Bayern Munich 1 – 1 Borussia Mönchengladbach: Weathering Tropical Storm Bayern

“Bayern ushered in their latest presumptive Bundesliga title with all the fury of a tropical storm, only to have Borussia Mönchengladbach survive with a well-earned 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena. After Bayern’s 2-0 derby win over Augsburg last weekend, the Bavarians have been all but declared Bundesliga champions (and rightly fully so) for the 2012-2013 campaign, given the 11 point gap between them and Leverkusen, as well as the 14 point gap between them and Dortmund. However, if this final match of the Hinründe was Bayern’s early victory lap, it was uninspiring for Jupp Heynckes’ legendary side. Although Gladbach was “out everything” (shot, possessed, passed, etc.), they played a focused game, mostly limiting Bayern to middling-quality chances on goal. Particularly, Lucien Favre’s Die Fohlen were well-organized and coordinated with their two back lines of four. Gladbach’s got to be happy with their form: two wins and two draws in their last four of the Hinründe.” Bundesliga Fanatic
