Bayern Munich win Telekom Cup

Bayern Munich have won the Telekom Cup following a comfortable 5-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, on Sunday evening.

Franck Ribery put the Bavarians on the lead after 18 minutes, when volleyed into the back of the net from close range, following a searching pass from Arjen Robben.

And Phillip Lahm doubled their lead on 23 minutes, when the German defender capitalised on a loose ball inside the box before slotting into the back of the net with ease.

Less than just three minutes later the Bavarians had their third, courtesy of Thiago, who chested a Jerome Boateng cross into the bottom corner.

Luuk de Jong pegged one back for Monchengladbach on the stroke of halftime, by converting  from the spot after Patrick Hermann had been felled by Diego Contento.

Pep Guardiola's men added a fourth late in the second period,  when Robben met a cross from Ribery before thumping a header into the back of the net, and Thomas Mullas grabbed the Bundesliga champions' fifth with the final kick of the match, to seal their victory in the Telekom Cup.
