Bayern Munich 3-0 Anderlecht

Bayern Munich beat 10-man Anderlecht in their Champions League opener, although the German champions were unconvincing.

Anderlecht had Sven Kums sent off after 11 minutes for fouling Robert Lewandowski to concede a penalty, which the Pole scored - his seventh goal in six games this season.

Joshua Kimmich then crossed for Thiago to score their second.

And Jerome Boateng - in his first game of the season after a thigh injury - set up Kimmich's 90th-minute goal.

Paris St-Germain thrashed Celtic 5-0 in Group B's other game.
