Monchengladbach versus Dormund | Borussia Mönchengladbach defeated a feeble Borussia Dortmund defence in a high-scoring Bundesliga match 4-2 (3-2), especially in the first half. On Friday night (11/11/2022), Jonas Hofmann gave the hosts an early lead in the fourth minute. Julian Brandt brilliantly equalised (19th).

Marcus Thuram and Ramy Bensebaini both scored twice to widen the lead (26 and 30 seconds), and Nico Schlotterbeck restored parity before halftime (40 seconds). Kouadio Koné lifted for the home team less than 60 seconds after the restart (46′).

Gladbach squandered additional scoring opportunities as a consequence, while Dortmund had practically no effective attacking plays in the second half of the game. The “foals” are presently in seventh place in the table, three points ahead of BVB, who is still in sixth.

“We gave up simple ambitions because we were incapable. As Julian Brandt chastised and acknowledged on “DAZN,” “We made Gladbach really powerful. It’s a nasty feeling.”

Hofmann scores the first goal.

Despite the fact that the Dortmund visitors had more of the football early on, Hofmann took advantage of his first opportunity to attack Lars Stindl’s pass. By accepting a perfect ball from Jude Bellingham with his thigh at the penalty spot and converting an unsustainable volley from the turn, Brandt equalised as a result of their pressure. Despite appearing to control the game, BVB kept making blunders on defence and finding themselves in danger.

Bensebaini headed the ball over the goal line to give the “foals” the lead following a free-kick cross from Hofmann from the right, then Thuram successfully finished off another counterattack. But the visitors persisted. Jan Olschowsky, the third goalie for Gladbach, twice kept the advantage over Youssoufa Moukoko and Gio Reyna (33′).

But he subsequently had little chance when BVB scored the following goal: First, Niklas Süle was denied by the goalie, then Schlotterbeck pushed the ball over the goal line when it was in close proximity.

Koné’s lightning strike After the break, Gladbach pressed the trigger once more to give the Dortmund-named player the next chilly shower. In his 400th Bundesliga match, Koné took advantage of a gap between the black-and-yellow defenders to score coldly between Mats Hummels’ legs to make the score 4:2.

Later, Thuram almost made it 5-2 when there was yet another mismatch in the Dortmund defence. But his attempt missed the target. After almost an hour, Edin Terzic, the coach of Dortmund, switched on the attacking power. Schlotterbeck and Emre Can have to make room for Anthony Modeste and Salih zcan, who entered the game.
