Bayern Munich, led by top scorers Sadio Mane and Matisse de Ligt, achieved an undisputed friendly victory in Washington. In only the first two matches in the pipeline, Munich beat DC United 6-2 (3-0) on Wednesday (local time). England champions Manchester City will be a tougher test from the bottom of the table in the MLS Eastern Conference on Sunday night in Green Bay.
And in front of about 20,000 spectators in Washington, Mane, who was signed by Liverpool FC, showed that he would like to take on the role of the officer after the departure of world footballer Robert Lewandowski. With a bit of luck, the Senegalese turned 1-0 early (the fifth). Marcel Sabitzer (12th minute) and Serge Gnabry added a pass from Mane (44) before the end of the first half, before two more goals from Mane were canceled due to offside.
After changing teams, coach Julian Nagelsmann left eleven completely different teams. About 90 seconds after being substituted, De Ligt was brought in from Juventus Turin, who had only arrived in the evening after much traveling and trained with the team for the first time in the morning, scoring to make it 4-0 (47). He later had to leave the field prematurely (ranked 74). Hard day, no injury,” Nagelsmann said.
Shortly after Joshua Zirkzee’s 5-0 lead (51), the homeowners encouraged Skage Lehland’s 5-1 (54) lead with fireworks. A week and a half before the start of the competitive match with the duel Supercup in the cup winners RB Leipzig, Munich had to accept 5:2 via Theodore Ku-DiPietro (83) in humid and warm temperatures, Thomas Muller ensured the final score in overtime. In addition to superstars Mane and de Ligt, Nassir Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch, who signed for Ajax Amsterdam, made their debut with Munich.
When England scorer Wayne Rooney, who was already active as a professional at DC United, can take over there as the new coach is still open. The 36-year-old is still waiting for his work visa.
