Bayern Munich 5-2 Mainz: Flick’s comeback kings strike again

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich completed a superb second-half comeback to claim an ultimately comfortable 5-2 home win over Mainz.

Bayern Munich came from behind for an eighth successive Bundesliga match as the champions overcame struggling Mainz 5-2 at Allianz Arena.

Hansi Flick’s side have not taken the lead in a league game since October and might have been staring down the barrel of a second defeat of the season had Danny Latza beaten Manuel Neuer early in the second half.

Mainz had a 2-0 lead at that stage, with Jonathan Burkardt and Alexander Hack scoring in the first half, but Joshua Kimmich and Leroy Sane restored parity in the space of five minutes.

Editors’ Picks

Robin Quaison struck the woodwork as 17th-placed Mainz fought back, though Bayern ultimately had too much.

Niklas Sule’s deflected strike and Robert Lewandowski’s double – the first of which came from the spot – settling a thrilling contest firmly in Bayern’s favour.
