Bayern, Schalke post wins at German Cup

BERLIN - Treble winners Bayern Munich launched their domestic season with a 5-0 win at fourth division club BSV Rehden in the German Cup first round on Monday with Thomas Mueller grabbing a hat trick.

Bayern, which became the first German team to win the Champions League as well as the domestic double last season, start their Bundesliga season against Borussia Moenchengladbach on Friday.

The Bavarians were by no means firing on all cylinders when Xherdan Shaqiri tapped in from close range for the lead in the 18th minute.

Mueller then struck three times, including a spot kick as the amateurs fought desperately but could not match their opponents’ pace and quick passing.

Arjen Robben completed the scoring with a low shot two minutes from time.

Schalke 04 also joined them in the second round after battling to a narrow 2-0 win against fifth-tier Noettingen. Reuters
