Bayern Munich Go Down The Table As Borussia Moenchengladbach Becomes 2nd
Thorgan Hazard netted twice as Borussia Moenchengladbach climbed to second place in the Bundesliga table — pushing
Bayern Munich down to third — after a 3 – 0 home victory over Fortuna Duesseldorf on Sunday.
Defending champions Bayern drop one place after being held to a 1 – 1 draw at home to Freiburg on Saturday , leaving
them four points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, who they face away in a crunch clash next Saturday .
Hazard, younger brother of Chelsea star Eden , has now scored seven goals in as many league games, as Gladbach bounced back from a shock 3-1 league defeat to Freiburg and 5 -0 thumping in mid – week at home to Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup .
It was a deserved win as Hazard netted a
penalty at the start of the second-half after
winger Alassane Plea had his shot blocked by a Fortuna handball.
“ I had a bit of luck today , the penalty (shot) wasn ’t so good , but it was good mentally to get the win after two defeats,”
admitted Hazard .
