Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2 Bayern Munich: Bayern squander lead for shock loss

Borussia Monchengladbach
Borussia Monchengladbach are nine points behind leaders Bayern Munich

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich blew a 2-0 lead to lose to Borussia Monchengladbach - just their fourth defeat in Hansi Flick's 60-game reign.

A Robert Lewandowski penalty and a 20-yard Leon Goretzka effort seemed to put the champions in control.

But Jonas Hofmann got Gladbach back level with two finishes from Lars Stindl's passes.

Florian Neuhaus then smashed home a brilliant winner three minutes after the break for the seventh-placed hosts.

Two of Flick's four losses in his Treble-winning 14 months as Bayern boss have come against Gladbach.

Bayern remain top of the German top flight but RB Leipzig could overtake them with victory over fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund on Saturday (17:30 GMT kick-off).
