Mane scores on debut as Bayern puts 6 past Eintracht Frankfurt

Sadio Mane scored on his Bundesliga debut as champions Bayern Munich opened the new season with a thumping 6-1 win away to Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Senegal forward, 30, headed home from a Serge Gnabry cross to make it 3-0 as Bayern went 5-0 up by half-time.

Randal Kolo Muani pulled one back before Jamal Musiala completed the scoring with his second goal late on.

Joshua Kimmich’s free-kick opened the scoring while Benjamin Pavard and Gnabry were also on target.

Mane joined Bayern in a £35m move from Liverpool in June and also scored in last week’s German Super Cup win over RB Leipzig.

Frankfurt won last season’s Europa League and face Champions League winners Real Madrid for the Uefa Super Cup next Wednesday.

At one point it appeared Bayern were on track to eclipse its own record for the best performance in an opening round clash, set in 2020 when they trounced Schalke 8-0 in a season where the Royal Blues were ultimately relegated.
