Munich simply blew away the competition as they strolled to the Champions League title. Nobody could argue that they didn't deserve to finish on top of the pile.

Sule gets lucky! Uth delivered a dangerous cross into the Bayern Munich penalty box from a good position, but Sule got his clearance all wrong. He was fortunate the ball fell kindly to Neuer.

Sane looks to have settled quickly at the Allianz Arena. There is plenty of fluid play between the former Manchester City winger and his new Bayern Munich teammates.

15' 

Pavard starts for Bayern Munich at right back this evening. There has been some speculation of late that the Bavarians are in for Ajax full back Sergino Dest. He would be a shrewd addition.

14' 

Coman is missing for Bayern Munich this evening. The French winger is self-isolating. We'll likely see a lot of that this season as football faces up to the new normal in the Covid-19 world.

13' 
12' 

Schalke have recovered a little from that spell where it seemed Bayern Munich would score every single time they came forward. Although the home side are certainly still on top.

11' 

Bayern Munich aren't the only team playing this evening to have lost an influential central midfielder. Schalke lost McKennie, who joined Juventus on an initial loan deal last month.

The big Bayern Munich-related news today was the announcement of Thiago's switch to Liverpool. Of course, that had been in the pipeline for a while, but he is a big loss to the Bavarians.

Well, Bayern Munich have started this season like they finished last season. The same could be said for Schalke. They look all over the place at the back. They can't handle the home side.
