Nagelsmann furious over Upamecano’s red card in Bayern defeat

The Bavarian giants went down to 10 man and lost to Monchengladbach away from home.

Bayern Munich’s return to Bundesliga after their exhilarating win at PSG wasn’t all that glamorous. Nagelsmann’s men suffered a 3-2 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach which could prove costly in the title race.

Bayern Munich started the match on the wrong foot as

Dayot Upamecano

was sent off in the eighth minute. The French international was caught bringing down Alassane Plea.

Lars Stindl, Jonas Hofmann and Marcus Thuram scored for Gladbach while Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting equalized the first goal and Mathys Tel scored a consolation game for Bayern Munich in the end.

Union Berlin could take over

Bayern Munich

’s top spot in Bundesliga should they win their match against Schalke while Dortmund could go on points with Bayern as well if they defeat Hertha Berlin.

However, Nagelsmann’s comments following the match focused much more on the decisions made by referee Tobias Welz.

Afterwards, Nagelsmann told Sky:

"In my eyes, Upa has only a minimal touch on his shoulder, but he doesn't pull.

"And you can see in the slow motion that Plea's shoulder does not move back a millimetre."

Insisting Welz should have explained himself, Nagelsmann added:

"You can decide all this, but maybe you could stand up after the game and say that the red card might have been a bit exaggerated.

"Everyone can live with it, he is also a person who sometimes makes mistakes."

Bayern defender Alphonso Davies hailed his side’s resilience after going a man down.

"It's tough having a red card so early in the match,"

Davies told Bundesliga.com.

"It's not good for any team, but we just kept fighting, we kept playing the way we knew how to play. We continued on.

"I mean, it's unfortunate with the red card. You know, it can happen to anyone. We don't put our head down. We kept our head up, we kept fighting."
