MUNICH (AP) -- Franck Ribery scored twice as defending champion Bayern Munich routed Viktoria Plzen 5-0 to take a giant step toward the Champions League knockout stage on Wednesday.

Bayern utterly dominated the game, yet needed a penalty from Ribery to break the deadlock in the 22nd. Plzen defender Roman Hubnik conceded it for a foul on Arjen Robben.

David Alaba made it 2-0 in the 37th, and Ribery scored a memorable second by dinking the ball over the goalkeeper in the 61st.

Mario Goetze came on to set up Bastian Schweinsteiger for Bayern's fourth in the 68th, and the Bayern substitute completed the rout in injury time.

Bayern is comfortable in Group D with three wins from three.

Earlier, Manchester City won 2-1 at CSKA Moscow to consolidate second place.
