The hosts entered the match with optimism, although it was quickly crushed on them.

Frankfurt won the Europa League last season beating Rangers in the final and will face Real Madrid next Wednesday in the UEFA Super Cup.

There seemed to be a feel-good factor around the club, despite finishing 11th last season domestically.

Meanwhile, Bayern lost Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, ​​who scored 60 goals last season.

While very few expect new signing Mane, who has joined Liverpool, to reach such a tally, he managed to get off to an impressive start.

Before the game, Frankfurt president Peter Fischer joked about Bayern’s new arrival, saying in an interview with broadcasters RTL and n-tv: “Who the hell is Mane?”

Bayern started fast, leading 1-0 through Joshua Kimmich within five minutes.

Benjamin Pavard doubled the bet with only ten minutes on the clock.

Then, as the game neared the half hour mark, Mane struck.

Serge Gnabry played on the left wing with the former Liverpool man alongside him in the middle.

As he entered the penalty area, Gnabry deftly lifted the ball over the Frankfurt defender between them so Mane could head home.

At half-time, Bayern led 5-0 as Jamal Musiala and Gnabry added to their tally.

In the second half Randal Kolo Muani salvaged one for the hosts but Musiala scored again and the game ended 6-1.
