“shocking!” – That is the only way to describe what happened on Wednesday evening in Mönchengladbach. Robert Lewandowski’s side, who have won their last seven away matches and scored at least three goals in each of their opponents, had been hoping to advance to the next round of the German Cup, while their dreams at Borussia Park of another treble title collapsed like a soap bubble.
Atomic take-off of Borussia. Three goals in 21 minutes!
The hosts started the Wednesday meeting in very impressive fashion. In less than two minutes, Borussia was in front. This was due to only 20-year-old midfielder Koudio Kone, who defeated Manuel Neuer with a certain flat shot after an action with Brill Empolo.
Bayern was not the same – it was dominated by Borussia and made huge mistakes in defense. Dayot Upamecano made two fatal errors in the tens of seconds, but neither Jonas Hoffmann nor Brill Empolo managed to surprise Neuer.
Only Rami Bensbini managed to do this, not once, but twice! In the 15th minute, the Algerian took advantage of Hoffmann’s precise shot from a few meters away and ended a superb display for the Borussia team, and only six minutes later he turned into a goal from Lucas Hernandez’s mistake on Empolo. After 21 minutes, Borussia beat Bayern 3: 0.
Bavarians They could not find themselves at the Mönchengladbach stadium. In the first half, they created one situation that ended with a shot from Serge Gnabry, which Jan Sommer managed without any problems.

A few minutes later, Upamecano was gone, and Embolo still scored another hit. After Netz’s pass, he overtook Swiss striker Lucas Hernandez and won the duel with Manuel Neuer with a free kick into the long corner of the goal, scoring 5-0.
