Borussia Monchengladbach continues is good pace in the German Bundesliga after defeating Schalke 2-0 at their own home.
Borussia Monchengladbach is currently living the dream in the German Bundesliga.
The team is in second place of the table with just seven points less than leaders Borussia Dortmund.
Gladbach has won 13 matches out of 20 played, drawing three times and only losing four games.
And today, the team defeated Schalke 2-0 at their own home to continue their good run in the 2018-2019 season.
“I was a bit worried after the first goal. Chris’ shot hit my hand on the way in. I went to the referee and told him that it touched my hand, but I never intended it,” midfielder Florian Neuhaus said to the team’s official website.
“I think it was the right decision to allow the goal to stand. Toto did really well for my goal – he drove at the defense, played me in superbly and with a little bit of luck, the ball went in.”
“The two teams sort of canceled each other out in the opening half an hour. We remained patient though, didn’t allow them any real chances and denied them any good counterattacking opportunities,” defender Matthias Ginter added.
“We knew that Schalke would get tired and then make mistakes. Lars and Toto really took advantage of the first gap that appeared leading up to the red card.”
“It was a very good away performance. We were patient and stuck to our gameplan,” forward Lars Stindl commented.
“We barely allowed anything through at the back and our positional play in the final third was decent. We never gave up hope though and we got our reward. All in all, it’s a deserved victory.”
“We’re delighted to still be involved at the top, but it’s too early to think about anything more than that. The focus switches to Hertha from tomorrow – we can only be successful if we carry on thinking game by game,” coach Dieter Hecking concluded.
