    Mueller's penalty enough for Bayern Munich to beat Lille

    Thomas Mueller scored a first-half penalty as last season\'s runner-up Bayern Munich beat Lille 1-0.

    Lille: Thomas Mueller scored a first-half penalty as last season's runner-up Bayern Munich hit back from a shock loss in its preceding Champions League match to win 1-0 at Lille on Tuesday.

    Bayern has been in unstoppable form in the Bundesliga, notching eight straight wins, but a surprise 3-1 loss to BATE Borisov three weeks ago had put it under pressure.

    Just as Lille was settling, Lucas Digne gave away a penalty for a foul on Philipp Lahm, although the decision appeared harsh. Mueller sent goalkeeper Mickael Landreau the wrong way from the spot for his third goal in two games and eighth of the season.

    Bayern has six points in Group F, while Lille has lost all three matches and is nearing another early exit — just like last season.
