Robert who? Bayern Munich kicked off its post Robert Lewandowski era with a convincing 5-3 win over RB Leipzig in the DFL-Super Cup.
Former Liverpool striker Sadio Mane appears to be the man picked by Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann to replace Lewandowski in a more fluid front four.

His opening goal is quite reminiscent of a Lewandowski goal as he latched on to Gnabry’s pass in stride and made things look easy. Read more... (430 words, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
