Bayern Munich have maintained their unbeaten start to the new Bundesliga season, after beating Koln 4-nil at the Allianz Arena. 

The defending champions dominated the match from the onset, and Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring from close range just three minutes into the match.

The Bavarians doubled the lead in the 48th minute, as the Polish International scored his 9th goal in five matches, with a world-class header from a corner kick. 

Brazilian striker Philippe Coutinho scored his first goal for Bayern from the spot on the hour mark.

Finally, newly-joined midfielder, Ivan Perisic, made it 4-nil, after firing the ball into the bottom right corner with 17 minutes remaining.

With the victory, Bayern moved up to second in the table, two points behind table toppers RB Leipzig, who beat Werder Bremen 3-nil.
