After beating RB Leipzig in an entertaining eight-goal thriller in the DFL Supercup last week, the reigning Bundesliga champions were irresistible in their opening Bundesliga contest.
Mane was on target and took less than 30 minutes to notch his first goal in the German top flight, while Joshua Kimmich, Benjamin Pavard, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala (2) were also on the scoresheet in the resounding victory over the Europa League winners.
The big win sparked great celebrations in the away section and new signing Mane, already a huge hit with the Bavarian faithful, got involved in some superb scenes.

While all the players went over to the fans and applauded while stood on the pitch, the Senegal star literally climbed on the fence and ended up with a megaphone.
He then led the chants from the terraces as Bayern fans went wild. His teammates on the ground also loved it and fed off the energy from the ultras.
The 30-year-old also took off his shirt and gave it to a lucky fan in the away sector.
Mane got off the mark against Leipzig last week and had a dream Bundesliga debut on Friday, heading home from a Serge Gnabry cross to make it 3-0 to the visitors.
Bayern have quickly forgotten about Robert Lewandowski, who got his desired move to Barcelona - and in Mane they have a new talisman and firm fans' favourite.
After six stunning years at Liverpool, Mane joined Bayern for £35 million and will look to fire Hansi Flick's side to an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title.
Next up for Bayern is their first home game of the season against Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena on Sunday 14 August.
