Bayern Munich usually distribute the wins in Germany, not the other way around.

The Bavarian powerhouse got a taste of its own medicine on Wednesday when Borussia Monchengladbach knocked Bayern out of the German Cup with a well-deserved 5-0 win in front of their excited fans.

It was Bayern’s biggest defeat in the competition, the first time they conceded five goals in the German Cup since the 2012 final, when Borussia Dortmund closed out a domestic league and cup double with a 5-2 victory.

Bayern responded by winning the Champions League league, cup and treble the following year and every league title since.

Gladbach built an early three-goal lead with Kouadio Kone opening the scoring in the second minute, Ramy Bensebaini adding another goal at 15 and then converting a penalty at 21.

It could have been more if the home team also missed two good chances in the middle.

It was the 35th minute before Bayern managed a shot on goal, with Serge Gnabry testing Yann Sommer in Gladbach’s goal. Leon Goretzka forced a good save from Sommer after the break, but Bayern’s recovery was short-lived.

Breel Embolo made it 4-0 in the 51st and scored his second goal six minutes later with Manuel Neuer preventing worse when he saved from Dennis Zakaria.

Local fans chanted ‘Oh, wie ist das schon! (Oh how wonderful this is!) ‘And now I can look forward to Sunday’s third round draw.

Bayern were again without coach Julian Nagelsmann on the bench due to his coronavirus infection, but were able to communicate with his assistant, Dino Toppmoller, who he replaced.

Bayern started with Lucas Hernández and Joshua Kimmich in the lineup.

The former learned early Tuesday that he would not face prison for violating a restraining order when he won his appeal in Madrid, and Kimmich made his first appearance since causing a furor over the weekend by expressing concern about receiving a coronavirus vaccine. .

Gladbach was one of only two teams to take points away from Bayern in the league this season. The teams drew 1-1 in the opening game.
