The Bundesliga is back, with Borussia Mönchengladbach on the road to face Darmstadt and Leverkusen in their stadiums. A big task for the new manager Dieter Hecking, as the Foals have been very poor travellers in 2016. A rather slow-paced 0-0 draw to bottom side Darmstadt was followed by a thrilling 3-2 victory over Champions League side Bayer 04. Borussia had even been down 0-2 at half-time, but Lars Stindl (x2) and Raffael turned it around for Gladbach, who now start to look like the team we all admired in the past five seasons. Manuel is your host and talks you through the matches and the first weeks with Hecking in charge.

Two more goal-festivals at Borussia-Park at the end of the Hinrunde. First, André Schubert’s squad was eliminated from the DFB-Cup by losing 3-4 to Werder Bremen, who capitalised on a poor second half defensive performance by the Foals. End-to-end-action continued against Darmstadt 98, which took the lead against Gladbach and looked like winners after the Red card for Granit Xhaka, but Borussia impressively bounced back with ten men, and Swedish international Oscar Wendt turned the stadium on its head when he scored a late 3-2-winner for the Foals. Manuel runs you through these matches and proposes three winners and losers of the first half of the season for Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end. Thanks for listening to Vollraute Abroad, merry Xmas and happy holidays!
