Borussia MOnchengladbach has consolidated the league lead in the German football league. The front-runner defeated with OFB team player Stefan Lainer Werder Bremen on Sunday at home with 3: 1 and is now four points ahead of the pursuers RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. The VfL Wolfsburg suffered in the afternoon the fourth competitive defeat in a row: 0: 2 against Bayer Leverkusen.
Ramy Bensebaini (20th) and Patrick Herrmann (22nd, 59th) scored the fourth league home win in a row for Borussia MOnchengladbach. Bensebaini saw a yellow-red in the 87th minute, Leonardo Bittencourt shortened in stoppage time. Gladbach cheered 64 hours after the exhausting last-minute win against AS Roma in the Europa League again. For Bremer it was the seventh game without a win successively, so fell the team of coach Florian Kohfeldt back to 14th place. OFB U21 team player Marco Friedl was replaced in the 81st minute.
Coach Oliver Glasner has slipped into the crisis with VfL Wolfsburg. The Wolfsburg had beaten Bayer Leverkusen 0-2 and fell after the fourth competitive defeat in a row in tenth place back. The good start to the season with the first nine league games without defeat has long been forgotten in the VW city.
Bayer Leverkusen with OFB team captain Julian Baumgartlinger from the 42nd minute has overtaken Wolfsburg and has moved closer again to the international places. Karim Bellarabi (25th) and Paulinho (96th) defeated Austria's team goalkeeper Pavao Pervan.
In the now seven games winless Wolfsburgern was not much together. The three defeats in DFB Cup, Bundesliga and Europa League had left their mark. Although the VfL had the Leverkusen offensive largely under control. But the hosts did not even know how to stage themselves.
