Bundesliga

Result: Bayern Munich 1-2 Borussia Monchengladbach

Date: 07 January 2022

Venue: Allianz Arena

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, Alphonso Davies and Leroy Sane didn’t feature for Bayern after testing positive for Covid-19.

Though in hindsight, it didn’t bother the host who took the lead two minutes near the midway phase when Robert Lewandowski brought in a pass from Thomas Muller to finish with ease.

It came as no concern to Gladbach, who levelled three minutes to the half-hour mark courtesy of Florian Neuhaus after the Bavarians failed to deal with a cross into the area.

The turnaround followed five minutes later when Stefan Lainer pounced on poor defending from a corner-kick by Luca Netz to head into an inviting net.

A positive end to the first half showed for the host as a move down the byline by Lewandowski led to a smart shot that cannoned off the upright on the cusp of halftime.

Bayern continued to show the promising signs following the resumption and closed in again through a smart volley from the edge of the area by Marc Roca.

Gladbach lived dangerously again as Lewandowski struck the crossbar for the second time in the match following 61 minutes from a smart attempt in the area.

The Bavarians put their hopes on fresh faces from the bench, as Paul Wanner replaced Roca and Lucas Schrobenhauser on for Malik Tillman.

Bayern were on the edge towards full-time and nearly conceded a third through Alassane Plea, but Ulreich saved which didn’t prevent them going down 2-1 in the end.
