Four-time European champions Bayern Munich reached the group stage of the Champions League on Tuesday after completing a 3-0 aggregate win over Swiss outfit FC Zurich. Villarreal, Dinamo Zagreb and APOEL Nicosia also advanced.

AP - Bayern Munich advanced to the Champions League group stage on Tuesday, winning 1-0 at FC Zurich to complete a 3-0 aggregate victory in the playoff round.

Bayern, a four-time European champion, had a comfortable evening in Switzerland after Mario Gomez finished a simple breakaway move in the seventh minute.

In other playoffs, Giuseppe Rossi's two second-half goals helped lift Villarreal to a 4-1 aggregate win over Odense, and Dinamo Zagreb and APOEL also advanced to the group stage.

Five more playoffs are concluded Wednesday to complete the 32-team Champions League lineup.

UEFA conducts the draw in Monaco on Thursday.

Bayern has an extra incentive to succeed this season as its home stadium hosts the final next May.
