First one eleventh meter packs up, then the important lead is achieved: Thanks to Thorgan Hazard, Borussia Monkngladbach remains the first pursuer of top rider Borussia Dortmund.
The foals defeated in the 400’s. Bundesliga game by Coach Dieter Hecking the brave ascender 1. FC Nuremberg earns with 2:0 (0:0). Alassane Plea (86.) made the eighth victory in the eighth home game perfect for the Gladbachers.
Hazard first awarded a foulelfmeter pitifully (45) before marking his ninth season goal (47). Borussia thus recorded a club record: For the first time the five-time champion won all home games in one round. While the Hecking Elf goes to the top game on Friday (20:30 o’clock) in Dortmund, the undefeated Nuremberg have been stuck on a drop-off point for ten games.
“I think everyone expected a win today. We didn’t allow much until the beginning. Nuremberg did not make it bad,”Hecking said at”Sky”:”In the second half of the year, we knew we had to make the gate. That is, of course, a good thing if it succeeds. We were desperate to win. Now it is necessary to prepare for Friday.”
1. FC Nuremberg fails early at the Latte
The FCN, who had to give up his best goalie Mikael Ishak in the short term, would almost have been rewarded for his courage: In the fifth minute a counterfeit shot by Alexander Fuchs landed at the bottom of the Latte, the following head-fall by Adam Zrelak guided Schlussmann Yann In the summer still to the corner.
Gladbach subsequently had more of the game, the second strongest offensive of the league found without the injured player Raffael and Captain Lars Stindl but hardly a remedy against the well organized club defense. Just before the break, the 42.323 chilling spectators were ripped from their seats when Tim Leibold cleared a head-butt of Denis Zakaria on the line (39.).

A little later Hazard failed slightly from the point where the Belgian took the ball over the goal. Prior to this, a foul of Ondrej Petrak at Florian Neuhaus, referee Robert Schroeder (Hannover) remained in his fifth Bundesliga game even after consulting the video assistant in his controversial decision. During the break there were clearly audible whistles in Borussia Park.
Corner, counter, plaza-Bud
Shortly after the change of sides Gladbach countered and met immediately. A sharp re-entry of Ibrahima Traore landed at the feet of Hazard, who easily carried the ball across the line. Nuremberg now took a much greater risk and offered Gladbach so much space.
As a result, the spectators finally paid the price. The guests continued to hide by no means, but Gladbach was closer to the second gate. Thus, a shot from Traor (75.) from 16-meters landed just above the gate. Plee completed an account just before the end freezing.
