Reigning champions Bayern Munich started successfully into the season after trouncing Eintracht Frankfurt 6-1 in the curtain raiser of the 60th Bundesliga season on Friday.
The German record champions caught a perfect start on the road as Joshua Kimmich’s free kick stunned the “Eagles” with just five minutes gone.
Bayern increased the pressure and made it 2-0 six minutes later when Benjamin Pavard drilled the ball past Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp following a rebound.
The hosts almost halved the deficit after a run of play, but Tuta’s header rattled the woodwork moments later.
Bayern squandered a golden chance as Thomas Muller missed the open goal following Serge Gnabry’s square pass in the 23rd minute.
“I think we played an outstanding first half. With five goals behind we took the feet off the gas. Eleven goals in two games speak for themselves,” said Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann. – Xinhua
