UEFA.com correspondent's opinion
Bayern''s title defense continued as last time and eliminated everything in their path. Hansi Flick's men overcame many hurdles on their way to winning Group A' in two matches without fully reaching the same relentless intensity witnessed last summer. The fearlessness of the Salzburg press, Lokomotiv's stubborn struggle or Diego Simeone's well-trained Atlético'no team has found the formula to stop the Bayern side.

what we learned
Bayern isn't perfect either, which hates being predictable after the extraordinary 2019 / 20' Since the season started, they have rarely looked defensive in full control. Even so, the brutal offensive forces did too much to top Atlético, Salzburg or Lokomotiv', despite significant injury concerns at one stage.
Douglas Costa and Leroy Sané give Bayern' extra quality on the wings, while Jamal Musiala is the next youngster looking to make his presence felt.
• Bayern set up a new UEFA Champions League record winning streak of 15 games, thus matching Atlético's 15 consecutive wins in a single European competition (in the Athlete's case, the UEFA Europa League). The Spaniards rejected Bayern's definitive record in Game 5 of #39.
• For the second season in a row, Bayern was the group stage top scorer this time with 18 goals. While Robert Lewandowski lagged behind in the personal group stage of the 2019/20 season 10/#39, Bayern''s goals were shared between 11 different players.
• Bayern are currently undefeated in 20 European games away from Munich (including the 2020 UEFA Super Cup and the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League finals played in Lisbon). Their last UEFA away loss was in Paris in September 2017'.
Who is authorized?
Former Germany assistant coach Flick was seconded last season and oversaw an extraordinary transformation that saw Bayern swept everything before them and rewritten their record books.
