Talismanic striker Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring for the perennial champions before Thomas Muller added a second. Lewandowski scored once more to make it three before Kingsley Coman scored a fourth. Lewandowski completed his hattrick from the penalty spot and Leroy Sane put the game to bed in the 86th minute. Bayern Munich finished the game with 10 men after teenage defender Tanguy Nianzou was sent off for a last man challenge on Monchengladbach striker, Breel Embolo just 5 minutes after his introduction off the bench.
