Created on Jul. 12, 2013 11:40 AM EST

Bayern Munich continued their preparations for the new season with a 3-0 win over Brescia at the Stadion von Arco on Tuesday.

The Bundesliga champions named a strong side that included Franck Ribery, Mario Mandzukic and Thomas Mueller, with the German getting the scoring under way against their Serie B opponents.

It was Mandzukic who had the biggest part to play, though, seizing on a poor clearance from Brescia goalkeeper Alessio Cragno to play in Mueller, who easily tapped home after 23 minutes. 

Bayern doubled their advantage nine minutes later, with Ribery the architect, getting to the byline and squaring for Mueller, who in turn set up Toni Kroos to add the finishing touch. 

That is how it remained until then the 90th minute when Jan Kirchhoff, a recent signing from Mainz, put the game beyond any doubt.

The 22-year-old headed home after a penalty area mix-up to give new boss Pep Guardiola his fourth win from four friendlies.
