The end of the Europa League has had an effect. Despite an appealing performance, Borussia Mönchengladbach lost to VfL Wolfsburg 1: 2 (1: 1) after 94 minutes in the top class and thus missed the return to the top of the table. RB Leipzig thus remains the leader with 33 points ahead of Rheinländer, who now has 31 points in his account.

In a turbulent opening phase, Lower Saxony took the lead in the 13th minute through Xaver Schlager. Although a passive offside could not be ruled out on the TV pictures, the video basement in Cologne did not intervene. Therefore, the Austrian could look forward to his first Bundesliga goal.

Only 120 seconds later, the guests leveled through Breel Embolo, which was successful from close quarters. For the former Schalke, it was the season's sixth goal. Maximilian Arnold (90 + 1) gave Wolfsburg the three extra time.

"It was a committed performance from us from the very first moment. If you look back on those 90 minutes, we had more chances and therefore won in the end," said Wolfsburg VfL Sports Director Marcel Schäfer just after the final whistle. Cloud, Gladbach keeper Yann Sommer was combative: "It won't throw us off the rails."
