Bayern Munich 3-2 Fortuna Dusseldorf: Gustavo earns rare start in comeback
Bayern Munich launched a scintillating late comeback to grab all three points over a plucky Fortuna Dusseldorf side that twice led the match.
Goals from Thomas Muller, Franck Ribery and Jerome Boateng secured all three points for the Bundesliga giants and puts them into a 20-point lead at the top of the table.
In a surprise move, Jupp Heynckes dropped the in-form defender Dante to the bench despite the Brazilian having played every minute of the campaign so far.
However, there was room in the midfield for Dante's compatriot, Luiz Gustavo who was deployed alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Mathis Bolly put the away side into the lead with a 16th minute strike before Muller intervened to equalise for the Bavarians.
Andreas Lambertz put Dusseldorf into the lead for the second time in the 71st minute but Bayern hit back immediately as Ribery made it 2-2 just minutes later.
Boateng then grabbed the decisive goal to rescue Bayern in the dying stages of the match and gives them the win that they had to fight for.
