Bayern Munich were handed a sobering reality check by Heidenheim as they let a two-goal lead slip before losing 3-2.

If Thomas Tuchel had thought that Bayern Munich would turn over a new leaf on Saturday following last weekend's Der Klassiker disaster, he was badly mistaken. The Bavarians' season reached a new low as they inexplicably collapsed in the second-half against Heidenheim and suffered an embarrassing 3-2 defeat.

The result is another reminder that Bayern Munich's woes run pretty deep, and those in charge have their task cut out as they look to bring the club back to the top of the Bundesliga next season.

Bayern had actually started brightly against the resilient Heidenheim, with the Serge Gnabry looking dangerous on his return to the starting XI. The winger was the architect for Bayern's first goal, as he did brilliantly to pick out Harry Kane, who broke the deadlock with a well taken first-time finish.

Gnabry then turned from provider to goalscorer as he headed home from Alphonso Davies' cross to double Bayern's lead on the stroke of half-time.
