Bundesliga round-up: Leaders Bayern Munich lose to Borussia Monchengladbach
Last Updated: 25/11/17 8:31pm
Borussia Monchengladbach shocked league leaders Bayern Munich by defeating the reigning champions 2-1.
Thorgan Hazard fired in Gladbach's opener from the penalty spot after a handball from Niklas Sule in the 39th minute, and five minutes later Mattias Ginter's close-range finish doubled the advantage.
Arturo Vidal pulled a goal back with quarter of an hour to go, but Bayern could not find an equaliser.
Naby Keita fired Leipzig ahead in the 34th minute and Bernardo made sure with a header three minutes from time, lifting them two points above Schalke.
Eintracht Frankfurt missed the chance to move into the European places as they lost 1-0 at home to Bayer Leverkusen.
Eintracht's Lucas Alario hit a post twice in the space of three first-half minutes and Leverkusen capitalised on their misfortune as Kevin Volland struck a 76th-minute winner.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored one and set up another as Dortmund raced into a four-goal lead inside 25 minutes, but his dismissal with 18 minutes left contributed to an epic collapse from Peter Bosz's men, who have taken only two points from their last six league matches.
The draw was not enough to keep Schalke in second however, as RB Leipzig beat Werder Bremen 2-0 and came out the big winners on the day as leaders Bayern Munich went down 2-1 at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Dortmund's 11th-minute opener was perhaps fortunate as Aubameyang saw his initial shot saved, but bundled it in regardless as he slid towards goal - and the video referee allowed it to stand despite suspicions of handball.
It was 2-0 seven minutes later when Benjamin Stambouli put through his own net from Nuri Sahin's free-kick, and Aubameyang turned provider in the 20th minute, with a delicious cross headed in by Mario Gotze at the far post.
Raphael Guerrero made it 4-0 when a deflected ball looped up invitingly and he volleyed into the far corner.
Schalke rallied in the second half as Dortmund's defensive frailties reared their head. Guido Burgstaller headed in just after the hour mark and four minutes later Amine Harit turned home Yevhen Konoplyanka's cross.
Worries for the hosts only grew in the 72nd minute when Aubameyang, booked in the 55th minute for a foul on Naldo, saw red after bringing down Harit.
And those worries proved justified as Daniel Caligiuri fired in Schalke's third with four minutes left before Naldo's header in the fourth minute of seven added on secured a point.
Augsburg came from behind against the 10 men of Wolfsburg for a 2-1 win.
The visitors were reduced to 10 men - somewhat harshly - in the 11th minute when Maxi Arnold saw red for what appeared a soft touch on Alfred Finnbogason, despite the use of the video referee.
They took the lead regardless when Daniel Didavi struck in the 40th minute, but Augsburg came back after the break with Michael Gregoritsch levelling in the 51st minute before Finnbogason hit the winner 14 minutes from time.
Struggling Freiburg picked up a much-needed 2-1 win over Mainz. Nils Petersen opened the scoring six minutes into the second half and they needed Florian Kath's stoppage-time goal as Emil Berggreen replied seconds later in a frantic finish.
