Mönchengladbach eased past Werder Bremen in a 1-0 victory on Tuesday at Borussia-Park. Borussia Mönchengladbach arrived with the intention of increasing their league score following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Stuttgart in their previous game. Werder Bremen were able to continue their winning streak after a 2-0 win against FC Augsburg in their last match. As the table looks today, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Werder Bremen currently occupy 7th and 13th spots in the table, with 28 points and 18 points respectively after 17 matches.

After a goalless first half, Borussia Mönchengladbach continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, following Nico Elvedi opening the scoring in the 66th minute. They managed to see the game out with a clean sheet and a final score of 1-0.

For Mönchengladbach, Lars Stindl, Laszlo Benes, Denis Zakaria, Ramy Bensebaini and Tony Jantschke came on for Omer Toprak, Josh Sargent, Romano Schmid, Kevin Mohwald and Jean-Manuel Mbom, while Werder Bremen brought on Niklas Moisander, Davie Selke, Milot Rashica, Leonardo Bittencourt and Yuya Osako to replace Omer Toprak, Josh Sargent, Romano Schmid, Kevin Mohwald and Jean-Manuel Mbom.
