Klose rescues point as race goes to the wire

Bayern never fired on all cylinders away to mid-table Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday and were grateful to Miroslav Klose for the second-half goal which salvaged a point after the home side took the lead.

The 54,000 full house at Borussia Park saw Munich dominate first-half possession but make little headway for long periods against deep-lying and disciplined opponents. In a far more lively second period, Marco Reus put the home side ahead but sub Klose netted the equaliser, and for all Munich’s pressure, the winner refused to come.

The result means Bayern move onto 64 points from 32 games and retain top spot in the Bundesliga, but only on goal difference from Schalke, who dramatically beat Hertha Berlin in the last minute to pull level with the leaders.
