UPDATE: A Lukas Piszczek goal midway through the first-half was enough to see Bayern Munich take the points at Borussia-Park on Friday night, condemning Gladbach to a sixth defeat at home in the league this season.
Home manager Bruno Labbadia was furious about the decision not to award a penalty after Jérôme Boateng’s apparent foul on Oscar Wendt just before the interval. Bayern climb a place to sixth ahead, while Gladbach stay 15th (table below not updated).
Gladbach and Bayern get the weekend under way in 1.Bundesliga tonight with both teams in a good run of form, and would both be undefeated in six save for Bayern’s defeat at Dortmund three weeks ago. Gladbach are the only team in the league not to win at home this season, while Bayern have just a solitary point away from home in eight attempts.
There’s only one match this weekend featuring two sides in the top six, held on Saturday between table-toppers Wolfsburg as they host Düsseldorf who haven’t won on the road in the league this season.
The champions host Hoffenheim on Sunday, with Nürnberg at home to Hertha Berlin taking place at the same time.
