The 25-year-old defender was handed the captain's armband and completed 58 minutes of a decidedly one-sided encounter at the heart of a in his first appearance following cruciate ligament surgery.
Robert Lewandowski, Franck Ribery and Claudio Pizarro missed out, but there were debuts for summer signings Juan Bernat and Sebastian Rode alongside the more familiar faces of Tom Starke, Rafinha, David Alaba and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
18-year-old Lucas Scholl, son of legendary Bayern midfielder Mehmet, also completed the full 90 minutes, with the game itself wrapped up in the first half thanks to an Alaba brace and a well-taken effort from Under-19s midfielder Daniel Hägler.
