Good night

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

That's all from me on a sobering night for the Scottish champions. Bayern Munich were light years better and Celtic just couldn't live with their pace and intensity.

The visitors contributed to their own downfall with some sloppy defending for the goals and were just too meek in the first 45 minutes.

Can they make amends with a stirring show against the same opponents in Glasgow at the end of the month?

As many predicted before a ball was kicked, it looks like a straight fight with Anderlecht for third place and a Europa League spot. Celtic are in the driving seat there after their win in Brussels, so it's not all doom and gloom.

'I'd rather lose playing how we want to play'

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers won't be going for a 4-6-0 formation any time soon by the sounds of things in his post-match media conference.

"I think we decide how we play," he says. "There was nothing about being pragmatic for the goals that we conceded. We didn’t defend our box well enough from the crosses coming in and we can do better with those.

"I’d rather lose a game playing how we want to play and how we want to work as opposed to sitting in and defending for 90 minutes and still lose if that’s the case. Myself and my staff and the players, we had a plan going into the game. There was lots of positives for us and something for us to look forward to for the second game against them at Celtic Park."

Quick turnaround for Celtic

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Celtic can't afford to feel sorry for themselves after this harsh lesson in Munich because they have a big game coming up on Saturday.

He's had a grumble about the scheduling but Brendan Rodgers must now lift his squad for a lunchtime kick off with Hibs at Hampden in the League Cup semi-final.

Those two played out a cracking 2-2 draw in the league last month.

Will Celtic, the trophy holders, take their unbeaten domestic run to 60 games at the weekend?

Rodgers disappointed with goals

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Speaking to BT Sports, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said: "Disappointed with the goals. There were lots of moments in the game when we looked comfortable. At times when we went into their half we looked very good.

"Lots of the game I was really pleased with.

"Once they get the first goal it gives them the confidence. In the goals we could have been better than we were.

"The guys gave an honest performance and I was happy with that. We have to respect where we are in terms of the players we're playing against. Hopefully at home we can be better, create our chances and take them."

Jospeh Schiavone: Bayern a far better team. Fact. But in the end it's all about gathering the cash for 10 in a row.

Colin Hunter: Celtic not up to this level... long way to go.

Graeme Buxton: No shame in that. Many great teams get beat by even more.

'It's mentally tough'

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

"We were a little bit unlucky the way we’ve managed to try and keep the ball but they’re a quality side and that’s what happens when you come over here at times," Celtic captain Scott Brown tells BT Sport.

"We tried to put them under pressure. We tried to play our own game. We had to try and keep the ball and create chances and we had a couple of chances that we were a little bit unlucky with, especially in the second half.

"It’s mentally tough but you have to keep working hard. You’ve got to keep compact. We can’t give up because it could be seven, eight, nine - nothing if we do.

"The possession wasn’t maybe as good as it could have been but we’ve tried to play our game and that’s what you have to do in the Champions League and that’s why we try to get better every season as it goes on and that's what the manager wants us to do."

!K3 4N3KW3: Celtic are usually, if not always, outclassed by teams outside Scotland.

Johnjo Kenny: Different footballing planets. Bayern Munich dominate their league too (usually). Good second half performance from Celtic.

Adam Oliver: Tbf to Celtic they did well keeping it down to 3 so fair play

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Brendan Rodgers talked about a "positive mindset" and scoring goals away from home in yesterday's media conference but is that the right approach?

Losing Jozo Simunovic to injury is unfortunate and the Celtic manager's defensive options were limited but was the team set up properly? Would a stuffy 5-4-1 have made any difference?

Home comfort for Bayern

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Bayern Munich boast a formidable record on their own patch. That's 11 consecutive victories in Champions League group games since a 3-2 defeat by Manchester City in December 2013.

Tonight's result was never in doubt, with Celtic fortunate not to be behind before Thomas Muller made the breakthrough on 17 minutes.

'Celtic need a better plan'

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

There probably should have been more goals for Bayern Munich for the amount of possession and chances that they’ve had. Celtic will happy to get out of it with 3-0. They made a couple of chances late on in this game which will give them a little bit of confidence maybe for the return, but they’ve got to come up with some better plan than what they had tonight. They’ve got to defend better but they’ve also got to have some sort of plan that when they have the ball they just can’t keep giving it away when they’re under pressure.

PSG add a late fourth

FT: Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Angel Di Maria rounds off a good night for Group B leaders Paris St-Germain as they see off Anderlecht 4-0 to maintain their 100% record.

FULL-TIME Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

The final whistle puts Celtic out of their misery on another chastening night in Europe. The visitors might have got a goal back as Bayern took their foot off the pedal late on and left a few gaps at the back but it was a very one-sided contest.

Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich scored in the first half, with Mat Hummels adding a simple header from a corner.

GREAT SAVE!

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Craig Gordon has been kept very busy this evening and the Celtic keeper saves his best for last as he somehow keeps out a powerful header from Thomas Muller.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Three minutes of stoppage-time signalled as Celtic prepare to take a corner. Moussa Dembele gets something on it and Scott Brown, one of several offside players, can only touch it on to the post from three yards.

CLOSE!

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Bayern have been a bit slack over the past five minutes or so but Arturo Vidal sparks the hosts back into life with a fizzing striker that flashes just wide.

The Chile international then hammers a shot straight at Craig Gordon from a ball over the top. He really should be scoring from there; just near the penalty spot.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Scott Sinclair curls a cracker into the far corner but it doesn't count since he was a fraction offside as he gathers a scuffed pass from Moussa Dembele.

Lessons to be learned

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

Lots of lessons to be learned again tonight. Simple lessons. Defending lessons. You’ve got to really do something about the defending side of the game. We know that they can play but when you can’t defend, up against a really good team, you’ll lose goals and they'll create chances off of it.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Celtic sub James Forrest gets his head down and powers forward to hammer in a rising, angled shot that Sven Ulreich pushes away as he guards his near post.

Sandy Cochrane: Sorry to say it but this is embarrassing. Roberts is useless. Brown no better. ONLY boomerang balls being bashed out of the box.

Leigh Brown: Best chance they have of not losing is a floodlight failure.

ScMid: Saving themselves for the big one this weekend against Hibs.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

A flurry of substitutions, with James Forrest replacing Patrick Roberts and the hosts throwing on James Rodriguez and Rafinha in place of Kingsley Coman and Joshua Kimmich.

Celtic making chances

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

They’re making a couple of chances since the fresh legs have come on. You’ve got to give them real credit for that. Rogic has made a difference.

CLOSE!

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Arjen Robben surges into the danger area from the right and Craig Gordon is brave, blocking at the Bayern winger's feet to concede a corner. From the resulting delivery, Mat Hummels goes close to another headed goal, arriving at the back-post but knocking the ball just wide.

GREAT SAVE!

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

A big opening for Scott Sinclair to get one back but he can only smash a shot straight at Sven Ulreich, who did well to close the angle from close range. The keeper then dives to push away a stinging follow-up from Tom Rogic.

GREAT SAVE!

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Arjen Robben has a lot of time to pick his spot as Celtic are opened up by a smart Arturo Vidal pass. The crowd expect the Dutchman to curl one into the far corner but he doesn't execute with his usual ruthlessness and Craig Gordon gets a hand to it.

'Celtic not used to this'

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

They’re not used to having to run around and staying together as a defensive unit. Normally they’re on the ball and this is really, really hard. I’m looking at Ntcham, I’m looking at Brown, they’re really on their knees. They can’t get into good positions defensively and it allows Bayern Munich just to cut them up.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Now Kieran Tierney has a go with a powerful, swerving shot from 25 yards. The keeper gets fingertips to it and the ball crashes against the post.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

A nice touch and pass from Tom Rogic finds Kieran Tierney in space down the left and it needs a stretching interception to prevent Moussa Dembele connecting with the left-back's low cross in front of goal.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Thiago has strolled through this game in central midfield and now he's replaced by the human dynamo that is Arturo Vidal. He's not one for taking it easy, even at 3-0 up and cruising.

PSG make it three

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Paris St-Germain are matching Bayern all the way as Neymar notches their third against Anderlecht.

Double change for Celtic

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Maybe that firestorm predicted by Mr Keys is coming... Moussa Dembele and Tom Rogic are on in place of Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong.

Archie McLean: As a St Johnstone fan I’m behind our European representatives. Great achievement getting to the group stages and competing against Europe’s elite.

John Bradshaw: A little perspective Bhoys & Ghirls. Bayern are 5 time defending German champs - by a collective 79 points!

Peter Keys: That's it lads,lure them into a false sense of security with a 3-0 lead, then throw on Rogic & Dembele for a 4 goal firestorm

DISALLOWED GOAL

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Robert Lewandowski must wait if he wants a goal this evening. He nudges in a cross from David Alaba from close range but was half a metre offside.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Almost another goal from a corner. Arjen Robben finds room inside the box and his glancing effort needs to be hacked off the goal-line by Cristian Gamboa.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Arjen Robben works a neat one-two with Thiago before skidding the ball across the six-yard box. Craig Gordon does well to gather under pressure and, soon after, the busy Celtic keeper does well to beat away another dangerous delivery.

Celtic punished again

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

It all comes from the bad pass from Craig Gordon into Scott Brown initially and they give away the corner and they’ve been punished again.

Mick McCristall: Nothing funny about it, bad for Scottish football.

Andru Blakk: It's exactly what I expected. We've been poor on the ball but we're playing one of the best teams in Europe. I'm not overly disappointed with our performance so far but it still has the potential to turn really ugly very quickly too.

Daniel Hughes: To be honest realistically it was always going to be a long night for us against Bayern.

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Here comes Kingsley Coman again but this time Mikael Lustig thwarts the livewire winger with a perfectly timed tackle in the box.
