Regen - FC Bayern Munich made it two wins out of two under the guidance of Pep Guardiola as they swept TSV Regen aside 9-1 on Sunday.
The record German champions found themselves in the unfamiliar position of having to come from behind against the amateur club, but they soon got into their stride to prevail in front of 7,091 fans, with all of the gate receipts going to victims of the recent flooding in the region.
Guardiola picked a similar side to the one he had chosen for his side’s 15-1 victory over a Wildenau Weiden Fans' XI on Saturday, although German international goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was given a rest for the entire 90 minutes and Franck Ribery played the first rather than the second half.
The Frenchman failed to open his account for pre-season, but Thomas Müller was on target once again as Bayern recovered from the early shock to lead 4-1 at the interval, thanks to two more goals from the increasingly-prolific Patrick Weihrauch.
Rest, then Trentino
Guardiola shuffled his pack at half time and Julian Greene was the beneficiary, scoring a second-half hat-trick, while Toni Kroos celebrated his second appearance of pre-season after a long injury absence by putting the cherry on top of another comprehensive win for the treble winners with the ninth goal.
Bayern’s players will have a break on Monday before training in Munich on Tuesday and Wednesday. From Thursday, Guardiola and Co will step up their 2013/14 season preparations in a week-long training camp in Trentino, Italy.
