FC Bayern sealed the group win, turning in an impressive display against Red Star Belgrade, but the German record champions refused to descend into euphoria. "We have a few tasks ahead of us until the winter break," stressed captain Manuel Neuer. The team took to an adjacent pitch at Stadium Rajko Mitić shortly after the final whistle.
The starters regenerated, turning in a few gentle laps to the spectacular backdrop of the Belgrade night sky. Those players who did not feature in the match or only played for a short time turned in sprints to keep up the workload. Bayern have ambitious goals, after all: "We're on a run, we want to extend it in the next few matches and ideally win everything," said Neuer in keeping with the motto of his predecessor Oliver Kahn: "Weiter! Immer weiter!"– Keep going.
Robert Lewandowski is not to be stopped. The top striker set a new record in Belgrade.👇
