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.

After now two defeats – a strange deja-vu is settling in – the Foals now face Werder Bremen in another Friday night Bundesliga clash at Borussia-Park. Both the match in Bremen as well as the DFB-Cup tie in December went the way of Viktor Skripnik’s squad, while Borussia hasn’t scored in any Friday night match since 2013. Given the poor skills in front of goal in Mainz, André Schubert will have to make sure Borussia is finding their way back into the competition to secure the first points in 2016! Manuel takes you through the Mainz game, the transfer deadline activities and the upcoming Werder-match.
