(MENAFN - Gulf Times) Bayern Munich extended their Bundesliga lead to 13 points as Thomas Mueller capped his 250th league appearance with a rare goal in yesterday's 1-0 victory at Borussia Moenchengladbach. After second-placed RB Leipzig crashed to a 3-0 win at Werder Bremen on Saturday, Carlo Ancelotti's Bayern took the chance to go further ahead in the table as they edge ever closer to a fifth straight league title. This was Bayern's sixth straight win in all competitions in a dominant display as they created 18 shots on goal, to Gladbach's 14, and enjoyed nearly 70% possession.
Thiago Alcantara was the architect for Mueller's winner, flicking his pass over the Gladbach defence for the #Germany star to fire home his 93rd Bundesliga goal on 63 minutes.
It was only Mueller's second league goal this season — having scored 20 in 2015/16 — and his first since December, but he has turned provider this season with 11 assists in the league. Bayern created numerous chances before Mueller's breakthrough as Arjen Robben hit the post in the first-half and Robert Lewandowski forced Gladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer into a point-blank save with a header.
Lewandowski endured a fstrating afternoon and could not add to his 21 league goals in his race to be Germany's top-scorer with Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has 23. The only down side for Ancelotti was Xabi Alonso's yellow card, his fifth of the season, for a foul on Andre Hahn which means the defensive midfielder is suspended for Bayern's next game at Augsburg on April 1.

The hosts, who drop to 10th after the defeat, piled on the pressure at the end and had their chances to sneak a point as Swiss striker Josip Drmic was only denied by good defending by Bayern's Javi Martinez.
