Champion Bayern Munich got off to a blistering start in the Bundesliga season opener, firing five goals past woeful Eintracht Frankfurt in the first half to take a commanding 6-1 victory.

The Bavarians put down a marker at the start of the campaign to land an 11th consecutive league crown, outclassing the Europa League winner, which faces Real Madrid in the Super Cup next week.

New signing Sadio Mane was among five scorers in a scorching first half, with all Bayern's goals coming in just 38 minutes.

Joshua Kimmich's free-kick put Bayern ahead early, with Eintracht Frankfurt hitting the post quickly.

He then sent Mueller to set up Jamal Musiala for Bayern's fourth in the 35th with a simple tap-in and the Eintracht defense in tatters.

Thomas Mueller then had a great chance to make it 2-0, but he could only hit the post from close range. 

 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, which will play in the Champions League this season, was livelier after the break as Bayern eased off and it pounced on goalkeeper 

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. 

“The first half was outstanding I must say,” Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said. “I don’t think it will always be like that but after two matches we can be satisfied.”
