Champion Bayern Munich has started the new season of the Bundesliga like a steamroller. Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt was completely humiliated in the first half. At halftime, the forfeit score was already on the scoreboard.
A good start is half the battle. Is an excellent start then also half champion?
Starting against the German record champion is never easy, but if you are already 0-2 after 10 minutes, it becomes very difficult. Especially when Bayern Munich is unleashed and the top players have their day.
Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt saw stars against the German Rekordmeister. One of those stars was Sadio Mane. The top signing immediately scored in his debut match.
The Senegalese scored the 0-3 against the nets before half an hour, Joshua Kimmich had already scored from a free kick and Benjamin Pavard also pinned the ball against the nets with a long shot into the left corner..
Julian Nagelsmann had thoroughly lubricated the German machine in the mid-season. Jamal Musiala quickly made it 0-4 and Serge Gnabry took care of the forfeit score before the break.
Kolo Muani’s 1-5 was only good for the statistics. Jamal Musiala put the dots on the i in the end with his 2nd goal of the evening.
A beating for Europa League winner Eintracht Frankfurt. A mental blow to Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and the other top German clubs who thought it was possible to finally knock a Lewandowski-less Bayern off the throne.
