SHOWS: MUNICH, GERMANY (SEPTEMBER 12, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BAYERN MUNICH MANAGER CARLO ANCELOTTI, SAYING: "It was good, the game was under control, of course we could play with more intensity, with more pace, but we didn't need... the game at the beginning was to control possession, maybe we could have played with more intensity but in general I'm satisfied." STORY: Bayern Munich got off to a winning start in the Champions League for the 14th successive season on Tuesday (September 12) with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Group B opponents Anderlecht who played most of the game with 10 men at the Allianz Arena. Striker Robert Lewandowski received a pre-match slapdown from Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after criticising the club's transfer policy, but the Pole showed his value on the pitch by scoring his seventh goal in six games this season from the penalty spot after being hacked down by Sven Kums, who received a red card. The dismissal made a daunting task become even more difficult for the visitors who went further behind on 65 minutes when Thiago Alcantara side-footed a second from a cross by Joshua Kimmich. Niklas Suele had another effort disallowed for a foul before Kimmich rounded off the night by waltzing round the keeper to roll the ball into an empty net for Bayern's third.
