German Cup Shocker – Bayern Munich Worst Defeat: Bayern Munich suffered their biggest defeat since 1978 as they were thrashed at Borussia Monchengladbach in the German Cup second round. Bundesliga champions were hammered 5-0 by Mönchengladbach, going out of the competition in the second round for the second season in a row.

Bayern last lost a game by a five-goal margin 43 years ago when Fortuna Dusseldorf beat them 7-1 in the Bundesliga.
 
Their record defeat remains a 7-0 home loss to Schalke in the league back in 1976 – but this is their biggest defeat in a competition they have won a record 20 times.

German Cup Shocker – Bayern Munich Worst Defeat: Borussia Monchengladbach sensationally struck three times in the opening 21 minutes to demolish Bayern Munich 5-0 on Wednesday and dump them out of the German Cup following their heaviest defeat in the competition.

They became the first team to score five goals against the mighty Bavarians since Borussia Dortmund’s 5-2 win in the 2012 German Cup final and the first ever team to score three goals in the first 21 minutes against Bayern in a German Cup game. 

“I’m absolutely shocked. We simply didn’t turn up,” Bayern sports director and former player Hasan Salihamidzic told ARD. “We were just not there. We did not win a single tackle or challenge in the entire first half.

“Everything that could go wrong went wrong. We let ourselves be outplayed in every situation – a collective blackout.”

Gladbach scored with five of their six shots on target – with Bayern having more possession and more efforts than the hosts without scoring.

German Cup Shocker – Bayern Munich Worst Defeat: It was only the second defeat Bayern, who named a first-choice team, have suffered under Julian Nagelsmann and ended a run of scoring in 85 consecutive games. Nagelsmann was at home self-isolating, having tested positive for Covid-19.
