The Bavarians were absolutely ruthless as they put a dozen past their 5th-tier opponents.

Julian Nagelsmann had “a lot of fun” from Bayern Munich’s 12-0 demolition of Bremer SV on Wednesday.

Initially scheduled to be played on August 6, the DFB-Pokal 1st-round clash at Weserstadion had to be postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Bremer squad.

The match was, by and large, a mismatch as Bayern managed to record their biggest victory in all competitions in 24 years.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was the star of the show in the absence of star striker Robert Lewandowski as he contributed four goals and three assists.

“There were a lot of nice combinations and good things,” Nagelsmann said during his post-match press conference, per Goal.

“It was a nice evening. It was a lot of fun that we won the game clearly.

“There were a lot of positive things in it, even if it still takes a little time to perfect things.

“They did well in the first six minutes and were brave. We didn’t talk about a result, it was about a certain seriousness. At half-time, we said that we wanted to use the game for counter-pressing. We did a great job of that in the second half. We also have to credit the team for that.”
