Galatasaray 1-3 Bayern Munich player ratings: Efficient Bayern Dispatch Galatasaray’s Brilliant Effort

Bayern Munich retained their 100% record in the Champions League group stages so far this season with a 3-1 victory over Galatasaray away from home. This was not a vintage performance from the German outfit, who had to rely more on clinical finishing to get them through. Galatasaray also were quite wasteful with many of the chances, and the team now has to settle for just four points from the first three games.
