Bayern Munich went to Manchester and beat Man City 3-1, but the scoreline was much kinder than the match it represented. Pep Guardiola said it was Bayern's best performance of the season (and they're undefeated in the Bundesliga, remember) as they had 70 percent of possession and had a 3-0 lead before the hour mark.
"To be so dominant against such a big team, we didn't expect an easy game like that," said Arjen Robben. "I think it's also a big compliment to our team but I expected a bit more from City." Ouch.
Clearly this wasn't an enjoyable evening for Man City fans, especially after losing to Aston Villa at the weekend. In fact, the mass misery in the stands at the Etihad reached such a low point that several people opted to stare at other sullen faced supporters (in a creepy, unnerving sort of way) rather than watch the hurtful disappointment on the pitch for one second longer. But I'm still not sure why Roman Abramovich was standing with City fans for the game.
The shirts in this picture will likely prove interchangeable with those of every club Bayern face this season, though. This will probably be a familiar pose for opposing goalkeepers, too...
