Bayern suffer late defeat at Monchengladbach to fall further off Bundesliga pace

7 December 2019

Bayern Munich’s seven-year reign as Bundesliga champions is under severe threat following a 2-1 defeat at league leaders Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Although Bayern grabbed a 49th-minute lead through Ivan Perisic at the Gladbach Arena, the hosts snatched victory with a double from Ramy Bensabaini, including an added-time penalty for a foul on Marcus Thuram by Javi Martinez, who was also sent off.

The visitors, who have now lost back-to-back league games for the first time since May 2015, have dropped to seventh, seven points adrift of Gladbach, who remain a point clear of RB Leipzig after their 3-1 home win over Hoffenheim, helped by a Timo Werner brace to take his tally to 20 for the season.
