Bayern Thrashes Bremen 5-2

Bayern Munich twice came from behind to beat Werder Bremen in a seven-goal thriller at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern held a minute’s silence before kick-off in tribute to ex-Barcelona coach and coach Pep Guardiola’s assistant at the Nou Camp, Tito Vilanova, who died aged 45 on Friday.

The hosts, who sealed back-to-back Bundesliga titles in match, wore black armbands during the match.

A number of key players were missing from Bayern’s starting line up as their Spanish boss rested his key players with Tuesday’s crucial Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid in mind. Real visit Munich with a 1-0 lead from midweek’s first leg.

Right-back Theodore Selassie placed the visitors before Franck Ribery equalised for the German champions.
