Debuts for trio
No fewer than three players made debuts for FC Bayern in the 3-0 victory over FC Schalke. Lucas Hernández made his starting debut in a competitive match and his first Bundesliga encounter. Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Perišić made their debuts in Bayern colours when they came on in the second half. The match also marked Coutinho's Bundesliga debut. "It was good to have all the new signings here," said coach Niko Kovač after the match, speaking of a "good display" by the trio. Only Michaël Cuisance did not play on Saturday.
