It was freaky but a match-winning performance by German champion Bayern Munich, as it won the 2022 DFL-Supercup against RB Leipzig 5-3 at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on Saturday. While Marcel Halstenberg (59), Christopher Nkunku (77) and Daniel Olmo (89) scored for the Red Bulls, Jamal Musiala (14), Sadio Mané (31), Benjamin Pavard (45), Serge Gnabry (66), and Leroy Sané (90+8) netted for the Bavarians. It happened to be Bayern's 10th title, and has won the most to date. With eight different scorers in the match, all eyes were on the Bavarian's new signing, striker Sadio Mane from Senegal, who scored his first professional goal for the club.

As Mane scored on his professional debut with Bayern and won his maiden silverware with the side, he was delighted and looking forward to more. "I'm thrilled to have scored my first goal for Bayern. It is my dream. I'm looking forward to more titles. I'm pleased to be at this great club. It's an honour, and I'm delighted. I'm looking forward to the future. We have to get even better. Then, we can win many titles," he said after the victory.
