065 Oh REALly?

What can we say. Up and down against Mainz with the good result on our side, whereas the draw against Real feels like loss, doesn’t it? Manuel and Alexis discuss the past week and give a quick outlook of what’s ahead.

And here are the links to this week’s legendary goals:
Madrid, Rahn:

Leipzig 2-2, Plea 1-0:

058 2018/wk49 - The midfield dreamteam

Manuel briefly discusses the 4-1 victory over Hannover 96 and the 0-2 defeat to RB Leipzig before focussing on the current midfield constellation in the team. Why is the – still undefeated – axis Hofmann-Strobl-Neuhaus preferred to the likes of Zakaria and Kramer? Furthermore, will the Foals see a slump in form after Matthias Ginter’s head injury, which will see him out for two months at minimum?

051 2017/wk37 - Average again

Four matchdays into the season and Borussia M’gladbach is ranked one place lower than in the 16/17 season on tenth position. A strong comeback from two Leipzig leads to get a point from the 2-2 draw to RB was preceded by a weak performance and a loss to Franfurt at home and a late equalizer in Augsburg against the Foals (2-2). Still, the 2-1 cup win against Essen and the convincing 1-0 in the derby against struggling Cologne are positives of the first five weeks of the season, which undoubtedly have seen Borussia being ‘on’ and ‘off’ in terms of performance. Manuel rounds up these first games and highlights the talking points regarding squad, injured players and individual performances.

046 2017/wk06 - Still unbeaten!

Two more victories in the bag for Dieter Hecking as the Foals beat Freiburg 3-0 in the Bundesliga only to advance to the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal with a 2-0 win over Greuther Fürth. The next round will be played at Hamburg on March 1st, but before that it’s Werder Bremen away, AC Fiorentina in the Europa League and a cracking home match on Sunday against RB Leipzig. Manuel talks you through both games.

039 2016/wk39 - Big stage for Borussia

From Ingolstadt to Barcelona and back to Bundesliga – different flavours of football for the Foals these days. The squad of Manager André Schubert, whose contract has been extended until 2019 this week, mastered the difficult tasks against RB Leipizig (1:1) and Ingolstadt (2:0) well; now, they’re hosting none other than FC Barcelona at Borussia-Park. Truly a highlight for the club’s recent history, no matter the outcome. On Sunday, Schalke 04, with nil points after five Bundesliga matches, hosts Gladbach to matchday six in the League, before the League hits the break as another National squad weekend is scheduled.
