Mgladbach destroy Bayern 5-0 to claim historic win

Bayern Munich suffered their biggest defeat in DFB-Pokal history after losing 5-0 away to Borussia Monchengladbach, in Wednesday’s knockout tie.
Mönchengladbach’s win means it’s the biggest for a team against the Bayern in DFB-Pokal history.
Bayern have now been eliminated in the second round of the DFB Pokal for the second year in a row.
The Bundesliga champions have lost a game by at least a five-goal margin for the first time since December 1978, 43 years ago, against Fortuna Düsseldorf in Bundesliga (1-7).
Gladbach took the lead on two minutes when a sloppy pass by Alphonso Davies near his own area was snapped up by Kouadio Kone, who traded passes with Breel Embolo and fired home.
In the 15th minute Gladbach went 2-0 thanks to Ramy Bensebaini whose strike went past Manuel Neuer.
A penalty was awarded when Lucas Hernandez went in high against Embolo and Bensebaini sent Neuer the wrong way to make it 3-0 on 21 minutes.
Embolo then compounded Bayern’s misery with two rapid-fire goals in the 51st and 57th minutes to end the game 5-0.
