Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has hailed his side's Champions League campaign so far, after last night's 5-0 thrashing of Viktoria Plzen at the Allianz Arena.

The win maintained Bayern's 100% record and a place at the top of Group D after three games, three points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.

"We've played with plenty of motivation and now we have nine points on the board after three games in the competition. Our opponents weren't on the same level as us but it's not easy to win 5-0 in the Champions League, so we did well," Kroos told the UEFA's official website.

"The Champions League is always good fun, even when you don't win by such a big margin. We were far superior tonight and to be honest we should have been further ahead by half-time, but we can be satisfied."

The 23-year-old midfielder played for the full 90 minutes as goals from Frank Ribery (25,pen and 61), David Alaba (37), Bastian Schweinsteiger (64) and Mario Gotze (90) sealed a comfortable victory for the European champions who are well on course to try and retain their trophy.

Kroos heaped praise on Gotze following another impressive substitute appearance and is confident the former Borussia Dortmund star will become a key player at Bayern.

"Mario Gotze is improving with every game. It's important that he stays fit and keeps playing," Kroos added.

"If he can do that then I'm sure we're going to enjoy plenty of good times to come with him."

Gotze has made seven appearances for Bayern so far, with that goal last night being the first for his new club.
