German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich thrashed QNB Stars League side Al Ahli 6-0 in a friendly match as part of their Qatar Winter Training camp at the Aspire Zone on Saturday.

The match is Bayern's first game in 2018 before their next friendly on Tuesday against a German third division side SG Sonnenhof Grossapach.

Sandro Wagner scored the opener in his first match of the second stint for the German champions with a fine header just before the first-half break. The striker is returning to the Allianz Arena from Hoffenheim, having left Bayern as a youngster 10 years ago.

Jupp Heynckes'men then rammed in five more goals after the interval with Corentin Tolisso, Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman, Niklas Dorsch and Niklas Sule all finding the net for a much-changed side.

Wagner had already come close with a header before finding the bottom-right corner with another in the 38th minute.
Tolisso was the only member of the starting XI to be retained for the second half and he doubled Bayern's lead eight minutes after the break.

That really opened the floodgates and Robben volleyed home for a superb third off a Coman corner before the latter made it 4-0 with a neat finish of his own.

Dorsch was the next to breach Al Ahli's defence with 17 minutes remaining and Sule rounded off the scoring to conclude an enjoyable workout for Bayern.
