Mane scores as Bayern Munich beat RB Leipzig in German Super Cup1 min read
Sadio Mane was on the score sheet on his competitive debut for new-look Bayern Munich as they overcame RB Leipzig 5-3 to lift the German Super Cup.
The season curtain-raiser between last term’s Bundesliga champions Bayern and the German Cup winners was held in Leipzig.
Germany teenager Jamal Musiala rifled Bayern ahead on Saturday after Leipzig had failed to clear a corner on 14 minutes.
Ex-Liverpool forward Mane then tapped in on the half hour from Serge Gnabry’s pass as the Bavarians quickly got used to life without new Barcelona signing Robert Lewandowski.
Benjamin Pavard made it three before the interval.
The hosts did little to threaten the visitors until Marcel Halstenberg’s second-half header.
Gnabry and Christopher Nkunku then traded goals before Dani Olmo’s late strike for Leipzig made things interesting, only for Leroy Sane to score at the death.
