Bayern Munich ended the first half of the 2012-13 Bundesliga campaign on a low note on Friday, as they had to come from behind to earn a draw with Moenchengladbach.
An early Thorben Marx penalty left the hosts chasing the game. And while the Roten drew level through substitute Xherdan Shaqiri on the hour mark, they were unable to carve out a winner before full-time.
