Bayern Munich triumphs against 10-men Anderlecht

Despite what some may have considered to be quite a one-sided game, Bayern Munich was seen to be ‘struggling’ against an Anderlecht side that was clearly an outsider, despite claiming a 3-0 victory that did not reflect the progress of the game at all.
