Three goals, three points: FC Bayern got their 2017/18 Champions League campaign off to a successful start. Tuesday's 3-0 victory over RSC Anderlecht yielded lots of interesting stats. fcbayern.com has collected the most interesting numbers:

ONE- Nine days after his 22nd birthday Niklas Süle has another reason to celebrate: he made his Champions League debut against Anderlecht on Tuesday evening. He almost marked the occasion with his maiden CL goal, but it was ruled out by the referee.

TEN--Thomas Müller has now worn FC Bayern colours in ten consecutive Champions League campaigns. Only Mehmet Scholl and Oliver Kahn have achieved this before.

12-- FC Bayern have scored 12 of their last 14 CL goals in the second half.

16-- Robert Lewandowski has scored all of FC Bayern's last 16 penalties.

100- Manuel Neuer reached a milestone, making this 100th European appearance on Tuesday.

115-- Jerome Boateng made his comeback against Anderlecht after 115 days on the sidelines. He set up Joshua Kimmich's late goal after being subbed on. Boateng had sustained a thigh injury against Freiburg on 20 May.

540- Joshua Kimmich is the only FCB player who has not missed a single competitive minute so far this term. He played the full 90 minutes in the sixth match this season.
