IIn the last quarter of an hour the fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach celebrated only their "front runner, front runner", who is inexorably rushing from victory to victory, on Sunday afternoon also the home game against Werder Bremen 3: 1 by the results of Bensebaini (20. Minute) and Herrmann (22/59) won and with four points lead the table before RB Leipzig and champions FC Bayern Munich leads. Professional and serene, the "Elf vom Niederrhein" left the league break for two weeks. The fact that Bensebaini was sent off in the 87th minute via a yellow-red card was a marginal note. Like the only Bremen goal by Bittencourt (90 + 3).
Double goalkeeper Herrmann, who became a dad for the first time on Friday and was happy with his wife about the birth of a son, said: "Many have told me before the game, a birth inspired. There seems to be something in it. "The momentum of the currently irresistible Borussia from Mönchengladbach was also enjoyed by goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who was among the top contenders on Sunday. He was particularly happy about his first penalty since two and a half years.
"You need such a situation, so that it ends well for us." The Gladbacher pride on the latest success series articulated sporting director Max Eberl, who rated the 25 points after eleven games as an "outstanding quota" and two main reasons for the victory : "We decided the fifty-fifty duels for us and were more effective before the goal." Even coach Marco Rose took the "hat" in front of his "boys, as they have completed this block in eight games in a few weeks."
Four days after the exhausting 2-1 victory in the Europa League, the Borussia scooped out their remaining reserves. Favored by the old Bremen weakness in opposing standard situations, Algerian Bensebaini was first successful with a header after Benes' free-kick – his first Bundesliga goal. Favored by the new weakness of the Bremen goalkeeper Pavlenka, last week when 2: 2 against Freiburg an uncertainty factor, Herrmann increased to 2: 0, after the Czech keeper had initially cleared by eleven-meter distance from Pavlenka and a header still brought past Pavlenka, from the Herrmann did the best for his team.
And when the table fourteenth supposedly shortened to 1: 2 by Osako (26), referee Stieler discovered on recommendation of the video assistant on the television nor the previous foul of the Bremen Rashica to Zakaria. The Kosovare was Werder best in the first 45 minutes, but repeatedly failed with his shots best Borussia, goalkeeper summer, as well as Eggestein with a promising header.
But who then fails in a penalty as classes summer (53.), may not complain later. Referee Stieler was also grateful in this case, the reference of the video colleague Stegemann and saw so in retrospect, as Bensebaini the Bremen Osako had risen to the foot. How to make goals from opportunities, Patrick Herrmann showed the Bremen on his second goal when he wobbled his opponent Friedl and scored the low goal in the far corner the 3-0. It was the decision in a game in which the league leaders showed cool finishing qualities and Werder had lacked despite the late 1: 3 by Bittencourt at the necessary cold-bloodedness.
