Monchengladbach 0-1 Bayern Munich: Muller ends goal drought

German Bundesliga By: Ayodeji Tunde | 19/03/2017

Bayern Munich beat Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 courtesy of a second-half strike from Thomas Muller to now have a 13-point cushion at the summit of the Bundesliga log.

Thomas Muller's second Bundesliga goal of the season was enough for Bayern Munich to see off Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 at Borussia-Park on Sunday, as the champions seized on RB Leipzig's loss to extend their commanding lead at the top of the table. 

The Germany international had last netted in the German top flight in December 2016, going nine games without a goal, but he ended his drought with a fine finish after the break to seal the win for Carlo Ancelotti's men.

This weekend's results see Bayern open up a 13-point lead over RB Leipzig following the second-placed team's defeat to Werder Bremen, with nine games remaining.
