In the 15th round of the Bundesliga, Borussia Mönchengladbach defeated Bayern 3-2 in the derby, while they lost 2-0 after 26 minutes.
With a goal by Lewandowski, who scored a penalty in the 20th minute, Bayern took the lead, and just six minutes later Goretzka helped Sane to 2-0.
But as Lars Stindl and Jonas Hofmann punished the guests’ high-set defense, the hosts played very well and managed to equalize by halftime. In the 36th minute, Stindl first found Hofmann with a great 1:2 shot, and in the last moments of the first half, he lost the same player with an even better ball, who went to Neuer and scored 2:2.
At the beginning of the second half, the hosts started with the same tone. Hofmann found Neuhaus beautifully in the 49th minute, who reached the fork with a perfect shot for 3:2. Bayern squeezed and requested an equalizer until the end, but the hosts held on and had their first win in the championship since the end of November.
