Bundesliga: Mönchengladbach wins against Stuttgart

The crisis at VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga has not yet been overcome, but Borussia Mönchengladbach, after four games without a win, has managed to win again. The video assistant again provides for discussions.

Borussia Mönchengladbach scored three points at the start of the 13th match day of the Bundesliga. Coach Daniel Farke’s team beat VfB Stuttgart 3-1 (2-1) in front of 53,178 spectators in Borussia-Park on Friday evening. The sporting crisis in Swabia is getting worse – despite two recent home wins.

Mönchengladbach was better on track from the start. The Foals took the lead in the fourth minute thanks to a remarkable direct acceptance by Jonas Hofmann, who had returned from injury, following a cross from Alassane Plea. Stuttgart remained harmless in the early stages – the next setback followed in the 25th minute. Marcus Thuram made it 2-0 with a left-footed shot, after which VfB got into the game better and were rewarded in the 35th minute. Tiago Tomas scored the goal after an outstanding dribbling in the penalty area. Stuttgart then increased the pressure, but the home side remained 2-1 at half-time.

In the second half, the game remained entertaining with chances for both sides, but also with a lot of uncertainties and erratic finishes. Stuttgart pressed for an equaliser, but were unable to take advantage of their chances. Instead, coach Michael Wimmer’s team had to concede a third goal (90′ + 2′) from a counterattack by Patrick Herrmann, who had just been substituted on.

In the encounter there was also trouble again about the use of the video referee. After about a quarter of an hour, Gladbach’s Ramy Bensebaini should have been sent off after a slap in the face by Waldemar Anton. Referee Matthias Jöllenbeck pulled out a yellow card and, after watching the scene on the monitor, also stuck to his decision. As a result, there were repeatedly decisions by the referee that were worth discussing.

In the table, VfB remains in 15th place for the time being due to the renewed away defeat, while Borussia temporarily finds itself in 7th place.

The 13th match day of the Bundesliga will continue on Saturday afternoon at 3.30 p.m. with the games Borussia Dortmund – VfL Bochum, 1. FSV Mainz 05 – VfL Wolfsburg, TSG Hoffenheim – RB Leipzig, FC Augsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha BSC – Bayern Munich . Werder Bremen and FC Schalke 04 will play the top game at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Union Berlin will meet at 3:30 p.m. and SC Freiburg and 1. FC Köln will meet at 5:30 p.m.
