The Bundesliga champions dominated the early stages and went in front in the 14th minute, when Jamal Musiala beat goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi with a low strike.

It was soon 2-0, with Mané opening his Bayern account when he finished off a lovely team move. And Benjamin Pavard increased the visitors’ advantage on the stroke of half-time after being tee’d up by Musiala.

Into the second half and Marcel Halstenberg pulled a goal back for Leipzig when he headed past Manuel Neuer from a corner.

But it didn’t take long for Bayern to re-establish their three goal lead, with Serge Gnabry lashing in a loose ball at the end of another excellent passing move.

Leipzig weren’t finished yet, however, and when they were awarded a penalty for Pavard’s foul on Dani Olmo, Christopher Nkunku converted from the spot to make it 4-2.

And Olmo himself then got on the scoresheet in the dying minutes to set up a nail-biting finish, only for Leroy Sané to put it back beyond doubt when he scored Bayern’s fifth goal in the eighth minute of injury time.

It is the 10th time in their history Bayern have won the Supercup and they begin their quest to claim an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title when they travel to Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday night.
