• German champions thrash Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-1
• Kylian Mbappé scores twice for PSG in 2-1 win at Caen
Champions Bayern Munich demolished their hosts Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-1 to join leaders Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga after Dortmund’s 2-1 defeat to Augsburg on Friday. The rejuvenated Bayern, who have won 11 of their last 12 league games, scored twice in the opening 11 minutes through Javi Martínez and Thomas Müller before two second-half Robert Lewandowski goals and a Serge Gnabry strike ensured the most straightforward of wins.
The defeat meant Gladbach lost a third straight home league game by at least three goals for the first time in their history. Bayern, who were seven points off the top a few weeks ago, are now level on 54 with Dortmund. Mönchengladbach drop to fourth on 43.
