Julian Nagelsmann‘s side have been steadily improving after a shaky start to the season and made easy work of their opponents today,
finding themselves a goal up after just five minutes when Serge Gnabry controlled Sadio Mane’s cross and fired home.
Watch the incredible big goals of Bayern Munich now!
And the hosts well and truly took control of the game after 28 minutes,
with Jamal Musiala playing a neat one-two with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and slotting the ball in to make it 2-0.
Mainz had chances of their own in the first half,
and could have grabbed a lifeline when they struck the post twice in quick succession.
The away side were punished for their profligacy minutes later when Mane was upended in the Mainz penalty area. The Senegalese forward saw his spot-kick saved by Robin Zentner,
but was alive to the rebound and buried it at the second attempt to put Bayern well and truly in charge before half-time.
It looked as though the game was done and dusted
– but there was more drama before half-time when Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich caught Jonatan Burkardt with his hand to give away a penalty at the other end. Burkardt missed the penalty,
but Mainz scored moments later when Silvan Widmer headed home from Aaron Martin’s corner.
The second half began slowly,
but Bayern restored their three-goal advantage shortly before the hour mark when Leon Goretzka got on the end of Mane’s cross to score his side’s fourth goal.

Sadio Mane missed a penalty,
but scored the rebound and set up two more as Bayern Munich romped to victory over Mainz.
It only took Bayern five minutes to go in front when Mane
found Serge Gnabry in the middle and he had time to steady himself before slotting home.
The goal of the day came just before the half-hour mark when Jamal Musiala
exchange passes on the edge of the box with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting before striking home from the edge of the area.
It was three just before the break when VAR found Mane was brought down in the box and though he hit a poor penalty,
Robin Zentner parried the ball straight back to him and he gleefully scored.
Just before the half-time whistle,
Mainz got on the scoresheet when after Jonathan Burkardt had just missed a penalty for the visitors,
Silvan Widmer headed home Anthony Caci’s corner.
Mane’s fine cross for Leon Goretzka restored the three-goal lead in the second half and then Mathys Tel scored his second goal for the club after coming on as a substitute,
before Mainz substitute Marcus Ingvartsen also netted after a sloppy pass from Bayern stopper Sven Ulreich.
Choupo-Moting then scored his fifth goal in as many games,
after Kingsley Coman’s run and centre,
giving Bayern a four-goal margin which did not flatter them and leaves them top of the table, at least until Union Berlin play Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.
