Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 Bayern Munich: Bundesliga leaders beat champions

Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach scored an injury-time winner to beat champions Bayern Munich.

Bayern - who have won the title for the past seven years - are now in seventh, seven points behind Gladbach.

They had led when Ivan Perisic smashed home from the edge of the box.

But Ramy Bensebaini powered in a header to level and then scored an injury-time penalty to seal a dramatic victory after Javi Martinez fouled Marcus Thuram in the box and was sent off.

Bayern - who lost Corentin Tolisso to a first-half hamstring injury - have now lost two league games in a row under interim boss Hans-Dieter Flic.

Monchengladbach, who last won the title in 1977, are one point above RB Leipzig - who beat Hoffenheim 3-1.
