Zagreb - Robert Lewandowski scored twice for already-through Bayern Munich to complete its Champions League group campaign with a 2-0 win at Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.

Half-time substitute Thomas Muller set up Lewandowski's opener in the 61st minute, three minutes before Sebastian Rode played the Poland striker through for his second goal — his seventh in six games.

Muller struck the post with a penalty in the 87th.

Already assured of first place in Group F, Bayern was joined in the last 16 by Arsenal, which won 3-0 at Olympiakos to deprive the Greek champion of second place thanks to Olivier Giroud's hat trick.

Bayern rested many players and gave Franck Ribery his first start in nine months, while American Julian Green started in his second competitive appearance for the side.
