Football: Bayern outclasses Man City 3-1 in Champions League
MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Bayern Munich produced an ominously powerful display to outclass Manchester City 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday, earning the German champions a second straight convincing victory in the defence of its title.
Dominant in all departments, Bayern took a 1-0 halftime lead after City goalkeeper Joe Hart let Franck Ribery's shot slip through his grasp in the seventh minute, before Thomas Mueller and Arjen Robben piled on the misery with goals in a four-minute span just before the hour.
On a sobering night for City, substitute Alvaro Negredo grabbed a 79th-minute consolation before Bayern had defender Jerome Boateng sent off for a professional foul on Yaya Toure with four minutes left.
Still, the scoreline flattered the English side.
