Sane stars as Bayern Munich beat Inter Milan

Bayern Munich (six) and Inter Milan (three) have been crowned European champions between them nine times

Bayern Munich got their Champions League campaign off to a strong start as Leroy Sane inspired the German champions to victory in their Group C opener at Inter Milan.

Former Manchester City winger Sane showed great control before rounding goalkeeper Andre Onana and heading home to open the scoring midway through the first half.

Bayern secured the points with an own goal from Danilo D’Ambrosio, after a deft one-two involving Sane and Kingsley Coman.

It was just the start that Bayern were looking for in a group which also contains Barcelona – who they will receive next Tuesday – and which defeated Viktoria Plzen 5-1.

Bayern were impressive throughout the match and managed 21 shots on goal, 11 of which were on target.

They might have won by a nicer margin, but Onana did well to keep former Bayern striker Sadio Mane out of Liverpool.

Inter will be looking to bounce back when they travel to the Czech Republic to face Viktoria Plzen next Tuesday.
