Bayern Munich delivered a message to the rest of the Bundesliga that the treble winners are in superb form, coach Hansi Flick said on Friday following an 8-0 demolition of Schalke 04 in their season opener. Bayern started their league campaign with a bang as they scored three times by the 31st minute to kill off the game with their stunning pace and deadly finishing. Serge Gnabry scored a hat-trick while new-signing Leroy Sane was also on the scoresheet for the reigning European champions.
The Bavarians, who won the domestic league and Cup double before adding the Champions League title in August, are the overwhelming favourites to win a ninth consecutive league crown. Unbeaten in 2020, Bayern coach Hansi Flick said he expected his team to continue that run against Schalke, with fans again banned from the Allianz Arena due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most stadiums will have a small number of fans allowed but the city of Munich decided to avoid any large crowds as coronavirus infections across Germany are on the rise again.
The deal will allow 24-year-old Robin Koch to remain at Elland Road club until the summer of 2024.

Last year, Koch was also handed his senior debut for Germany in October during a clash against Argentina.
