ANNOUNCER: Two clubs where one man is an icon-- Jupp Heynckes, who played at Gladbach as a four-time champion player. As Bayern coach, he won every game in his fourth spell in charge.
Gladbach suffered a painful early blow. Christoph Kramer taken to hospital after a collision with teammate Jannick Vestergaard.
On the break was where Gladbach got most joy. Referee Manuel Grafe did well to spot a handball by Niklas Sule. A penalty six minutes before half time. Put away by Thorgan Hazard. His fourth successful spot kick in the bonus league of this season. Hazard involved in a goal in each of his club's last 10 matches.
Robert Lewandowski was quiet by his own high standards. He can and does make chances out of nothing. Improvisation, here. The post kept Bayern off the score sheet.
A minute to half time, and Hazard involved again. Releasing captain Lars Stindl. The ball brought to Matthias Ginter for a simple tap-in. The player playing in the place of the injured Kramer. A career best. Third league goal this season already for the former Dortmund player.
Bayern in real trouble. Missing Arjen Robben, and Thiago injured, Bayern's second half onslaught never really materialized. Yan Sommer and the post kept Bayern out. They did have the deficit with 60 minutes left to play. Arturo Vidal through the bodies, into the Gladbach net, but that was as good as it got for Bayern.
It could have got worse, had Josip Drmic picked out the pass, and not gone for goal in added time. But joy for Gladbach. Just Dieter Hecking's second career win over Bayern. The first loss of this spell for Jupp Heynckes.
