Bayern Munich pick up where they left off with the first Bundesliga goal of 2015/16

Tom Victor

Welcome to the new Bundesliga, same as the old Bundesliga.

Some had hoped Bayern Munich’s German Super Cup defeat might be a sign that their dominance was coming to the end, but the reigning champions have wasted little time getting back to business in the league.

It took just 27 minutes for Mehdi Benatia to put Pep Guardiola’s team ahead against Hamburg, nodding home a Xabi Alonso free-kick, as the reigning champions ran out 5-0 winners.

New signing Douglas Costa scoring one and laying on a goal for Thomas Muller with an unreal outside-of-the-boot cross.

After three successive Bundesliga titles, each one by a margin of 10 points or more, Bayern will take some stopping this season.
