Rampant Bayern Move Level With Bundesliga Leaders

Bundesliga

Result: Borussia Monchengladbach 1-5 Bayern Munich

Date: 02 March 2019

Venue: Borussia-Park

Bayern Munich moved level on points with Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund following a 5-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday evening.
 
The Bavarians broke the deadlock as early as the second minutes as James Rodriguez's free-kick found Javi Martinez, who sent a fine header into the roof of the net.
 
The lead was doubled on 13 minutes as Thomas Muller got back among the goals with a close-range finish after his initial strike was saved by Yann Sommer.
 
Gladbach had the ball in the back of the net after 21 minutes, but Alassane Plea's strike was chalked off for offside.
 
The home side continued to push for a goal and they were eventually rewarded in the 37th minute, with Lars Stindl scoring from a tight angle.
 
Bayern regrouped at halftime and came out firing in the second stanza, as Robert Lewandowski restored the two-goal advantage with a cracking finish into the roof of the net.
 
The third goal certainly put Bayern back in charge as they were able to slow things, much to the displeasure of the Gladbach supporters.
 
However, any hopes of a comeback were diminished with 14 minutes remaining as Serge Gnabry got on the scoresheet to bag Bayern's fourth of the night.
 
Lewandowski rounded off the scoring for the visitors in second-half stoppage time, after converting a penalty to complete his brace.
 
Despite claiming three points, Bayern remain second due to Dortmund's superior goal difference.
