It may be preseason friendlies but for manager Carlo Ancelotti they are definitely turning into a wakeup call as Bayern Munich were thrashed 3-0 by Liverpool on Tuesday at the Allianz Arena in the Audi Cup. After being decimated by Arsenal, AC Milan and Inter Milan in their International Champions Cup campaign, Bayern fans expected a better performance from Bundesliga’s defending champions, who were having a star studded line-up with the likes of Franck Ribery, Robert Lewandowski against a resurgent Liverpool side.
Liverpool’s Sadio Mane introduced himself in the early stages of the game when the striker made a darting run with Roberto Firmino’s through ball and blasted a left footed shot at the top right corner in the 7th minute.
A famished Jurgen Klopp’s side, who were already running riots on the pitch got rewarded in the 34th minute when Mohamed Salah’s header made it 2-0 for the visitors.
England striker Daniel Sturridge, who seemingly sustained an injury in his thigh, completed the humiliation when he produced a moment of magic by chipping home the third goal for the Anfield side in the 83rd minute of the game.
