Monchengladbach stun Bundesliga leaders in a five-goal thriller


Bayern Munich surrendered a 2-0 advantage as Borussia Monchengladbach stun Hansi Flick’s men with a 3-2 comeback win.  

It seemed to be a walk in the park for defending Champions when Robert Lewandowski, with his 20th top-flight goal of the season, scored the opener from the penalty spot after a bizarre handball from Florian Neuhaus.

Six minutes later, Leon Goretzka doubled Bayern’s lead with a thunderbolt from outside the box. But, two goals in ten minutes from Jonas Hofman restored parity before the first-half whistle.

Monchengladbach started the second half where they left the first as Florian Neuhaus beat Manuel Neuer for the third time in the 49th-minute. The defeat means Bayern Munich could lose the top spot if RB Leipzig beat Borussia Dortmund in the today’s evening clash at Red Bull Arena.

Defensive woes continue for Hansi Flick, who suffered a second defeat against Monchengladbach in his 14-month spell at Allianz Arena, as Manuel Neuer hasn’t kept a clean sheet in the last 10 games.

Upcoming fixtures for Munich and Monchengladbach

On Wednesday, Bayern Munich will be in action in DFB-Pokal game against second division side Holstein Kiel, while Borussia Monchengladbach will travel to VfB Stuttgart in Bundesliga next Saturday.
