Barcelona powered by a Lewandowski hattrick, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur also bagged victories in the opening gameweek.

Leroy Sane scored one goal and forced an own goal by Inter Milan as Bayern Munich beat the Italian side 2-0 away in their Champions League Group C opener on Wednesday.

Germany international Sane superbly controlled a pinpoint Joshua Kimmich cross before rounding Inter keeper Andre Onana, who was making his debut for the club, to give Bayern the lead in the 25th minute.

Sane also deserves a lot of credit for their second goal after dismantling the Inter defence with a lightning-quick double one-two with Kingsley Coman in the 66th before his shot was turned into the net by Inter captain Danilo D’Ambrosio.

Bayern, who bounced back following two consecutive draws in the Bundesliga, host Barcelona next week, while Inter, who have now lost their last two matches following their derby loss to AC Milan on Saturday, take on Viktoria Plzen in the other group match
