Rampant Bayern trounce Frankfurt 6-1

Champions Bayern Munich put five goals past a woeful Eintracht Frankfurt in the first half on the way to an electric 6-1 victory in the Bundesliga season opener.

The Bavarians put down a marker at the start of the campaign as they look to land an 11th consecutive league crown.

They outclassed the Europa League winners, who face Real Madrid in the Super Cup next week, and new signing Sadio Mane was on target.

Mane, who also scored in last week’s German Super Cup win over RB Leipzig following his move from Liverpool, was among five different scorers in a scorching first half.

Joshua Kimmich’s audacious free kick that went in off the post opened their account in the fifth minute.

Benjamin Pavard drilled in their second six minutes later just before Eintracht hit the woodwork through Tuta.

But Mane headed home a Serge Gnabry cross in the 29th to make it 3-0 and then sent Thomas Mueller, who also hit the post, through to set up Jamal Musiala for their fourth with a simple tap-in.

Gnabry also got onto the scoresheet two minutes before the break, burying any thoughts that Bayern may struggle in attack after the departure of striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona.

Eintracht, who will play in the Champions League this season, were livelier after the break as Bayern eased off and they pounced on goalkeeper Manuel Neuer’s error to score through Randal Kolo Muani.

Musiala, however, wrapped up the scoring when he latched onto Leroy Sane’s assist to slot in his second goal of the evening seven minutes from time to complete the rout.
