MARSEILLE, France — Bayern Munich had little trouble dispatching a feeble Marseille team 2-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday, with Mario Gomez and Arjen Robben scoring in each half.
Gomez put Bayern ahead with his 11th goal of the competition just before halftime, with Marseille goalkeeper Elinton Andrade to blame for letting the ball slip under his body, and Robben scored a clinical second in the 69th after a quick one-two with Thomas Mueller.
Out of form, hampered by injuries and suspensions, and jeered by it own fans, Marseille barely tested Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer at Stade Velodrome as it slipped to its eighth defeat in the last nine games.
