Bayern Munich had no time to waste. To start this new Bundesliga season, the 10-time reigning champions crushed Eintracht Frankfurt (1-6). In the 45th minute, Julian Nagelsmann’s players had already made the difference. And not just a little. Five goals signed Joshua Kimmich (0-1, 5th), Benjamin Pavard (0-2, 10th), Sadio Mané (0-3, 29th), Jamal Musiala (0-4, 35th) and Serge Gnabry (0-5, 5th). 43rd). All that needed to be done was to finish the job quietly as Frankfurt prepare in the worst possible way for the European Super Cup against Real Madrid next Wednesday in Helsinki.
Because, yes, Eintracht Frankfurt is none other than the winner of the last Europa League. But while everything was successful for them on the European stage, the end of last season had turned into a nightmare. And Oliver Glasner’s men have just gone a ninth game without a win in the Bundesliga. It must be said that this one started very badly. From the fifth minute, Joshua Kimmich scored the first goal with a long free kick in the fog generated by the smoke of the Eintracht fans (0-1, 5th).
He’s ready: that’s how it is in Bayern’s squad for Frankfurt
Yesterday AT 1:20 PM
Unleashed, the Bavarians never let their afternoon rivals breathe, scoring four more goals with Benjamin Pavard’s powerful strike from a corner (0-2, 10th), Sadio Mané’s header (0 – 3, 29th), a flat foot. from close range by Jamal Musiala (0-4, 35th) and a shot from Serge Gnabry badly denied by a disappointed Kevin Trapp (0-5, 43rd). In the middle of this festival, Thomas Muller found the post (23rd) and Jamal Musiala the crossbar (28th).

Frankfurt overwhelmed from the start, Kolo Muani inspired
Everything was going too fast for Frankfurt, who only had two chances to eat before the break. Tuta saw his header hit the post after a Kostic corner (12′) and Jesper Lindstrom crossed too far from the right when he was left alone in front of Manuel Neuer (27′). So Glasner made three changes at halftime, including Randal Kolo Muani. Very active on the attack front, the ex-Nantes player has shown his burst of speed to make Munich’s defense difficult.
It was also on a deep ball that was destined for him and that Lucas Hernández delivered to Manuel Neuer that the German goalkeeper missed. Bad control, bad handling of the ball and the Frenchman was able to recover the ball and follow quickly with his flat right foot to score in the empty net (1-5, 64th). A few minutes earlier, Kristijan Jakic had already thought he had scored, but his goal had been disallowed for an offside position (56th).
Led by a scintillating Sadio Mané and all the dangerous actions, Bayern took control of the game and Jamal Musiala scored his second personal goal in the dying minutes of the game, from the left, after resisting several defenders (1- 6, 83). Note that former Rennais Mathys Tel came on during the second period. Robert Lewandowski can sleep on his own two ears, Bayern Munich is doing wonderfully and is more than ever a candidate for his own succession.
