As we expected after their midweek 5-0 victory over Bayern Munich, confidence was flowing through the Gladbach ranks this time. Last night saw, in Bundesliga football results, Borussia Monchengladbach win again, this time by 2-1 over Bochum (the football news).
‘Die Unabsteigbaren’ thus missed the chance to claim their third successive Bundesliga win for the first time since November 2007.
Ans a result, they, Bochum, are now 14th in the Bundesliga table, 4 points behind their rivals Borussia Monchengladbach.
Bundesliga Football Results – Borussia Monchengladbach Win Again
What bore fruit for the Gladbach footballers in this German domestic fixture was their early pressure.
Joe Scally’s run down the right ended with him standing up a teasing cross to the far post. And that was where Alassane Plea was waiting to power a header into the bottom left corner. Their combined efforts made it 1-0 against the guests.
Bochum’s response to this initial lead was more one of solidarity than one that looked like scoring.
So, we aren’t surprised that it was Gladbach again, who were next to strike. We saw them doubling their advantage at home 5 minutes before the half time break.
Plea contributed once more to the team performance with his assist finding Jonas Hofmann inside the penalty area. As for the German player, he sent the ball beyond the visitor’s goalie.
Bochum tried their best to find a way back into the game, but simply couldn’t convert their efforts into a goal.
Still, in the 86th minute, Danny Blum hit an absolute rasper of a free-kick to hand Bochum a late consolation.
Borussia Monchengladbach – Bochum 2:1

Augsburg – Stuttgart 4:1
Goals: Oxford 30’, Gouweleeuw 52’, Niederlechner 72’, Finnbogason 81’ – Fuhrich 7’
