Before even stepping on to the pitch, Bayern Munich were already crowned 2020/21 Bundesliga champions after RB Leipzig’s loss to Borussia Dortmund earlier on Saturday.

As such, the spirits were high amongst the hosts and they got off to a lightning-quick start.

Goals from Thomas Müller, Kingsley Coman and two from Robert Lewandowski set up a 4-0 lead at halftime.

After the break, Gladbach still couldn’t find their footing and Lewandowski scored a penalty to go one goal within Gerd Müller’s Bundesliga record before Leroy Sané hit the sixth.

However, the match wasn’t all smiles for Bayern as substitute Leon Goretzka came off with an injury after just 10 minutes.

Then his replacement, Tanguy Nianzou, was shown a direct red card after just five minutes on the pitch forcing the champions to end the match with 10 men.

With the result, Bayern go 10 points clear at the top, while Gladbach sit seventh.
