Five goals at the break – FC Bayern rolls over foggy Frankfurters

At the start of the new Bundesliga season, FC Bayern was heading for a resounding victory. The Munich team were already leading 5-0 at Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt at half-time. This is the highest half-time lead that has ever existed in an opening game in Germany's top division.

The hosts were extremely naïve for long stretches of the first half and repeatedly gave Bayern large spaces for their attacks. Joshua Kimmich made it 1-0 in the fifth minute with a direct free kick. Eintracht goalkeeper Kevin Trapp should have expected a cross. In addition, visibility was poor, his penalty area was clouded by pyro smoke from his own fans.

Just six minutes later, Benjamin Pavard scored from a corner to make Bayern 2-0. Frankfurt also had two good chances as a result, but only Bayern scored. Sadio Mané (29th), Jamal Musiala (35th) and Serge Gnabry (43rd) ensured the highest break deficit of the defensively completely indisposed Eintracht since 1964.

There could have been even more goals conceded. Thomas Müller (23rd), Musiala (27th) and Mané each hit the crossbar or the post. All statistical data also spoke for the Munich team at the break. Bayern ran 2.3 kilometers more than Frankfurt, the goal shot ratio was 17:4, and the guests won 55 percent of the duels.

More to come.
