Borussia Monchengladbach puts 5 past Bayern Munich in DFB-Pokal clash

Bayern Munich suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach in a DFB-Pokal second-round clash.

Ramy Bensebaini and Breel Embolo scored twice each as Borussia Monchengladbach unceremoniously dumped Bayern Munich out of the DFB-Pokal with a staggering 5-0 victory.

It was a disheartening show for shambolic Bayern at Borussia-Park on Wednesday as the Bundesliga leaders were put to the sword, conceding three goals in the opening 21 minutes.

Bensebaini struck twice after Kouadio Kone opened the scoring with his first-ever goal for Die Fohlen, with Bayern at sixes and sevens as head coach Julian Nagelsmann watched on at home as he isolates after testing positive for coronavirus earlier last week.

Switzerland international, Embolo eased himself to a quickfire brace early in the second half to help Gladbach cruise into the third round, knocking Bayern out at the same stage they were sensationally beaten by Holstein Kiel at last season.

In the second minute, Kone capitalized on slack Bayern defending to open the scoring, side-footing in with his right foot after Bayern left-back Alphonso Davies gifted Gladbach possession with a poor pass.

Jonas Hofmann should have doubled their lead when he failed to hit the target after racing clear and Manuel Neuer showed great reflexes to tip Embolo’s drive over the crossbar, with the Bundesliga champions all over the place at the back.

Bayern was caught napping again in the 15th minute and Bensebaini made them pay, bursting into the penalty area unmarked and sweeping in Hofmann’s cutback with his right foot after a stunning play from the hosts.

Things went from bad to worse for the five-times Champions League winners when Lucas Hernandez was adjudged to have fouled Embolo and Bensebaini impressively slotted into the back of the net from the spot.

Dayot Upamecano was enduring a nightmare on his 23rd birthday, and he gifted Gladbach a fourth goal six minutes into the second half, failing to deal with a high ball down the middle and allowing Embolo to get on the scoresheet.

Upamecano was hauled off after that mistake, but there was no improvement in the Bayern defending as Embolo struck again soon after, beating a stunned Neuer after Luca Netz sent him clear.

Gladbach shot-stopper Yann Sommer denied Serge Gnabry with a brilliant save after keeping out a Robert Lewandowski header and Josip Stanisic blazed over the crossbar as Bayern were unable to salvage some pride.

Borussia Monchengladbach is now through to the third round of DFB-Pokal for the sixth season running and Bayern Munich has been knocked out on the second round for the second time in two years.

Both sides will be back in action the weekend. Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich make a trip to the capital as they take on Union Berlin at the Alte Foersterei on Saturday 30, while Borussia Monchengladbach, sitting 12th on the Bundesliga table will host Bochum at Borussia Park as they seek to climb to the top half of the table.
