Bayern ran away with the victory, winning 4-1 thanks to two goals from Lasse Gunther and strikes from Joshua Zirkzee and substitute Moritz Mosandl.

It wasn’t just Hibs casting their eye over young talent. Two European heavyweights joined Hibs in taking in this match.

Somewhat ironically, the referee for this match was Kevin Clancy, who is fresh off the back of his controversial Hibs v Celtic performance.

The ref had a poor game by all accounts, making a number of high profile mistakes as the game eventually finished 1-1.

There were decent Spurs youngsters on show for Hibs to look at. Perhaps one of the big names was Troy Parrott, who made his Tottenham debut in a Carabao Cup match against Colchester United recently.

It may only be October, but already it seems like Hibs have their minds on future targets.
