New signing Xherdan Shaqiri scored his first goal since arriving from FC Basel with youngsters Oliver Markoutz, Kevin Friesenbacher and Benno Schmitz also netting in front of 3,000 fans in the Munich suburb.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes will take a larger squad with him to Italy with the likes of Arjen Robben, Anatoli Tymoschuk and Mario Mandzukic arriving after their post-Euro 2012 breaks, but Franck Ribery will not be participating.

The France international will follow an individual training plan in Munich from Wednesday while the eight members of the Germany squad for Euro 2012 are not due to start pre-season training until the end of the week.

Elsewhere, there were wins for Schalke against fourth-division side SG Sonnenhof-Grossasbach, Hoffenheim beat fifth-division side FC Astoria Walldorf, Wolfsburg edged past ETSV Weiche and Eintracht Frankfurt downed FSV Hollenbach.

Hannover suffered a setback in their preparations as they were defeated 2-0 by third-division side Preussen Munster.
