Bayern Munich 6-0 Borussia Monchengladbach: Initial reactions and observations

Bayern cruise past BMG and Lewandowski puts on a show. What a game.

Following a two week break that the squad desperately needed, Bayern Munich enter the final set of games more or less refreshed. With just three points needed to become champions, the team could even go into this game with the Meisterschale already in their hands — at the time of writing this into, RB Leipzig have not yet faced Borussia Dortmund, but their game happens before Bayern’s.

Should Leipzig lose, the result of this game becomes irrelevant. However, that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing else to play for. Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are both chasing personal records — Lewy looking to beat Gerd Muller’s legendary 40 goal season, while Thomas wants to better his own Bundesliga assist record from last year.

Meanwhile, Hansi Flick, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Javi Martinez will all be seeing the touchline for the final few games of their Bayern journey. The four of them have done a lot for this club, and seeing them leave will mark the end of yet another era at Bayern. Let’s hope the team can vanquish the Foals and get back to winning ways this week.

It’s Bayern time.
