MOnchengladbach -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. Ramy Bensebaini (20th) and Patrick Herrmann (22nd, 59th) scored the fourth league home win in a row.
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.
Wolfsburg in crisis
Coach Oliver Glasner has slipped into the crisis with VfL Wolfsburg. The Wolfsburg had beaten on Sunday in the German Bundesliga against 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.
Freiburg jumps to fourth place
The SC Freiburg continues to cause a sensation in the Bundesliga and has advanced to fourth place. The Breisgauer also won 1-0 (0-0) against Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to a 45-minute defeat on Sunday and thus, like champions FC Bayern Munchen, scored 21 points after eleven match days. The winner scored Nils Petersen in the 77th minute.
Before that, Frankfurt's Gelson Fernandes saw the yellow-red card shortly before the break. Frankfurt is bottom of the table with 17 points. In the turbulent stoppage also saw Frankfurt captain David Abraham after a romp on SC coach Christian Streich the red card. The same was true for the substituted Freiburg Vincenzo Grifo, who committed an attack on Abraham. (APA, dpa)
