Thiago Pulled Off Cheeky ‘No-Look’ Free-Kick Assist For Thomas Muller To Score Bayern Munich's Third Goal

Thiago Pulled Off Cheeky ‘No-Look’ Free-Kick Assist For Thomas Muller To Score Bayern Munich's Third Goal

Thiago successfully pulled off a sensational 'no-look' free-kick to allow Thomas Muller to score Bayern Munich's third.

The Bavarians hosted Red Star Belgrade at the Allianz Arena in their opening Group B clash in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

Thiago stood over the ball for a free-kick in injury time alongside Joshua Kimmich and completely caught the Red Star players daydreaming with his cheeky pass.

The 28-year-old midfielder lofted the ball straight over the wall and into the path of Thomas Muller, whose first-time shot was slotted coolly past Milan Borjan.

Kingsley Coman opened the scoring for Niko Kovac's men in the first half before Robert Lewandowski doubled their advantage in the second half.

The Bayern Munich boss was happy with his side's performance and their convincing opening win in the Champions League over Red Star.

"You have to win the first game of the competition, that's important," Kovac said.

"Yes, we could have scored more, but we should be happy with three goals in the end.

"I think the team was very focussed. Maybe we missed the last touch a bit."

Red Star are in Group B alongside Olympiacos and Tottenham Hotspur, who drew 2-2 in their opening clash in the competition.

And Red Star boss Vladan Milojevic admitted that it would be tough to qualify for the knockout stages with the stiff competition from Spurs and Bayern Munich.

"It goes without saying that my team had quite a few uncompleted passes and these were punished by our opponents," he said.

"Bayern and Tottenham are the favourites in the group, and we saw why tonight.

"We are aware that we played against a possible winner of the Champions League."

How far will Bayern Munich progress in the Champions League?
