Bayern Munich suffered their worst ever DFB-Pokal defeat on Wednesday when they were thrashed 5-0 at the hands of Borussia Monchengladbach.
French midfielder, Kouadio Kone grabbed his first goal for Gladbach with barely a minute gone, then Algerian defender, Ramy Bensebaini and Swiss striker, Breel Embolo both scored twice in the rout.
It was the first time for 27 years Bayern have conceded so many goals so early in any competition, and Bayern’s heaviest German Cup defeat, eclipsing a 5-1 quarter-final defeat at Cologne in 1972.
