Corentin Tolisso Scores Brilliant Goal As Bayern Munich Thrash Atletico Madrid

Corentin Tolisso scored the goal of the game on Wednesday night, as Bayern Munich opened the defence of their Champions League title by hammering Atletico Madrid.

Bayern were undoubtedly the kings of Europe last season and won their sixth European title by beating PSG in the Champions League final in August.

It didn't take them long to answer any questions about whether they could be one of the few clubs to retain it.

In a group with Lokomotiv Moscow and Red Bull Salzburg, Hansi Flick's men would have expected the game against Atleti to be the toughest in their group.

If that is the case then the rest of the group is going to be pretty easy, as the German's strolled to a 4-0 win, with Tolisso scoring the best of the lot.

Bayern's latest European campaign started in the same way as their last one had ended, with Kingsley Coman opening the scoring, with just 28 minutes on the clock.

Coman was involved again as the German champions doubled their lead, the Frenchman crossing for Leon Goretzka to score.

Diego Simeone's side thought they had got one back in the second half but Luis Suarez was stood in an offside position from Joao Felix's shot.

Tolisso's strike in the 66th minute all but ended the game for the Bundesliga side but there was till time for them to pile on more misery.

Just six minutes later Coman was on the scoresheet once again as he twisted Felipe on way then the other before striking past Jan Oblak.

Bayern are hoping to become only the second team to retain the Champions League title, since the competition reformed in 1992, following in Real Madrid's footsteps.

Los Blancos, who opened their own Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Shakhtar earlier on Wednesday, have become European champions on 13 occasions and won it three years in-a-row between 2016 and 2018.

Suarez will be looking forward to seeing the back of the Germans though, having lost 8-2 in last season's semi-final and 4-0 on Wednesday. Unfortunately for him he'll meet them again in December.
