Bayern Munich Vs. Napoli, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Toni Kroos Gives Bayern Early Lead

Apparently there was a stabbing incident in Napoli last night. No, the victim wasn't Franck Ribery. He's always looked like that. Oh, and now they're losing to the indomitable Bayern Munich death machine, within something like two minutes of kickoff. Bayern found it simplicity in itself to penetrate the pathetic home defence and Toni Kroos was on hand to slot a square pass past a helpless Morgan de Sanctis, whose reaction can probably be described as 'displeased'.

So that's just the start that the visitors will have wanted, and with them not conceding a goal in two months, Napoli have it all to do to even earn at point at the Stadio San Paolo. Maybe Napoli should think twice about playing a three-man back line against a lone striker next time. Anyway, the hosts are still doing that attacking thing and Holger Badstuber has earned himself a yellow card for taking down Ezequiel Lavezzi in full sprint. Yellow cards don't help much against goals, though. It's 1-0 here.
