Borussia Monchengladbach has had a very good run this season, but then they crashed into a wall named Bayern Munich.

Borussia Monchengladbach has surprised everyone this season.

The team had won 13 matches up to today, drawing four times.

But their good run faces a very difficult rival by the name of Bayern Munich.

The current German Bundesliga title-holders did not have mercy and ended up winning 5-1 against Gladbach today.

“I think you could easily give a foul for their opening goal. It’s certainly up for discussion, but there’s no way around the fact that we were caught napping early on. There’s no explanation for it,” Monchengladbach’s Yann Sommer told the club’s official website.

“When you’re 2-0 down at home against a side like Bayern after eleven minutes, then it’s not going to be easy to get a result.”

“We can’t allow that to happen. We gave the ball away too easily, afforded them space and gifted them chances. We managed to get back into the game at 2-1 and had the fans behind us,” he continued.

Weston McKennie talks about his accelerated development at Schalke

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

“We wanted to come out for the second half and keep things tight at the back, and then we’d see how the game developed, but we handed them another huge chance and then the goal came immediately too. We simply gave Bayern too many chances today.”

“We went into the game with big intentions, but then we find ourselves 2-0 down after ten minutes,” Lars Stindl added.

“That makes life very difficult against Bayern. We fought back well though and took a lot of risks, which obviously opened us up to conceding chances, but we also created some ourselves.”

“I think we deserved to get a goal back, but then going 3-1 down right after half time really made it tough for us once again,” he said.

“Bayern showed their quality in the end and deserved to win by the margin they did. We need to build on the things we did well earlier in the year, and there were signs of them today. Our focus is on the crucial weeks ahead.”
