90+3' That's all from here; I hope you enjoyed tonight's coverage. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for full coverage of the rest of the Champions League first matchday fixtures.
90+3' FULL TIME! Tosic takes CSKA's best shot of the match, a long drive that Neuer dives to parry. But seconds later, the final whistle is blown and Bayern celebrate their second consecutive clean sheet and a resounding win! It's a result of which Pep Guardiola can surely be proud. CSKA will be disappointed to have trailed for 86 minutes and to never have realistically had a chance to come back into contention for a point.
90+1' Three minutes will be added now, although the game has more or less reached a standstill.
89' Ribery dances around the left side of the penalty area before laying the ball off to Schweinsteiger, who takes a powerful shot from distance but is denied by a good save. Bayern are quick to the rebound, but play is called back for offside.
87' SHAQIRI! Oh, what a chance! Great run from the Switzerland international, who slides to meet Müller's cross. The ball is redirected just wide of the far post!
86' Pizarro scores! Oh, but he's offside. Müller receives the ball at the edge of the box and is felled, but the ball runs ahead to the substitute striker. Pizarro does well to round Akinfeev and slot home, but the linesman's flag is raised and the goal is disallowed.
80' Robben receives an ovation from the home fans as he is replaced by Xherdan Shaqiri.
79' Good defending from Bayern as Honda looks like finding space to shoot, but is stopped in his tracks.
77' And now Georgi Milanov replaces Zuber.
75' Claudio Pizarro becomes the next substitute, replacing the goal-scorer Mandzukic.
74' Konstantin Bazelyuk now joins the action, replacing Musa.
71' Schweinsteiger makes his return now, replacing Kroos as Bayern adopt a double pivot in midfield with the vice captain and Lahm.
68' GOAL! Robben scores to put Bayern 3-0 ahead! Alaba plays a perfectly-timed ball over the top that beats the offside trap. Robben has all the time he needs to take it off his chest and volley into the net. This one seems done and dusted!
65' CSKA again enjoying more of the ball, but seem a bit confused as to how to break down the Bayern defense. The hosts seem comfortably absorbing the rather limited pressure; their playing style in some ways now resembles that from last season.
62' Ooh, close call from Mandzukic, who slides to connect with Dante's long pass forward. The shot is very weak, though, and Akinfeev claims on a bounce.
59' CSKA are playing themselves back into the game now. They've been more aggressive and more successful in the attacking area, although seriously missing something in the finish. Their latest attempt was from Cauna at the edge of the box, but the midfielder's effort went wide.
57' Robben has a go from distance, but it doesn't trouble Akinfeev.
53' - Ooh, there's a chance for Musa! Great work from the CSKA forward as he frees himself from Boateng. Rafinha is quick to aid his teammate and wins the ball before being awarded a free kick.
50' On the topic of the crowd's dismay, the fans are up in arms as CSKA play on following an injury to Mandzukic. The Bayern man is on his feet a few moments later, though, and appears to be fine.
49' ROBBEN! Oh, great effort by the Dutchman, who strikes a hard volley from close range. Akinfeev is in position to make a reflex save, though, much to the crowd's dismay.
46' AND THE SECOND HALF BEGINS! CSKA make one substitution at the break: Zoran Tosic replaces Vitinho. Bayern line up the same for the second half as they began the game.
HALF-TIME! Well, the hosts are half-way to their first three points of the 2013-14 Champions League group stage - and deservedly so. Alaba's free kick was a stroke of genius and came as a bit of a surprise, but the hosts missed several chances before Mandzukic made it 2-0. Pep Guardiola surely must be pleased with his team's performance. But can CSKA make a game of it in the second half? Come back in 15 minutes for more live updates...
43' If the result holds until halftime, it's going to leave CSKA with a mountain to climb after the break. With all things considered, the two-goal lead is well-deserved by Bayern, who have played confidently from the opening kickoff.
41' MANDZUKIC SCORES! 2-0 TO THE HOSTS! He's threatened several times and finally the imposing striker finds the net, nodding in a fine cross from Robben.
37' MANDZUKIC! HOW DID HE MISS? Incredible stuff - Ribery nods a cross towards the striker, whose diving header strikes the inside of the right post. Akinfeev was helpless initially, but grabs the ball on the goal line!
