Gladbach End Dortmund's Run

Borussia Mönchengladbach beat high-flying Borussia Dortmund in an important Bundesliga clash this afternoon at Borussia-Park,  to maintain their 100% winning home record. It was Dortmund's first league loss of the season.

Marco Reus came close to scoring against his former club in the sixth minute, but his curling shot from inside the box went over the goal.

Nuri Sahin had another chance for Dortmund from a free kick in the 14th minute, after Robert Lewandowski was brought down in a dangerous area, but his shot went high and wide.

Dortmund, and Reus in particular, began to create more chances and Marc-André ter Stegen had to be awake in the Gladbach goal to first stop a Reus shot in the 17th minute, then another from Mats Hummels moments later.

Ter Stagen was back in action in the 24th minute saving a shot from outside the box by Kevin Grokreutz, who saw another shot thwarted by the Gladbach keeper three minutes later.

Despite numerous chances for Dortmund in the first-half, the score remained goalless at half-time.

Martin Stranzl had a chance for Mönchengladbach in the 50th minute, but his header was saved by Roman Weidenfeller.

Pierre-Emerick Aubamaeyang came close in the 63rd minute but his right-footed shot hit the bar.

Jakub Blasczczykowski had a chance in the 80th minute but Ter Stagen was able to save his shot.

In the 81st minute Mats Hummels fouled Havard Nordtveit in the box, and the ref had no hesitation in awarding Gladbach a penalty.

Hummels was shown the red card and the home team team went into the lead as Max Kruse converted from the spot.

Sahin came close in the 85nd minute, but his shot from just outside the box missed the top left corner, and a minute later Reus hit the bar.

But Mönchengladbach made it 2-0 in the 87th minute, as Raffael scored from the right side of the box, his fourth goal of the season.
