Borussia Monchengladbach came on top in a six-goal thrilling derby against local rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Eleven minutes into the game. Nico Elvedi’s header from Hoffmans’ free-kick broke the deadlock. But two goals from goal-machine Erling Haaland – one from acute angel and the other on the turn – swung the pendulum towards the visitors.
But Elvedi restored parity after the half-hour mark with a close-range strike. Then four minutes after the restart, Bensebaini restored Monchengladbach lead followed by Marcus Thuram’s header in the final quarter.
Second successive Bundesliga defeat means Edin Terzic's Dortmund slipped down to fifth in the table as Signal Iduna Park’s residents managed just one point from last three league games. Whereas, the derby win has lifted Borussia Monchengladbach to fourth, just four points adrift of second-placed Leipzig.
Both teams will be in league action again on Saturday, January 31: Borussia Dortmund will host Augsburg while Monchengladbach will travel to Union Berlin.
