The header was an assist from Douglas Costa. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting put a nail in the coffin for Lokomotiv Moscow as he scored at the 80-minute mark of the match.
Lokomotiv showed signs of life after nearly scoring through Maciej Rybus’s attack. However, Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer deflected the shot. So now, Bayern sits atop Group A and looks to defend their crown in the upcoming knockout stages.
