049 2017/wk16 - Europe is far!

Two wins, a draw and two defeats – a pretty average April sees Gladbach on tenth position in the League. But with four games to go, the Europa League is still only a couple of points away. Still, the debut of Laszlo Benes and the derby-win over Cologne were highlights. Manuel talks you through the matches and provides an overview over the team’s current status.

048 2017/wk13 - The Foals Train stands still

After several great wins, the Foals train came to a stand-still, losing 1-2 to Hamburg and 0-1 at home to top-of-the-league Bayern Munich. In between more disappointment, as Borussia crashed out of the Europa League against Schalke. A 2-2 draw at home saw Gladbach being eliminated on away goals after the 1-1 at Schalke. A tough Saturday night ‘Spitzenspiel’ lies now ahead of the team of Dieter Hecking. Manuel talks you through the matches.

047 2017/wk10 - Heck-Heck-Hooray

Borussia is climbing up the League table, with another three victories against Werder, Ingolstadt and Schalke, only losing narrowly to RB Leipzig. In the Cup competitions it has been equally successful, with Lars Stindl giving the club a magic European night after a comeback against Fiorentina. The Foals were 0-3 down on aggregate, only to score four goals in 16 minutes and a Stindl-hattrick. To round up a great month, Hamburg has been beaten 2-1 in the DFB-Cup quarter-finals. Borussia now faces Frankfurt at home in the semi-final of the competition. Manuel talks you through the games and gives a quick assessment of the key points to manager Dieter Hecking’s success.

040 2016/wk40 - A soft penalty

A fantastic atmosphere in Mönchengladbach, Borussia hosted Barcelona in the Champions League group matchday 2. The foals went 1-0 through a Hazard-goal, but Barca turned it around with two goals in the second half. A great effort from André Schuberts team nonetheless. Only a few days later, it was yet another weak performance away from Borussia-Park, when Gladbach helped Schalke to their first points of the season in a 4-0-thrashing. A soft penalty and two more goals conceded within six minutes decided the game, just when Gladbach had made efforts to score and aim for only the second away win in 14 games (with only four draws). 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.

030 2016/wk12 - A game to forget

A dominant Borussia is held 2-1 by Schalke at Veltins Arena, in a match that some pundits afterwards described as “slapstick”. 22 shots on target, some clear-cut chances missed or denied by Schalke’s outstanding keeper Ralf Fährmann, and Schalke bags two goals through an own goal by Martin Hinteregger and a deflected shot off Granit Xhaka’s shoulder. Unbelievable. The team must not let their heads down, however, as this was still a very stong team performance, completely outplaying one of the biggest clubs in the League on their own ground. After the Easter Bundesliga break, it’s another big match for Europe when high-flying Hertha Berlin is coming to Borussia-Park on Sunday.

029 2016/wk11 - Next up: Schalke

Keeping another clean sheet at Borussia-Park, Gladbach sent Eintracht back to Frankfurt with a convincing 3-0 victory. Manuel talks you through the encounter which put the Foals back on Fourth. Before Borussia is facing Schalke 04 at Veltins-Arena on Friday night for a big game on matchday 27, Norwegian centre-back Havard Nordtveit has announced officially his departure from Mönchengladbach in summer, he’ll most likely be joining West Ham United.

019 2015/wk45 - Winning Streak Ends

The winning streak under André Schubert had come to an end, after the convincing 4-1 away victory at Hertha BSC Berlin the Foals drew to promoted
FC Ingolstadt at Borussia-Park 0-0. Still, good times at the club, back on sixth in the League and an impressive performance in the Champions League
against Juventus (1-1), which eliminates Borussia from the competition, unfortunately, but the race for 3rd spot which secures survival in the Europa League
is still wide open. In the German DFB-Cup, Borussia advanced to the round of last 16 with a 2-0 win at Schalke 04! Manuel talks you through all four encounters.
Thanks for listening and spread the word!

018 2015/wk44 - Good Luck Andre

Another successful week for the Foals, as Eintracht Frankfurt was comprehensibly dealt with on their own ground (5-1), before Gladbach secured their first ever Champions League point by goalless drawing to Juventus at Turin! This was followed by a 3-1 win over Schalke, with an outstanding performance by right back Julian Korb, scoring his first ever goal for Borussia. Sadly, Andre Hahn was badly injured and has to be ruled out for months to come. Manuel guides you through the matches.
