Paris: Bayern Munich produced a stunning display to demolish Roma 7-1 on Tuesday (Oct 21) but they were not the biggest winners on the most prolific evening in Champions League history. A record 40 goals were scored in just eight group games. Pep Guardiola’s side underlined their status as one of the contenders to win the Champions League as they took apart a Roma outfit who had enjoyed a fine start to the campaign. An Arjen Robben brace, Mario Goetze, Robert Lewandowski and a Thomas Mueller penalty made it 5-0 at the break in the Group E game. Gervinho got one back for Roma before Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri added further goals.
