The other game in their area on Wednesday ended in a thrilling 3-3 tie between Barcelona and Inter Milan, securing their place in the last 16.
After being defeated 5-0 by Bayern a week prior, Plzen were down 2-0 after just 10 minutes in the Czech Republic.
To get past the Plzen defense, Sadio Mane and Goretzka engaged in a give-and-go, after which Mane had no trouble shooting past Jindrich Stanek, the goalie for Plzen.
Julian Nagelsmann made six changes from the first meeting, starting with Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Mueller, who had missed the home game because of COVID-19 infections.
Bayern’s second goal came on 14 minutes with an easy tap-in after Kingsley Coman sprinted down the left flank and found him facing a wide open goal.
Goretzka scored the third into the bottom corner after Mueller’s low cross picked him out by the penalty spot on 25 minutes.
Ten minutes later, Goretzka chipped the ball over Stanek after a perfect through pass from Leroy Sane, turning the first half into a nightmare for the Czech underdogs.
