Bayern Munich stormed into the second round of the German Cup with a 12-0 thrashing of fifth-tier Bremer SV. Striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored four and assisted three goals as Bayern Munich claimed their biggest win in 24 years. Youngster Jamal Musiala scored twice while Malik Tillman, Leroy Sane, Michael Cuisance, Bouna Sarr, and Corentin Tolisso also got on the scoresheet on Wednesday.
Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann left stars like Robert Lewandowski, Leon Goretzka and Manuel Neuer in Munich for this trip to Bremen, while Dayot Upamecano, Alphonso Davies and Serge Gnabry were on the bench. But the visitors were relentless from the starting whistle even without their big-name players.
