5-Star Bayern Pull Level with Dortmund

Bayern Munich pulled level on points with Borussia Dortmund at the Bundesliga summit after thumping Borussia Monchengladbach 5-1 on Saturday.

Long-time leaders Dortmund had opened the door for Niko Kovac’s side after suffering a shock 2-1 defeat to Augsburg on Friday and the reigning champions never looked in danger of failing to take advantage as they swatted aside their hosts, who now sit fourth.

Javi Martinez gave them a second-minute lead before Thomas Muller’s fifth league goal of the campaign extended their lead nine minutes later.

Lars Stindl pulled one back for the hosts in the 37th minute, but Robert Lewandowski’s glorious finish shortly after the restart extinguished any hopes of a comeback as Bayern – who added two more late on through Serge Gnabry and a Lewandowski penalty – cruised to an 11th win in their last 12 Bundesliga games.
