The current German Bundesliga title-holders cruised ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach and have now tied with Borussia Dortmund in points at the top.

Borussia Dortmund‘s 2-1 lost against Augsburg yesterday in the German Bundesliga will be very costly.

The team is currently in the first position of the table with 54 points, but after today’s Bayern Munich 5-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, the teams are tied at the top with the same number of points.

And for the Bavarians, this was very important.

“We wanted to do our homework, and we had a score to settle from the first match. You don’t like to lose 3-0 at home,” goalkeeper Manuel Neuer told the club’s official website.

“You could tell in the first 20, 30 minutes we wanted to win the match. We could have scored a few more goals in the first half, but of course, we’re perfectly happy with the 5-1 victory.”

“We were bold from the start, let the ball do the work and created chances. We aren’t at the top yet,” he explained.

“A lot is possible this season. We must stay calm and give it everything to clinch the championship title.”

USA international Weston McKennie talks about his Schalke career and the progress he's made over the past two years.

“I don’t remember us ever winning by such a margin here, we always struggled,” Thomas Muller continued.

“It was an interesting match and we had gilt-edged chances. We’re happy, the matchday went superbly for us.”

“It was great to take an early two-goal lead. We had a few very good moves up front. The momentum is on our side. It starts from scratch now,” Muller commented.

“In the winter we didn’t think we’d catch up like this. We’re clearly in better shape than in autumn. We’ve tasted blood now.”
