Fabian Johnson sticks the knife in Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich has been virtually unbeatable this year, losing just once in 21 matches across all competitions and dropping just two points in 14 Bundesliga encounters. That was until they visited Borussia Monchengladbach and Fabian Johnson.

Gladbach got out to a 1-0 lead in the first half, and then put the match away with two goals a couple minutes apart. The clincher came from Johnson, who continued his torrid scoring pace. This time, he got behind the defense, takes a couple touches to settled and coolly finished past all-world goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

This was Johnson's third straight match with a goal, his fourth in three games and his sixth of the season. That's already a career-high for the United States international with more than half the campaign left to play.
