Philippe Coutinho may struggle to get the free-kick duties at Bayern Munich this season after David Alaba scored a brilliant set piece against Mainz.
Bayern had gone behind to an early goal from Jean-Paul Boëtius, but the home side equalised through a brilliant Benjamin Pavard volley.
The reigning German champions were then awarded a free-kick just before half time and Alaba fired it into the top corner to give Bayern the lead.
Second half goals from Ivan Perisic, Kingsley Coman, Robert Lewandowski and Alphonso Davies completed the comfortable victory for Bayern.
