11:17 am on 21 August 2012

Bayern Munich managed to avoid joining a number of Bundesliga clubs to go out in the first round of the German Cup after recording a comfortable 4-0 win at Jahn Regensburg.

Bundesliga 2 side Regensburg managed to keep their guests at bay until the 32nd minute when Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring.

Xherdan Shaqiri doubled the lead with a free-kick just past the hour mark.

Mandzukic got a second with a neatly taken angled shot after rounding the keeper and Claudio Pizarro completed the scoring two minutes from time.
