MÖNCHENGLADBACH, Germany (AP) — Surprise Bundesliga leader Borussia Mönchengladbach showed it’s a serious title contender by beating Bayern Munich 2-1 on Saturday with a last-gasp penalty.
Left-back Ramy Bensebaini scored both goals for Gladbach, which last won the title in 1977. Bensebaini headed in a corner to draw Gladbach level after Ivan Perisic’s volley for Bayern, and then scored the decisive penalty in added time.
“That shows why we’re rightly up there,” Gladbach coach Marco Rose said. “We tried until the 90th minute to show what’s made us stand out in the last few weeks and months, and we got the penalty.”
After scoring the opener, it was as if “we forgot how to play football somehow,” said
