1-6: Bayern post Lewandowski starts thrashing Eintracht, rival of Real Madrid

Bayern began the post-Lewandowski era in the Bundesliga by endorsing Eintracht 1-6 on Friday of Frankfurt, champion of the Europa League and that on August 10 will face Real Madrid in the European Super Cup. In the match that opened the 2022-23 German championship, the Munich team was a steamroller in the first half, which ended 0-5. For his part, Sadio Mané, until this summer one of Liverpool’s emblems, made his debut in the Bundesliga scoring Bayern’s third goal and making good combinations with his new teammates.

The first part was a nightmare for Eintracht Frankfurt, who had many problems in defense and paid dearly for them. Bayern, champion of Germany in the last ten editions of the tournament, took the lead already in the 5th minute, when Joshua Kimmich scored a free kick. And in the 11th minute, the second goal for the Bavarians took place, the work of Benjamin Pavard, after a play by Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala.

At the stroke of half an hour, at 29′, It was Mané’s turn to score his first goal in the Bundesliga, headed, assisted by Serge Gnabry. Both, Mané and Gnabry, acted at the point of attack, but it was clear that, without Lewandowski, the bet of Julian Nagelsmann, coach of Bayern, is that their attacking players change position.

The fourth was from Musiala, assisted by Thomas Müller in the 35th minute. And Müller himself also sent the ball that allowed Gnabry to make it 0-5 in the 43rd minute. A whole message from the eternal German champion to his rivals in the opening of the 2022-23 Bundesliga. The runner-up, Borussia Dortmund, faces third-placed Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Leipzig visits Stuttgart on Sunday.

Eintracht Frankfurt improved in the second half and, after Kristijan Jakic had a goal disallowed for offside, it was Kolo Muani, following an error by Manuel Neuer, who closed the gap in the 64th minute against a Bayern that had taken their foot off the accelerator. But Musiala, after a pass from Leroy Sané, completed his brace in the 83rd minute. In the second half, Ryan Gravenberch, Mathys Tel, Matthijs de Ligt and Noussair Mazraoui made their debut with Bayern in the Bundesliga.
