Widmers Gorgeous Schlenzer rewards Bisse Mainz against Gladbach
It will be a game that is not boring, Gladbach s trainer Adi Hütter had said before the game at Mainz 05. However, the hoped-for spectacle remained alone. The Mainzer, in which compared to the 2: 1 success at Arminia Bielefeld Niakhaté for Nemeth was back in the starting eleven, made life difficult for the guests with a bitive start and dedicated two-fighting lead. At the front, the well-established Onisiwo and Burkardt should be directed. Lastly, two head balls just put just over (15th, 23.).
The Borussia, who acted after the 2-1 home win against VfL Bochum with a defensive triple chain, could hardly took place offensively. Without captain Stindl, started for the net, Gladbach initially found only once the gap in the Mainz Cover Convention: Elvedi headed in front of the gate (7.).
Cered game until Gladbach meets
Overall, the game was crushed, long ball possessions had rarity. As even Elvedi (28th) and Embolo (30th) were injured and did not continue, the play flow seemed completely gone.
After both teams had argued again, it was the Gladbacher, who first seized the initiative – and yet the leadership hit was something out of nothing: Zentner could not capture Bensbaini s spacer shot and replaced him before the feet of the Neuhaus substituted for Elvedi, who Only insertion had (38.).
The leadership did the combination of the guests well, the ball ran better. Mainz did not manage as well as at the beginning of the game to close the gaps. Bensbaini would have had to make his freestanding head almost mandatory (42.), Thuram can go for a strong pass of Neuhaus (45. + 4). Although Mainz continued to strive, but offensively lacked the puncture force. Only at Onisiwos Distance attempt had to intervene summer (44.).

Mainz turns up
From the cabin, however, the zero-fiver then came with significantly more steam and built proper pressure – and Gladbach had as early as the beginning of Arge problems. Lee forced summer with its 17-meter shot to a gloss parade (46th). Again and again it went over the right side in Mainz, on the Onisiwo tirelessly aging. His ones were mostly looking for Burkardt, found the storm partners conceivable just not (51., 60.).
Widmer swings wonderful
Gladbach had little to oppose the upturn main earners at this stage, except a well-established summer in the gate, which showed strong parades against Lee (64.) and Burkardt (65th). Nevertheless, the compensation was in the Mainz evening air – and he then fell: Widmer also swelled a too short defense of Koné wonderfully in the left Kreuzeck (76th).
In the final phase Gladbach tried again to increase the beat number, dangerous in the direction of Zentner brought the foals but no longer stood, too securely the mainzer defensive. Thus, the zero-fiver remain unbeaten in the fourth Bundesliga game in a row and leave the Borussia in the table further behind.
