The hosts made a flying start and opened up a two-goal lead within the first five minutes thanks to Martin Stranzl and Mike Hanke.

Javi Martínez calmly pulled one back two minutes later, but Håvard Nordtveit restored Gladbach's two-goal advantage on a counter-attack three minutes after that.

Ribéry cut the deficit to 3-2 after 18 minutes to round off an exhilarating opening period, but although the visitors dominated the rest of the first half and created a number of chances, there were no more goals before the break.

Bayern were back on level terms eight minutes into the second half in stunning fashion through Ribéry.

Arjen Robben burst down the right before cutting back to Philipp Lahm, whose deep cross found Ribéry on the edge of the box.

And the Frenchman crashed home a stunning left-footed volley across Marc-André ter Stegen and into the back of the net.

Robben completed the comeback seven minutes later with a tidy back-post finish from Ribéry's cross.
