MUNICH (AP) Jerome Boateng struck in the final minute to give Bayern Munich a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the sides' opening Champions League Group E game on Wednesday.

Boateng scored with a wonderful half-volley that took a slight deflection from Robert Lewandowski before flying inside the far post after Arjen Robben's corner.

It was looking like Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart's inspired performance would be enough to salvage a draw for the visitors, who went closest through David Silva's flying header in the 63rd minute.
