Marco Rose's team added their third straight win. He resists the thrust of his pursuers, Leipzig, second, who won the Berlin in Hertha, and Bayern Munich, who thrashed Borussia Dortmund. Four points separate the Monchengladbach from both and five from the Hoffenheim, which also won. He emerged victorious from Cologne.
Borussia Monchengladbach put his eighth victory in the Bundesliga on track at twenty minutes, in a foul thrown by Slovak Laszo Benes headed by Algerian Ramy Bensebaini.
Patrick Herrman went into action two minutes later to expand the local advantage. He received a pass from the Frenchman Marcus Thuram and, after taking advantage of a defensive error from the visitors, took the ball to the net to establish the 2-0.
Werder Bremen, who already has seven games without winning, did not turn his face to the game. He did not decline despite the fact that the VAR annulled a goal to the Japanese Yuya Osako that could put him fully in the match nor when Davy Klassen scored a penalty at the beginning of the second half.
Thus, at the time of the game, Herrman appeared again to take advantage of a center of the Swiss Denis Zakaria, score the third and sentence the clash.
The visiting prize did not arrive until the added time. Borussia was left with ten men for the expulsion, by double yellow card, of Bensebaini and Werder Bremen took advantage of it. An action initiated by the Kosovar Milot Rashica ended with a shot by Leonardo Bittencourt at the bottom of the goal. EFE
