Borussia Mönchengladbach – RB Leipzig 3: 0: Foal with brilliant performance on Rose’s return



RB Leipzig - 1. FC Köln 3: 1: Nkunku dream goal paves victory against harmless billy goats

Marco Rose suffered his first Bundesliga defeat with RB Leipzig on his explosive return to Borussia Park. In the top game, which was overlaid by the “Causa Max Eberl”, the DFB Cup winner Borussia Mönchengladbach lost 0:3 (0:2) and initially lost sight of the top positions after the 7th matchday.

National player Jonas Hofmann (10th/35th) and Ramy Bensebaini (53rd) shot the ice-cold hosts to their first victory on Saturday evening in front of 50,186 spectators after three games without three points. For Rose, who was greeted with whistles and insults at his ex-club on the Lower Rhine, it was the second defeat in the third game as RB coach.

Leipzig and Gladbach will also be in lively exchange after the direct duel. In the forthcoming international break, an agreement is expected to change the long-time Gladbach sporting director Eberl to RB.

“It’s not that far anymore, we’re on the home stretch,” said RB managing director Oliver Mintzlaff before the game sky. Nothing will happen at the weekend. But: “I hope that we will have a final decision in the next few days,” said Mintzlaff.

The opponent and the personal details of Eberl and Rose provided plenty of explosives. The home spectators whistled at the guests in possession of the ball in the early stages with whistles.

Eberl (with posters) and Rose (with songs) were badly insulted. When a banner against club RB was presented in the north curve, referee Patrick Ittrich (Hamburg) warned over the stadium microphones that the game would be interrupted.

Hofmann puts together the double pack again

Coach Daniel Farke’s Gladbach players, on the other hand, concentrated on football, and they did so successfully. Nico Elvedi tested RB goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi with a header (9th), shortly afterwards the Hungarian also fended off Marcus Thuram’s header – but right in front of Hofmann’s feet, who dusted off from a short distance.

Leipzig recovered quickly and initially took control of the game. However, Josko Gvardiol (15th) and Andre Silva (25th) missed good opportunities. The Gladbach defensive wobbled a bit.

The offensive, on the other hand, worked brilliantly. After national player David Raum lost the ball, Thuram sprinted towards the guest goal and hung up at the right moment for the cool Hofmann. The international had already scored a brace in the most recent clash with RB in May.

With Timo Werner, who was initially rotated from the starting XI as one of four RB players compared to the 2-0 defeat at Real Madrid, RB started after the break. However, Gladbach remained dangerous.

The extremely strong Hofmann failed at Gulacsi (53rd). Shortly thereafter, Bensebaini lobbed coolly over the RB goalkeeper from a short distance. Rose took the next low blow almost motionless.
