Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich suffered a shock 2-1 loss at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday on a day of high drama in the Bundesliga after Schalke 04 staged a remarkable four-goal comeback to draw 4-4 at Borussia Dortmund.

It was Bayern's first loss after nine straight wins in all competitions under coach Jupp Heynckes, who took over in October, and only their second in the league this season.

The defeat cut their lead at the top to three points, with RB Leipzig second on 26 after their 2-0 win over Werder Bremen.

Gladbach struck twice late in the first half, in the 39th minute with a Thorgan Hazard penalty and five minutes later through Matthias Ginter.

Bayern, missing several key players through injury, fought back with Arturo Vidal scoring with a low shot but could not get another despite twice hitting the woodwork.
