Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are back on German soil following their clash in the Champions League final. It was a disappointing night for Dortmund, but Bayern took another step towards an unprecedented treble.
Both goals hailed from a familiar source as Bayern sealed three points at home against rank outsiders AEK Athens. The victory never looked in real doubt, but the performance left much to be desired.
A sputtering Bayern Munich go into their fourth Champions League group-stage match hoping to send a message to Borussia Dortmund. Hoffenheim, meanwhile, need a win to maintain any realistic chance of progressing.
Diego Simeone's side put on a trademark display to avenge their 4-0 defeat of two weeks ago, as disciplined in defense as they were incisive on the attack. Both goals had more than a shade of BVB at their best.
Dortmund have their sights set on preserving their perfect Champions League record when they take on Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, Schalke look to take another step towards the last 16 when they host Galatasaray.
