Bayern Munich made a triumphant return from the international break with a 3-1 victory over Mainz 05.

It was not always pretty for the Bavarians, but there were some amazing sequences that gave fans a taste of how good this could all look once everyone is back in sync (and off of the injured list).

Even with a banged up crew, Thomas Tuchel was able to push the right buttons enough to coax a victory out of his boys.

Let’s take a look at what is on tap for this episode of the Postgame Show:

  • A gander at Tuchel’s starting XI selections.
  • A rundown of the scoring.
  • Some thoughts on why the team’s defense looked so out of sorts at times.
  • The lack of service to Harry Kane continues.
  • Eyeing the positives of what could have been a disaster is Mainz could finish.
