Robert Lewandowski equalised as defending champions Bayern Munich were held to a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach in a hard-fought opening game of the new Bundesliga season on Friday. 


“It wasn’t perfect football from us,” Lewandowski told broadcaster Sat1. “We made a lot of mistakes, but the first game is over.” Gladbach deservedly took the lead when Alassane Plea fired past Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer with just 10 minutes gone. Lewandowski levelled just before the break from a corner, but both sides wasted second-half chances to grab the winner. Only superb saves from home goalkeeper Yann Sommer repeatedly denied Lewandowski and the Bayern attack.
