Bayern Munich Bochum Goals 7-0 (21/08/2022)
Leroy Sane scored on their opening assault of the game to give them the lead,
and new acquisition Matthijs de Ligt scored his first goal for Bayern in the 25th minute by heading in a corner at the far post.
Just over the halfway point,
Kingsley Coman’s close-range strike after Bochum failed to clear made it 3-0 and all but ended the game,
and Mane’s low shot from a tight angle in the 42nd minute capped off the first-half flurry.
Since star striker Robert Lewandowski left for Barcelona,
Bayern, who had scored 15 goals in three league games,
let up a bit. On the hour, however, the Senegal international added another with a penalty.
When Sane pressured Cristian Gamboa into an own goal,
the hosts were further humiliated. Serge Gnabry, a substitute,
then made it look so simple with a thunderous low shot off the post to make it 7-0.
In the 33rd minute,
Kingsley Coman capitalised on a Riemann save to make it 3-0 just before halftime after the goalkeeper had done well to stop Thomas Muller’s original shot.
Mane scored again as Bochum gave in to relentless pressure. Midway through the second half,
the former Liverpool player doubled his total by calmly converting from the penalty spot after Coman was brought down in the box.
By deflecting a pass from Joshua Kimmich into his own goal,
Bochum defender Gamboa made things considerably worse for his team. Late in the game,
Gnabry increased the score to 7-0,
giving the visitors the victory.
By putting on yet another performance of the highest calibre on Bundesliga Matchday 3,
the Bavarians maintained their winning streak this season.
When Bayern Munich defeated VfL Bochum 0-7 away from home,
it added three more points to its celebration of a high-scoring victory. Bayern has 15 goals so far this season while only giving up one.
Due to Alphonso Davies’ minor injury, Jamal Musiala’s absence,
and Serge Gnabry’s wrist pain,
Julian Nagelsmann changed the starting lineup, starting Matthijs de Ligt for the first time in place of Alphonso Davies on the left,
Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman in place of Thomas Muller and Sadio Mane,
and playing Lucas Hernandez on the left.
Leroy Sane started the attack that resulted in the first goal with a fantastic team goal,
and he then capped it off with a beautiful right-footed strike from an awkward angle. De Ligt headed in the first goal in a Bayern jersey a little while afterwards.
Later, the third and fourth goals were scored by Kingsley Coman and Sadio Mane,
respectively. Before scoring his fourth goal,
the Senegalese had a goal disallowed because he accidentally touched his hand with the ball as he pushed it with his foot against the left post. Mane scored his fourth goal a minute later,
and it’s safe to say he didn’t want another goal to be overturned!
After Sadio Mane converted the penalty in the 60th minute to complete his first hat trick,
VfL Bochum essentially gave up. The second half began a little more calmly,
but the team did not stop scoring goals.
Nine minutes later,
Bochum player Christian Gamboa added Bayern’s sixth goal of the game with an own goal, prolonging Bochum’s nightmares.
Just before the game finished, Serge Gnabry, who had come on as a substitute,
scored Bayern’s seventh goal, capping an extraordinary away win and returning the team to the top of the league. He received a beautiful assist from youngster Gabriel Vidovic.

as Bundesliga champions,
provide free highlights and match reports Sadio Mane has scored four goals in four outings since transferring from Liverpool to Bayern Munich this summer, helping Bayern Munich extend its perfect start to the season to three games.
Bayern Munich thrashed VfL Bochum 7-0 to keep their pristine Bundesliga record intact. Sadio Mane scored twice in the victory.
Leroy Sane’s fourth-minute strike served as the catalyst for Bayern’s devastating four-goal blitz that completely destroyed Bochum in the span of 38 first-half minutes.
After Mane’s second goal and Bayern’s fifth goal from the penalty spot on the hour,
an own goal by Cristian Gamboa and a late seventh goal by Serge Gnabry brought Bayern’s goal total after three games to 15.
With three wins in a row, Bayern now leads the Bundesliga with nine points,
two more than Borussia Monchengladbach, who is in second place.
The great white sharks came to feast in the Vonovia Ruhrstadion at VfL Bochum because the water smelled like blood. Bayern Munich travelled to VfL Bochum with the desire—or rather the need—to firmly establish their superiority and put an edgy squad that had defeated them 4-2 the season before in their place.
The Bavarians accomplished exactly that,
hammering seven goals past a Bochum team that was given no relief; in fact,
it may have been eight goals had Sadio Mané’s goal not been disallowed for handball even though his arm was in the most natural position.
It was a comprehensive demolition that served as a real demonstration of what Julian Nagelsmann had been working towards with all of his tactical adjustments over the previous year or so.
