Eintracht Frankfurt crushed 10-man Bayern Munich 5-1 on Saturday to send the visitors down to fourth in the Bundesliga, four points behind leaders Borussia Moenchengladbach, who won 2-1 at Bayer Leverkusen.

First-half goals from Filip Kostic and Djibril Sow put the hosts in the driving seat, with Bayern down to 10 after the ninth-minute dismissal of Jerome Boateng.

The Bavarians briefly cut the deficit through the league’s top scorer Robert Lewandowski, who has now netted at least once in each of his side’s 10 league games, but David Abraham restored Frankfurt’s two-goal cushion in the 49th minute.

Martin Hinteregger‘s header on the hour made sure of the three points before Goncalo Paciencia worsened Bayern’s afternoon, piling more pressure on embattled coach Niko Kovac ahead of next week’s big clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Gladbach, on 22 points, increased their lead at the top to three over Dortmund, who beat Vfl Wolfsburg 3-0.
