It’s not going well for the Munich team: FC Bayern has conceded their second consecutive Bundesliga bankruptcy against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Niko Kovac’s team is no longer in the Champions League.
FC Bayern is only fifth. Thanks to a 0:3 (0:2) defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the Munich team slipped in the table. After the 0:2 against Hertha, it was already the second Bundesliga defeat for the record champion in a row. Also in the Champions League the Bavarians had only played 1:1 against Ajax Amsterdam.
The first excitement came in the fourth minute: Gladbach-Keeper Yann Sommer steered a header from Thomas Müller from a few meters away with a strong reflex next to the goal. But a possible goal would not have counted either, because the Bayern attacker was offside.
Six minutes later, the first goal was scored – on the other side. Gladbach’s attacker Alassane Pléa took a promising shot thanks to a double pass with Jonas Hofmann in the Bayern penalty area. With a sensitive flat slam into the right corner, he left Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer no chance (10th minute).

Ribéry for seals, Gnabry for Müller
And it was even worse for the Bavarians: Neuer took a quick kick to Thiago shortly afterwards. The midfielder had the ball stolen from Hofmann, who immediately put it on Lars Stindl. The Gladbach attacker let Mats Hummels drop out and shot from the edge of the penalty area into the left corner (16th). The only chance for Bayern in the first half: Robert Lewandowski shot Sommer in the arms (36th).
In the second half, Bayern coach Niko Kovac brought Franck Ribéry for Arjen Robben and Serge Gnabry for Thomas Müller. A little later David Alaba had to leave the pitch injured, Renato Sanches came for him. Despite the changes, the Munich team could hardly create any chances. Gladbach was deep in his own half, the Bavarians had no ideas.
James with a side slip attempt (clearly past), Lewandowski after a Gnabry input (not caught), once again the Polish attacker (offside) – Bayern tried a lot, but the following goal did not fall. On the contrary.
On the other hand, Gladbach’s Florian Neuhaus almost scored the third Borussia goal after a counterattack (70th). Patrick Herrmann, who scored 3-0 for the visitors shortly before the end of the match (88.), did better. Referee Frank Willenborg checked the goal by video evidence, but stayed with his decision.
