Gladbach on the front foot
The Foals roared out of the blocks and struck after only 70 seconds, Koné gaining possession in Bayern’s half and beating Neuer following a one-two with Embolo. Jonas Hofmann soon had only Neuer to beat but fired wide. The Bayern keeper then made a strong save to deny Embolo two minutes later.
Denis Zakaria miscued a volley, but Gladbach doubled the lead when a Hofmann square invited Bensebaini to slot home. The hosts were awarded a penalty after an Hernández challenge on Embolo. Bensebaini converted from the spot. Bayern went looking for a reply but Upamecano headed over the bar and Gnabry saw an effort saved. Goretzka fired over from 20 yards as Bayern went into the break three goals down.
