Arjen Robben and Mario Mandžukić gave the reigning Bundesliga champions a flying start on Friday, but an own goal from Dante gave Gladbach hope before half-time.

But the visitors then came undone when Domínguez managed spectacularly to give away two penalties for handball in the space of 60 seconds.

Gladbach goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen pulled off a stunning one-handed save to keep out the first spot-kick by Thomas Müller.

However, bizarrely, the 24-year-old Spaniard handled the ball again immediately as he attempted to get in Robben's way, resulting in a second penalty in a minute.

This time David Alaba stepped up and made no mistake from 12 yards to put to bed any comeback from the visiting side.

"Both penalty decisions of the officials was right, I would have given them as well," said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola afterwards.
