Holders Bayern make winning start in German Cup.

BERLIN, Shawwal 21, 1435, Aug 17, 2014, SPA -- Injury-hit Bayern Munich crushed third-tier Preussen Muenster 4-1 away on Sunday to bounce back from their midweek Super Cup defeat and launch a successful defence of their German Cup title, Reuters reported.

Despite missing half a dozen key players through injury, including Franck Ribery and Bastian Schweinsteiger, Bayern were eager to make amends for Wednesday's 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

First half goals from Mario Goetze and Thomas Mueller -- his 100th for Bayern -- put them in the driving seat before David Alaba's thundering drive from 18 metres gave them a three-goal cushion early in the second half.
