Mane came off the bench in the second half, replacing goalscorer Kingsley Coman with his side 3-0 up.

The match was the former Liverpool player's first in 110 days.

Mane missed Bayern's 1-0 Champions League first-leg win at Paris Saint-Germain, but is in line to figure in the return fixture in Munich on March 8.

Mane, who won the Champions League and Premier League with Liverpool before moving to Munich in the summer of 2022, has 11 goals and four assists in 23 games with Bayern.
