Shell Shock Bayern Munich suffered their biggest defeat in the German Cup on Wednesday when their star-studded team lost 5-0 to Borussia Mچnchengladbach.
Full-power Byron conceded the first goal in just 71 seconds and was 3-0 down with 21 minutes to go.
It was the first time in 27 years that Byron had conceded so many goals so quickly in any competition.
It was Bayern’s heaviest defeat in the German Cup, which ended in a 5-1 defeat in the 1972 quarter-finals in Cologne.
French midfielder Kouadio Kone scored his first goal for Gladbach with barely a minute left, followed by Algerian defender Remy Bensibeni and Swiss striker Braille Embolo.
This is the second time in a row that Bayern have been knocked out of the cup in the second round after losing a penalty shootout at Holstein Kell last January.
There were many off-field disruptions for Bayern in construction.
Hours before the kick-off, French defender Lucas Hernandez heard he would avoid jail in Spain for violating a 2017 ban after accepting an appeal from a Madrid court.
Midfielder Joshua Kimich has also been the subject of heated debate in Germany after he revealed that he did not choose to be vaccinated for Covid 19.
Byron head coach Julian Naglesman was missing because he was alone at home after testing positive for coronavirus.
Moenchengladbach converted two of their six shots into the goal and completely dominated the initial exchange.
Byrne, on the other hand, tops the Bundesliga table while Gladbach is 12th, failing to get a shot on target in the first 20 minutes.
Gladbach took an early lead when a corner pass from Alfonso Davis near his hometown was snatched by a corner, who traded the pass with Embolo and kicked him out of the house.
There was pure joy in the stands at Borussia Park when Benci Beni scored the hosts’ second goal in the 15th minute, beating Manuel Neuer.
A penalty was awarded when Hernandez went high against Ambolo and Benci Benny erroneously sent Neuer to make it 3-0 at half time.
This is the second time that Benci Beni has terrified Bayern after the 26-year-old scored both goals in Gladbach’s 2-1 home Bundesliga in December 2019.
Embolo then added to Byron’s troubles by scoring two quick goals in six minutes to make it 5-0 after 57 minutes.
The festivities began with ten minutes left when the house fans sang ‘Oh, West Das Schwein’ (oh, how beautiful it is).
Earlier, Bayer Leverkusen also suffered a cup upset in the Bundesliga when they lost 2-1 at home to second division Carlsruhe.
South Korean forward Choi Kyung-rok hit the winner in the second round tie.
Holders are in Sunday’s draw for the third round after Dortmund won 2-0 at home against second-tier Ingolstadt on Tuesday.
