VfL Bochum 0-7 Bayern Munich: Sadio Mane scores twice for the visitors as Julian Nagelsmann’s side extend their unbeaten run with their biggest win of the season

  • Bayern Munich continued a blistering start to the new season with a 7-0 victory 
  • Julian Nagelsmann’s side scored seven goals during the win over VfL Bochum
  • Sadio Mane scored twice, while Matthijs de Ligt scored his first goal for the club
  • Bayern Munich remain top of the Bundesliga table following their latest victory 

Champions Bayern Munich demolished hosts VfL Bochum 7-0 on Sunday, with new signing Sadio Mane scoring twice to maintain their perfect start to the season.

The Bavarians, who are two points clear at the top with nine points from three league games, went on a first-half rampage, scoring four times in a 38-minute span to kill off the game.

They took a fourth-minute lead through Leroy Sane with their first attack of the game, and new signing Matthijs de Ligt got onto the scoresheet with his first ever effort on goal for Bayern, heading in a corner at the far post in the 25th.

Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann was beaming with his side’s outstanding away performance

Kingsley Coman’s shot from close range after Bochum failed to clear just past the half-hour mark made it 3-0 and all but put the game beyond doubt, before Mane completed the first-half frenzy with his second goal of the season – a low shot from a tight angle in the 42nd.

Bayern, who have now scored 15 goals in their three league games since the departure of top striker Robert Lewandowski for Barcelona, eased off the gas. But the Senegal international added another with a penalty on the hour.

Cristian Gamboa, under pressure from Sane, scored an own goal, piling further misery on the hosts who then saw substitute Serge Gnabry make it look so easy when he thundered in a low shot off the post to make it 7-0.

Title rivals Borussia Dortmund conceded three goals in the last few minutes against Werder Bremen on Saturday as they suffered a shock 3-2 loss that left them on six points.

Borussia Moenchengladbach are in second place on seven, along with Union Berlin and Mainz 05.

Mane has scored three goals in the Bundesliga so far this season since joining from Liverpool

Kingsley Coman pounced on a Riemann save in the 33rd minute to make it 3-0 before halftime after the keeper did well to deny Thomas Muller’s initial shot. 

Mane added another goal before half time as Bochum crumbled under unrelenting pressure. The former Liverpool star doubled his tally midway through the second half, staying calm to score from the spot after Coman was hacked down in the box.

Bochum defender Gamboa made matters even worse for his side by scoring an own goal by diverting a Joshua Kimmich pass into his net. Gnabry wrapped up victory for the visitors by making it 7-0 late in the match.
