Senegal and Bayern Munich Star Sadio Mane Reaches 200 Club Goals

Sadio Mane continued his fine goal-scoring form in Bayern Munich’s comprehensive victory against Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday evening.

The former Liverpool forward endured a six-game barren run after a blistering start to life with the Bundesliga giants but after the international break, Mane has been in stupendous form.

After notching his maiden goal for Bayern Munich in the Champions League last Tuesday, Mane continued in a similar fashion to get his name on the scoresheet as Bayern strolled to round-of-16 qualification.

How did Sadio Mane score his 200th club career goal?

The 30-year-old Senegal international neatly controlled a pass from the flanks before driving towards goal as he played an inch-perfect give-and-go with Leon Goretzka to slot the ball at the back of the net.

His goal broke the game’s deadlock as Thomas Muller and Goretzka gave the Bavarians their fourth win on the trot in the Champions League, sealing qualification to the next phase of the competition.
