FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Bayern Munich warmed up for its Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid with a 5-2 win over Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Bayern trailed twice but scored three goals in a seven-minute span in the second half to put the match away. Franck Ribery scored a goal and played a role in two others as his form finally improved ahead of Tuesday's match against Madrid, which holds a 1-0 lead from the home leg.

Bayern's players wore black armbands and a minute of silence was observed before kickoff in honor of former Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova, who died on Friday. Bayern also put a statement of condolences, in German and Catalan, on its website. Vilanova was the assistant of Pep Guardiola, who is now the Bayern coach.
