FC Bayern Munich have won league title close to 9 years at a stretch and have kept consistency both in Europe and in Germany for many years.

The club had fallen before to Borrusia Monchengladbach in the dfb Pokal cup, losing with a thumping scoreline of 5:0, before their meeting yesterday ahead of the R18 of the Bundesliga games.

The Bavarians who had been struck badly by covid 19 virus, with majority of their first team players struck with the virus and are at home self isolating and taking precautions.

Ahead of the encounter which turned out not to be what they expected,the head coach of Bayern Munich, Julian Naggelsman, has sworn to take out revenge on Monchengladbach, but things weren’t as he had thought.

Despite taking the lead through Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Monchengladblach struck back to secure maximum points.

A makeshift Bayern Munich team conceded two goals in four minutes to suffer a 2-1 loss to visitors Borussia Moenchengladbach on Friday as the Bundesliga resumed, following a three-week winter break.

Missing nine players through covid-19 infections and more to Africa Cup of Nations duties and injuries, league leaders Bayern still easily bossed Gladbach around for some 30 minutes and took the lead through top scorer Robert Lewandowski in the 18th.

But the visitors sensationally struck twice with their first two chances of the game, with a Florian Neuhaus volley in the 27th minute and Stefan Lainer’s glancing header shortly after turning the game around.

Top scorer Lewandowski hit the woodwork twice as Bayern desperately pushed for an equaliser and missed a bagful of chances.

Bayern are on 43 points with Borussia Dortmund, who travel to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, in second place on 34.
