Thomas Müller and Robert Lewandowski were on target as Bayern München easily beat a listless FC Barcelona side 3-0 at Camp Nou in the Champions League on Tuesday.


In a first half with few clear-cut chances, Thomas Müller broke the deadlock with 33 minutes played as his shot from distance hit Eric Garcia's back and went into the back of the net.

After the break, Bayern doubled their lead in the 56th minute, when Robert Lewandowski tapped home the rebound after Jamal Musiala hit the post.

Lewandowski made it three with five minutes remaining, smashing the ball into the net after Serge Gnabry's shot rebounded off the post.

Elsewhere, Wolfsburg held on to a 0-0 draw away against Lille despite being reduced to 10 men as a result of John Anthony Brooks' dismissal in the 63rd minute.
