Bayern Munich defeated AC Milan 3-0 in the Audi Cup at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, thus sending the Italians to the third-place play-off against Tottenham Hotspur who were beaten by Real Madrid in the friendly tournament's other match.
Juan Bernat opened the scoring thanks to an unfortunate Cristian Zapata deflection before Mario Gotze and Robert Lewnadowski added two more goals in the second half to hand Milan their third pre-season defeat in an experimental match for coach Sinisa Mihajlovic who almost replaced the entire starting line-up late on.

Diego Lopez – 5.5 – Impractical
The Spaniard had a nightmare in the Milan goal and was lucky to have only conceded thee goals overall.
Mattia De Sciglio – 6 – Helpless
The Italian was the victim of many of the tricks played by Costa and had a nightmare first-half overall. However, he was relatively quiet in the second half.
Cristian Zapata – 6.5 – Unlucky
The Colombian had an unfortunate touch on Bernat’s shot to direct it towards goal, but otherwise he played a good game, clearing a few crosses from the German wings.
Rodrigo Ely – 6 – Useful
Despite not making any crucial stops in the Milan defence, he helped clear away a few crosses here and there which could have lead to dangerous opportunities for Bayern.
Luca Antonelli – 5.5 – Not needed
The Italian defender didn’t stop any certain goals from the Bayern attack and failed to help out when his own team went on the attack.
Giacomo Bonaventura – 6 – Silent
Much like some of his teammates, the Italian was rarely seen making any key contribution to the team’s performance.
Nigel De Jong – 7 – Rock
The Dutch international was a solid barrier in midfield and made tackle after tackle to stop Bayern scoring more goals throughout the game.
Andrea Bertolacci – 6 – Disappointing
The new Milan signing didn’t make the impact he would have wanted and was also rarely seen on the ball providing key contributions.
Keisuke Honda – 6.5 – Versatile
The Japanese man often went back to help out in defence and give them an extra man. Without his sacrifice Bayern could have scored more.
Carlos Bacca – 5.5 – Discouraging
Another new singing who failed to make a big impact, Bacca didn’t live up to his high expectations during the game and only threatened the Bayern goal once with a shot that went wide.
Luiz Adriano – 5 – Failure
Arguably due to the lack of through balls provided to him by his teammates, the other new Milan signing with high expectations attached didn’t make any impact at all and had no close shots on goal.
Alex – 6 – Substandard
The Brazilian defender was the cause of Bayern’s third goal after giving the ball away. Had a disappointing game overall.
