Bayern Munich slipped to a 2-1 home defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.

Marca reported that Bayern Munich were without a number of key players on Friday evening, with Kingsley Coman, Corentin Tolisso, Manuel Neuer, Alphonso Davies, Leroy Sane, Lucas Hernandez, Dayot Upamecano and Tanguy Nianzou all missing the match after testing positive for COVID-19.

“Leon Goretzka‘s continued absence caused further problems for the former RB Leipzig coach, with the German international still struggling with a hip ailment.”

Bayern Munich  took the lead after 18 minutes, with Robert Lewandowski firing a powerful shot just inside the right post.

The game was played behind closed doors as  Germany continues to battle against the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus.

 Superb play from a midfield of Florian Neuhaus, Christoph Kramer and Luca Netz  completed an unlikely turnaround.

“Bayern‘s lead at the summit of the Bundesliga table is now nine points, although they have left Borussia Dortmund with a game in hand, meaning it could be down to six by the end of the weekend”. Marca.
