Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann didn't have the best of starts in the German Bundesliga after his team could only play a score draw at the home of Borussia Moenchengladbach.
Nagelsmann and Bayern Munich are targeting a tenth straight league title this season. The Bavarian giants have won the German Bundesliga in each of the last nine seasons. The bid to win a tenth successive German Bundesliga title didn't start well following the 1-1 draw with Borussia Moenchengladbach in what was the first game of the new German Bundesliga season played on Friday night.
Borussia Moenchengladbach took the lead inside ten minutes through Alassane Plea. The French striker scored the opening goal of the new German Bundesliga season on ten minutes.
Poland international Robert Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in world football and he showed his quality with the equaliser against Borussia Moenchengladbach.Lewandowki broke the record for the most goals in the history of the competition last season after he netted 41 goals. The previous record was held by German football great Gerd Muller who scored 40 goals in two different seasons.
Bayern Munich appointed Nagelsmannas their manager at the end of last season after Hansi Flick left to take up the German national team job. Nagelsmann is one of the best young managers in European football having built his reputation at RB Leipzig. He led Leipzig to second place in the league last season.
Nagelsmann has not had the best of starts after a string of unimpressive results in preseason as well as the draw against Borussia Moenchengladbach in the first game of the new league season. The two goals scored during the game came in the first half as either side failed to score in the second half. Up next for Bayern Munich is the German Super Cup with Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday.
