Bayern Munich’s chase for their 31st title started without the maximum points.
MONCHENGLADBACH 1- 1 BAYERN MUNICH
ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI is already on track to win another league’s top soccer award. Can he beat the 41 goals he scored last season? Lewandowski became the first player to win the European Golden Shoe from the Bundesliga since the late Gerd Muller did so in 1972. Gerd Muller passed away on Sunday at the age of 75.
Robert Lewandowski’s goal against Monchengladbach was only good enough to prevent Bayern Munich from suffering a defeat on the opening day of the season.

Newly promoted Greuther Furth was on the wrong end of a 5- 1 score against Stuttgart, while fellow newly-promoted Bochum also suffered a ‘1-0’ defeat at Wolfsburg.
