How Bayern Munich players reacted when Arjen Robben was subbed off vs Monchengladbach

As title races go, Bundesliga's has got to be one of the worst this season.

Bayern Munich extended the gap at the top of Germany's first division to 13 points with a narrow 1-0 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday evening.

With just nine games left to play, second and third-placed Red Bull Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund must now reluctantly admit the possibility of winning the title is effectively over.

Carlo Ancelotti's men have lost just one league game so far this campaign and their knack for winning came to the fore once again.

It looked like it was going to be one of those frustrating days when Bayern would dictate proceedings without finding the back of the net until Thomas Muller eventually broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute.

The German forward ended his Bundesliga goal drought - stretching back to December - with a cool finish after Thiago Alcantara played him through with a great ball over the top.

Arjen Robben had almost opened the scoring just before then when he hit the woodwork from outside the box but his frustrations didn't end there.

With just five minutes remaining, Ancelotti opted to take the Dutch winger off and replace him with Renato Sanches - a decision that didn't sit too well with Robben.

The 33-year-old made no effort to hide his displeasure at the decision and had a strop as he departed the pitch and into the dugout.

However, if Robben expected any sympathy from his teammates, he was sadly mistaken.

As you can see in the video below, while Robben continues to fume at Ancelotti's decision, Xabi Alonso, Franck Ribery and Jerome Boateng are among those sharing a genuine laugh at his expense.

Robben really wasn't a happy chappy!

Just to remind you, that is actually a 33-year-old throwing his toys out the pram because his manager took him in the 85th minute of a game. Hilarious.

The ex-Chelsea star didn't receive much support on Twitter either as most fans loved how his fellow Bayern players reacted to the strop.
